Our family of 4 spent 3 nights in this family run Havelli. Getting there by taxi was a challenge as cars can’t access the winding alleyways of the old city so we had to transfer to two tuk tuks. But once there, the location was great, close to good local eateries & the markets close to the Clocktower were easy walking distance. Our two rooms were small but clean & most importantly had hot water! There was a lovely view from the rooftop restaurant over the city & the fort at a distance.

We had a pleasant stay in this place. The location is quite poor because it is located in small alley which only can be reach with rickshaw (tuktuk), but it’s near clock tower (sardar market). If you like to stroll around in the small alley and observe the locals life and their small shops, then location won’t be a problem. But during our check out,we must find rickshaw in the morning, we have to walk to the main street with our luggages, but the owner, Dhillip, is really helpful. He helped us carry our luggage, find us a rickshaw and pointed our direction to the driver and helped us to bargain the price as well. We had 2 rooms. One room was clean but the other one was quite dusty. Especially the toilet. When I wiped the toilet seat with a tissue,the tissue turned black. When

Dont get me wrong, when I say this is for the class, all I mean is is this place is for travellers looking for little more than selfies and buzzing shopping alleys. This the place where you would want to stay if you want to click the blue houses, the quiet lanes at night, talk to a local over a cup of tea, maybe get a real sense of old city, the place where the city originated. You can get a great view of the mehrangarh fort from the balcony. The staff is very helpful and cooked hot meal for me ( i was the only guest there during my stay). They were very courteous and helpful in whatever little help I needed. A special thanks to the owner, My booking was originally in the Juna Mahal boutique stay which was in one of the bylanes of Ada bazar without a view for the fort, when I

If you're expecting a hotel experience & service, this is not the place for you. It is run by a family that stays within the Haveli alongside its guests. The house is small and has a lot of stairs which I would not recommend if you are traveling with anyone who struggles with walking or with climbing stairs. I came with my parents and aunt who were at first put off by the strong sense of incense and how "run down" the place was. They opened up to Haveli once they learned more about the history of the house and accepted it for what it was instead of comparing it to a hotel. It's not run down at all, just old. Getting to the place was a little difficult and can only be reached by auto rickshaw. People on the street and know of the place and can direct you there in case you get

We arrived at night by tuktuk through the narrow road that leads from the the clock tower. The road is incredibly busy but not in a bad way. From the road it is a few steps up a most un prepossessing alley to the front of the Juna Mahal. A splendid sight and walking in through the large front doors you are transported to another time. The home stay is decorated throughout with original fixtures, fittings and decorations. Welcomed by the young man Ganesh, he brings us mint tea while he sorts out the paperwork then takes us up the several flights of stairs to our room. It is spacious, clean, beautifully decorated and has a balcony with view and a window view to the fort. He shows us the terrace up one more flight for eating and relaxing fetches us two cold beers and leaves us to

The King suite (Lord Ganesh room) we had was on the top floor. View from the room was very nice: the fort. Size of the room: ca. 4x5 metres. Bathroom normal size. Beautifully decorated room, but no suite. Location okay, but there are better locations closer to the main market. Badly or actually nót managed place. Owners are totally not interested in what is happening in the hotel. Our room has not been cleaned. And we had no hot water in the evenings. Nepali staff is friendly and are trying their best, but often had to say ‘not available’ when it came to the menu.

Our family of 4 adults just spent 3 nights at this central Havelli. Down an alley off the Main Street, it was still quite noisy at times from a nearby mosque, street dogs & motorbikes. You can only reach it by tuk tuk. The rooms were smaller than expected & the stairs very steep, but the Havelli is charming & has a small roof top with a view of the fort, but many other places do too. Vijays local restaurant about 10 mins walk away on the road to the clock tower serves the most amazing lassis & warm buffalo milk at night. And we had the best hot showers to date in India! Overall we enjoyed our stay but daily fresh towels & topping up of toilet paper without having to ask would have been welcome.

We really enjoyed staying here: The very helpful Ganesh, wonderful roof top view, and location to the rest of the city all excellent. Organising meals can be a little hit and miss and I think you have to prepare them in advance if you want to eat. That said things can be organised very quickly. We met the owner once, he was very helpful, and keen to provide safety advice about local tourist touts (though I thought the city was quite safe really). There are lots of stairs to the upper floors, and this may not suit older people, also be aware that taxi cars can not make it down the narrow streets and lanes to the hotel, so you have to use a tuk tuk (which is fine). Very clean and comfortable, attractive exterior, good wifi, but the property is down an alley way, which may appear

Despite arriving much earlier than expected we were welcomed warmly by owner Mr Joshi, who we didn't see again during our three-night stay. From then we were left in the capable hands of Ganesh, who carried our bags up the vertiginous stairs to our top-floor room, served us food and drink at all ours of the day and night and regaled us with wonderful stories of his home in Nepal and his complicated romantic entanglements! Our room (Lord Ganesh) was like an eagle's lair, with dual aspect views towards the fort and over the blue city. Imaginatively decorated with interesting Indian artefacts, it was generous, light and airy, with good clothe-hanging facilities and a large comfortable bed. The en-suite was clean and everything worked! From the tasty pakoras we had on our arrival,

Greeted on arrival by the old mumma and the wonderful, Ganesh, with a cup of tea. After the hair raising tuktuk ride this was most welcome. Our rooms were big, comfortable and clean. Which was great as I was sharing with my 70 year old mother. The historic homestay is atmospheric and takes you back to old India days. Just be aware of the narrow stairs up to the rooms and the roof top eating area. We spent sunset on the roof over looking the blue city, drinking cold Kingfisher beer. Ganesh, the young man who works here, is lovely. Couldn't be more helpful and friendly. He really made our stay with his stories from his hometown of Nepal. The owner's young son set of fireworks for us one night. And the food? Wonderful! Delicious, tasty curries for dinner and mouthwatering banana
