We stayed in a balcony room for 3 nights. The room was a good size, bed was a bit worn down, wifi worked well. The extra 1000 rupees for the room with a balcony was not worth it. The balcony is tiny, barely big enough to squeeze in two chairs, and there is no shade to escape the midday sun. For most of the day it is unusable, except for drying laundry, but that's forbidden. We only saw the owner when we arrived to sign in and he was absent for the rest of our stay. Rupa was excellent though, cooking us the best meal we had in one month in India.
The location is quite good, but by no means quiet. The local women do their laundry at the lakes edge. Bright and early they will be beating their wet laundry between their wooden mallet and the concrete surrounding the lake. It's a great photo op and gives the area some character, but if you're a light sleeper you may want to stay further from this part of the lake.
Overall Jheel is an okay place to stay. We would probably stay somewhere else next time and just visit the restaurant.More
