“Eccellent location, very helpful staff”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 via mobile

The hotel is very central, 2 min walk to a peer for a boat ride on the lake and 5-10 min to the city palace. Our room was nice although the insulation is not good, we could hear a lot of noise coming from the street at night.
I was very impressed by the kindness of the staff who proved very helpful (they went to collect our luggage as our driver couldn't get the hotel, we could make several local phone calls for free, they could find a solution for a non functioning plug).
I would recommend this hotel for a stay in Udaipur.

I highly recommend Poonam Haveli. Our room was beautiful and spacious with sweet little alcoves for relaxing. It is in a great location with a rooftop restaurant that looks out over the city and lake, and of course, delicious food. The internet is fast and reliable and the staff is helpful, courteous and csring. Five Stars!!!

I stayed in this hotel October 2013 for six days with a friend.
this is our third trip to Udaipur.
we knew the place from the past, as we visited the restaurant a few times before- very friendly, great view and great food.
the place is very friendly, central location yet very quite, staff is helpful.
great value.

I stayed in this hotel based on recommendations from lonely planet as well as friends. And it was definitely the right choice for Udaipur.
Very nice, central location. Great view from the roof top terrace! Would have been even nicer without the rain...
I had the suite room, which was very spacious and nicely decorated with good taste. The food was good and the service impeccable. It is like being at home with friends, nice atmosphere. Especially the hotel owner is a lovely person. Good people, highly recommended!

The hotel is a no frill, low cost hotel. The fantastic part of the hotel is the view of Lake Pichola from the terrace and reasonably good food. Though the location is in the crowded part of the old town -we had a good time as most of the attractions were in walking distance.

The bathrooms were small and not clean. The bed was not too comfortable and had bed sheets which were not well cleaned. Although they claim free wifi - the connectivity is pathetic.

I chose Poonam Haveli based on the Lonely Planet recommendation on two trips to Udaipur this year and had a great experience both times. The location is brilliant - just behind the Jagdish Temple and only 5 minutes' walk from City Palace. The hotel is traditionally decorated without feeling kitschy, rooms are large with super-comfy beds (which isn't often the case in India I found...) and everything was spotlessly clean. Staff are genuinely kind and attentive and I always felt very welcome and well looked after. The restaurant serves Indian as well as some French foods and by far the best pizzas I've had in India - only topped by an amazing sunset view of Lake Pichola from the rooftop terrace. I would gladly recommend this place to anyone visiting Udaipur - you won't regret it.

I ended up staying here for one night after I arrived after curfew at my hotel to find the doors locked. This was a lovely room, clean, bright and airy, with a nice bathroom en suite. The hotel manager speaks fluent English and French and is very welcoming and chatty. The manager, Soni, arranged a miniature-painting art lesson for me with the lovely Guddu, a fantastic artist and patient teacher, which turned into lunch and a game of cards with other travellers, so it was a nice way to meet people and a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. The hotel is in a great location, close to all the main touristy things (museum, palace, temple etc). I also ate in the rooftop restaurant, and the food and the views were both lovely. I fell in love with Udaipur as a city on the whole and have been recommending a visit there to anyone who will listen. I think that this hotel would be perfect for my parents/retired people or those who like a bit of luxury and the standard was as you would expect from a good western hotel as opposed to a hostel or guesthouse. For those on a tighter budget, travelling solo or looking for more homely style accommodation rather than a hotel, then the guest house opposite is probably what you are looking for (Lake View Guest House).
