“Very Pretty & Nice Quiet Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This was one of my favorite hotels likely because I loved loved loved Udaipur the most (although my foot was run over by a truck). The hotel is a bit off the main street which is great and means its quiet and there are less cars to run you over. I had room #10 (I think) the first two nights. It was so so. Bathroom smelled but it was a very unique layout with the mattress on the floor. I don't think it is a great room because they called me and offered to put me in another room partly through my stay and the room they moved me to was amazing. It was in the wing of the building (I'm guessing newer) versus #10 being in the main building. In any event I liked the hotel very much. The roof top is amazing. Breakfast ok but the breakfast room a tad crowded sometimes. Who cares though about that....it was a great hotel and I would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Go for the separate single floor wing of the hotel versus the main building.

I stayed here recently with my wife and two daughters. The Udai Kothi is in a terrific location on the Hanuman Ghat area--the old city section of Udaipur surrounds it, and it's wonderful to walk in the area around the hotel. The hotel itself has a lot of charm--it has beautiful furnishings in the halls and the rooftop pool is magnificent. Our experience was dampened because the staff could not find my reservation (we had made it more than 24 hours before on a major booking website), and it took a long time to sort out. Also, our room was not as described on the website--an old cathode-ray TV instead of a promised LCD, and two spartan single beds instead of a king and a single that we had booked. Although the rooms were clean and the A/C nice and cold, they were really just average. Still, if location is key to your stay, you could do worse than this place. It's a solid three-star hotel.

This palace hotel is stunning outside and in, I loved the pictures and memorabilia of the maharajas family displayed in the hallways. We were met in the reception area with a drink and garland, showed to a lovely room on the 3rd floor. Beautifully decorated, it held a 4 poster bed, and seating area with cushions on the floor, the room was air conditioned and comfortable. The rooftop pool is cool, refreshing and very clean considering the number of pigeons that come to drink from it, the surrounding seating area is lovely and relaxing. The Indian food in the restaurant was very good although we found both the outdoor restaurant and the breakfast room much too crowded. There is not enough room in either place for adequate seating. The location of the hotel is excellent, the little alley ways around the hotel are great for exploring and shopping. It is only minutes from the palace gates once you know how to get there. Enjoyed this hotel.

We spent two nights at Udai Kothi beginning of April and wished we could have stayed another day. We had a lovely room on the ground floor overlooking the garden, beautifully decorated in traditional style with an amazingly huge bathroom - the marble bath was certainly not for one person!! good shower too. It was very hot during our visit and the pool was a great place to cool off and relax. Our evening meal in the restaurant was authentic Indian food which we enjoyed. The hotel is well located for walking and exploring in the little lanes, with shops and other eateries nearby. As a matter of interest, we did a cooking course at Shashi's across the river and it was certainly a highlight of our trip - traditional food and a scrumptious meal to enjoy!

I visited Udaipur during the Mewar Festival with four of my friends, after checking out a few hotels we stumbled upon Udai Kothi. I must say it is one of the best hotels that will fit into your budget. Great service, lovely view and a swimming pool to die for. Though the hotel is compact yet it caterers to every need of its guests. Food is decent. Standard rooms are good. Hotel staff is cooperative.

If you are going with a group of friends, make sure you spend some time on the terrace at night. A great location for an evening dinner if you are travelling with your loved one.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are comfortable, before you go for a deluxe room do check out the standard rooms and...

This hotel was just the best in Udaipur!! We were greeted with a nice cooling drink and a garland.

Julie and I met the lovely and enchanting lady owner. We felt very privileged to have the use of the Udai Suite, with it's own jacuzzi, indoor pool, and beautiful rooftop.

The restaurant food and service was unsurpassed. This would have to be the best location for a restaurant in Udaipur; overlooking the beautiful lake.

Udai Kothi is remarkable for it's tranquility and magnificence. Excellent amenities, exceptional service and all beautifully presented.

Thank you for making our holiday memorable.

Alan and Julie
