I visited Udaipur during the Mewar Festival with four of my friends, after checking out a few hotels we stumbled upon Udai Kothi. I must say it is one of the best hotels that will fit into your budget. Great service, lovely view and a swimming pool to die for. Though the hotel is compact yet it caterers to every need of its guests. Food is decent. Standard rooms are good. Hotel staff is cooperative.

If you are going with a group of friends, make sure you spend some time on the terrace at night. A great location for an evening dinner if you are travelling with your loved one.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are comfortable, before you go for a deluxe room do check out the standard rooms and...

This hotel was just the best in Udaipur!! We were greeted with a nice cooling drink and a garland.

Julie and I met the lovely and enchanting lady owner. We felt very privileged to have the use of the Udai Suite, with it's own jacuzzi, indoor pool, and beautiful rooftop.

The restaurant food and service was unsurpassed. This would have to be the best location for a restaurant in Udaipur; overlooking the beautiful lake.

Udai Kothi is remarkable for it's tranquility and magnificence. Excellent amenities, exceptional service and all beautifully presented.

Thank you for making our holiday memorable.

I'd read really bad reviews about this hotel and was preparing myself for the worst but, as it turned out, it was an absolutely gorgeous place to stay in Udaipur. Sure, it's not the most up-market hotel but it's well located on a fabulous street - Hanuman Ghat on Pichola Lake - with stunning city and lake views from the rooftop. It's exotic in its fabulously Udaipur-style architecture, facilities and it's interior decor. The open rooftop is like a fantasy playground that is stunning by day and magically transforms at night under a trillion stars. There's a large and beautiful pool which has sunken alcoves as well as an outdoor restaurant, bar and exotic domed seating areas. There seems to be variability with rooms. My room was large, spacious with beautiful bay windows and a great bathroom. Some days, it wasn't made up until fairly late in the day but this was the only slip. Breakfast was good and featured delicious authentic local cuisine as well as western fare. The staff were wonderful and went out of their way to make our three-night stay with our large group of 35, memorable.

After traveling 14 days in Rajasthan from Delhi to finish up in this lovely Hotel (seems like 5*) in Udaipur for only 2 nights before going home. Service so friendly: the doorman coming with sun umbrella when arriving home on TukTuk. Nice large rooms, beautiful pool, nice breakfast. Too bad we could not stay longer this time. I am going to put this hotel on my stopover from Europe back to Australia. Cheers!

Room Tip: Ground floor facing the garden

We loved the building although we got off to a bed start when shown to a room upstairs in the new block. The wardrobe had no hanging space, was unstable on the floor threatening to fall forwards on top of us with the door open and the inside door lock was coming off the frame. We were relocated to a darker room on the ground floor. The rooms are beautifully furnished in traditional Indian style with every facility. The beds are hard but comfortable.
There is some information in the rooms but non of practical value like meal times or room service number.
We also loved the roof top restaurant (except the pigeons!) with it's lovely candlelight tables overlooking the town and lake. The food was excellent. Breakfast was very good except for being served in too small a room which made it very awkward.
The staff were always friendly and helpful.
No computer for those without devices but lots of internet shops close by.
We stayed three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Room Tip: Upper floor for light. Ground floor in new block if stairs a problem.

I absolutely loved this hotel. It is visually beautiful from both the outside and the inside, decorated very tastefully with Indian sculptures, antique photos, sumptuous textiles and pots of fresh marigolds everywhere. You could spend hours just walking the lobby, halls and gardens taking in the décor and discovering little treasures. I found my single deluxe room to be simple but very comfortable and clean. The rooftop restaurant has an amazing view of the palace and the lake and is romantically lit up at night with candles. This ambiance is only heightened with the live sitar and tabla musicians who play while you dine. I found the food to be delicious and the service, especially in the restaurant, to be excellent.

Udaipur is one of the prettiest cities in India, and this hotel is the perfect place to stay to feel like you are on top of and in the center of it all.
