“perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

The best place we stayed in our India travels. Elegant, spacious rooms. Incredibly helpful staff. Lots of common areas, including a lovely garden (great for kids!) And the location is ideal - you don't feel like you're in the chaotic, ultra-touristy part of Udaipur but you're still an easy 5 to 10 minute walk to the City Palace.

We stayed at Hibiscus for 4 nights. It was incredible. Carol and Babu are gracious hosts who are committed to ensuring you have a great stay. The guesthouse is in a great location, close to wonderful restaurants and the centre of town whilst still remaining quiet. Returning to the guesthouse after a day battling the streets of Udaipur was heaven. The decor is chic and the rooms very comfortable. You have to stay here!!!

This is a wonderful place, located just a short walk to all main attractions. The hosts are wonderful, Carol and Babu are full of entusiasm and their staff creates great food at the rooftop restaurant. The garden provides space and lots of birdlife. Highly recommendable.

The Trip Advisor reviews attracted us to this place and we were not disappointed. The location is great, it is very quiet, the room was spacious and simply but attractively appointed and the staff were very helpful. They didn't charge for some day use after check out.

Room Tip: Rooms seem to vary greatly in size but even the smaller ones were sufficient.

After 33 hours of travel from home, I finally made it to Hibiscus Guest House.

Thank God, Carol knew exactly what I needed. She had my room ready, had the hot water turned on and made me feel like at home right away.

I was so grateful that I came to the right place.

The location of the guest house was perfect. All the major sights are in walking distances yet it was far enough away from the noises.

Oh, and the terrace, from there, I enjoyed monkey watching in the morning, great breakfast, afternoon chai, sunset over the lake and fireworks at night.

As Carol welcomed me on my arrival, for my departure, Babu arranged me a very reliable driver to take me to Kumbhalgarh and Ranakpur then off to Jodhpur.

Staying at Hibiscus Guest House, I had a great start of my 3 week journey in Rajasthan.
