We stayed 3 nights at the Ramada in Udaipur. It is a charming place with an incredible view of the city and Monsoon Palace. It is far away from the central area of Udaipur which was the only downside. However, it is quiet and clean. The 'fort-like' architecture lends a uniqueness to the experience and the grounds are lovely to walk around. The view from the roof is stunning and the air is clean-er seeming. The pool looked very inviting but it was too chilly for us to enjoy during our stay [early Jan 2014]. We enjoyed a few drinks in the lovely bar [small and quiet - a great respite spot to relax]. The bartender told me he'd never made a mango margarita [which I ordered from the menu]. It was beyond delicious! The complimentary masala peanuts and peas were equally delicious. The rooms were clean, large, and comfortable with free wi-fi. It was the only hotel in India we stayed in with free wi-fi. The service at the front desk was wonderful. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. We needed to stay an extra night due to flight issues and they were immediately accommodating. Aside from impeccable service, the food was the highlight. The Myra restaurant served fabulous food! We were in heaven for lunch and dinner. The breakfast buffet [that was free with our room package] offered a large selection of both Indian and western fare. The Indian choices by far were more delicious. While they had western and Chinese choices for lunch and dinner we stuck with the Indian food. The wait-staff were incredible sweet and went overboard to serve us in that typical Indian style of hovering [not annoyingly so]. They were thrilled when we enjoyed the spicier options but asked if we wanted milder choices. The food at this hotel is truly second to none compared to other hotels we stayed in [in both Delhi and Agra]. The restaurant manager came to chat with us and I jokingly asked for the recipe for a delectable shrimp dish. To my surprise and delight, he gave me a typed copy when we checked out the next morning. You cannot beat the service and food at this hotel. We liked the quiet relaxed feel and because we had access to a driver, it was ok to be a bit farther out. However, that is one thing to note -- if you want to walk around outside of the hotel grounds the area nearby is a local village - fascinatingly "India" but not a great place to walk about to be honest. The oly issue we had was with the heat which was turned off during the day and it was freezing. We were out most of the time so we didn't notice until one day we were there wanting to nap in the afternoon. However, I am sure if we had let them know, they would have turned on the heat. Our heat wasn't working well our first night but they sent an engineer immediately to fix it. It worked. They provide a complimentary bottled water each night as well which is a nice touch.
I highly recommend this hotel.
