Excellent location right near the lake, good view of the Floating Palace from the rooftop restaurant. My girlfriend and I stayed in a clean, spacious and comfortable double room with attached bathroom (hot water) for 3 nights at a pretty reasonable price (I think it was Rs650). One of the staff, Poonam, was exceptionally friendly and helpful. He would help us out at any time and invite us for hookahs on the roof. The wifi was good but didn't reach up to the top 2 floors.

August 2012 I stayed for a couple of days at the Devi Vilas in Udaipur. It is beautifuly located close to the lake, and the view from the roof top is gorgeous. I had a nice room, clean and cosy. The two managers, Arvind and Djeevan, were very friendly and helpful whenever I needed something. They toke time to show me around Udaipur. I will definitely go back there during my next trip to India and can highly recommend the Devi Vilas!

I had a good experience staying @ Devi Vilas. Me and my 2 friends stayed there for 2 days, when we were on new year holidays. We stayed in super delux room and it was very spacious, clean and with very good ventilation. Also, our room had very good free wifi connectivity.

Best part is you can sit at the roof top and have a great view of the lake.

The manager there is very friendly and frank. He is very helpful too and even gave his spare tickets for the shilp gram mela. Anything we needed, he was ready to help at anytime, he will wake from his deep sleep to help you at anytime of the day/night.

It's location is very good. It is just next to the lake, all the other tourist places, local shops, market, resturants, german bakery etc.

Thank you for making our stay great and comfortable!

Room Tip: go for super delux. very spacious rooms.

For the price I have slept in more attractive rooms in India. Nothing wrong with my room or the hotel at all but offer and ambience do not surpass mediocricy which only justify 3 stars. (And by the way: the first room they put me in was pretty filthy - it looked like it hadn't seen a vacuum cleaner in the last month or so). Even in the better chambers there's some room for improvement concerning the cleanliness of the bath room and the WiFi coverage on the upper floors. However, I want to point out the friendliness of the staff and the nice chill-out feeling on the roof top where I spent two highly enjoyable evenings with a great view.
Also, to my surprise, the food that they serve up there was perfectly alright - I've eaten much worse at other guest houses.
Next time I'm in Udaipur I might try another hotel for sleeping but I'll be happy to drop by at Devi Vilas for a quiet evening of interesting conversations on the roof top.

The place was nice, well located near the Lake Pichola. It was a budget property, value for money. the staff was most helpful and guided us to all the great places and restaurants in Udaipur. it was within walking distance of the Jagdish Temple, City Palace, Bagore ki Haveli and a number of other places. The Deluxe room was adequate for a family of two adults and two children and we had adequate hot and cold water through the geyser. A nice place to stay on a budget. Had a wonderful german bakery Cafe Edelweiss just oppposite.
