“Amazing location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

For the money you pay to stay at this place, you get an amazing view with charming rooms and hands down the least rip-off service in Udaipur. We only stayed here for one night, but this place truly amazed us. The rooms are decorated in old Rajastan fashion, and they look out right on the lake and at the Old Palace. The rooftop restaurant was chill and laid back, and the wi-fi worked most of the time. The rooms are a little dank and the bathroom door didn't close, but other than that we had a fantastic time. The owner is very helpful without being pushy, and even steered us clear of a couple scams in the immediate area when he saw us talking to somebody he knew was a con-artist. We cannot recommend this hotel enough!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

I stayed here 5 days and found it very comfortable. My room was on the water and the views from it and the restaurant above my room were very beautiful. The resturant was also a good place to just hang out, read, or use the wifi. The owner arranged a car and driver for the day to go see the Kumbhalgarh Fort and the most beautiful Jain Temple at Ranakpur. My room was a good size and had a private bath with a hot shower available upon request. It could use some new sheets and the sink and toilet leaked water onto the floor, but overall it was a good room for a good value and I would stay here again. The owner is very nice and helpful. It is good to seek his advice about the price of things, how to bargain, where to go, travel arrangements, etc.

Room Tip: A room on the water with a window seat is very nice. I can't comment on the other rooms availabl...

This is a well located, simple, clean and safe place to stay. The rooms are right on the river and have city views. Lake Shore is a five minute walk over the footbridge. The restaurant has yummy food which is cooked freshly and is enjoyed on the terrace. The view can't be beaten. You will spend hours here chilling out. Hussein is a great host with lots of useful suggestions. He has some large fresh rooms in a new hotel which is not yet complete. Well worth looking at if you are after something different.

This place is great value. The rooms are run down but it's charming all the same and location excellent. The chef is fantastic, meals are so cheap too! Would have liked to watch octopussy but manager kept us hanging, maybe they don't even have a tv so watch it somewhere else! Enjoyed our stay here nonetheless.

Definatley value for money.

I booked through hostel world - and it was very cheap so I expected basic accomodation - which this is - but has an amazing charm.

The room looks like something out of a Picasso painting - and I had a window seat where I could practically touch the water out of the window!

The bathroom is you basic wet room - with nice hot water!

The roof terrace is amazing!

The staff are great - and put me in touch with their friend Jamil who took me on an tour of Udaipur - wonderful!

Would recommend this to anyone on a budget - and who wanted to meet some nice people.

Thanks

This building is over 200years old, it holds a beautiful atmosphere positioned right on the lake. I trust you will not be at all disappointed with such wonderful, interesting staff and a beautiful space to really get a feel for the old Udaipur. We stayed here for over a week. Udaipur is not to be missed!

This hotel was amazing. We took one of the superior rooms that was definitely worth the extra cash (check them out before you check in). The location is great, with a view out to the old town right over the lake (from rooms and the restaurant), and the food at the restaurant is pretty good. Staff are friendly and will organise a tuktuk tour of the city at a reasonable price that's well worth doing.

Room Tip: Ask to see the superior rooms, they're really spacious and well laid out.
