This hotel is rather broken up for finding your way around. The restaurant is on top floor is open air with incredible views of the lake. Food was exceptionable. Service was as good as the food. Room was huge but not fantastic.

Our room, without a view and therefore very reasonable, was spotless, comfortable and quieter than those on the Lake View, restaurant side. The hotel ( a challenge to reach by taxi) is marvelously located for walking to the most important sights (Jain Temple and City Palace) and nearby quality shops. The staff was very helpful. Dinner was delicious and the breakfast (with marvelous birds outside the window) was scrumptious. A pleasure all around.

Room Tip: The rooms away from the lake are cheaper and quieter. As one can always sit where you can view the...

On occasion, one comes across a gem of a property that has one selfishly thinking whether it should even be 'reviewed' and announced to the rest of world... Jagat Niwas was just that!!

Located at the edge of the beautiful lake Pichola at Udaipur, a short rickshaw ride from the railway station and a quick walk to the Udaipur Palace, Bagore-ki-Haveli and other historic monuments, this pristine little white haveli is most certainly an experiential travelers delight.

Don't go looking for a typical 5-star ambiance!! There is no swimming pool, spa, business centre, gym or any other amenities other than all day dining of an average quality. And staying there involves climbing up 3 floors (if you want to visit the rooftop restaurant with its gorgeous view across the lake). But if you do want a quaint, one-of-a-kind Udaipur experience, don't bother to look any further.

The best rooms (do I need to say) are of course the ones with jharokas (traditional Rajasthani balcony) that overhang the lake. But if you're on a tighter budget, then the deluxe rooms towards the rear are quite charming as well (although a bit compromised on the privacy front with windows overlooking the internal common area and with little or no fenestrations overlooking the street) and you can instead spend your time seated in the restaurant with its lake-view alcoves instead. The rooms, although minimally appointed are spotlessly clean and well-maintained and the staff is efficient and amiable - even my booking experience, directly with the hotel via internet, was extremely efficient and painless.

Of course, I would certainly agree with other reviewers that the instant geyser (for heating water) is rather small, although it never ran short during my shower. Bathroom toiletries very basic, no tea & coffee maker, fridge etc and I can't be too sure about the wi-fi internet, the beds don't have a plush mattress (although they are comfortable!) and you have to pay for breakfast over and above; but really, we are talking about staying in a haveli and this is the experience that one should enjoy!!!

After visiting some other extremely over-priced (and I would say in some cases, seriously over-hyped) heritage properties, in the vicinity - including some of the rooms offered in the nearby palace hotel, I have to say that my friend and I were completely convinced that we had truly hit upon the real deal.

This hotel is in a great location, with wonderful views over the lake and a very nice restaurant. However, the accommodation is not quite as good. The rooms are a little tired and it can get noisy with all the people going to/from the restaurant. The service was also slightly disappointing, although to be fair this was only by comparison to the wonderful service we received elsewhere in India. The hotel also have very limited facilities.

I would certainly recommend going to the Jagat Niwas for a drink and/or dinner though.

We spent three nights here which gave us ample time to explore the city of Udaipur from a very central location. The hotel is reached by rickshaw through the narrow streets of the old city. Our room overlooked the lake and we had views of the Lake Palace. The room was quite small but had a large window seat to relax in after the bustle of the city. The rooftop restaurant served high quality food and staff were keen to ensure our needs were met. We would recommend jagat Niwas for anybody planning a trip to Udaipur.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a lake view.

Jagat Niwas Palace is almost perfect. It is an historic building with charming, airy spaces embedded in the center of historic Udaipur. Our room was gorgeous (overlooking the lake), the service and staff were extraordinary, the restaurant was excellent and very beautiful, and the price was right. We spent the next night in a hotel that was over twice the price and wished we were back at Jagat Niwas Palace. One note to travelers to India: take a good set of earplugs. There's practically no place where it's truly quiet. If it isn't trains or honking horns it's loud music.
