“Lovely hotel, great manager/caretaker”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

Loved this place, a beautiful view and three big clean rooms. The resident manager/caretaker guy is fabulous. I'd advise spending some time with him, he's a mine of information, plus he can organise / tell you about pretty much anything you'd like to know. Want a beer on the rooftop? No problem, he'll get them delivered for a small charge. Want a taxi to the airport? No problem. Speaking of taxis and airports, make sure that they write the correct destination on your pre-paid slip. There are plenty of "Rajs" and "Niwas" in Udaipur in various combinations.

Room Tip: Top floor has the balcony, bottom floor is cool and quiet (but leave the curtains closed if you like...

This was our first trip to Udaipur and our stay was wonderful.We checked into Maharajah suite right at the 3rd floor and requires some fitness to go up the stairs.Beautiful room with clean bathroom and a nice private balcony facing the lake.Jasu was our friendly staff and he told me he is the solo staff and plays the role of receptionist,cook,room boy,and cleaner.We were impressed with his multi task role which he did.He prepared a nice continental breakfast which was served at the rooftop with lovely view.This hotel has only three rooms and Maharajah suite is the best to stay.

Room Tip: Choose Maharajah suite, it offers a fantastic view.

Been coming to India for many years and first time visiting Udaipur-found a few gems of hotels overlooking the lake,with reasonable pricing. this one is a small boutique hotel, with walk up, good exercise, top floor at maharag suite- big king size bed, good bathroom, plenty of hot water, sitting aslcove, and outside huge patio with two sitting alcoves as well. plenty of room for yoga or just hanging out and watching the sunset and lights shimering off the lake-love the place, has young mgr,but very good. will help with luggage and anything else. small staff,but do not need much more.perfect location in old town

Room Tip: top floor,for sure

After being sorely disappointed with our room at the Jagat Niwas Palace, we went in search of an alternative. We found it right around the corner! The Raj Niwas has just 3 rooms, we got 301 which is the top floor - super large room, fabulous bathroom and our own very large private roof top patio with fabulous view of Lake Pichola. THIS is what I had hoped for and we were so glad to find it.

Room Tip: Only 3 rooms - all are lovely but 301 is the only one with the private roof top patio.
