-pick-up from the train station, although the driver had no name-card, so when he asked if we wanted a rickshaw we said that we had a pick-up with our hotel, and he said he was the guy! A little odd. We were also transferred to a different rickshaw as there was another girl arriving, and the guy cheekily tried to charge us even though we knew it was included, so stick to your guns if this happens to you!
-it's centrally located, so you if you have the energy, you can walk to the clock tower in one direction and to Meharangarh Fort in the other
-from the roof terrace there are magnificent views over the blue city and to the fort
-on our last day we were allowed to leave our bags all day and to have a shower before leaving
-there's an off-season discount of 20%
-no cleaning of room or bathroom - one night there was even a cat poo in front of our room that stayed there til well into the next morning
-had to ask for sheets as the bed cover was not really clean
-service in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner was very slow, and certain things were not available
-email response was non-existent, automatic reservation forms only, which was frustrating if you had questions or wanted to confirm train arrival etc
-you have to pay a deposit in advance to confirm the room, the only place where we had to do so, but in common with Mr Joshi's other guest house
