Lal Ghat Guest House
Ranked #53 of 282 Udaipur B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 9, 2011

I stayed in the dorm for 100 IRS a night and it was perfect. Plus it has THE best view across the lake and the palace. There are lots of copy cats with similar names which are awful, so make sure you find the old and original Lalghat, it has been going the longest and it is in the best location. Staff are nice too, and offer all the services you need.

Room Tip: Dorm is brilliant.

Look - it's a 300 year old building located right smack on the lake with a beautiful view of the island palace, whats not to like? I stayed in a 400 rupees a night room that was impeccably clean and also had a wonderful view of the lake - but I spent most of my days sat in the breezy balcony chatting away to the eccentric travellers the guest house attracts. It has great internet facilities, a shop packed full of supplies, cheap snacks and tea, and is the only place I've stayed recommended by Lonely Planet that has kept its prices at those quoted in the book. Other travellers screamed about how wonderful the alcove dorms were, which came complete with lockers to store away valuables. Easily the best hotel on my trip, for the money.

This place is great for travellers with the essential internet room, a shop selling everything you could need and a big table in a central courtyard where you can meet other people and team up. Views from roof top are amazing. Best rooms are numbers 1 and 2 - 1,500 rupees per night but there are many cheaper options including the dorms. Only problem was the mugs were all cracked and I didn't enjoy drinking out of them and kitchen didn't look too modern and hygenic either so ate elsewhere. Some steep stairs with no handrail - just a drop down so not a good idea to get too drunk or attempt them in high heels! Noisey too.

The Lalghat guest house is wonderfully situated with lake views and a rooftop terrace. You will find many guesthouses and hotels hotels that offer this but what makes Lalghat stand out is the fantastic communal area which so many of the guest houses lack. The authentic exposed stone against the lake backdrop makes this is a great place to kick back whilst reading a book or chatting to fellow travelers with a lemon and ginger tea! The more budget rooms are clean but basic though we did upgrade to one of their higher ranges rooms for 1,200 R per night and it was worth every penny.

The staff are friendly and accommodating and if you are leaving the guest house in the evening to catch a sleeper train/bus, you will be able to shower in one of their communal showers.

All in all a lovely guest house and certainly worth paying a bit extra for one of the more expensive rooms.
