The word Sarovar signifies a lake. Having booked a lake facing room on the Picchola we thought of a beautiful view of water in the early morning sun from our room window. What instead stared at us was the green and moss filled side of the lake and a washing ghat at the far end. The disappointment didn’t end there – all the rooms in the hotel had windows facing just that.
Having booked on the internet there was no way one could have backed out of the contract so we stayed on. To make matters worse there are several hotels that would give value for money at about Rs.2500/- per night stay so I wonder why we got this place whose entrance is through a maze of lanes and alleys and where women travelers are asked not move alone after dusk!!
However, the internal space of the hotel is decent in terms of ambience, room service and food. Internet rates per hour are expensive at the hotel. The restaurants are not much to write about, however the staff is courteous. Another drawback is no lifts / elevators for comfort to the elderly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- From the moment our guests pass through the grand haveli styled gates of the Sarovar and enter in to the cool marble facade reception area, a realization of having made the right choice of hotel settles in. The reception leads into an attractive lobby with its captivating outlook over Lake Pichola and the ghats across. Hotel Sarovar possesses an elegance that brings modern comforts in a traditional style. The hotel hangs on the very edge of Lake Pichola with unique views across the water body and towards the old part of Udaipur, the Indian city of lakes. Each room is spotlessly clean & tastefully ambient in style. At Sarovar we do not rely on chandeliers and gilt, or expensive fabrics and vast spacious lobbies to impress, nor do we believe these are enough to create the impression of luxury. Rather it is every little detail in the hotel that makes it easier for our guests to feel comfortable and welcome and that is what we strive to achieve the desired effect with. It is every interaction with every team member that makes the guests believe they are an individual and their experience is unique. It is the fact that at Sarovar voices are not raised and scents are not overpowering. It is the meticulous maintenance of our product - whether it is the finest quality or not - that helps in creating that perception of luxury. At Sarovar luxury is not expensive - it is borne of simplicity and a focus on making the experience seamless. ... more less
