If you can find another place, you probably should. The pillow on the bed was so stained it showed through the paper thin pillow case. Woke up with bites on my face and neck. Found "hairs" on the low slung mattresses by the windows. Soap in shower is what you find in a juvenile detention facility. Toilet tissue was never... More

If you are looking for western hotel conveniences, this is not the place for you. However if you are open to something different, this quirky haveli could be the ticket. View of the lake is just magnificent. We enjoyed our stay there quite q bit. One thing though, there is no elevator. So if you have any physical issues, climbing... More

What more can you say - sunset over the iconic lake palace in an historic hotel owned by descendants of the great Maharanas of Udaipur? Only the dull of soul could not be moved by a stay here. Not expensive!

While the location and appearance of this hotel is excellent, I was surprised at the mediocre service. The breakfast was poor, grumpily served, and generally unpleasant -- under-cooked eggs, cold toast, and definitely the worst coffee I had in India. We switched to tea, but that was just as tasteless and watery. When we checked in, our room hadn't been... More

When I got there I did not know what to expect. And Im glad I didnt have any expectations. The hotel is so charming and rustic. Dont expect 5 star... it isnt. For that you can go next door. But this place has such a charm. Our rooms were right on the waterfront and my window opened onto the water... More

The property is beautiful, the rooms are tasteful, and the location is one of the best. Breakfast is decent and the staff friendly. Wifi is only available in the common area. The rooms that look out over the lake have jaw dropping views.

This place is beautiful. Everything in our room was handmade, beautiful rooftop terrace for eating breakfast. Friendly and small place. We enjoyed our stay here. The only thing is the place didn't have great hot water- maybe I was doing something wrong though- it's very possible!

Everything at this hotel breathes mediocre. Built as an 18th Century mansion, the stairs can exhaust you before you reach your upstairs room or the rooftop breakfast area. The breakfast is skimpy and grumpily served. No refills on the tea without paying extra. We had two different rooms, but each location had only disappointing, peek-a-boo views of Lake Pichola. We...

This place was a lovely end to our stay. The view on the roof terrace was excellent and a very homely place that was in walking distance of a lot of the sights. Place next door is really good for drinks too.

i cannot tell how much i love this place, but i do love it it seemed like heaven to me, especially after a ten-days' stay in Rishikesh.....haha~, i'm not saying Rishikesh is hell but here it was obviously much cleaner. i felt i was back to modern reality.
