It is well placed, near Lake Pichola.Located very near to Jagdish Temple. Room is very spacious & beautifully decorated.But, according to its staff, it's a foreigner's hotel.so, when we checked in he didn't even provide us the basic need I.e. water. When we complained about the toilet, he told us that till now nobody had complained about anything and you... More

Thanx for review. Sorry for any inconveniences caused . The client was not comfortable with bathroom fittings and western commode. Some operational/ handling problems were there , while there was no defect in bathroom & it's fittings. Saying that its for foreigners hotel is not correct. All our guests are valuable and honourable. More

We booked two Maharani rooms for four of us who travelled to Udaipur. Location: It is right next to Lake Pichola which makes it ideal to explore most tourist spots in Udaipur. You get a partial lake view from the Maharani suite on the first floor. Rooms: The rooms were beautiful and you get exactly what you see in the... More

We enjoyed our stay at this very small hotel. The rooms are clean, well decorated and very clean. The manager is pleasant and ready to help. Wifi was recently installed in the rooms which is nice to have. The rooftop offers stunning views on the city. On the downside, the hotel is located right in the heart of the touristic... More

This is a lovely haveli, set within walking distance of several good restaurants (Charcoal and Rainbow Restaurant were our favourites) and with a great view of Lake Pichola. We opted for the king-sized balcony room which was well worth it; very spacious and clean. The manager of the haveli speaks good English and works tirelessly on his own as reception,... More

This place is the best for three reasons firstly the location is right in the heart where all the action happens in Udaipur, secondly the rooms are clean and spacious and ours even had a private balcony with astounding views of the lake Pichola. The position of the balcony also provides the perfect vista of the most astonishing sunset you... More

Let me be frank. If you are not staying with a lake view room in Udaipur, you are not in Udaipur. The beauty of the lake in Morning, night is worth the price you would pay for the lake view facing room. Coming to Raj Nivas, the hotel is very close to Lake Pichola; a strong rating that I would...

Read about this place on Trip Advisor and booked it for two nights. The rooms are big, clean with decent sized and clean toilet. The beds are very comfortable, lots of space in the room to move about. Not just a double bed and small corridor to mover around. The room was furnished with sitting area by the window, a... More

This tiny, very vertical hotel has only 1 good thing - the King Suite room (#3) on the top floor. It has a pretty sitting area and a huge terrace overlooking Pichola Lake. I would stay there again in a heartbeat! The hotel has no lounge or restaurant and while they do set up a little roof area for breakfast,... More

In past visits to Udaipur, one of our favourite cities, we have stayed at the the Lalit Laxmi Vilas Palace‎, the Lake Palace and several times at the Pichola, but for this trip we chose the Raj Nivas, a home stay close to Lake Pichola, near the City Palace. It was an excellent choice! It is a small five story... More

Great service by the hotel receptionist. He was very accommodating for a friend of mine in my last trip to Udaipur. Fantastic location, only seconds to the lake and the roof top café just across the road serves good pod coffee with fantastic views over the lake any time of the day.
