The havelli really has been carefully adapted to preserve its original charm, and the family still clearly cherish it as their home. We enjoyed the roof-top restaurant for our breakfasts and evening meals, and wonderful views of the old city and its blue-washed walls.
The old city becomes very lively between 10am and 9pm, and the noise from the streets takes some getting used to. The calls from the temples begin even earlier, and if there happens to be a wedding procession (there were 3 during our stay) then the music and fireworks will add to the soundscape. We enjoyed being immersed in the noise of the city (mostly) but some people might find it more of a challenge.
Personally, the wonderful views of this colourfull town, surrounded by the fort, the palace and the mountains, watching young monkeys play in the sunshine, and the friendliness of the staff more than compensate.
