Lake Pichola Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 April 2012

We stayed in this hotel in Feb 2011. The hotel is right on the pichola lake! Any further inside and you would have to either stay at the super expensive Taj or Jag mandir.

Another pro of this hotel is the roof top restaurant, which has amazing view of the palace. The rooms are slightly above average, but the location more than makes up for it. Overall this is a value for money hotel.

There are a few cons as well which i have mentioned below..

pros: Location, roof top restaurant, value for money pricing
Cons:
1. Roads leading to this hotel are narrow (super narrow if you are used to metros like Delhi and Mumbai). It was challenging to take wide sedan on these roads. It is challenging, not impossible as we did it during peak traffic hours as well. But please note, any good hotel with such amazing location will face the same problem. Unless you stay at the Udai villas or Taj or at the palace.
2. Limited parking
3. Roof top dinner takes ages to come, so get there early and enjoy a really long chilled out dinner. Not a place where you want to go if you are in a hurry..

If it's all about location, then this hotel gets at 10! Situated right on the lake in the more quiet side of town, right next door to the fantastic restaurant Ambrai, you will be the envy of every boat passenger as you sip beer from the rooftop restaurant and take in the views of the beautiful Udaipur. Whilst some of the rooms may need a little extra TLC, the staff are so attentive and generous. We'd highly recommend a stay at Lake Pichola!!

Truly fantastic location, with views of the city palace and lake palace from the amazing roof terrace. Restaurant serves good local food too.

Delux rooms have views over the lake to the city palace opposite. They are clean and charming, but don't expect anything slick or luxurious. Bathrooms could do with a refurb.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms on second floor are better when the weather is hot, as the balconies are built in. You...

As part of a trip around Rajasthan, I was lucky enough to stay at this hotel for 4 nights. The location is amazing and the rooftop restaurant has friendly and helpful staff. Be sure to visit the museum directly across the lake from the hotel and see one of it's evening dance shows.

This hotel was clean, reasonably priced and is in a good area for walking about and meeting the locals.

Room Tip: make sure you ask for a lake view room

the hotels entry and its location is excellent. but the rooms need some renovation and maintenance... the roof top restaurant offers the best view of lake, lake palace hotel, etc. food and service at the restaurant is also good. good hotel if you plan to stay in the hotel for longer time of the day and if its not sunny during the day.

Lake pichola is about as far from a chain hotel as possible. It's a bit ram shackle but that is all part of its charm. Great views, lovely staff and a fab rooftop to hang out on. The restaurant is beautiful at night.

A very good hotel in a fantastic location, rooms overlook the lake and the ghat opposite and also the imposing City Palace. From the rooftop restaurant you can see Lake Palace Hotel and the City Palace. The food and the service are very good. Not sure the room description the we had matched the room given but it was a good hotel.
