We wanted to stay in a lake view room but on a budget....This place did not sound even half as good as the view it offered....our room was right on the lake with views of the lake from two sides of the room...it had a small sit out balcony where we enjoyed plenty cups of tea in the chilly breeze...

Stayed in Old Jheel Guest House was pleasant experience. Although my room is located on the 3rd floor, to reach the 3rd floor you need to climb narrow and high stair. The room was great with mural paintings, hot water is a plus. Great windows overlooking the lake, especially when it is sunset. Walking distance to City Palace, and ghats.

We stayed here for a fortnight during our time in Udaipur. There are so many positives about this place. Friendly staff, great location with a balcony that overlooked the Lake Palace, and only a short walk from the City Palace and city centre. A friendly manager and helpful manager. Beds were nice and clean and staff were always keen to... More

Few rooms have a nice view on the Pichola lake.Our room was small but cosy, We really enjoyed its indian style and small balcony .Very well for 2/3 nights. Early in the morning ,you’ll be awake by women washing their clothes by the lake but it’s routine for these indian women.

We are here on two separate occasions. The first time I had coffee (which was lovely) and porridge. The porridge arrived and it was so watery and couldn't be called porridge really. To his credit the manager immediately took to rectifying it when I notified him, although it still wasn't quite up to my standard. I find that to find... More

We didnt stay here but its my 2nd time in Udaipur and I visited the rooftop cafe again. I remembered the egg curry from my first visit and ordered it again. It was delicious as ever, so much that I ordered one extra rice just to finish the curry, although i was full. Great view of the lake from the... More

We did not stay here, but enjoyed probably the best Indian meal of our three-week trip at the roof top restaurant. An amazing view - which one can really enjoy as to food is truly freshly prepared - this is not a fast-food place, despite the fact that they have few tables that would generally cause other similar restaurants to...

Rooms and restaurant have an absolutely amazing view on the lake - it is one the main reasons to go to that guesthouse. Rooms are spacious, nicely decorated, clean. the rooftop restaurant has a very nice breakfast and also a stunning view. Staff is not always there but very nice. Nevertheless, bathrooms are quite basic and hot water does not... More

Well located, nice rooms, fantastic food in the rooftop restaurant and the best view in town. We were in Jheels Old Guesthouse and it is still in good nick and only a short walk across the road to the new guesthouse and restaurant.
