Reviewed April 25, 2014

I stayed 4 nights. Solo female traveler. April 2014.

Udaipur is a beautiful city, do not miss going there. I booked 1 night thru expedia (paid in full $USD 46.69, included breakfast); the other 3 nights I booked thru their website, that reservation did not include breakfast. I was in room #62, at a different section of a new building. I imagined it was more quiet than the rooms in the main building, but I had zero view. The reason I booked this hotel was thinking that I could at least get a partial view of the lake. The best rooms are the corner rooms 11, 21, 31...but those were all booked.

As such, next time I will try another hotel. There is another hotel next to this one.

Positives:
Great staff. Everyone is super friendly and very professional. Yash and Harsh helped with all my requests and all transportation needs.
Clean room, hot shower.
Great relaxing view while eating at restaurant.
Restaurant has good prices and good Indian food.
Great location (walking distance to temple and palace

Negatives:
No phone on room.
Lots of stairs

I think my room was one of the most basics in this hotel. As such, I really just used it as a place to sleep and will try another hotel next time.

Dear Guest,
Thanks for a kind and detailed review. We are happy to know of your pleasant stay and satisfaction with our service. We read of your disappointment at not seeing the view from the room. We don't claim/promise lake view rooms, we haven't categorized our rooms as lake facing either. Guests booking 4 to 5 months in advance tend to get higher floor rooms and some of them coincidentally face the lake. We are happy that all else went well with your stay. We assure you of our best services and attention if you choose to come back to our small hotel with basic standard rooms.
We would love to welcome you again. Wish you happy times ahead!
Warm Regards from all of us at Jaiwana haveli, Udaipur.

I was very happy with my entire experience here. The staff was incredibly helpful. I especially appreciated their work to arrange transportation to some of the sights outside of the city. The rooms were nice enough and the food was great. It's also perfectly located for seeing the city. Well worth the money- this is a great base for seeing the area.

From the moment we were picked up from the overnight train from Agra, Jaiwana made our stay in this beautiful city pleasant and peaceful. Cool (in the temperature sense), well decorated rooms with beautiful views of the lake; excellent restaurant (also with views); and uniformly friendly and engaging staff (all of the porters, the waiters in the restaurants, and the brothers who run the haveli --- all were wonderful!).

One small complaint - the hotel hired cabs for us to go to the Monsoon Palace for sunset. One of the drivers was someone we'd driven with before and were comfortable with, but the other was new (to us, at least). On leaving the palace after sunset, the 'new' driver insisted on bringing us to a textile factory which he insisted was on the way home (it was not), even after we told him that one of our traveling companions was pregnant and needed to get to the restaurant we were going to for dinner so she could use the restroom and eat. We refused to get out of the car when he pulled into the factory parking lot and then they brought us to the restaurant, but it would have been nice if we hadn't had to go through that.

Room Tip: Ask for lake view if you want that; room (i think) 43 had a massive view and patio. We also had one...

Yash & Harsh - the clear differentiators on why Jaiwana scores very high on my list..!! These two brothers are passionate about what they do and I havent seen many promoters who are as hands on as these two guys are...absolutely wonderful.!
The place is right next to the Pichola lake and a lot of other tourist attractions which are all walkable. The rooms are spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds.
The restaurant is on the 4th floor with a spectacular view of the Pichola Lake....only downside is that the access is through stairs so people with dodgy knees might want to give it a miss!!
The food is good without being anything very special but the view more than makes up for it.
I keep coming back to the brothers but do spend some time talking to them as you will relish the conversation as they bring a different perspective to your trip.
On the last day of our stay we had a sick child with us and they were very kind enough to allow us to retain our rooms till afternoon even when the check out time was 10am.
For me that is a clear winner..!!! Thanks Yash & Harsh for making our Udaipur trip a great one.

Room Tip: Even if you dont get a room with a lake view , dont bother...you will enjoy your stay

We stayed in Jaiwana haveli in last december with lot of expectations in mind.We booked two rooms which were given on different floors.The lunch was average(read tasteless) and rooms were basic.A nice breakfast on the rooftop and great service by the staff was the saviour otherwise Iam still puzzled y its running on the top.Since we were there during the rush season, we found the owners were little not prepared to handle the issues like driver accomodation, room set up and we had really a bad fight with them for that.I personally think the location and setup of this hotel is to cater foreign tourist and Indians can have better option in the same price.

Dear Guests,
Thanks for reviewing us. We have read your comments and feel you really missed out on a great holiday due to a preconceived notion and lots of expectations. We do not provide accommodation to the drivers which we clearly mentioned. We are a small hotel and infra structurally not equipped with such large inventory of rooms. We do not see it as a shortcoming, we only expect our Guests to understand our limitations. You indeed preferred a bad fight but we were only pacifying your unreasonable temper the whole time. We hope sanity prevails and you do understand our point of view and limitations of a small hotel. We are not a countryside resort, it's a city hotel, working in it's best capacity to provide the best to all its Guests. Too many expectations indeed reduce Joy. We however apologize for not meeting the parameters of your imagination. Wish you a wonderful Year ahead.
Warm Regards from all of us at Jaiwana haveli, Udaipur.

Jaiwana is on of my absolute favorite hotels. The location is perfect to explore Udaipur, the view from the rooftop restaurant over the lake is magnificent and the service is perfect. Rooms are clean and have everything you need. Many of them have excellent views. The owners are extremely nice and helpful. I have stayed there three times.
