If you visit udaipur why would you not stay here? As we arrived realised you are staying within the palace grounds so extremely safe and secure. More importantly you can access everything from here- 2 amazing restaurants one by the lake (the lake terrace) where the sunset is beautiful and the other set by the pool or inside with views over city. The staff are great especially mr vikas a credit to the hotel- free wifi, arranged onward transfers and just extremely helpful.
The grounds were perfect - evenings spent watching over the lake or city or the incredible light show 125 rupees on lower level 7pm most nights, boat ride in day drops you on an island which is great value although beer there is 500 rupees but worth it for view- go on last boat 5pm. The museum is interesting and you get a real understanding of where you are staying - we were lucky enough to be there for the ashwa poojan and met the leader with evening entertainment- wow. If you stay in October make sure you go to this. The mooch around udaipur around is nice with great shops for souvenirs or gifts- don't get ripped off visit padmawti gifts - cheapest, most helpful shop with tea- lower price you buy more very true.
I could write a lot more but stay here 3 days was perfect no issues at all. Highly recommended.
