This review was long due and being the place this hotel is, I just had to write one.
This hotel is such a welcome change as compared to all the dingy hotels of Udaipur around the lakes, which have small, old, damp rooms filled with mosquitoes and other insects.
The hotel is located in a nice locality, just opp. to saheliyon ki baadi. I was in Udaipur on an official trip, and moved into this hotel the afternoon my husband was arriving. We had decided to stay in Rajasthan for a week post my work, and chanced to visit this hotel on trip advisor. The rave reviews ( without which I never ever book a hotel), convinced us to book it for our stay in Udaipur.
The entrance of the hotel is very neat and well maintained, and the check in was smooth. I actually checked in earlier and then changed into another room once my husband arrived, as he liked that one more. No fuss was made over that. The room we chose had twin beds, a decent view and beautiful furnishings.
Next day, the person in charge of rooms, shifted us to another room which had a double bed, even without asking us to do so...and that was sooo.... considerate. Every single person in this hotel, from every department, goes extra mile to make their visitors happy. This is something which is very rare in India, and we appreciated it completely.
Our new room was much more comfortable and had a very nice view of a field in its full bloom.
Our overall experience with their service was great, and then something happened. Our departure flight was in the evening, and we had covered up the places we wanted to visit before that. So we requested them to allow us to stay in the room till 2, as we would go for lunch in there marvelous restaurant post that. Being a weekend they could'nt do that, but we could stay for extra 2 hrs in the room. Post that we decided to go for a stroll, bought some last minute things and came back around 1. Then we chose to sit in their reception area till 2. Within minutes of our being there, a waiter came with juice glasses...complimentary!
Now where do you get this kind of attention and service? We were stumped.
And now coming to there food. The day we checked in, we decided to try dinner at their restaurant ( normally we rarely eat at hotel's restaurant as the food is never good), as my husband's flight was delayed by 2.5 hrs ( blessed Jet airways, tardy as ever. I just wish they could be fined every time they are late, the amount earned will be substantial) and I was on a fast and was verrryyyyy hungry.
So we asked them if we could have their rajasthani thali around 7:00 p.m, 30 min before their restaurant opening time. They agreed, but told us that only one kind of bread/chapati will be available. That was fine with us, we just wanted food to fill our stomachs.
At 6:45 we got call that the food was ready! Oh boy, was i glad. We were expecting the normal thalis that you get, chapati, dal, sabzi and some other stuff, but here again Amantra bowled us over.
The meal started with delicious, fresh tomato soup along with fried crackers of different kind. Then came the LOADED thali with choice of Three kind of rotis- missi, methi, tandoori roti.
And the delicacies in the thali...I can't even describe them , please refer to the pic for the same.
The experience was repeated for every meal we had there...day after day. And we stayed there for 5 days...
If they maintain their standard as the same , I would recommend that they open hotels PAN India, and we will definitely stay there.
Oh, and a word about their travel agency...wonderful, honest people, especially Ronak, and marvelous experience with them as well.
