This hotel is in a really remote part of Jaipur and it took forever for the cab driver to find it. As I entered, I saw people doing their laundry in the courtyard and I was certain I was in an old apartment block. I saw a bell, rang it and a bit later an elderly man showed up assuring me I was in the right place. He took me to a spacious, even palatial room and then moments later someone came with refreshments. Nice, friendly touch. This beautiful haveli house is ancient and in need of a little TLC but it's still comfortable enough. Climb up onto the roof for a spectacular place to watch the sun go down over Jaipur. My only real gripe is the price per night which I feel is too high for what it is. I've stayed in much nicer haveli's for half the price. Nonetheless, I enjoyed my time here and would recommend it.
A Beautiful Place

This place was very beautiful and there was a lot of space in each room, so we could have slept more than two people to a room. I think the only downside was the shower didn't really have a stall or anything, so the water got everywhere. Other than that we had a wonderful time and the staff was very accommodating and friendly.
Delightful, warm and homely Haveli

We had a wonderful 2 night stay here! The owner Sanjay is an excellent host with nothing being too much trouble. The Haveli is a true oasis in a busy city and drinking tea in the hidden garden was a real delight. The room was excellent with well equipped bathroom. Some parts of the Haveli are being restored very sympathetically but there was no impact on our stay. Saba Haveli is a gem of a place. We ate in different areas of the hotel which was lovely, with tasty food and plenty of it. Thank you for a great stay!
Deceptive from the outside - delightful a little oasis

Large beautiful bedrooms -a feeling of splendour- roof terrace excellent for eating and having a drink - lovely large garden where you can have breakfast- the owner could not have been more helpful and kind and his staff were really great - we were sorry to move on -with our delicious packed lunch for our onward journey There was a mosque nearby so there was a call to prayer but to be honest we slept through it each morning- would go back

Saba Haveli is a old heritage hotel. It's an interesting building with very worn steps which could cause an accident. I nearly slipped once or twice. The rooms are large and furnished in tradiiional style but a lot of the furniture is just old, worn out stuff not genuine antiques like other heritage hotels. They don't match the photos on their website. I found the rooms dark and stuffy and some are very noisy. I was kept awake for one whole night by 2 dogs barking ( when I complained the owner did change my room for a quieter one). The hotel says it has 2 restaurants and it does but one is used only for large functions and the other is just an informal breakfast room with 3 tables. The food served was a set menu which didn't change and was very monotonous since I stayed there 8 nights. As a solo woman traveller I prefer not to be out after dark so couldn't go to any outside restaurants. The service was poor and seemed to be carried out by one man Rajendra who was very good at trying to do everything. There was a general lack of attention to detiails such as providing toiletries, It was very cold one night that I stayed there and I caught flu from a lack or blankets on the bed. I had only a sheet. Then a local friend provided a blanket for me and when they saw this the owner and his son quickly produced 2 blankets for me. I found this heritage hotel didn't merit the high price they charged for a room.
