The views were magnificent. On one side across the lake was the city palace. Directly in front in the middle of the lake was the Lake Palace Hotel. The ambiance and location of the ground level restaurent was also brilliant with possibly the best views of the lake.
Apart from the views the stay was nothing extra ordinary. The rooms ( suites ) were neat and clean. We stayed in 2 different rooms both of which were stated to be suites. One ( no. 18 ) was large and appeared to be a suite , The other was nearly half its size ( no. 16 ) and did not appear to be suite though we were charged the same amount as a suite. There does not appear to be any standard for defining what is a suite and what is a deluxe room. The bathroom in room no. 16 had a peculiar smell. Hot water was luke warm at best of times and despite several complaints we received really hot water only on the last day. Service was otherwise good and efficient. I got the feeling that they preferred dealing with foreigners.
Overall it was worth staying in the hotel basically for its views.
