Helena was a great host right from the moment we picked the place on Airbnb. We were in constant touch via emails and messages and Manu came and picked us up. They had left basic items like coffee, tea, bread, butter, honey and fruits in the room which was perfect for a snack when we arrived there after a long drive from Ahemdabad. Thanks to Helena and Manu for making us feel welcome with a personal touch!
Helena and Manu were wonderful hosts. They were helpful in many ways, including carrying bags up the stairs, providing filtered water, and providing some basic food supplies on our arrival. Beds were just OK but typical for India. The location, near the city palace, is good for exploring and GREAT for romantic views from one of the terraces. The fans and A/C worked well and we were comfortable. Recommended.
The best place to stay in Udaipur!!! I rearranged my trip to come back to this Haveli to finish off my trip here. This place is such a unique experience. Udaipur is amazing, the haveli is clean, comfortable, and minimalistic. The location is right by the city palace and save your shopping to do here. You can do shopping for your whole trip right at their doorstep. Helena and Manu are extremely helpful and have so much more to offer than a bed. You'll get access to the best services and experience staying here.
this haveli is a MUST stay!!! We could see the palace right from our kitchen window. It's extremely clean, super comfortable, and the hosts were amazing! We'll be staying here on our way back down through rajasthan, and changing plans to be able to stay here longer!!
What a wonderful place! The flat was just as expected from the profile and exactly what we needed. Room enough for a small family to rest up between outings to the lovely surrounding neighborhood, just a stone's throw from the City Palace and other innumerable delights. The hosts were beyond what one could hope for, showing great warmth and flexibility. The views from the terrace alone would make this a worthwhile place to stay, but mix that with the cozy and well-appointed rooms, the proximity to sights and scenes, and again the warmth and generosity of the hosts, and this haveli is a great find. I may be reluctant to share this, as it may then be booked when I hope to return, but I'll be recommending the Silver Moon Haveli to all my compatriots heading to lovely Udaipur.
As good as the photos show, with excellent hosts and a great discovery for a longer stay in Udaipur. I would stay again even for a short visit rather than a hotel. Very close to places to eat and sightsee. Helena and Manu can help with ideas too and organise things for you. There was plenty of space in our apartment to relax and if you like to cook there is a chapatti rolling pin and a pan! This was a little 'home of our own' in Udaipur. (And the massage was very good.)
La casa è davvero bella, in pieno centro, in una casa antica ma all'interno l'appartamento è moderno. Due camere matrimoniali, bagno con acqua calda, cucina e magnifici terrazzi.
Helena e suo marito Manu sono molto disponibili e davvero belle persone.
L'appartamento è silenzioso e in India è una vera rarità.

About the Host, Helena
I am originally from the Cotswolds in the UK and have lived in Udaipur for over thirteen years after initially travelling for six months around India. I married Manu in 2005 in typical Indian Rajput style and we have two children Tia and Solomon. Manu was born in Udaipur and designs and sells jewellery in our local shop Silver Moon. We continue to renovate our 300 year old haveli which we bought in 2002 and are very happy to welcome guests on both a short and long term basis to share the wonders of Udaipur.
