“Beautiful guesthouse by the lake”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We stayed at Jheel's for one night and had an amazing time. This hotel is perfectly located by Pichola Lake with beautiful views of the lake and city. Very close to the City Palace. The area is full of restaurants and coffee shops. The rooftop restaurant also has very nice views and they cook delicious food. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
The only set back is that internet had very poor signal inside our room.

terrible experience at jheels guest house
the staff were extremely rude (especially the bloke with little mans syndrome)
when my girl friend walked in she was expected to carry her bag up small high stairs while the men just stared at her. it wasn't until i demanded they help her did they move.
the tv had no channels
the hot water was luke warm
there is far better places to stay at better prices in the area.
they are relying on there guide book review.

Room Tip: Book somewhere else

Booked 2 nights here in advance but then got no replies to subsequent emails, despite chasing. On arrival we were shown to a room which didn't the match the spec we had booked and only after we queried it did they say they had not confirmed the booking so could only offer us this one (despite our names clearly in their book on arrival). The room was reasonable, but not clean (toenail clippings on the bed). Only on the evening after check in we were then told by the manager that we would have to move rooms to their older guest house down the road fir our second night. We didn't. We went elsewhere (to Karohi Haveli, which was very good). We were clearly used by Jheel as a backup booking. We got the impression this place is resting heavily on its fortunate lonely planet listing. There is much better, for less money nearby elsewhere.

Hotel Jheel was my home in Udaipur for two weeks and I felt most at home there. The rooms overlooking Lake Pichola are romantic and tastefully decorated. The bonus of staying here is that Hotel Jheel has a coffee shop on the ground floor serving what seemed to be the best coffee to be found in India ( proper coffee machine) and great pastries. On the top Terrace, affording the most beautiful views of the Lake and the opposite bank, the food served there ( Veg) is excellent. The most tranquil, most beautiful spot I found in the two weeks I stayed there. A great vantage point and centrally located in Lovely Udaipur

Room Tip: The top rooms are best for views

We really enjoyed our stay with a bedroom and balcony right over the lake. The owner runs an efficient busy hotel, coffee shop and rooftop restaurant, all very good quality. Would deffinately recommend and stay there on our next visit.

Beware - they tried to stick us in the old guest house - the non-lake facing side despite printed confirmation from the booking company. It took some time to straighten out, but we were eventually led to a beautiful room with a window seat overlooking the lake.

The location was wonderful - we could walk everywhere. And the food at the restaurant upstairs was good. The WiFi was down while we were there and the bathroom was dingy (I wore my sandals while showering). The cafe downstairs was alright. We ordered a tea and a coffee, for which they tried to charge us over 200 Rupees.

Good location for the price, just be firm and avoid the old guest house!

Twice I've stayed at Jheel's and really love this spot. The main building has beautiful rooms with waterfront views... I enjoyed having a window seat right on the lake. The room rates are very reasonable considering the great views and location. The second, older, guesthouse is nice, also. Actually, I prefer the older building...there is something very romantic about the older rooms.

The owners, Ramu and Dadu, are very helpful and friendly...as is Govind, one of the regular staff.

Try breakfast or dinner on the roof...great sunrise and sunset views of the lake and surrounding buildings.

Jheel's is close to all the things you want to see, but slightly off the tourist roads... so there is a little more peace and privacy.

I consider Jheel's my home when in Udaipur....it's a great spot to settle for a few days or a few weeks.
