At the last minute we decided to go to Udaipur and we were disappointed none of our first choices were available. (Tip: book early for this town) This place had one room and one suite available and although the room was almost as lovely as the suite, since the price difference was negligible we opted for the larger suite. We meant to stay for only one night but we were so relaxed and happy here that we ended up staying several. First, I thought the room was lovely and I happily spent a lot of time just staring out the windows at the lake watching women wash clothes, boats drift by, birds, etc. Secondly, although I normally like to try new restaurants, the hotel's restaurant was fantastic. The food was great and the ambiance divine. Looking at the lake at night is so relaxing, the weather in February perfect, there was live music, puppet shows, congenial patrons at nearby tables. It was just blissful.
Another plus is the hotel is on the other side of the lake as most major attractions such as City Palace Museum. I liked this because it was nice and quiet and the attractions were still just a short walk away. The only downside was the hotel employees weren't quite as friendly as others I met elsewhere on the trip. They weren't rude so much as they seemed like they couldn't be bothered. They volunteered no information about the hotel, local attractions and even when pressed just seemed to shrug their shoulders. Maybe a language problem? Still, I thought the hotel was still a fantastic deal for the price.
