“Ok place in Udaipur”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

If you go to this hotel, make sure to visit the little gift shop next door. They have cute little gifts, jewellery, bags and internet. The owner, Lucky, is very friendly and can help with anything, including travel arrangements and money exchange.

I stayed at this hotel for almost a week. The staff were great and always bent over backwards to help you. I remember the guy in the gift shop the most.......... i think his name was 'Lucky'. Lucky was so friendly and accommodating, always smiling and made you feel at home.
He had a good selection of useful things for when you travel and had access to the internet too. I bought my mother some jewellery at a very reasonable price, she loves it and wears it all the time.
Next time i visit Udiapur i will definitely stay at Swaroop Vilas.

I stayed in Swaroop Vilas at Udaipur for 2 nights after being recommended as a good place by some one known at Jaipur.The location is awesome (over looking the swarop lake). The property is good heritage like in look and feel but contemporary by convenience and does give a great feeling on the value you derive.The Room (lake facing, Superior deluxe) was spacious. Bed linen was good, King size bed, study table, two seats and a coffee table make the room comfortable however for the attention of the discerning traveller please note, the bathroom doesn't have a health faucet ( I don't know why the hotel management has not thought of a Rs 700 convenience !) The hot water system is a tragedy. That was my experience. It does seem that the hotel depends on Solar heater and selectively turns on the electric heating system. I was disappointed and had to place my complaint multiple times and the best I could experience was a shade warmer than luke warm and in Jan that is unacceptable! The hotel has a nice pool (4 feet deep ). The restaurant overlooks the pool. There is terrace bar beside the pool over looking the lake. Overall looks are pretty! The food is decent for breakfast as well as for dinner. Please ask for tariff that includes Breakfast. For the wowing their visiting guests the hotel can consider offering cappuccino or atleast a filter coffee to enjoy in the cold Rajasthan winter!!!

Room Tip: Insist on the Hotel Promising "hot water" else you will end up spoiling your winter holida...

The place is unbeatable. It has amazing views of the lake. The hotel is beautiful and has authentic architecture. The rooms are huge and comfortable. The pool is also great. We had a great time swimming and playing in the pool. The hotel staff was very helpful and allowed us a late check out.

Room Tip: Lake Facing

Actually this has been an overriding case with other hotels in Rajasthan too - the tendency for management to title themselves as Heritage or Heritage style, when they really mean budget.

There is a difference : genuine heritage hotels have so much to offer, history, tradition, and quaint, quirky rooms and style. The problem comes when savvy businessmen try to cash in on this and pass off any place as heritage when it is not. Heritage is heritage and budget is budget.

Swaroop falls into the category of hotels that is far more to the budget and of the scale. Don't get me wrong, the exterior is nice as are the courtyards and the facade. But the rooms are basic, most of the time there is no hot water, the wifi mostly does not work, there is no heating (problem in winter) and the reception manager is just plain rude. I am not alone in rating this guy as curt and off hand. Look at previous posts and many people comment on this. How many poor reviews does the guy have to get before management does something?

The breakfast buffet is terrible. 4 or 5 selections which look like they were cooked many days previous . We arrived in the breakfast room to find the waiters asleep under the tables. This was 30 minutes after the published opening time.

In summary : avoid.

This hotel has a great view of the lake in Udaipur and is has a very calm and peaceful atmosphere. The Hotel staff is friendly and very helpful. The architecture of the Hotel captures the appearance of historical Udaipur. The hotel has a good restaurant on the terrace overlooking the lake. Stayed here during Christmas and enjoy a little firework show.
