My career started from this White City of Pure Love in 1994, when I was employed with P&G as a member of the Sales team. So during the two years stay in this city, I fell in love with not just the city but also the people and their respect oozing language and friendly behavior.

So this love remained ingrained and i could renew this in Oct 2010, albeit this time with my wife and my two heartbeats in tow. Although I know the city as my back of my hand, still somehow i missed this fantastic boutique palace or should i say treasure trove back then. In fact we landed on early Oct morning from a Jet flight from Delhi. The drive itself reminded me of my youthful days. Once in to the hotel, the pure white walls strikes your eyes. We had booked the Maharaja Suite, which itself was a fantastic option with two big jharoka hanging on to the Lake Pichola and Lake Palace in full view. Implacable service, breakfast options include Indian, continental served on lake facing jharokas. Even the dinner on roof top is excellent. Services & the location is 5Star, so do opt for a lake facing room while booking. Also if you are on romantic renewal, then Maharaja Suite is the one. ( tip: open the windows(jharokas) in twilight /dusk time and go ahead to rekindle your erotic side with your mate.. it is large enough for a session of love…do remember i gave you the advice... well also kids must be asleep on the King size bed by then...) If anyone of you wish to know more, do feel free to drop a line to me..

We stayed at Jagat Niwas 24 years ago, always wondered what had happened to that simple and beloved place. Well, contrary to what often happens to such simple spots, Jagat Niwas grew up to be a bigger and more beautiful version of its original self. And it stayed modest in price. So this is by far the best place at the best price to stay in Udaipur. Many rooms are on the lake. The rooftop view is an unequalled view of Lake Palace and City Palace. Breeze blow off the lake as you dine. There are two floors, besides the restaurant, where you can take a window seat, stretch out, and enjoy one of the most gorgeous vistas on the planet. At a shade under $40 a night, would you trade this for a $600+ room at the Lake Palace? Why? You can't see the Lake Palace from there... Duh. Jagat Niwas' staff is attentive, the food is fine, the location unequalled. Do the math, and enjoy!

Room Tip: Try to get a lake view

Wonderful location with perfect views of the lake.
Friendly and efficient staff. Beautiful roof-top terrace.
We didn’t eat there much, so can’t really comment on the restaurant, but breafast was fine.
As with any lakeside property, take plenty of insect repellant.

We had two-lake facing, Pichola suite rooms with fabulous views from the windows

Room Tip: Go for the Pichola suites; wonderful lake view. Courtyard facing rooms may disappoint you

Stayed here with my wife for 3 nights as part of an Enchanting India tour. We used small/medium heritage-style hotels and weren't disappointed here. By good fortune we had Room 114 which is right at the top - actually above the roof-top restaurant - and hence had stunning & memorable views.
The staff were helpful and obliging in arranging all sorts of little things (eg tickets to the excellent folk dance & puppet show, avoiding the queue).
Eat at least once at the hotel's restaurant, for the view and the feel. The food is average to good, but we had rather better across the lake at the Ambrai.
You'll find the hotel v central for old city, palace, temples and shopping. If Udaipur is one of your last stops, leave room!

Room Tip: You might be wise to ask about access if you have restricted mobility - older hotel without lifts an...

We stayed for 3 nights at Jagat Niwas Palace and were delighted with our choice.

The pictures don't really do it justice. It's a stunning Hotel in stunning location and the views are even better.

We visited the other Havelis nearby and I just can't understand how they rank better on TripAdvisor. Nove of them have the character of this one, and their rooftop restaurants aren't a patch on this.

The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were spotless. The views are second to none in Udaipur and the bar and restaurant on the roof was the best we visited in Udaipur. It's a really central location too, but very quiet and peaceful in the evening.

If I returned to Udaipur, I wouldn't bother even considering elsewhere to stay (unless I become uber-rich and can stay at the lake palace - that said, their view can't be as good!)

Room Tip: Pay a little bit more for a lake view. Get a suite if you can afford it

I booked this hotel after visiting the beautiful roof top restaurant, and stayed two nights with my family. The rooms were charming, with low ceilings and tiny doors (mind your head!). The hotel is clean and comfortable, and the view of the lake is fantastic. It´s close to everything in the city, but still feels quiet and secluded, because of the layout of the building.
