The Kankarwa Haveli is in a great location for exploring beautiful Udaipur, and the view from the bay window was magic. The staff were attentive, the air-con worked beautifully (it was about 45 on the days we were there!) breakfast on the roof was pleasant and the ensuite was perfect....but not having a small fridge tucked somewhere in the room...

The location was close to every thing. I was able to walk out of the door and straight into the streets/shops a ndnot far from the city palace. As a solo traveler I really appreciated the comfort and sense of security at this hotel. The roof top restaurant has an amazing view of the lake. My room was on the... More

This place could be very nice. It is not. Like many hotels in Udaipur, this property was converted to a hotel. Ordinarily, I like that. However, this was poorly done. In our room, which had a nice lake view, the room originally had some beautiful woodwork. In renovating, they decided to paint over the wood. Not a great choice, but... More

Our three nights here were wonderful. We stayed in several 5 star properties during our two week holiday but this proved one of our favourites and offers a truly memorable experience. The location is superb and offers fantastic views and the roof top terrace a great place to relax and to have breakfast or lunch. Our room was comfortable and... More

I now live in India but visited the country 20 times before moving here. I have visited Udaipur on numerous occasions over the past 15 years and I have always stayed at the Kankarwa. I first found it via a rough guide and loved its old world charm. However, the welcome I always receive from the owner and his family,... More

This is a gorgeous Havali - really cute quirky decor in a great location. Really close to the palace but best of all right on the lake, with a great view. We had the room on the very top terrace and the view was amazing! We had Thali here for dinner which was excellent, and breakfast also which was also... More

We stayed here for a night and I have mixed views about this property. It's a lovely place, rustic and old world, always bustling with the guests sitting in the library or sipping tea or just playing with the lovely Bambi! But if you're travelling with family that had kids, then this place is not ideal for you. Firstly there... More

One of the charms of staying in Udaipur is staying in one of the reconverted old buildings in the old town. There seems to be two types: large houses/villas (called "Haveli") and palaces (called, well..., "Palace"). In the "palace" one would expect 5 star accommodation. The Havelis are (just) below that. Having said that, we loved staying in the KANKARWA... More

We had a big room with a small separate sitting room with view of the lake. The rooftop terrace allows you to see the Lake Palace and other impressive buildings at sunrise and sunset. The hotel is comfortable, the staff are pleasant and helpfull. From the Haveli you can make easy walks to various other hotels, haveli's restaurants, temples.
