Fabulous haveli inside the fort!
We had three rooms: Rooms numbers 2, 5, 7.
Room 2 had a what they called a "magical window" overlooking the city. Truly majestic. We all sat there in the night, sipped tea and took in the sights.
The owner, Pankaj, is a great guy. Makes you feel at home and welcome. They really pamper you.
The showers had hot water, rooms were clean, food is lovely (only veg though).
The cook was always ready to provide anything we asked for. They made pancakes, poha , paranthas, sandwiches and coffee for breakfast.
The rooftop was amazing. We lounged around and basked in the sun all day and had our dinner there in the night. An old guy came in and gave us a taste of music from Rajasthan, and he was just great.
In short, they never said "no" to anything, which was just awesome.
Great repeat value.
Only thing to watch out for:
- The bathroom in Room 2 is small, though I understand Pankaj's situation since this is an old haveli and even he too is helpless with regards to the design. He has tried to make it as comfortable as possible. It is clean but short on space.
