Chandra Niwas...what a wonderful place with such a good persons....
If you travel to Udaipu and you want to feel home and see a beautiful view with the nicest family you have ever met just go to Chandra Niwas because the adorable Samvit and his family will make you feel so confortable and satisfied, they make sure you feel welcomed and are well taken cared of, everything there is lovely and makes you feel happy!

Don't miss the opportunity to meet Samvit, his family!

I recommend this place because i know once you go there you will certenly come back to that paradise.

I stayed at Chandra Niwas for 3 weeks while participating on the cultural exchange program, it rapidly became my home away from home. My room was spacious and nicely decorated with colorful bed sheets and warm covers for the cold weather, spacious closet and a hot shower for every morning. Breakfast is delicious you get a taste of real home made indian food every morning and BEST CHAI!! i've ever had (gonna miss it! ) If you like feeling like home when you travel this is definetely the best option

I stayed here for almost 3 months and it rapidly became like a second home. The family are some of the most kind, honest and generous people I have ever come across. I had a lovely room on the ground floor with my own bathroom - the room was cooled with a water cooler and a fan, always hot water, comfortable bed and privacy. WIFI is great, as is the food. Infact, all of the essentials and beyond are absolutely top, and the location is fantastic to get a real taste of India as the locals would live it. What I can't emphaise enough is the experience you will have by staying here. I was treated like a member of the family, which meant I was equipped for every scenario I was faced with. Samvit became my brother, and was an endless source of wisdom and advice, supporting me when things just got a bit much! I miss Chandra Niwas deeply, and would recommend it whole-heartedly.

Room Tip: I was given a lovely room on the front patio near the gate. Whilst some would see this as a negative...

I stayed at Chandra Niwas for one month while participating on the wonderful cultural exchange programme.The home is clean and tidy, in a fantastic, quite location and his family are simply beautiful people.
From the moment i arrived i felt as welcome as being in my own home and anything you needed, Samvit and his family cater for you in the best way they can.
The room was first class, spacious, air conditioned with very comfortable beds for a perfect nights sleep!
It's a short walk to the main town, with many corner shops so anything you need is easily accessible.
I would definatley reccomend anyone staying at the homestay for a truley perfect india experience!.

Room Tip: Book early!! All rooms are to a good standard but i had the semi-delux room on the top floor where i...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Ehi-Passika "come and experience" Buddha used to use this phrase when explorers used to ask about the beauty of his teaching. We are using this to welcome you all to come and experience our humble hospitality. Chandra Niwas is a simple homestay accommodation with basic rooms and bathroom fittings. It is our house which has been converted into a homestay for those who are interested in staying in the non touristy area. Most of all it is a place for socially responsible travelers and for those who are interested in getting to know our rural education initiatives. Located in a peaceful non-touristy neighborhood, Chandra Niwas provides guests with a unique opportunity to experience real Indian life and culture. This is not your average impersonal, commercial hotel in the middle of the touristy area. This is a Homestay into which you will be warmly welcomed and given personal attention to ensure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. We welcome those guests with an interest in exploring the local community and a desire to escape the hassles and touts that plague touristy areas. Part of the revenue generated from the Homestay is invested in a grassroots non-profit organization, providing education to rural youth. In all our rooms you will find wall-hangings and bed covers made by local village artists. We have many other local arts and crafts on display in the communal area, which guests may purchase if they wish. In addition, all of our staff are employed from local villages and trained for future employment in the hospitality industry. Most rooms have WiFi, and all rooms have en-suite bathrooms with 24 hours hot water. Breakfast is served in a lovely dining area where free internet access and WiFi is available. You may also eat on the roof-top, overlooking the organic vegetable garden, and home-cooked lunches and dinners are available upon request. We also have a small library created by past travelers, including travel books, novels, and DVDs. Your hosts, Dr. Samvit Audichya and his hospitable family will personally assist you in planning your days in Udaipur, depending on your interests and length of stay. The hosts will also gladly take care of your transport needs and help you with onward travel arrangements (all at no extra cost). We genuinely enjoy helping our guests! We are a ten minute drive from the city center (4 kms) and walking distance to many stores, restaurants and a pharmacy.During your stay at Chandra Niwas you will have the opportunity to see Udaipur not just through the eyes of a tourist, but through the eyes of a local. Chandra Niwas Homestay is best suited for mid budget travelers who wish to stay away from the touristy old town and wishes to experience the true Indian Home experience. Dr. Audichya has been connected with travel, hospitality, business and social work for the last six years and is now connecting them both. Chandra Niwas welcomes the guests to visit our village development projects. ... more   less
