Burja Haveli Hotel
Ranked #7 of 23 Hotels in Alwar
Reviewed 17 October 2010

I have just come back from Burja Haveil. At the outset, without wasting much time, I must tell you it is a good place, “value for money” “Paisa Vassool” . Having read mixed reviews at the various sites my expectations were very low. We had a great time!!! It is a great value for money weekend get away. Where would you get to live in a 200 years old Haveli within 160 km from Delhi, one night two days in a Super Delux Room, for just Rs. 3200.
The Haveli is in the Burja village adjacent to the Burja Garden which is a stone throw away distance. A small road (less than 10 meters wide) separates the Haveli from the Bagh . The Bagh is in the Mougal style it is well maintained. The grass is lush green with a lot of trees ( Amla and Banana are noticeable). The swimming pool in the bagh is dis-functional. I was told that a new swimming pool would be constructed before the next season.
The Bagh is reasonably big (a few acres) the Haveli is comparatively small (less than an acre). The Haveli is two storied square in shape with a court yard in between. The courtyard has grass on each corner and a fountain in between. The rooms are much larger than expected and the bathroom is bigger than some of the rooms. All basic amenities have been provided for: split air conditioner, min refrigerator, tv with cable connection, large bed, dresser , seating chairs . The toiletries are average. Nothing astounding but everything reasonable and necessary to make one comfortable is provided.
Haveli is well maintained, neat and clean. Food is great for an Indian pallet. In the package any thing and everything on the menu card is free, order what you want it is not buffet …………… they would be happy to customize dishes to your taste. Do not miss to order Burja special dish …………… Non veg is not the part of the package but everything is available on orderand would be charged separately.
The experience is better than a hotel for the reason the family which has owned the Haveli for the last 200 years still resides in it and manages it. The staff is courteous and has been associated with the Haveli and family for generations. There is piped music in the courtyard and special arrangement for entertainment by the local artist.
If your expectations are of Neemrana or Samode you may be disappointed but if you are looking for value for money you may end up with consumer surplus. To end it is highly recommended for a weekend get away.
Cheers
Manish

I visited this place in September 2010.Along with my wife and another couple. I travel a lot and usually book hotels on the internet so sometimes i am pleasantly surprised and sometimes i am disappointed. Burja Haveli appears awesome in the pics that they have put on the internet but it is not as good as it seems. Firstly looking at the pics on the hotels site it seems the hotel is a Big one (because of a Picture of a Lawn with a horse in it under a canopy) but actually the hotel is quite small for a heritage property it is just a courtyard (the one with a fountain in the middle see pics on their site) and rooms all around it the picture of the horse in the lawn is actually a lawn owned by the hotel across the road.But yes whatever they have they have maintained it well and the courtyard is quite beautiful and makes for great pictures as well. The dining hall/restaurant is a little cramped , the service is just OK nothing to write home about. Now about the positives I stayed in a super deluxe room the rooms are large they have a good split a/c.Rooms are clean tidy and give a feel of staying in a heritage property. Bathrooms were spacious and had a bath tub. No doubt the property was a bit cramped (maybe i am comparing it with places like neemrana) but considering the fact that i paid almost 1/3 or 1/4 of the price i would have paid at a place like neemrana or sariska palace , and on top of that i stayed in a big comfortable room and enjoyed the trip i definitely recommend this place . At Burja you can stay in a heritage property without burning a hole in your pocket but then you get what you paid for so dont expect great shakes.

Burja Haveli is a decent hotel near one of my new work sites. On a recent trip had to stay overnight so picked it. Although the entrance and overall appearance gives a look that it is not a very active & popular hotel with regular tourists, but the rooms were decent with splits air conditions and reasonably nice & reasonably priced. Bar & Restaurant were just average.

This is a great hidden gem near Alwar. We booked this property with some hesitation, since we couldn't find much information about the place online, but were very pleasantly surprised during our stay.

This haveli is not your typical overpriced heritage property experience, but is rather a genuine haveli with clean, spacious rooms, good service and great food. A staff member showed us around historical rooms and photos in the Haveli, which also had nice lawns and a roof top with decent views of the surrounding area. We got some great prices, and it is an awesome value for money in my opinion. Moreover, they had a nice family suite (two rooms) where five of us were able to stay very comfortably.

One con is its location - if my memory serves me right, this is located on the highway to Sariska, and is a few kms away from Alwar city - this may be a good thing or bad thing depending on what you are looking for. Also, right behind the haveli is a pretty congested village and we could hear cows mooing from our room - this added to our experience, but could be off-putting for some.
