“Exceptional Service and the most awesome view!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2012

Visiting Udaipur was almost like a childhood dream and since I knew exactly how I wanted this vacation to be,I did a lot of research and compared a lot of hotels online. I finally zeroed in on The Lalit Laxmi Vilas Palace as I was looking at a nice & luxurious hotel with a good lake view and with an ethinic Rajasthani touch to it and this was the perfect choice!
I was greeted very warmly by the hotel staff on my arrival and even though I had not requested for an early check in, the staff was very cooperative and helped us check in much before the actual check in time.
The service here is EXCEPTIONAL - the best I have seen till date. The staff was always smiling and ready to help with whatever we needed. The complimentary breakfast at the hotel is outstanding. The view of the Fateh Sagar lake from the front lawns of the hotel is very beautiful.
The hotel offers many performances for the guests. There is a Bagpiper band, a puppet show and rajasthani folk dances. We also tried the food at the restaurant - Aangan. The food was very simple and light and we enjoyed the meal more because of the folk dance performance.
I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking to go to Udaipur to enjoy and relax and have a great time!

recently visited two cities in rajasthan one of them being udaipur and stayed in this beautifully located hotel the Lalit Laxmi Vilas Palace. First thing that strikes you as soon as you enter is the beautiful view of Fateh Sagar lake from the hotel, as we had reached around 5pm we got to see the sun setting against a very scenic background. The hotel staff is extrememly courteous getting through the checkin very swiftly. Lake view room that we stayed in was nice, spacious and had a great view of the lake. Everybody in the hotel staff is very helpful from the guard at the entrance to the people at reception and everybody else. We had dinner at 'Padmini' which had a decent variety and a good meal was served, again a very good experience with the staff. Our buffet breakfast again had a decent menu but we thought a few more additions could have been great like parathas with curd, or jalebis, or some such indian dishes. We had a great stay at this hotel with just a few issues which i would like to highlight
1) despite a complaint at the reception the flush at our room was not working properly
2) the guy who took us to the room should have briefed us about the room as to how to use the safe, where is the minibar, how to use the extension, how to use our room key. not that anybody would be ignorant about all this but just a few inputs from the hotel people would familiarise the guest with there room
3) garden needs a bit upkeep
4) i dont know whether this falls under the hotel policy or not but i just thought that the driver who took us for a two hour visit of the city could have been just a bit more helpful had he been able to guide us regarding places to see, things to buy and similar sort of things.
These are some very small issues that we thought the hotel management should take care of, otherwise its a beautiful hotel and we would definitely want to visit again.

Room Tip: stayed in 601 had a beautiful view of the lake

During our recent Rajasthan trip, we chose to stick mainly to the old-time, famous hotels rather than the newcomers. And in Udaipur, we chose The Lalit Laxmi Vilas Palace Udaipur. Fantastic Views, Fantastic Service, Only dreams are made of a place like this! This spectacular hotel is so unique that words dont describe it. It is one of the most luxurious hotels I have ever stayed in: the rooms are beautiful, the gardens stunning and the staffs are just awesome. Simply great place.

Fantastic palace hotel overlooking Fateh Sagar Lake in Udaipur. The Lalit Laxmi Vilas Palace is one of the best hotels. Top of the lot. Check-in was quick. The staff was very welcoming. Very cheerful and smiling faces. The room size and quality of sleep was amazing. Since the hotel is located on the hill, the rooms are insulated from the din on the road. The lake view is fabulous. Cannot comment about the city view rooms. The sunset is a spectacle from the Aangan (open air bar). Mr Vinod and Mr Anuj deserve a special mention for their helpfulness and services. Must try Virgin Mojito. Also the food was terrific. Fish kebab and Jaisamand Macchhii are awesome. Nalli Nihari gosht and Laal Maas are too good give them a miss.

The hotel is ideally located close to the city palace and bombaiya bazaar.

All in all, it was a good decision to stay at The Lalit Laxmi Vilas Palace Hotel.
