The perfect place to stay for a while if you come in Jaipur, quiet environment even outside could be noisy, rooms are spacious and comfortable, and meals so delicious. When weather is better, you can enjoy your meal on the terrace. Ideally located at 29mn walking to the famous Hawa Mahal, and bazar. The family is always attentive and helpful.

This is a wonderful oasis in the frantic Jaipur old city. It is peaceful, clean and quiet. I love staying here. Manish is a great manager and can arrange many things. It is very close to many attractions and the area nearby is quite interesting too. And the breakfast is delicious!

First impressions very poor. Nobody available to let us in or meet us, once we found someone he told us to fill in paper work and he would give our passports back in half an hour, all he had to do was photocopy them so I said we would wait. Felt very unwelcome, very poor customer services, almost rude. The building is lovely and well maintained, with a roof top terrace to enjoy, a rest after a day exploring. We took our own drinks as nothing was on offer, it would be nice to be able to order drinks. Unsure if our hot water was working properly as shower started warm but soon ran cold- not good as it is a cold time of year. Some staff we met were friendly, helpful and keen to talk, which we appreciated including Prakash and Virendar. One reason we had chosen the property was after its representation on the BBC programme so it was nice to hear about their experience. Disappointingly when we saw the owner (as seen on the tv show) she didn’t seem to acknowledge us at all, or the poor service we were receiving, which seemed a shame. Trying to arrange a tuk tuk was also awkward and felt like we were a hassle. We had laundry done here- tried to give it on arrival, told to wait until the next morning so we did, but items received damp. This property has so much potential, especially having been featured on the BBC, and some helpful, friendly reception staff could really make a huge difference.

We really enjoyed our stay in this haveli. Everything is very good. The breakfastroom is very beautiful (and the breakfast is good). Dinner is really good and I would recommend eating their at least once. They serve beer and gin tonics. Khatu Haveli is in a very authentic neighbourhood: many cows (cow dung!). And all other farm animals are there as well. For dinner/lunch we went to Niro’s, LMB, Dream hostel and Lassiwalla. All were good. But these restaurants are not near the hotel! You’ll have to walk approx half hour or take a tuk tuk (100 rs).

Awful experience with Khatu Haveli from start to finish. Had booked 3 nights stay through Hotels.com with Khatu Haveli. On arrival at the Haveli, there was no one to greet us or collect our luggage. We proceeded to the reception area which was empty so had to ask one of the cleaners to get someone to check us in. The manager asked for our confirmation number and then proceeded to look for us in the system. We then saw our name written down in a notebook so assumed all ok. The owners, the brigadier and his wife then proceeded to tell us that they had no confirmation of our booking from hotels.com and that the Haveli was fully booked all week! We then complained and showed all confirmation details. She then proceeded to show us her “booking system “ which to our horror was a large notepad with rooms and clients written in pencil!! It’s no wonder they got our booking mixed up. We then complained to which the owners defended their position and said it’s not their fault. After debating for 10 mins, they had miraculously found a room for us. As we entered the room, one of the staff informed us that the room was actually the owners son’s room. On entering, the room was dirty, hair on bathroom floor, I cleaned bed sheets and used water bottles in fridge. We decided to stay the night as we had no where else to go. We found another hotel the next morning and paid for the nights stay and checked out in the morning. Never once did the so called brigadier or his snooty wife apologise for the mix up or even help us find alternative accommodation. We were appalled at their arrogant behaviour and their refusal to accept any mistake on their behalf. If you rely on a notepad and pencil as your main booking system, expect to encounter booking problems! Pathetic!!

We are so grateful for the outstanding service, attention to detail and care given to us by the wonderful team at Khatu Haveli. Nothing was ever too much trouble and our gracious Haveli hosts spent many hours sharing the history of Jaipur, the history of the family owned Haveli and their own travel experiences. We felt like we were treated as part of the family and would highly recommend this property without hesitation.

Maybe one of the most charming haveli in Jaipur, managed by a lovely family. We slept in the family suite during our stay, very comfortable with a direct access to the rooftop for the dinner. The meal are very delicious and typically Indian, we experienced one of our best breakfast there. Ideally dedicated to a romantic journey if you stay for a while in Jaipur.

Stayed here with my brother for 2 nights and then on my own for 2 nights and loved every minute! A beautiful, enclosed heritage building tucked away on a side road in a really great location in the fantastic old pink city of Jaipur. From start to finish everything was wonderful - a friendly and speedy check in, lovely traditional rooms that were spotless, the most fantastic staff who looked after us and for whom nothing was ever too much trouble. The breakfasts were tasty and generous and the delicious home cooked suppers were so reasonably priced. It was wonderful and a privilege to meet the lovely Susha and her husband Brigadier Amar Singh. I chatted alot with Susha and it was really reassuring to stay somewhere that felt homely and safe particularly when i was on my own for a couple of days. She was really kind to help out when I needed some medicine and the couple were also really kind and considerate when it came to my check out day. I loved my little room on the roof terrace and coming out directly onto the amazing roof terrace every morning with wonderful views and birds singing. I could go on! Loved it and will return!

Coming into The Khatu from a very busy and rubbish-filled street, we really appreciated the quiet, peace and greenery of the well tended courtyards. As other reviews have commented, the stairs are the penalty of a room on the top floor leading onto the terrace, but as we particularly wanted a room there, viewed it as a bit of exercise! The staff were wonderful- especially the manager, helping us with every little query and request, from tuk tuks and cars to best shopping and laundry. Breakfast was very good- toast, jam/honey, eggs, sometimes pancakes and a variable Indian item e.g Parathas, pakora plus juice, tea/coffee. Dinner at 450/550 for veg/meat was a bargain- buffet main with soup and pudding. Our room had everything required, even BBC World News. Good hot water too. My only reservation (and why I didn’t give it 5 stars) was that the room could have done with a heater- the nights did get cold!
