Thanks to tripadvisor, I chanced upon this 'hotel' , while driving into Jaipur. The place is literally like an oasis. It is a family 'haveli' (a century old house), converted tastefully into more of a homestay.
Rooms : Seven rooms, each is quite spacious & comfortable. Most modern amenities included (except TVs!!). You can see some murals & lovely antique furniture in each room.
Facilities : We'll, be forewarned that if you're looking for a spa/gym/swimming pool or ritzy five star facilities, this is NOT for you. If you want to experience how Indian nobles lived a century ago, this works. The owners have fitted each room with fully functioning modern bathrooms, fridge, ACs etc. They have a nice courtyard, where you can sip your morning coffee in the midst of chirping birds...
The unique selling proposition : Its the people. The owner - Mr Durga Singh is an incredibly articulate & pleasant person. He will converse with you & make you comfortable. He has a repertoire of folk singers, and of course his own stories...
The negatives : Well, apart from the fact that the approach to this place is very crowded & passes thru the cramped old city, there are really no negatives.
