Reviewed 30 October 2012

This hotel is in a great position , built right on the lake, and you can walk everywhere from here.
Our only complaints are , from time to time a bad drainage smell comes into the room from the bathroom.Close the door, put a plug in the sink and cover up the drains in the floor eg. with a book or a dust bin. The smell doesn't last for too long and usually happens in the late afternoon. And we had to ask for our sheets to be changed as they were very,very grey.That was no problem to the staff and we soon had clean, white sheets! The view is worth putting up with these couple of problems.

This hotel is in a beautiful location with a view of lake & is centrally located to access city palace, the temple & the market. The reach to this place by vehicle can be a little tedious but its worth it. We occupied 2 different rooms one facing the lake and other bigger room with out the river balcony.

Its people and service who bring in the smile and energy and not the just the location alone, Sad to say there is a difference in the approach and attitude towards tourist who travel from & away from India.

I wouldn't recommend this place for Indian's, if they are looking for service without partiality, & Yes rates are definitely expensive for the service though worth it for the location.

This place is yet to evolve ......if not on tourist sense at least on for business perspective,

This was our first time to Udaipur. And we were very impressed with the location of this Hotel. It sits right on the banks of Lake Pichola from where you can see Old Udaipur city. The rooms were nice and clean. Ours was a deluxe room which had A/C, but when we visited Udaipur (end September), you could do without A/C too. The food at this place was very nice. I am someone who needs my morning tea; this place served one of the best masala chai along with Aloo chees paratha (Thanks to Mr. Vijay). The roof top restaurant at this Hotel is also one of the best of its kinds. It was perfect weather during the night to sit back in the open sky, drink/eat and dazzle the city of Udaipur in the night.

Mr. Raj & his crew has truly been helpful right from the beginning from when we made the call to inquire about the Hotel, to making proper reservations, to recommending us every day on which all places to visit, and also on request arranging Horse riding where they came and picked/dropped us. This was one of the highlights of our trip. This was not your around the garden horse ride, they took us to a ranch, where we got to choose our horses, and took us on a 2 hr. trail through the local villages, and then through small hills that got us to a picture perfect lake which gave us a true horse riding experience.
I would surly recommend to stay at this place and would stay here again if I come back to Udaipur. The staff at this Hotel were very hospitable, humble and willing to help and accommodate to your personal requests.

Thanks to Mr. Raj and his Team for making our stay in Udaipur enjoyable and a memorable one.

Room Tip: Get the Deluxe Lake facing or the Suite which are located on the second floor.

The location is great, with a view over a northern neck of the lake to the ghat in the old quarter; also a short walk, via the Daiji footbridge, to the old quarter and the city palace. Lake-side rooms have spectacular views. The room was basic and okay; bathroom a wee on the decrepit side. Service good.

Room Tip: Lakeside rooms have views over the water

After a dry and dusty 6 hour drive from Jodphur, this hotel was a stunning relief at the end of the day. We opened our curtains to discover the quaint little balcony fringed with Indian architecture over looking the ghat. We were even more delighted when we ventured to the roof top to discover day beds and lounges. The food was good. The beer was cold and the service reasonably prompt. No cocktails available due to the holiday.

Each room has its own solar hot water which takes a while to come through but is heavenly when it does. My only complaint was the showerhead needs a some maintenance. breakfast is very basic.
the staff are attentive and helpful.

Excellent value for it's star rating & price.

After staying in the bigger cities, filled with the craziness of India, this was a much needed break and retreat from the madness. The hotel was clean and the staff was lovely. I had a great room on the lakeside and would have sat on the balcony all day long! The restaurant was good and had a great view. I enjoyed my stay here.
