“Amazing lakeside hotel, great fun at Holi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Udaipur is a beautiful place, and this hotel with its lakeside setting must be one of the nicest ways to experience the place. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff are the most friendly we encountered anywhere in India. We were there for Holi and this made our stay extra special, as the staff had the day off to enjoy the celebrations and the fun was infectious, they enticed myself and my husband out and we got well and truly covered in paint to their great amusement. the rooftop restaurant has to have one of the most magical settings in India, and we ate there every evening because of that; we found the food to be very good, especially the breakfasts. Free WiFi is available in the lobby, and the hotel is right in the old town so is convenient for all the sights. Don't stay anywhere else!!

Room Tip: The lakeside rooms are worth paying extra for.

Overall our stay at Jagat Niwas was excellent. We had 2 nights in a lake view room (before moving to our 'treat night' at the Lake Palace).

The staff are friendly and very helpful, the layout of the hotel (open walkways around courtyards) was cool and very attractive - plants and murals everywhere. The food was nothing special, but eating on the roof top in the cool evening breeze watching the lights play on the water of the lake was. The only downside was the lack of pool (but I don't think many hotels in Udaipur have one) for my daughter to amuse herself in when it hit 44C (110F) and it was too hot to do anything else.

The location couldn't be better and I'd certainly come again.

Even though me & my sister were booked into one of the lower end rooms (we were on a budget) we had a great time at this hotel. The staff were lovely & very helpful. Our room was a little noisy from the outside traffic & security night staff chatting until late at the bottom of the stairs but that's probably because we were in a cheaper room at the back. One of the best things about this hotel is its location right on the lake with superb views from the roof terrace & the restaurant, It would be perfect for a romantic vacation. It is also minutes walk from the shops, the ghats the palace & temple. Virtually next door to the Bagore-Ki-Haveli which has nightly traditional dance & music shows, One of the stops for the lake cruises is also 2 minutes walk from the hotel. Good breakfast & excellent restaurant. Highly recommended

Room Tip: if possible pay for a higher grade room to avoid the early morning & late night noises

Good clean central hotel with helpful staff and an easy to walk to most places, but cars / taxi's cannot get to the last 200 yds. Rooftop restaurant gives good views of the lake and palaces.
with the number of steps up to the restaurant and the short walk to a taxi it is probably not a good hotel for anyone with walking problems.

This is an amazing havella situated right on the lake.. We enjoyed every minute of our stay here and the food is out of this world. Highly recommended.We walked every night around the old city as it is in the heart of everything. We will return.

We reached this hotel in a tuk-tuk, with our luggage following in a second tuk-tuk, and were grateful that the friendly staff carried our bags up the 51 steps to our room. We had a room at the very top, on its own, with a fantastic, uninterrupted view of the lake and easy access to the restaurant and breakfast tables. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and a clean, large, bathroom and a table and chairs outside. The air conditioning worked really well!

The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. They liked that we were supporting India against Australia in the cricket!

It was a bit odd when pop/rock music started blaring out from another hotel across the water on our first evening and we had to retreat to our room to get away from the noise, but that's not the fault of Jagat Niwas.

I don't think this hotel would be particularly suitable for people with mobility problems unless they can guarantee to get one of the ground floor rooms, and whilst some people might enjoy running the gauntlet of the various shop owners on the only way into the hotel, we did get a bit fed up with this. Having said this, we enjoyed our stay a great deal.
