“Beautiful accommodation with lake views”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

My wife and I stayed at Raj Niwas for 3 days in January and thoroughly enjoyed our experiences. The hotel is small (3 rooms) and beautifully furnished. It us at the end of a cul de sac very close to the lakeshore. The view from the roof top terrace and breakfast area over the lake and the Lake Palace and towards the City Palace is breathtaking. Jassu is a great host and ensures that everything runs smoothly. In our case he went to great lengths to ensure our stay was a memorable one. Many sights and places of interest were within walking distance making Raj Niwas a great place to stay in Udaipur.

Room Tip: All three rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished.

Raj niwas is such a great place to stay. i had a wonderful time with my family. the view is amazing from the maharaja suite and jassu is very helpful. Also the shop keeper krishna just opposite to the hotel is very helpful and he has amazing textiles in his shop. just beware of the street boys and commission agents who tell u stupid stories that they are going to your country in next four days for some art and cultural exchanges. they just want to sell you stuff. avoid talking to them. everything else was great.

Room Tip: the top maharaja suite

We had a lovely time at Raj Niwas..perfect place to stay in Udaipur! It was an absolute pleasant experience for our family and I would highly recommend this hotel. This is a perfect place for family time: peace of mind, tranquil & relaxation was at its best.
This hotel offers clean rooms with beautiful lake view and lovely ambience. The person I charge Jassu and the property owner Mr. Jhalla, were very helpful and made our stay memorable.

Awesome memories

This is such an oasis in the amazing city of Udaipur!
Jassu, the manager is so friendly and super helpful and kind. Nothing was too hard for Jassu he was always available to help. Our room was so gorgeous, we loved the finishings and decor. And the rooftop had the best view! The area is beautiful and there are lors of great rooftop cafes and bars. We'd highly recommend Raj Niwas to anyone! Thanks for a great stay.... Sarah and Gen

The King Suite has an excellent balcony view of the Pichhola Lake. The Suite is huge and is worth the amount paid for booking the suite. The Interiors are well designed and as mentioned earlier the icing on the cake is the balcony view. The Taj and Palace view from the balcony in evening time is worth the watch. There is only one caretaker for the property and hence don't expect to have a service fit for the king. There is no breakfast spread and you will have to live by what you get. Dinner / Lunch is to be taken outside the hotel.

Room Tip: Choose this hotel (Suite Room) if you want to spend a whole day in hotel being lazy and don't mi...

We stayed at Raj Niwas for 3 nights. Beautiful rooms great view from rooftop, good location, the manager Jassu was really friendly and did everything manager cook cleaner advisor. Only the top room had a balcony rm 301 I believe, the others had marginal views but were very good.I'd definitely stay again, only 3 rooms to the hotel, I really enjoyed Udaipur

Just three rooms, one on top of the other. The uppermost ( Maharaja ) with a
balcony from which one sees a part of the lake. Rooms very big, spotlessly
clean, well appointed. An old style ( haveli ) building.
The whole show is run by just one young man ( not the owner ) : receptionist,
PR, cleaning, cooking breakfast ( on the terrace ), room service, et.al.
There is no dining room, but if you want to eat on the terrace, or in the room,
just tell him what you want to eat, and he´ll bring it from some nearby restaurant.
Want to eat out ?. He will tell you where, and even accompany you part of the
way himself.
Flies in the ointment ?. Just three small ones :
Rooms are not very dark at night. One of the walls has glass inserts that let
in some light from outside, until quite late.
The hotel is situated just some hundred yards from the lake, but amid a maze
of narrow, congested, noisy streets that are overlowing with small shops.
Stairs, stairs, and stairs !.
The shops are small outside, some almost a hole-in-the-wall, but ample and
well organized on the inside. Haggle hard.

Room Tip: Third floor, Maharaja room
