“Classic example of a government run property!”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

1.Conveniently located for those who are travelling by road on their own vehicle as it has ample parking.
2.Hotel is big but requires more maintenance.
3.Breakfast included which was so-so but not bad. The service was slow even in the buffet.
4.Rooms were very simple and basic but safe for family.
5.Kids will like it as it has 3 jhoolas(big-swings) and good open space in the premises.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground-floor if possible!

We chose the hotel as we were to only spend one night and were looking for a safe stop over for parking our vehicle in the night. The hotel is totally run down and though is pretty economically priced it maintains its typical Govt Run (down) image that invariably gets tagged to such establshments. Whilst it has a fair number of rooms and is very well located, its management or rather lack of management does NOT govern a repeat visit. Please give it a Go By.

Room Tip: maybe a good choice for back packers as is relatively a safer bet than the privately run / similar p...

This is a Govt property, but still the staff is very cooperative. The front office persons were always willing to settle any issues with service, provide travel assistance and guidance. For those waiting for a check in, there is a spacious lounge with toilet. The food served by their restaurant is average, but fresh and cheap as compared to other hotels. The hotel arranges sight seeing and trips through private operators at very competitive rates. We arranged for a taxi through hotel and got it at reasonable price and a new vehicle too. The location is convenient i.e. bang at Shastri Circle. Its easy to get autorickshaws and taxis here. There is a small market to take care of any other requirements. None of the major attractions is more than 3-4 km. away. We stayed in AC room which had a private balcony and large toilet. As it was winter, heater was provided. The rooms and toilets could be more clean, but the bed and linen were very very clean. The hotel seems to be a bit old and this shows on the furniture and fittings. The rooms are not having much decorations or fixtures and could be called bare.
One thing more, the hotel looks to be a unimpressive place by its facade and looks more like a residential house. However, this is a mistake committed by its designer and the hotel is not so unimpressive from the inside. One of the other flip sides is that the lift is not functional. I would recommend it for the budget traveller.

The hotel is pretty conveniently located. Rooms were good (I'd taken an AC room) but the toilet needs to be more clean, not that it is dirty, but should have a better maintenance. Planning a local sight seeing trip through the hotel should be avoided unless you want a car/bus trip. Local autos cater to sight seeing @ Rs. 500, for an entire day. While talking to the autos, inform them that the parking charges should be inclusive of the total fare. You will have ample time to look around. Also, dining at Hotel Kajri is pretty odd, they have arranged it in such a way that one has to take a thali in the dining room which is priced at Rs. 150 per plate. Try room service instead or go to Chetak Circle (very near to Shastri Circle, location of this hotel). Bawarchi restaurant is quite good. If you have a train to catch in the night, after 10 PM, then either reach the station by 9 PM or hire a private cab through the Hotel. Please note that auto services are not at all available in Udaipur after 10 PM. You will not find a single of them on road after 10 PM. Even I'd finalised one (my train was at 00:30 hrs) to pick me up at 10:45 PM, but it never turned up. The hotel service guys are good & helpful. There is a small handicraft store within the hotel with reasonably priced items.
Food quality is good and the breakfast arrangement is adequate, not sumptuous but good to eat & digest.
Overall a good experience. I'd given an average rating because my choice would have been a 'good' rating but not a 'very good' rating, but Trip Advisor has not given this option.

Room Tip: In any government hotel, always opt for an AC room.

Udaipur is perfect when covered by foot. For that purpose, Hotel Kajri is perfectly located at Shastri Circle. I'd leave in the morning & walk my way around the place or get into any of the shared autos or even the pvt. autos. All of them are readily accessible.
The rooms are bare. Even the A/C rooms were spare. The bathrooms are good with hot water facility. If you are traveling solo or on a shoestring budget, this will feel extremely comfortable. The service is not bad. Breakfast is included but nothing tasty or desirable although palatable. I would recommend having breakfast outside.
The rooms on the ground floor near the check-in counter can get noisy as the bell keeps ringing. But otherwise, the place is definitely worth the price.
Clearly not for a honeymoon stay! It is very safe for a family.

Room Tip: If you are with a family choose the A/C room. Pick rooms away from the main entrance.

Nice location, peaceful, safe and spacious rooms, not fancy but clean enough. service not great, but you can call and what you need will happen. The morning lobby person seemed shady, had no intention of helping, seemed to have an agenda to make commisions on setting up trips. He seemed to be sneaky and never straightforward. Other than this individual rest of the stay was good.

The breakfast was not fantastic but good enough. You have the Shastri sweet stores near by, they had great sweets. The Bawarchi restaurant is a 10 minute walk but the food there is awesome. They have a real great thali for 90 bucks, really value for money.

ATM's are nearby. The Auto stand is right beneath the hotel.

RTDC arranges trips for you, According to one driver we came accross during the trip, he said that you could get better rates if you go directly, couldnt verify this though.

Room Tip: if you are travelling during aug/sep you really dont need the AC rooms.
