“Road trip”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

Good clean room, nice service and most importantly a place to part the car. If you are looking for a city view outside your window, I would not recommend it but for all else it works!

The hotel is 5 mins from the city palace and shopping street.... We loved our evening walk back from jaiwana haveli where we had dinner one night

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

We stayed for 3 nights in room 215 from 25th to 28th dec. it costed us around 15k, however the room that we got on the name of heritage property can be compared to the matchbox. Not enough place to keep stuff or move around. Have attached pictures for reference. So small that the wardrobe has been placed in the bathroom. Also, we are Indians and we use water in the toilet, at least deserve to get a hand shower instead of the mug and tap arrangement for the price paid.

Room 215 is also near the bar and its difficult to get sleep with people chitchatting and walking by the alley till late night hours.

Lets come to the food. The breakfast was basic and not worth the price. The staff needs to be educated better. We had ordered 2cups of tea in room service and they not only sent 2 pots but also charged us for it. When we explained , they apologised and said your next tea order will be free. Later, they conveniently forgot the same and charged us. Their much talked about thali restaurant serves Jain food and you would'nt like it unless you like having a whole lot of tomatoes in your bland food.

Also, the reception staff was not helpful, we had enquired about day trips to chittorgarh and cab services where first they took time to find out and revert and later asked us to go out and check with the cabbies ourself. Car museum has just about 10 odd cars, no great shakes.

Only positive is the location, all tourist spots are nearby.

Not that most Udaipur heritage hotels are known for their value for money but this one takes the cake by charging 4 star rates for 2 star rooms. The property itself is great and well mantained and so are the rooms. However, the amenities provided and the food at offer are a big let down compared to the money shelled out.
We ended up staying here when other hotels were sold out and shelled out arnd 6k per room.

Pros:
Beautiful heritage property , however the vintage cars are a sham.
Rooms are spacious and nicely maintained. Service is decent.

Cons:
Rooms are badly equipped for the price.
Food does not match the standards of the property.

It was my third stay at this exceptional palace!! the staff their is extremely prompt , courteous & always ready to help, thanks to Mr. Narayan Singh & his staff!!
The closeness of the property with the famous Pichola lake , the city palace complex & the Gulab bagh makes it very nicely located.
The experience of having the morning break fast in the garden is very pleasant.
We look forward to always stay here while at Udaipur!!

Room Tip: prefer the the ground floor garden facing rooms!

We stayed there for 3 nights. Hotel rooms are very clean, staff is friendly and service is very prompt. My kids (3yr and 5yr) loved the car collection and Gujrati Thali meal. Though I feel they can have much more on menu for their Open garden restaurant.

A Royal experience among the vintage cars! Nice & comfortable stay. Though rooms are not very big, still clean and beautifully decorated. The bedding is comfortable and bathrooms are huge with good quality toiletries. True Value for Money. I visited this hotel with my parents & whole family. Icing on cake was His Highness Sriji’s visit and dinner there, with live classical music & gazals.

Room Tip: Avoid inner rooms which were little noisy due to staff movements.
