“Best place to stay in Udaipur”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

This hotel has the most beautiful view of Udaipur, specially from the rooftop. Each room has an balcony where you can look and listen what is happening at the other side of the lake. It's just beautiful

The hotel is an old palace with a wonderful collection of old pictures and paintings.

The staff is very, very nice and helpful.

I totally recomend having a swim in the lake and crossing to the floating palace!!

It's in the heart of the city and bank of the Lake Pichola..Lake facing rooms are great. It's a heritage hotel. Nice rooms...best part of the rooms are their "Jharokha" and a royal bed with cushions, from there you can see view of Lake, city Palace and Taj Palace...Vies is awesome in night...

Their roof -top swimming pool is great...We enjoyed a lot...my 2 yrs daughter enjoyed the swimming pool..We stayed for 3 days..they have arranged auto-taxi for city tour and also arranged milk for our baby on a single call.

Their roof top hotel and bar are awesome..great food and service...Must try their "Mutton Dhungar" and "Lal Maas" dishes..It' Rajasthan's speciality..Major restaurants and sites are very close to this hotel like..."Baghore Ki haveli"..there we have enjoyed various excellent folk dances and puppet show...Hotel will provide city guide...there you will find a lot of places to visit....Udaipur is mix up Lakes and hills....if u want to visit both go to Udaipur.

Last but not the least...this is a nice economical hotel for families and couples..gr8 food and service.excellent locaation..value for money. I recommend this hotel to all visitors.

Room Tip: 2nd floor lake facing rooms are nice...specialty corner one..

Located at edge of Lake Pichola, the rooms of this hotel offer a magnificent view of City Palace across the lake. The hotel has a very well maintained terrace top restaurant with extremely courteous staff. The quality of food as well as the quality of service are appreciable. Plus the experience of having dinner while enjoying a view of the lake on a dimly lit table was definitely a memorable one. Besides the facilities, there was one thing about this hotel that is making me write this review. It is the willingness of the hotel staff to serve their guests. It is often said that satisfied employees lead to satisfied customers. I would like to give the credit to the owners of the hotel for taking good care of their employees, because of which the employees take good care of their customers.

Following major incompetence by our booking company, Agoda, we were put into this hotel instead of our planned stay at Jagat Niwas Palace Hotel.

The Lake Pichola Hotel is located on the opposite side of the lake to the main attractions such as the City Palace. That said, it offers spectacular views across the lake that would otherwise be missed.

We were put in a suite, which was just gorgeous. Lots of space, massive bathroom, and two balcony areas perfect for gazing across Lake Pichola itself. The room had marble floors, with India rugs and was spotlessly clean.

On the hotel's roof there is a swimming pool and an evening restaurant offering even more amazing views of Udaipur. The pool was a perfect place to relax after a hot day's sightseeing.

The restaurant serves up excellent food at a very reasonable price. Breakfast is included in some tariffs, and is served in the ground-floor restaurant. Again it is reasonable priced, and enough to set you up for the day. You can choose from a number of set breakfast menus, or a la carte. This was where we were introduced to lemon soda – an amazingly simple and refreshing drink, which we continued to drink throughout out stay in India.

Although the hotel is situated on the opposite side of the lake to the main attractions, it only takes about ten minutes to walk to the other side. Or, as we did, flag down a tuk-tuk!

Overall, we would recommend this hotel for the rooms, food, location and those stunning roof top views!

Stayed April 2012, traveled as a couple

Did search few hotels on Lake Pichola before arriving in Udaipur, and while in Udaipur visited couple of them before checked in...

This is a lovely mid-range hotel, with excellent beautiful view of city palace from the rooms and roof top restaurant (which is the best), and marvelous view of lake palace from the roof top ..... At night while having drink & dinner the view of lake Pichola with the lighted landmarks in and around it, makes you calm, relax & cheerful...

The place is a good value for money, excellent location, well mannered & always helping staff, good service...

Road leading to the hotel is very very narrow, and which is the case for all best hotels on lake pichola... so be prepare for it

Housekeeping staff needs to be trained in a good service, cleaning, maintaining ... it was lacking... Also drinks are costly compare to 5 star properties like jag mandir and others..

Overall it was a happy and memorable stay, would suggest to friends & can come again..

Also i suggest all hotels on lake to take common decision of cleaning up the lake water on the lake edge....

Room Tip: Central rooms on the first floor or second floor on lake side... Good discount in off season...

Very nice views across the lake into the old town the hotel is not the best im sure but the rooms are clean furniture is dated but this is part of its charm, the room we had was a good size and light with a balcony, the electricity used to go off in the afternoon but hey this is India, the roof top restaurant and pool it a great place to eat and have a drink, the restaurant at nite has a real charm of its own with the city all lit up, can't recommend this hotel and restaurant more a must stay
