The good news first...the location of the hotel is brilliant and specially if you are stying at the third floor which has a balcony then you will get the vantage point of the Lake Palace hotel, Lake Pichola and the tiny hills behind the lake. If you are fond of Silver Jewellery then the shop below the hotel will mesmerise... More

This is a very clean hotel which is excellent value. The manager was very helpful and attentive to our needs I would definitely stay here again. The hotel is close to all the major rights and is spacious and clean.

Great renovation and decoration, excellent location, amazing and romantic sunset over the lake Pichola. Udaipur is a nice city, great spot for honeymoon. Visiting the palaces is really a nice activity.

It would be wrong to suggest this place would operate like a normal hotel. Look past the lack of mini bar, bottled water, room service and see... More

Raj Niwas only has 3 rooms so as other reviewers have noted, this is really more a guest house than hotel so travelers should come with this expectation. That being said, Raj Niwas has clean, spacious, comfortable rooms with a convenient location right near Lake Pichola but on a 'quieter' alley. All of old Udaipur is within easy walking distance....

The top floor might be worth 5000 rupees per night but the lower floors are not worth 4000. There are a number of good points: The position is great, A lot of effort has gone into renovating and decorating the rooms and ours on the second floor was a delight to occupy, Jassu, the manager and sole staff member, works...
