Most hotels located on or have a good view of Lake Pichola cost a bomb... This one doesn't and for that alone I love this place. Beautiful premises that this hotel shares with its uber luxurious brother Udai Vilas.
Check-in was very nicely done - I arrived at about 4 in the morning and was given a room by around 5:30 or so - well before my scheduled check in time... which I greatly appreciate. As soon as you enter your room though, after check-in, just make sure everything works ... Nothing to fret though - one phonecall to the reception and whatever the problem will be fixed.
Just note that they partner with Avis for taxis for going around Udaipur - that is tremendously overpriced for what you'll finally get - a car from a local travels guy. Recommended to go to the travels guys directly - they charge less than half for whatever package Avis offers.
Would definitely recommend staying here. And if you do, make sure you go the Trident and Oberoi Jetty at night for a truly spectacular view of the lake and the palaces that surround it.More
