We were fortunate enough to stay in a room with a lake view. The view and stained glass windows were stunning, but the hotel certainly had it's fair share of quirks... Pros: View - lake view rooms look over Lake Pichola, the water palace, and lake hotel Location - right in the center and in walking distance of shopping, restaurants,... More

If you are looking to unwind in Udaipur then this place was lovely. We were stopping over while waiting for a flight and were quite happy to lounge in our beautiful room, surrounded by comfy cushions and a lovely view and read. There was AC and fan to help keep us cool in the summer heat. Apart from that nothing... More

stayed here in January 2015. Well and truly over priced for it offers. No lifts and no safely barriers. Food choice is VERY limited and again over priced. Staff speak no English and the hotel does not accept Credit Cards. The owners are nosy and pry into your privacy. The hotel does not have a bar and no room service... More

We traveled there as a couple and first off must say that our stay was very enjoyable. They sent a cab 6 hours away to pick us up and deliver us to their hotel. The cost of travel by cab, everywhere in India, was/is cheap by American standards. The young man greeting us is the son of the owner. He... More

We looked around Udaipur and thought that this was the best value for money room. A well designed large room overlooking right on Lal Ghat and overlooking lake pichola. You could literally throw a fishing line into the lake from the an open large bay window. The air-conditioner worked well. Although when there were power failures there is no back... More

A great place to stay in Udaipur. We had a lovely room with a view over the lake. It was fantastic to sit and watch the sunset over the lake. The rooftop restaurant has the same great views, and very good breakfasts. The staff were all very friendly.

I LOVED staying at Kankarwa! We stayed in a lake view room, and it was heavenly. A great staff, very clean, BREATHTAKING views from our windows, great interiors, great breakfast, perfect location! They were very accommodating to our 5am check-out and even packed us a breakfast for the road. I would highly recommend staying at Kankarwa!

This is the place to stay in Udaipur. A 200 year old Haveli in the old town with fantastic views across the lake. Warm and friendly, they treat you like family. Every room is simply furnished with beautiful original antiques and textiles, and every room is different. There are exciting little hidden corners to sit and relax.

Amazing views here from the terrace of the lake. Great location for visiting sites and boat rides. The owner is friendly and helpful and even got in some scales to help us weigh our luggage ( internal airlines have very strict weight limits - over 15 kilos on checked in bags and you have to pay per kilo). We had... More

After the dust and bustle of Delhi, this was a serene and beautiful hideaway. We arrived here at daybreak after a very early flight from Delhi. Friendly staff welcomed us and we climbed to the top story to the breakfast terrace to take in the view as the sun rose over lake Pichola. What a picture! The room we stayed... More
