Ehi-Passika "come and experience" Buddha used to use this phrase when explorers used to ask about the beauty of his teaching. We are using this to welcome you all to come and experience our humble hospitality. Chandra Niwas is a simple homestay accommodation with basic rooms and bathroom fittings. It is our house which has been converted into a homestay for those who are interested in staying in the non touristy area. Most of all it is a place for socially responsible travelers and for those who are interested in getting to know our rural education initiatives. Located in a peaceful non-touristy neighborhood, Chandra Niwas provides guests with a unique opportunity to experience real Indian life and culture. This is not your average impersonal, commercial hotel in the middle of the touristy area. This is a Homestay into which you will be warmly welcomed and given personal attention to ensure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. We welcome those guests with an interest in exploring the local community and a desire to escape the hassles and touts that plague touristy areas. Part of the revenue generated from the Homestay is invested in a grassroots non-profit organization, providing education to rural youth. In all our rooms you will find wall-hangings and bed covers made by local village artists. We have many other local arts and crafts on display in the communal area, which guests may purchase if they wish. In addition, all of our staff are employed from local villages and trained for future employment in the hospitality industry. Most rooms have WiFi, and all rooms have en-suite bathrooms with 24 hours hot water. Breakfast is served in a lovely dining area where free internet access and WiFi is available. You may also eat on the roof-top, overlooking the organic vegetable garden, and home-cooked lunches and dinners are available upon request. We also have a small library created by past travelers, including travel books, novels, and DVDs. Your hosts, Dr. Samvit Audichya and his hospitable family will personally assist you in planning your days in Udaipur, depending on your interests and length of stay. The hosts will also gladly take care of your transport needs and help you with onward travel arrangements (all at no extra cost). We genuinely enjoy helping our guests! We are a ten minute drive from the city center (4 kms) and walking distance to many stores, restaurants and a pharmacy.During your stay at Chandra Niwas you will have the opportunity to see Udaipur not just through the eyes of a tourist, but through the eyes of a local. Chandra Niwas Homestay is best suited for mid budget travelers who wish to stay away from the touristy old town and wishes to experience the true Indian Home experience. Dr. Audichya has been connected with travel, hospitality, business and social work for the last six years and is now connecting them both. Chandra Niwas welcomes the guests to visit our village development projects.

This homestay was such an incredible surprise!!! We just needed a place to stay in the area and came across Samvit's homestay – it was budget friendly, so we decided to book. But it is just incredible value for money. We think that Samvit's homestay is the best homestay in Udaipur. It represents the ethnic core of the culture of Rajasthan: very beautiful, warm, colorful and ethnic interiors, with amazing artwork. It has all the amenities one could need, and warm and welcoming hosts! They were kind enough to let us keep the luggage at their place since they had no booking, and to pick us up from the airport. Once settled in, we were served with delicious breakfast. Next morning, we had a great conversation with Samvit and his father and got to know their experiences of hosting a variety of guests. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, away from the hustle of the city, yet close to it! Tourist attractions like Fathehsagar lake and Saheliyon Ki Bari are closest from the location. We enjoyed it more than a 4* hotel we stayed at, in Udaipur, which was much more expensive. The whole experience was memorable for all of us. Highly recommended to book a stay here at least once. Looking forward to visit again!!

I don't know where to begin while describing this gem of a place called Chandra Niwas. Let's start with the host, Samvit. He is a great human being and a true professional who always has a smile on his face. He is an amazing personality and we had ton of interesting conversations spanning across different topics. He is well read and absolutely fun to hang out with. These guys also offer a trekking and cycling experience at a very reasonable price. We availed those during our stay and ended up going on a couple of nearby treks and one cycling trip exploring the neighborhoods nearby. Both of these experiences included Samvit (who is an avid trekker and cyclist) arranging everything that we would need and he was also the lead guide in both of those experiences. Location wise, this place is very close to all the touristy spots that you would want to check off your list. The food cooked by Motilal bhai was lip smacking delicious. Very authentic and fulfilling. We met a bunch of fellow guests who were from all across the country. Had a great time chatting with them during dinner. Last but not the least if you're a dog person you're in for a treat. There are three Saint Bernards who will absolutely melt your heart.

This place is beyond amazing. The owner is friendly, cooperative and understanding, a very rare combination to find these days. Not only does the ambience match the lush designs of Udaipur culture, but also the warmth and grace of what feels exactly like home. 10/10 recommend.

Samvit is a very good host. Very friendly with lot of life experience. The dogs are the best part. Meeting roza was the best part of the day. Samvit greets his guests like family. Chandra niwas is the best budget stay you can find.
