“Awsome Hotel...!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2012

We stayed March/April school holidays 2012 and would stay again. Greatest location, close to everything, clean modern and great staff. Lots of peaceful spots within also if I didn't want hustle and bustle

Everybody you meet stops to greet you, I have never had this in any hotel I stayed, however in this hotel, genuine service is part of the culture.
I mention the General Manager as he visits the restaurant at breakfast to talk with guests to see how their stay is.
I was there for a wedding but wished I could have stayed longer; if you are considering this hotel for a wedding or a relaxing holiday, don't hesitate....BOOK NOW

We were attracted by the location of the hotel with a great view of lighted fatesagar lake and the city from the top and got a good deal in this five star hotel which made it value for money. The rooms are good enough, comfortable and well maintained with almost all amenities. They have two dining options, Angan and Padmini. We had dinner at Angan, which is a garden restaurant where the food options were limited but the magnificent view of the city and lake made it up. We had breakfast at their other restaurant, Padmini, as a part of our package, where the buffet laid had good options like any three-four star hotel offers, nothing special on the menu but taste and service didn't disappoint us.
The hotel is of course little far from the crowd and located on top of a small hill, good for ones who want to stay at a peaceful location like us. And moreover Udaipur is not a big city so it hardly took much time to get to tourist places like city palace, lake pichola, sukhadiya circle etc.

Room Tip: Opt for lake view rooms to get best views.

Dear Mr. Yashvan,

Namaskar!

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback regarding our hotel. I am very grateful for your note complimenting the location and facilities of our hotel. Yes our deluxe room is quite comfortable with the magnificent view of Fateh Sagar Lake & the City View with the size of 300 sq feet with all modern amenities.

In regards to your feedback about the menu choices, we are in process of upgrading the menu for more international and regional delicacies. However should the guest have any personal preferences pertaining to food which is not there in the menu we try to fulfill their request.

Nearly all our guests who stay with us do consider our location ideal – away from the noise and chaos of the city, on top of the hill and yet close enough with all the main tourist places within the five kilometers from the hotel.

I am really delighted that your stay experience with us was just what you were looking for. I also do appreciate your letting me know some of the points which need fine tuning and they are already on pipe line.

It was indeed a pleasure having you at the Lalit Laxmi Vilas Palace and we look forward to welcoming you again.

Warm Regards,
Varun Sahani
General Manager

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

We stayed at this hotel in December 2011. We arrived following stays at luxury heritage hotels in other towns - this one was the best we saw.

Although contained within a period building the decor inside is actually quite modern - and in the room one will find all modern ameneties in perfect working order. The views of the lake are spectacular - visitors should note that this hotel is on the lesser of Udaipur's two lakes (not the one with the Lake Palace in it) - but this we actually found to be a positive. The sense of calm one gets when sitting on the verandah sipping tea can not be easily found in the centre of a bustling Indian town.

The quality of service is excellent. We ate at two different hotel resturants - the indoor breakfast buffet and dinner is very pleasant, whilst the outdoor restaurant was spectacular (and for roughly 10USD one can enjoy unlimited freshly cooked skewers of meat and fish, with dahl and biriyani, and unlimited beer!) In cold weather patio heaters were provided.

Service is discreet and efficient. We felt extremely welcome, but never pressured. Travelling to and from the airport is extremely easy by hotel car.

The only flaw of this hotel is a lack of facilities, compared to other Udaipur hotels in the price range. There is no swimming pool (one is being built), poor gym facilities and no business centre to speak of (wifi is, as in many Indian hotels, comically overpriced).

Despite all of this I would wholeheartedly recommend the hotel - unless a pool and gym is a priority for you I can think of no better place to stay in Udaipur.

Room Tip: Go for lake view. It might be more expensive, but it is well worth it to wake up and feel like a Mah...

We stayed here for four nights. The room was comfortable, but best of all was the view....close enough to enjoy Fateh Sagar Lake but far enough from the road and crowds to appreciate the serenity. I enjoyed it more than if we were staying on Lake Pichola which was teeming with tourists and hotels.

Service at The Lalit was good although they did mess up our taxi booking to the airport. But they made sure to connect with the airline/airport and helped check us in.

Room Tip: Please choose rooms with the lake view. it's worth paying for.

Stayed here as part of a small group (10 people) tour. Reception staff were welcoming and room spacious and comfortable with all mod cons – including fridge, tea/coffee making facilities, hair dryer and (chargeable) wi-fi. Breakfast buffet in the restaurant was good and varied.
We were here at the time of Holi and the hotel had laid on a colours event which was goodt fun and great to meet real Indian people celebrating the event.
If you have a bit of spare time, it is worth visiting Moti Magri – a hill with a ruined palace and pleasant gardens (open daily from 0800 entrance 30Rs). There's a short cut out of the hotel. From reception go to the left of the terrace and down the steps and then take the path to reach a road. Follow the road for about 400m along the edge of the lake and the entrance to the Moti Magri is on the left. 200m beyond is the landing stage for boats to Nehru island – a worthwhile diversion if you have half an hour to spare.

Very clean hotel located in an old princely estate, with a beautiful view on one of the two lakes. The staff is helpful and professional. The only problem is that the wi-fi is not free of charge, like in all 4 or 5 star-hotels in India (which is a shame when you consider the rates of the rooms...). But on the whole it's been a good experience.
