We stayed at the Haveli so that my wifes sister and husband from Kerala could get the real feel of a Haveli of Rajastan. To that extent yes it was the right place to stay. For starters , since we were coimng from Delhi we drove down in our own car. The drive is not a very pleasant one, with the roads under repair at various places. Reaching the Hotel or the Haveli would certainly have been impossible without my GPS which fortunately pinpointed the place with such accuracy that we did not even once stop to ask except at the entrance ....since there is no sign board of the Haveli in the front ! The entrance is a little un-nerving since the front of the haveli is yet to be renovated. Once we crossed the front row of the haveli the next layer was fully developed and once we saw our rooms we were very happy. It is indeed a typical Haveli so dont think it will be like a hotel. The whole scene is very informal and the owner and host Mr.Sanjay was a very pleasant and helpful man. The suite we were staying in was decorated very tastefully and was really very good. The bathroom was modern and there were no cleanliness issues. However the disturbing fact was that, we had to waste at least 10 MINUTES of flowing water to get hot water. This definitely needs attention. The dinner was served on the terrace. The ambience was simple but very relaxing. The food especially the "lal maas" was very tasty and the waiters very friendly and informal. However the breakfast definitely needs to be improved both in quality and well as the variety offered.
One of the biggest advantages is the location of the place. Since the older part of Jaipur is very crowded, all we did was park our car and take the autorickshaw . The distances to all the major tourist areas including the shopping are within walking distance , but an auto ride is recommended for those not keen on long walks like my guests !!
All in all we had a great time.
