This guesthouse is amazing. Akshay and his beautiful family welcome you with open arms. Firstly a review on the actual facitlites... The rooms are absolutely beautiful, and extremely comfortable. It was like a home away from home. Beautifully decorated, hot showers, air conditioning and comfortable beds. The little touches like biscuits and lollies in jars in your room were just... More

We really enjoyed our stay here with Akshay and family. The home is beautiful and he takes so much pride in showcasing the works of local artisans in the room. He's constantly trying to improve which is impressive since he already sets a high bar. Nothing is too much to ask. We needed earphones for an iPhone at 9pm and... More

My wife and I are still baffled why every room at Little Garden Guest House was not booked. I'm sure this won't be the case the next time we return to India. Akshay and his family are just perfect and so warm and inviting. The rooms are charming. The food delicious. This is your spot in Udaipur! Look no further.... More

Little Garden Guest House is very conveniently located in the City Palace area, literally 5-10 minutes walk to the entrance to the city palace and another few minutes to the Gangaur Ghat. The cable car is only a short autorickshaw ride away, but can be reached on foot as well. Despite being in the centre of the action - the... More

When we arrived at Little Garden Guest House we were given a very warm and enthusiastic welcome by Akshay. Akshay was clearly very proud of his little guest house and for good reason.

I don't know where to start with my praise for the Little Garden guesthouse and I have traveled a lot and stayed in a range of places (hundreds) from five star plus palaces to backpackers' dorm rooms; The Little Garden Guest House is certainly at the front of the pack!

Akshay and his family are wonderful hosts. I arrived early in the morning but was greeted with Masala tea and breakfast. The rooms are impeccably decorated in traditional Rajasthan style with the most modern facilities. I didn't appreciate the comfort of the bed or the western style bathroom until I traveled further into India. And you can see the Udaipur... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Little Garden Guesthouse is nestled at the base of Udaipur's renowned City Palace in the heart of the Old City.Each room is individually fitted out with tasteful and eclectic furniture and fittings,most of which are family heirlooms. Fair-trade women's cooperative handcrafted bed covers,cushions and curtains complement the decor.The street in which the 250 year old heritage house or haveli is located, Kavi Rao Mohan Singh, is named after an ancestor of the family and is a comfortable sanctuary just off Bhattiyani Chouhtta, a fascinating market street lined with handicrafts stalls. We invite you to nest and rest in one of our two spacious bedrooms (11x17ft). You can curl up reading in cushioned bay-windows or sprawl out for a siesta on firm double beds with freshly laundered linen. Each room is decorated with eclectic handicrafts, antiques and textiles. Little Garden is newly renovated, so our bathroom facilities are clean and reliable. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with western toilet and a running hot shower available 24 hours a day. We will happily provide clean towels and new bed linen at your request. In addition to our simple but charming heritage rooms, Little Garden has two spacious terraces from which panoramic views of the City Palace and verdant Aravali Hills can be taken in. It is a perfect place to experience the nightly sound and light show which sets the Palace ablaze, watch the buzzing rooftop life of the Old City, or rest-up with a book, drink or meal happily provided by your hosts (upon request). Of course, our little garden courtyard is also a lovely shady place to pass time. The traditional layout of our home (several rooms arranged around open courtyards) is perfect for the independently minded traveller who also wants to experience the life and hospitality of a local family. You may come and go from our rooms as you please as they each have a private entrance from the little garden courtyard. As our family are descendants of a renowned poet who served in the royal court of Mewar and shared a close relationship with the then King (Maharana), our home was gifted to our ancestor by the royal family. It is thus located very centrally, just 5 minutes walk to the palace and other heritage highlights of Udaipur, such as: Jagdish Temple- Built from marble in C17th and dedicated to 'Jagdish' or Vishnu (Lord and protector of the universe), this is Udaipur's most notable and beautiful Hindu temple. Gangaur Ghat - A complex of Shiva temples perched on the bank of Pichola Lake where the annual Gangaur festival unique to Rajasthan is commemorated. Also a wonderful spot to observe the rituals of daily life, the gorgeous Lake Palace and Jag Mandir island. Ayurvedic Hospital- Provides free consultations, daily yoga classes and mud therapy.Rose Garden- The favoured place for locals to picnic and exercise. Many handicrafts, vegetable and spice markets. Who we are: Hi there, my name is Akshay. My parents Gajendra and Vimla, my younger sister Tina and I would like to invite you to share in the joy of our local culture, architecture and landscape from a unique vantage point- our family home! I recently established 'Little Garden Guesthouse' to provide an income for my retired Mum and Dad, assist in maintaining our heritage property, and to entertain my love of imparting local knowledge! I have 6 years experience assisting travellers seeking out the best of Udaipur. Whilst you stay with us I will be available to ensure that your room is comfortable and your city wanderings rewarding! I look forward to your expressions of interest. Thank you :) ... more   less
