Basic room.

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 8, 2014

On the main road roughly halfway between the centre of town and the Man Sagar lake on the way to the Amber fort, the hotel was being renovated in part while we were there. The ex-manager had let things go for too long and then did a runner. But this didn't affect the good humour of the owner and his staff. The room was large enough but pretty basic, although clean and comfortable enough. Breakfast was taken on a first floor terrace and was quite consistant. Dinner was taken in the downstairs dining room and was adequate.

We paid 1400 INR (17€) for our room inc b/fast.

Directions: From the city centre take the main road to Amber fort. After 2 kms you'll come to Jorawar Singh gate, and it is the last street on the right just as you get to the gate, direction Samode Haveli and it's there 100 metres down.

A Touch of Rajasthani Class

Mahar Haveli is a class act. This is a new enterprise that ticks all the right boxes. You should get in quick, in 2-3 years the prices for this place will be much higher as there will be a queue to get in!

White marble floors, delightful stained glass windows, and countless elegant deft touches give the Mahar Haveli a classically Indian Colonial feel. And what's more the service matches the tasteful decor.

We have been travelling across India for 2 months now, and we have come to expect Indian hotel standards; where the advertised hot water is luke warm and trickling, where you have to work & tip the staff to get clean towels and sheeting and where the room is a grotty disappointment, the Mahar Haveli is very much otherwise; This is a family business and you feel the family's refined and cultured pride and commitment to the product.

The only concern, is that early morning temple prayers, which last 10-15 mins, woke me early in the morning, but I am a light sleeper who likes to sleep in. I also think you'd be hard pressed to find a room in this ancient city that was free of these chants.

Unique Quality: The restaurant is wonderful. It is on the rooftop and it is encased in a tastefully decorated tarp. It feels like you are in the heart of the desert. The food was described as "homily" and it is just that, yummy, hearty and the curries don't leave you with that heavy gravy hangover. You must order the sensational aloo paloo (potatoe and gravy)

Wifi was an unexpected bonus, the advertise that wifi is available in the restaurant and reception area. But I am writing this review now from my room, with an old laptop.

Directions: Just inside the old city walls (Jorawar Singh Gate). As you enter this gate the Ayurvedic Hospital will be on your right. There is a little street on your left, the hotel is about 100 metres down the this street.
