I was on a Business Tour in India for a week and I was with my mother. The hotel staff is very courteous and treat the guests with a lot of respect. The ambience of the hotel is good. The Western food provided by the hotel is not so great. However, the overall quality of food is also really good. The rooms were very clean and I stayed in a suite which was very spacious. It was a very nice experience and I look forward to visit this hotel once again when I go to India...

Room Tip: the suites are quite spacious and better than the normal rooms. It makes you feel at home.

My fiance and I had a wonderful time staying in Amar Villas. While the room we had was gorgeous, comfortable and very clean, what really made us decide to stay here was the manager who welcomed us and got us settled in -- he was very friendly. It's a bit tucked away from the busy areas, which made it quiet and calm. The rooftop restaurant was surprisingly good too. All around, a great place to stay!

Udaipur was first place in Rajastan in India where we can rest a little bit.Amar Villas was VERY clean because it's a new place in Udaipur. Hotel staff were very helpfull and we could always ask about our problems.On the other hand it was very cheap place.More money we spent in their restaurant :P But restaurant was quite good ,it was tasty and quite cheap.Amar Villas is close to historical part of Udaipur so we didn't take riksha anytime. We had aircondition and tv with a lot of programs in the room and HOT water in bathroom so this is exclusive thing in this budget hotels in India
VERY NICE PLACE IN UDAIPUR

By accident we met nice riksha man who showed us this hotel. We completely love it. Staff is very helpful, rooms are new and clean, bathroom with hot water. Great view over the city. Good location. We absolutely recommend it. The manager has good character, always smiling and can speak English very well. Go for it.

We received a lovely reception in this hotel. Baba is a character and so welcoming and with such a nice way with him. it's all been painted beautifully and is a very good deal. Rooftop sunning area and high restaurant with views.
Room clean and freshly painted with ensuite and tv and aircon and fan.
Fantastic location near to footbridge to Lal Ghat and away from all the real noise tho dogs can bark.
The cook looks quite young and hasn't quite master english or hospitality but is very nice for all that and more importantly a VERY GOOD COOK and the food is well priced.
This is a highly recommended good option.

We found the Amar Villas quite by accident when our tuk tuk driver was taking us to hotels that turned out to be full. All and all a very pleasant surprise. Rooms were clean, hot water was present, bed was reasonably soft by Indian standards. The manager is a colourful character by the name of Munshi Baba. Munshi's smiling face is everpresent; he will ensure you have a pleasant stay. Munshi assured us the food was good in the (rather understated) restaurant. We were skeptical but gave it a whirl one evening and were pleasantly surprise was how good the food was.
