You can stay at any branded hotel in 3k plus ..but in udaipur you get old havelis turned into hotels at this price...the concept is good but if you think there is any historical aspect associated with the hotel than you will be disappointed.only thing is its close to the city palace and is on the banks of lake pichola. The famous TAJ Lake palace is in the mid of lake pichola and can be seen from here. BTW Taj goes for 30k a day but they have their own ferry to take you and maintaon very high standards. Nothing like that at Jagat nivas. If you look down at lake Pichola from any of the rooms you will find dirt and mosquitoes. To make it worse we were offered a room which was on a very low floor and the water was just 2 ft dowm. Which means you cannot open any windows. So do ask the hotel not to allot this room.
On the plus side you get good old style rooms neat and clean. Hot water. AC , wifi along with a roof top restaurent . The rates in the restaurent may look a bit on the higher side for average Indian but who cares as the clientele is 90% foreigners. The hotel is run professionallly so you will get prompt replies to your mails. Do not expect any hospitality from the hotels besides providing you with rooms. They will not extend check outs or even offer you to be comfortable while you arrange for something. These hotels have learned to offerservices at a price from the 5 stars but they have not learnt the basic principle of hotel business and that is to host the guests with a good smile and making him fully comfortable with a sense of serving and hospitality. So its up to you to decide...location is good but dont expext parking as the lanes are narrow with. packed hotels and shops.
PS: all the hotels on the banks of Lake Pichola should do something for the environment and try to keep the lake clean...its a bigger heritage that requires attention than any of the old havelis.
