Hotel Hilltop Palace
Ranked #69 of 163 Hotels in Udaipur
Reviewed February 8, 2008

Set atop a hill (no, really) above Udaipur, but within easy reach of the city by tuk tuk, this hotel had great views, charming rooms (large, with a balcony, a view and a swing), pretty gardens, tranquil pool (tho it was a bit chilly), courteous and efficient service, and wonderful garlic naan bread!

Udaipur is a beautiful city, there is so much to do and so much to admire. The city has its own magic, and I would love to go bak again, in fact, I wish I were there now. But Hilltop hotel is horrible. We arrived early in the morning, around 7. The restaurant was empty, and the food looked stale, as if it was brought from 2 nites ago. The receptionist was not welcoming at all. we had our room after 45 minutes, which is very understandable, but the biggest shock was the rooms we were assigned.

There was dust everywhere, the room seemed as if it were unoccupied for months. The bedding was dirty and falling apart, and the furniture, if any was really old, it has to go to the junk yard, and I am not exaggerating.

we asked for better rooms, and we were told that the hotel was full, and it was not true as I can tell from the restaurant.... It never got busy. By 11 oclock I went to speak to the manager, and he said the hotel is full, but he will do his best. we waited, and waited but no response, and no attention whatsoever. meanwhile two guys came trying to clean theroom. But no offence! they were the most useless cleaners I have ever seen in my life. We called the manager again, and told him we are leaving, then he said OK, I have better rooms for you. But it was too late, I lost my temper by that time, and I couldn't trust the people working there.
the hotel needs some major work and renovation, it is a pity to have in such a beautiful city, such a horrible hotel, with such bad management.

And guess what? till today I couldn't get my money back. But I left, I refused to let them spoil my beautiful holiday...

Keep your sanity, and just don't go to hilltop. (I call it now HELLTOP)There are so many other small midrange hotels in Udaipur. we stayed in Mahendra Prakash hotel. And that was a REAL DELIGHT... and a REAL TREAT. (read review)

Great to be high above the town, although the views from the hotel are not the "classic" views of Udaipur. The hall and stairs are spacious and clean. The room too was large, clean, with a big bed, hanging bed, and a balcony overlooking the gardens.

It's easy and cheap to get a cycle rickshaw down from the hotel and in to the main part of town. So getting in and out of town is not a problem at all.

Where the hotel really came in to its own was when my travelling companion had serious illness. This had been contracted elsewhere (probably Bera) and was sufficiently worrying to warrant calling a doctor at 3am. In the event, following discussion they didn't come out until the morning - which was an agreed course of action, but the hotel were wonderful, patient and very helpful during a worrying time.

Three of us ended up staying here by default as the hotel that a travel agent in Delhi had booked us into proved to be disastrous. In its time this hotel would have been wonderful, the views from the terrace and the rooftop restaurant are lovely. On our first night we had dinner down on the lawn, service was good and the food was nice.

Apart from our drink waiter mixing my G & T with coke !!! and being given two different answers to a question by front desk staff we have no complaints. The rooms are clean - especially the linen and the staff are pleasant.

The rooms are overpriced but because we were walk-ins the rate was probably higher. I would recommend this hotel.

This is a nice place to stay and explore the beauty and culture of this amazing city. The staff were friendly and helpful and the views from the Hotel are pretty spectacular - (see photos). In addition to the regular beds, there was also a great hanging bed in the room which was very relaxing. Good food also. There are also good views from the roof which is accessible.
