Hi, no hotel will guarantee you an early check in unless you book the room for the night before, however if they have rooms free I'm sure they'll allow you to check in on arrival, there's just no guarantees.

Udaipur is a very relaxing town so sounds like just what you are looking for. I stayed at the Lalit but I wouldn't recommend it based on location. If you want to easily get around, I'd recommend staying on Lake Pichola itself.

A short summary of my stay in Udaipur with a few recommendations can be found here: www.mangopancakes.com/2013/12/udaipur.html

Personally, I didnt find the site seeing in Udaipur to be very interesting - the palace is run down and not well maintained, and doesn't compare to Jodhpur or other places in Rajasthan. The town itself is nice though.

It may not be possible with a 1 year old, but if you were up for it, the trip to Ranakpur to see the Jain temple, and then the trip to the Kumbalgargh Fort are really nice. mangopancakes.com/2013/12/the-drive-from-jod…

Hi Hemant,

Feb and Nov are the peak-est months for tourism cities like Udaipur. I am sure you wouldn't like to wait for the room as you are traveling with family and infant too. In my opinion, you check with the hotel while making the reservation only. Some of the hotels might confirm as there are guests who leave Udaipur by early morning flights to delhi and mumbai. However it would be difficult to find one. I strongly suggest you book a night prior, if you are not ready t take a chance.

Around lake pichola is the preferred, and you would find hotels in your budget. But i am certain that if you could increase 3k you would get better place for a family stay with infant. (Thinking from Hygiene point of view), as its a peak season and everyone wants to make money.

There are some good guest houses and small hotels around lake pichola which are not so well branded but has decent accommodation and food. You need to strike some keys to find out. Tripadvisro reviews would certainly help you in choosing one.

Temperature would be between 12-25 degrees. Nights and early mornings are always much more cooler as lot of lakes are around.

Itinerary could include -

1. City Palace

2. Vintage Car Museum

3. Monsoon Palace/Sajjan Garh

4. Ranak Pur (Outside City)

5. Eklingj (Outside City)

6. Nathdwara (Outside City)
