Shree Vilas, Udaipur is a nice property once you reach in. It is on the edge of Lake Pichola near The Leela. The property is peaceful and quiet. It has good view of the lake. The tent shaped rooms are neat and cozy. The rooms are fairly huge, the air-conditioners work fine, but yo will have to call up reception and ask for the AC remote. i dont know why the remote is kept with reception staff though. The upholstery is good and the staff attitude is good and helpful but area little slow in service. The main highlight is its location.
Now, coming to not so good things about this place. The biggest turn-off is its location again, I mean the way to reach it is so tough, you'll have to travel atleast 30-45 times, just to figure out the area where this place is located. You cannot reach by your car and also the hotel does not provide a secured park area outside (some 1.5 kms from hotel), so you'll be wondering about the status of the car. The hotel guys also charge a bomb to take us to the parking place and it depends on the place and extent of your requirement. If you are going to tourist spot, they charge Rs 100 to take you to parking, where as the driver demanded Rs 300 on the day when I was leaving to airport early morning. On top of all the mode of transport from hotel to parking place is in a century old autoT. he hotel guys just stay mum when enquired about these high prices, I feel they should be providing free transport as there is no other way to reach them. They make up the so called lesser rent by charging hefty for transport of 1.5 kms.
Go to this place if you want to relax and dont have the intention of travelling around Udaipur, otherwise your auto bill will be equal to your room rent.
