“Nice stay, value for money”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Pros:
1. The staff (esp. Mr. Kulbhushan at reception) were very accommodating and polite
We arrived early in the morning without notice. We had breakfast while they arranged a temporary room for us (at no extra charge) to freshen up. They also moved our luggage in the afternoon, since we headed out early.

Mr. Kulbushan helped us in planning our visits around the city and, reserved bus seats for onward journey.

2. The restaurant and lake-facing rooms have great views.

3. Great location: Situated near Bagore-ki Haveli - has a small open area tiled with stone slabs with steps into the lake. Its a treat to sit here in the early hours, seeing the pigeons feed and fly around.
- also, in a walk-able distance to city palace.

Cons:
1. Some toilet utilities were broken, leaking. The bath rooms were not particularly clean. In one of the rooms, a towel lay all wet on the floor when we checked in.

2. There is Hanuman temple beside the building. So on saturday nights, pooja and chanting may go late into the night or start early on Sunday morning. I am a heavy sleeper and my wife was very tired - so we did not find it a trouble.

3. Lift is old style. So if someone does not close both the shutters properly, the lift becomes useless until someone goes to that floor to rectify it.

Room Tip: Take the lake facing rooms, preferably just below the restaurant.

After a horrible few days in Delhi and Jaipur, Udaipur is a breath of fresh air. The hotel is right In the heart of the city in the culture district, easy walking distance everywhere. My room was comfortable and clean. I didn't have a view, at all, my window was blocked with an ac cassette, so no natural light for me.... I owe this to the scam Delhi rip off artists making sure I was in the cheapest room. However if this was the worst they had to offer, it was great. Clean, comfortable and really friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast up in the restaurant overlooking the lake is gorgeous.
I would definatley stay again and recommend to others.

Stayed at Pichola Haveli for a day..Must say its a great hotel, great food and above all great customer service. They gave us a nice welcome and gave us the best room to stay which was exactly what we demanded, a lake facing room. The person their Mr. Kulbhusan was very helpful, and very coopeartive. I would suggest ppl to stay here, very close to Jagdish temple, bagore ki haveli and city palace and very nice for a comfortable stay.

We were in room 301 which is large and has fabulous views to the lake and city palace, with lovely little chill out areas to boot. We fell in love with it at first sight. However, we fell more in love with the potential of the place than how it was right now. So, we got to redecorating (we were staying for a week) - putting up saris we'd purchased for curtaining and covering the cushions etc. And we gave the place a good thorough clean (it wasn't clean when we checked in). Within an hour or so we realised OUR vision. Anyway, we kind of felt like this about the whole place. Basically, its all goodish and does have good views but it is really in need of some tender loving care and attention. Furnishings are tatty and outdated, colour schemes off the mark for the property and the cleaning staff obviously don't go looking for dirt. If the management could put some thought, vision, energy, a little work and probably not so much money into improving this place, it could really be transformed into something exceptional and probably a whole lot more lucrative.

Room Tip: Room 301 does have a great view

I stayed here with my family and we enjoyed thoroughly. Their rooms are cheap and the location is right off the bank of the lake Pichola. The property might not be grand but it is extremely comfortable and the people here are very co-operative and polite. You can see the entire lake and some very famous hotels from their terrace/roof-top restaurant. If you are a back-packer or an on-budget traveller, this is perfect as you can walk a bit from the hotel through the heart of Udaipur and see some beautiful colours/temples/people. Even for couples, this place is perfect as the rooms have a very ethnic-haveli type look!

The staff was really nice and provided us with all the services we needed. The room was big, nice, we felt like maharajas, they have this nice place to sit by the window, watch the view and rest. TV LCD with cable, wi-fi in the bedroom, free, really fast. Nice breakfast (toast, omelete, fruit, coffee / tea) served on the rooftop with view to the Pichola Lake and the Lake Palace. Restaurant with reasonable prices but we did not use it because there are so many options in town. Walking distance to all the important things in town, near the Gangaur Ghat (one of the prettiest ones).. Clean and confortable.

Room Tip: We saw some three or four rooms and they looked all the same. Some rooms have problems with hot wate...

Great location right on the lake and within easy walking distance to all of Udaipur lake sights.
Rooftop restaurant is perfect place to enjoy sunset, a few cool kingfisher beers and a good tasty indian meal.
Reception staff are very helpful.
Rooms are very large, king size bed, comfortable chairs and writting desk etc.
Bathroom is large and ok cleanliness but the hotwater was very intermittent.
Because of it's very central location it can get a bit noisy especially in the early morning. Sound proofing in the hotel seems to be minimial. Recommend choosing higher floor rooms away from the street noise.
Despite the noise (use ear plugs) we loved the location and room size and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Recommend choosing higher floor rooms away from the street noise.
