“Homely and welcoming, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I really enjoyed my stay here. My room was clean and nice, tastefully decorated with a decent modern bathroom and plentiful hot water. The ground floor has an art studio, and the hotel owner will happily show you around. Great views of the palace from the rooftop, and a 2min walk from the hotel into the middle of the tourist area and palace entrance. Well worth staying here.

Stayed April 2013, traveled solo

Sanju and his lovely family provide very clean, comfortable and spacious rooms which are very affordable. They were all so helpful, friendly and accommodating to all our requests. The rooftop has an amazing view of the Jagdish Temple and the City Palace(which are both only a 2 min walk away). At night it was very relaxing and romantic to sit and enjoy a beer or some chai for breakfast. I would also recommend the cooking class by the wonderful Babu! I will always stay here when I come back to Udaipur. Overall it was a wonderful experience!

The Janak guest house has all one would want when visiting this lovely city. I would recommend this guest house to any traveler to Udaipur, and I will definitely be staying here during my next visit to India. The rooms are large, cool throughout the day, extremely clean, new and comfortable. Some of my best sleeps in India were here. The roof top has perfect views of the city palace and delicious food. The brothers are always accommodating, friendly and very helpful with all our needs. The location is just a 2 minute walk to the city palace and the city center.

Owners (3 brothers) are super helpful, place is clean, combination art studio and affordable rooms.Lovely to interact with people who really care about your experience. Highly recommend (and make sure you have coffee on the roof overlooking the Jagdish Temple).
