Backpacker Panda Lake Pichola Udaipur

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 23, 2012

I am delighted to be the first to comment on Amar Villas because this place is awesome! I found this place by chance...well, actually, I did what people aren't usually supposed to do and I let my autorickshaw driver lead me to this place. He told me his cousin works here. But I saw the room, was happy with the price they gave me (500 rupees) and couldn't have been happier with my choice. I probably wouldn't have found it on my own since it is off the street, behind the buildings. It is located on the Hanuman Ghat side of the lake, but just over the bridge so it's a short stroll to anywhere in town.

The very friendly, couteous and always helpful and available managers Praharlad and Munshi Baba told me that this is a new guesthouse, having just opened in the last few months. Everything does look new and there are some new decorative painting around the guesthouse which is very nice. The room was clean and there was plenty of hot water. All of the rooms appear to have flatscreen TVs as well.

Breakfast was the usual fare that you would find at any rooftop cafe but it was all freshly prepared and clean. You don't get direct lake views from this rooftop, but it was still lovely to sit up there. My room didn't have a view at all (I was facing another building) but I was out most of the day anyway. I got a bit of street noise in my room but since this seems like the quieter side of town, there wasn't any noise at night and I sleeping very well.

Overall, I suppose what made the place for me was the genuinely friendly managers who were very kind and respectful and made this a warm atmosphere to stay here. I really hope they are able to keep up this level of service and quality since I definitely would stay here again based on my experience.
