“Decorated, modern, comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2008

We stayed in Oasis haveli after Shahi palace told us it had no room left (actually it is the same owner) The hotel is new and almost an exact copy of Shahi palace.
Rooms are quiet, big and comfortable. The decoration is gorgeous (alcoves with sculptures imitating the ancient havelis) but many rooms do not have windows. A very good mid range hotel.
Service is correct. Free pick up at the bus stand (call Shahi palace for booking) Prices range from 400 to 1000 approximately (bargaining is recommended)
The restaurant on the rooftop in Shahi palace is charming at night.

  • Liked — Pleasant rooms, good service
  • Disliked — No window in the room
  • Stayed August 2008, traveled as a couple

First we wanted to check in the Shahi Palace hotel but as booked out we were offered the newly built Hotel Oasis Haveli which finally was the perfect choice.

The location is ideal as quite but still only some minutes walk from all the sights.

The view from the roof top terrace is a great experience at any time of the day. As the roof top did not have any roof top restaurant at least at the time of our stay the terrace was never noisy and full of tourists which is a clear advantage.

If you want to have a good and tasty meal just go 2 mins to the Shahi Palace roof top restaurant - enjoy your meal - and then get back on your "own" terrace to enjoy the view!

The rooms were clean and nicely decorated in the local style.
The service was extremly observant and helpfull and made you feel like being guest in a family. Very important to mention if you travel during the winter time in January: hot water! This important detail especially for "western" tourists was always available and could be additionally requested at any time of the day if needed as they heat the water with wood.

  • Liked — Quite location and roof top
