Panera bar is beautifully done up & one must try the royal jagmohan liquer.They have buggy services to ferry you from the City Complex...

We chose this hotel as it is one of the true palace hotels in Udaipur. We extended our budget to stay in one palace hotel during our stay in Rajasthan to experience the palace grandeur.

Decent hotel which is superbly located close to the city palace, the lake and the city. The rooms we stayed in were small with average amenities (Average room). The win is the poolside area and the suites which are awesome.
