We had a wonderfully stay here for three nights. Very small and personal, incredible lake view from maharaja suite. We never wanted to leave our room! Our host was so sweet, super helpful and our room was spotlessly clean! Highly recommend!

I stayed there two nights in January 2013 - one night at Maharani Suite, one night at Maharaja Suite. Everything was perfect. The room was beautiful and clean and the caretaker/manager Jassu was extremely friendly and made me feel home away from home. I can highly recommend this place and will definitely stay there again.

The view from the Maharaja suite is absolutely brilliant. The rooms are nice, clean and airy and close to all the good restaurants and tourist sites. On the bad side, the neighbors are a tad noisy especially in the morning.
Jassu, the caretaker, is the best! He took care of all our needs and was kind enough to arrange for transportation etc when ever we required. I have no idea how he manages the place so well even though he is the only staff at the hotel and its always full! He is such a nice chap that he even got us home made pickle as gift on our last day :)
DO stay here for the good rooms, great view and fabulous service - courtesy the one man army : Jassu!

Three rooms, one above the other, with a roof terrace where you eat breakfast, overlooking the wonderful lake. The rooms are big and airy, with a comfortable bed and interesting local furniture. A bit noisy outside early morning, but you won't avoid that in Udaipur. Ably run by one young chap, who was cook, receptionist, cleaner and fixer.Excellent value for money and I'd go back there every time. Right by the lake and a short walk from the best restaurant in town on the roof of a rambling hotel.

This small hotel had beautifully furnished and maintained rooms, with an extraordinary view of the lake and its sunsets. We spent five nights in the Maharajah Suite, which gave us a large balcony, which we enjoyed immeasurably. The caretaker, Jassu, provided the best service we ever have received at a hotel, including those costing six times a much. He understood our needs, in terms of food, arrangements, and local travel, and he met every need with warmth, exceptional competence, and pride in the hotel for which he worked. The locale is ideal; the rooms are magnificent; the service is perfect. The best!

Room Tip: The Maharajah Suite is something quite special (3rd floor), and the photos on the hotel's websit...

We booked the Maharaja Suite after doing lot of research on TripAdvisor, and we surely are happy with the results.

The suite is three floors above ground level, and there is no elevator. Thus one needs to climb up the steps to the suite. But once inside, one would surely forget any inconvenience caused due to the lack of the elevator. The room is exquisitely designed and furnished with a big king size bed, two easy chairs, a center table, a small refrigerator, a small tv, and a sitting arrangement against the Jharoka. But the icing on this cake is the private balcony overlooking the Pichola lake. One can sit there and spend hours lazing around, with a nice view of the lake palace. I felt that it is one of the best place to stay at Lal Ghat at that cost.

While Maharaja suite allows you lake view even from the bed and the sofas apart from the private balcony, the other two rooms does not have lake view, but the are still very good rooms with nice decorations. Overall, this place is very clean.

The Lal Ghat boating counter is just next to this place, so one does not need to go far for boating. Take the sunset boating trip, which starts around 5:15 in the evening - at the same cost one can have a longer duration for this trip.

City Palace, another prime attraction, is also within walking distance, so is the Bagore Ki Haveli. Both these places have evening shows, and thus good to stay near these.

The all in one person, Jaswant aka Jassu, does everything to take care of the guests. He would take care of moving the luggage, do the cleaning, help you out with directions, serve the breakfast, and manage the bills. The breakfast we had was simple - bread, butter, jam, eggs, fruits, fruit juices, tea and coffee. We were happy with the same, though Jassu had told us that he can also arrange for parathas, and other things with a serving time of about 30 minutes. He is a wonderful helpful guy.

Apart from breakfast, this place does not serve you anything, but there are restaurants nearby - Rainbow restaurant is just adjacent. Thus, one should not have any problem with the food.

I had also visited Hanuman Ghat on the other side of Lake Pichola, but I found the Lal Ghat near Raj Niwas much cleaner. Thus, while there are hotels in Hanuman Ghat too with lake views, but I believe that I made a good decision in staying where I did.

Room Tip: Take the Maharaja Suite, book early for the same.

We stayed here in the last week of Decemeber and it was just perfect. The place was right on lal ghat and had beautiful views of lake pichola. The rooms were spacious and bathrooms were exceptionally good. We stayed in the Maharani suite but wd definitely recommend the maharaja suite as it has a terrace with stunning views. The maharani suite does not have the view of the lake. The place is very well kept and clean. The care taker Jassu- cook, porter, cleaner all rolled into one was very helpful and also arranged for our dinner reservations. All in all a lovely stay and wd definitely come back again!

Room Tip: Go for the Maharaja Suite for stunning views of the lake.
