We spent three nights here in August 2012. I had read reviews and certainly lived up to them!
We had a 1200 rps room, it was really nice, spacious, large comfy bed, very nicely decorated, good bathroom, window seat with views over the lake and fairy lights in the ceiling.
The rooftop restaurant was very nice. Very reasonable price and the best food we ate in udaipur and amazing views. It had WiFi although wasn't working when we were there apparently down to cables being disrupted in town.
My biggest praise of this hotel is for Rahil (the owner). He was incredibly friendly, helpful and welcoming. He welcomed us with pakoras, told us all about the local festivals and attractions with very refreshing honesty. He would dissuade us from using the facilities such as laundry as it was cheaper next door and recommended nice restaurants over his own even though we found his nicer!! He even took us to a authentic Rajasthan restaurant quite a distance away in his car,had a lovely meal with good company and even picked up the whole bill!
He treats his guests like family and was an amazing experience being there.
Highly recommended and will definitely return
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nayhee Haveli is an authentic Haveli in Old Udaipur, with original parts that are 100 years old. It is located on a typical Ghat on a narrow winding street, beside the lake. Experience local life from hearing the ringing of temple bells to the mezzuin calling from the mosque, watch in amazement as cows meander amidst the rickshaws and colorful sari-clad ladies wash clothes at the edge of the lake. The rooftop terrace has spectacular views over Lake Pichola, breathtakingly beautiful in the morning and at sunset. You can relax with a Masala tea, have a tasty traditional meal or just chill out and enjoy the view. This small friendly hotel has an authentic atmosphere from the narrow staircases to the shabby chic rooms which are clean and comfortable, and is a real home from home. ... more less
