Reviewed June 18, 2012

I had the privilege of staying in this hotel last week. I would not like to call this place a "hotel" - this was - to put it briefly - A HOME AWAY FROM HOME. The rooms were elegantly furnished with all modern facilities. the food was excellent. The service was unparalleled. The view from our room was breathtaking - our room was located in the third floor and had a lovely view of the lake and lake palace hotel. The roof top restaurant located in the fifth floor was a real treat. On the whole, a lovely place for a holiday, especially the affordable room tariffs. The hotel being a heritage property, does not have lift facility, so be prepared for a little "climb"!

Room Tip: Go for the Deluxe rooms - they have the best view.

i had checked in this hotel recently only with my family but to my surprise there was nobody to atleast pickup my bags and shift me in my rooms i have to carry bags to my rooms with my family secondly the manager was also not so polite no doubt rooms were clean and neat but too small for big family to check in . secondly i pointed out something which we indian prefer for which manager told that foreigners prefer this service so i think this hotel is for foreigners also there is no restuarent facility in the hotel u have take lunch and dinner outside which is very costly as per foreigners

Room Tip: for better view of the lake u can choose this hotel only for view

Rooms were small but very nice. The touches of art work make it feel more personal. The staff are very friendly and the cooking courses come highly recommended as they teach you basics like paneer curry and a magic masala chai. And in small groups which makes life easier. The location is great although lake view was partial and its not unique in having this. Would hold heatedly recommend it and great value in one of India's more pricey cities

My brothers and I stayed three nights here. We had good views of the lake and the Lake Palace, and the rooms, while small, were wonderfully clean and bright, with paintings on the wall and decorations by Jairaj, the owner, who is an artist. Jairaj and Sushma, and their manager Digvijay were considerate and caring when I became unwell during my stay - I'm lucky that it happened here, where there was a good family atmosphere and helpful service. Staff were happy to open the doors later for us when we wanted to be out at night after the doors closed at 11pm. The price of the rooms was very reasonable considering the quality and location!

Perfect budget hotel, negotiated on the price on the phone unti I was happy, upgraded me to a room with a great view of the floating palace because it was available when I arrived. Right near Jagat Niwas which has a great restaurant with great views.

I have stayed two weeks at Krishna Niwas and found it to be wonderully welcoming. All the staff are friendly, helpful, and make you feel one of the family. Digvijay and Rakesh are really helpful with any ideas about Udaipur, onward travel etc. Sushma gives cooking classes where you get to eat the fabulous food, and Jairaj is an arist who has beautifuly decorated all the rooms. Even Lalit of the housekeeping staff is ever friendly an ready to do anything needed.

The six rooms in the front have partial lake views, but at a much lower price than hotels right on the lakefront. The hotel is also convenient to tourist sites like the City Palace, Jagdish Mandir, and the lake. Also, you can have massage in the room!

Room Tip: Rooms 105 and 106 are quiet and have great views.
