We visited Udaipur mid-October 2013 and had pre-booked at Thamla Haveli. Initial skepticism was blown away by a warm welcome. The room was on top floor overlooking the the Lake. The roof-top restaurant is situated just outside this room. Its fun to have the food outside as the views are gorgeous all around...especially when the City Palace and the Ghats are lit up.
Disclaimer: The Haveli is not situated on the main body of Pichola Lake but on the north-eastern stretch overlooking the City Palace and Gangaur Ghat. Still, the views are breathtaking!
Though situated in a very old narrow lane (romance of Udaipur I guess), auto rickshaws are available nearby most of the time. Quite close to the Udaipur Palace is an added bonus!
About the room....spacious,furnished,well-ventilated....however, the large lake-facing glass windows (without shutters) are an issue when the sun is up......heats up the room quite a bit even when the AC is on.....but as we were travelling from morning-afternoon, it was not much of an issue for us either. The room (most probably 108) is highly recommended for tourists planning to 2-3 nights stay during FULL MOON!
Food....generally spicey...however, quite friendly staff....u can customise according to your needs. But, eating out is always an option in the locality.
Service should be better.....nevertheless, has a very cordial atmosphere among all the people in the Haveli....made the stay enjoyable and enchanting. Value for money indeed!
