Reviewed 31 May 2012

Did search few hotels on Lake Pichola before arriving in Udaipur, and while in Udaipur visited couple of them before checked in...

This is a lovely mid-range hotel, with excellent beautiful view of city palace from the rooms and roof top restaurant (which is the best), and marvelous view of lake palace from the roof top ..... At night while having drink & dinner the view of lake Pichola with the lighted landmarks in and around it, makes you calm, relax & cheerful...

The place is a good value for money, excellent location, well mannered & always helping staff, good service...

Road leading to the hotel is very very narrow, and which is the case for all best hotels on lake pichola... so be prepare for it

Housekeeping staff needs to be trained in a good service, cleaning, maintaining ... it was lacking... Also drinks are costly compare to 5 star properties like jag mandir and others..

Overall it was a happy and memorable stay, would suggest to friends & can come again..

Also i suggest all hotels on lake to take common decision of cleaning up the lake water on the lake edge....

Room Tip: Central rooms on the first floor or second floor on lake side... Good discount in off season...

Very nice views across the lake into the old town the hotel is not the best im sure but the rooms are clean furniture is dated but this is part of its charm, the room we had was a good size and light with a balcony, the electricity used to go off in the afternoon but hey this is India, the roof top restaurant and pool it a great place to eat and have a drink, the restaurant at nite has a real charm of its own with the city all lit up, can't recommend this hotel and restaurant more a must stay

This hotel has one of the best locations in Udaipur, the view is amazing and the location perfect to visit all the sites Udaipur as well as close to cafes , shops and restaurants. The room we stayed in had a fantastic balcony which hangs directly above the lake and was the perefct place to cool down in the summer heat. Thanks to lake Pichola managment and all thier very kind staff for a very memerable stay.

A laid back and relaxing hotel in Udaipur. Lovely location, overlooking the lake and the City Palace. Good rooms, if slightly small, but clean and tidy - and great views! Restaurant on the terrace is very good - albeit a little dark. Do take a torch for the menu!

Room Tip: Make sure you have a lake view - and higher floors are better

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...
