The most important thing about this haveli was the service, especially by the management. I had gotten sick, and the manager got me a doctor and checked on me. Otherwise, I might not have gotten better. At night they have live traditional Indian music by candlelight which is lovely. They offer free yoga in the morning but I didn't get to try it as I was ill. They give you a complimentary boat ride at night on the Ganges to see the evening rituals. The only thing is that being on the Ganges with a river facing room and a fan open to the Ganges I got some mosquitoes in the bathroom in the evening - more so if you leave the light on at night. I had a very large fly at one point - but hey this is the Ganges what do you expect - but they will come kill it for you.
