The Shree Jagdish hotel is a beautiful heritage building located in the back streets close to the City Palace . The City Palace Complex, Lake Pichola, The Ghats and the Jagdish Temple are all just a few minutes walk.
However, travellers should be aware that this hotel is tucked away in very narrow back streets. It is often difficult for a car to reach the hotel entrance (a wandering cow or a badly parked scooter being sufficient to render the road impassable to cars.) We had to transfer to a tuk tuk with our bags for the last leg of the journey. However, this didn't cost much and the tuk tuk driver gave me change without being asked (something that has never happened to me before in India!)
Our room in the hotel was nicely furnished and decorated and was clean. It was also a little on the small side and was a bit dark due to the fact that the only Window faced internally into the court yard of the building.
The bathroom was clean and functional (once we worked out the hot and cold taps were the wrong way round.)
The hotel has a nice roof terrace for breakfast although due to the lie of the land, the lakes are not visible. Breakfast was buffet style - fairly standard Indian hotel fare.
The staff were very friendly although they seemed somewhat dis-organised at time. We were there for New Year and were told 8pm for the New Year feast, so were a bit disconcerted when we went onto the roof at 8pm to find that we were the only people there. Things didn't really get going for another hour and a half, but the food was excellent once it got going.
