Pahuna Haveli
Ranked #124 of 273 Udaipur B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 17, 2009

After staying in a couple B&Bs in Delhi and Rajistan, we were excited about the pahuna Haveli, after seeing the reviews. At first glance it seemed very nice. The house is beautiful, and the rooms are fine. However, the value of this place is terrible. We paid the price that was listed in the Lp, but it should really be about half that based on what we were paying for similar hotels throughout our travels in India.

After one night, we realized that the price didn't match the service and we decided to leave a night early. Our room came with breakfast included, and it was disgusting. Mushy porridge and an overcooked egg on the first day, and on the second day, they actually served us a half cooked egg. We didn't mention it to the owner, who was sitting with us, because we were ready to just get out of there. However, she clearly knew the egg wasn't cooked because we could hear her admonishing the cook for it after we started heading for our room. If she noticed it, then she should have fixed it. That one moment really left a sour taste in my mouth for this place.

The owner seemed nice, but there were too many issues. I could recommend pahuna haveli if it was half the price. Otherwise, find somewhere else.

Pahuna Haveli has a unique mix to offer - comfort, peace, delicious home cooked food etc etc. Beautiful architecture and spacious rooms which are neatly maintained provides a complete home stay feeling even being away from home.
The hospitality extended, in terms of local travel, historical facts & places, food and delicacies in & around city, by Ms Kumari and her family is truly a sign of Rajasthani culture which gives a traveler an edge to an alien city. Their association and knowledge on the city’s history is worth exploring.

The Haveli is located in nice and silent place, reaching to any city attraction is just few minutes tuk tuk ride.

Pahuna Haveli is truly a special place to stay. In a city with the likes of the Lake Palace hotel, the City Palace residence there is little shortage of choice. However after seeing the luxury five star properties I knew I made the right choice staying at this homestay.

The imposing Haveli styled building is beautiful, the grounds immaculate but most importantly the feeling of being part of a home the best attribute. The calm interior and pleasant gardens allows time to relax. The rooms are unique, immaculatley clean and comfy. The hosts, Hemant and her husband are a true testimony to Rajasthani hospitality and make your stay even more enjoyable. You can leave and enter as you wish, location is good only a short rickshaw ride away from the old city (maybe 30-40 rupees, 40p-50p). The food is all home cooked and well worth staying in on a night to sample the cuisine.

Well worth getting away from the traditional hotels and immerse yourself in Rajasthani hospitality.

We were a group of 4 women. This was our only homestay in our three week trip of India. After this wonderful experience we all wished our travel agent had booked more homestays. Hemant and her husband were gracious hosts in their lovely home close to the city. Spacious and relaxing after a long days touring, it was a lovely refuge. We also ate excellent home cooked meals both nights we stayed.Highly recommended.
