Look at earlier review with the title : “below average on most respects”. My family and I share their views equally.
Baba Haveli is located in a residential area and it looks eerie at night. First of all, nobody knew of it's location. We asked multiple people in the area before we stumbled upon it. When we got there, we had to wait more than 10 minutes before the front door was opened. Inside, we were welcomed by Mr. V and two young men who were sleeping on the floor just inside the entrance. Mr. V quickly tried getting us to check in and were in the process of doing so my mom asked if they had hot water. His answer was "Maybe there is hot water". This made us furious since first of all, we did not pay for a guesthouse and second, we were cheated of our money. We asked Mr. V of this hotel's rating and he said that it does not have any stars as its a family run business - more like a guesthouse or family run homestay. We went on to see the bedrooms just to feed our curiosity.
There is a long hallway after which you take a narrow spiral staircase up to the bedrooms. We saw 3 bedrooms - which were designated to us. The first room had a queen sized bed with its own bathroom. The second and third were the same with two twin beds each. The pictures provided by them on the website are somewhat deceiving. Right in front of the rooms is the sitting area with two tables (I am guessing that's where breakfast is served).
We could not stay any longer so we left without spending the night there and checked into another hotel in an area that looked more fitting to our needs. My family of 5 were booked into Baba Haveli hotel by our NOT SO GREAT TRAVEL AGENCY - HOLIDAY INDIA TRAVELS. Please DO NOT CHOOSE this travel agency - they overcharge, make promises and provide subpar services. This would be one of the the subpar services that we paid a lot of money for. We had paid for 3.5-4 star hotels during our stay in India. So, when we got here, we felt cheated of our money.
