“Terrible, never again.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

I travelled with my wife and 4yr old kid, and also my father. All of us are seasoned travellers, and my father and I have had plenty of experience in India....

This time round we had 4 days in Jodhpur in the midst of a two week break. I chose the Hotel Haveli via finding their website, and from reading the Lonely Planet write up of it which claimed it was "popular, efficient and friendly". The hotel's website stood out amongst others as you could immediately check availability and book online, which was something I needed to do at that time.

Lonely Planet also states the hotel is in a 250 yr old building, I doubt that fact, but what I am certain of is that the hotel hasn't been cleaned in almost 250 years.

We arrived mid afternoon, and our two rooms were not ready. Promises of them being ready in 10 mins became 1 hour etc, and only after badgering the reception guys to get a move on did anything happen. I know this was India etc etc, but really they were basically making no effort at all, stringing us along.

The rooms were basic, with chipboard furniture and fixtures and fittings. We had two rooms, and in one the room was filthy. Dusty, un-kept, bathroom in need of decent clean. Windows were ill fitting and made of scratched perspex.
Bed felt like it had mites. All bedding/towels were needing replaced/burnt. I asked for the room to be cleaned and it was supposedly done so in a 2 min visit by cleaner, personally I think he just sprayed some air freshener...

The roof cafe does have a splendid view of the Mehrangarh Fort, but then so does every roof in Jodhpur...

The 'Heritage Rooms' with view of fort...mmm, well, you could see a bit of the fort. To see the whole fort you have had to open the scratched perspex window and leant out, but frankly I didn't take the risk...

We found the food in the rooftop restaurant to be very poor, and the dishes it was served in to again be in dire need of a clean. Eating breakfast porridge, on day one, out of plates with the previous nights curries on them, amidst uncleaned tables sitting on used-tissue strewn flooring (whilst waiters stand idle) sets the scene...After that we refused to eat there, instead we visited a very nice restaurant, with fort views, good staff, great food, and nice ambience just around the corner- the Jhankar Choti Haveli.

In the evening there is a live Rajasthani folk music ensemble playing on the rooftop restaurant. All fine and well unless you're room is on the floor below in which case it's Rajasthani noise and stomping keeping you awake...

Yes, the Hotel Haveli rooms were cheap'ish, 1,900 Rupees or so, but still, it was dirty, tired and far from relaxing or enjoyable to stay in. The staff gave no feeling of caring. For the money you'd expect more, even in India.

It was the type of place where, even if you were tired, you'd rather be out than sit in the room.

I would not recommend it.

Few meal experiences compare to the awe-inspiring view of the Mehrangarh Fort while eating traditional Rajastani dishes cooked to order from the rooftop restaurant here at Hotel Haveli. The rooms have character, including window seats that look out over the city. Due to overbooking, we were moved once, which was annoying, but not too big of a hassle. For this price range, the rooms were very comfortable and the hot water was a welcome plus after our previous hotel. The staff were also very helpful in organizing transportation. Plus, the location is spot on -- 10min walk to the Fort, 5 min walk to the Clock Tower market, and near many other restaurants to try.

The view from the Hotel Haveli is great, both from the rooftop terrace as from our room.
The location is very central, but in a filthy town as Jodhpur you might as well want to stay out of the centre, because the only thing really worth seeing, is the splendid fort.
The room was dirty and shabby, the sheets and towels had stains on them.
This hotel used to be called "Haveli guesthouse", and it really still is more of a guesthouse than of a hotel.
We stayed 2 nights and they did not even make up our room after the first night.
Be also prepared to take a cold shower. During summer this may be refreshing, but in December it is only aggravating.
Finally, I had the unpleasant feeling that they tried to cheat with the check. I had booked online and paid 4.665 Rs by credit card. The reservation website connected to the hotel website had sent me the confirmation. A couple of days later, I got an email directly from the hotel, confirming my booking, and stating a price of 4.900 Rs. Meanwhile my credit card got charged for 4.665 Rs.
When I checked out, they told me that I had to pay 4.900 R, so I told that I had already paid online at the time of booking and after 30 seconds of "checking" (i.e. staring at a piece of paper), they told me it was ok. Not a big deal, but unpleasant.
My advice: don't stay at this place.

We had our doubts about the quality of this hotel before we arrived- because it was described as 'budget' by Lonely Planet, and also because it was so cheap! But we were really pleasantly surprised. The room was very authentic, with proper Rajasthani decorations and a large bathroom, and they also provided a proper bed for the 3rd person in our room (most places in India only provided mattresses). My only complaint about the room is that there is no hot water! But to be honest it was so hot in Jodhpur that no one in their right mind would want to take a hot shower. The restaurant upstairs had an AMAZING view of the fort- which was a 15 min walk away, and had talented Rajasthani folk singers and dancers performing most nights. The staff here were awesome- really friendly- had lots of banter, telling us of the celebrities they had seen in Jodhpur (Liz Hurley got married there), and of crazy antics such as how they had recently rescued a cow which had fallen into the open well in front of the hotel. It was also a nice place to meet other travellers. However the restaurant food wasn't great, and for one day, they didn't have a chef- so basically everything on the menu was not available.

Great view from rooftop restaurant, that's where the great ends, room was poor, the sheets were filthy with dried faeces, and the air conditioning cost extra, the waiters in the restaurant were incompetant.
