The hotel is divided in the Deluxe rooms block, the Superior and Standard rooms block and the Dining section beside the pool. The rooms are very cozy and clean, though a bit small. Overall the hotel is very clean and tidy. The hotel offers very little view of the outside city, except for the Udaipur City Palace views from the rooftop rooms (amazing during the evenings when the palace lights up !). It’s Superior (few) and Deluxe rooms get the views of the Haveli’s lawns and pool. The view is beautiful. The atmosphere is very relaxing and peaceful. Hotel staff is very helpful.
This hotel is placed very close to Udaipur’s major tourist attractions such as The City Palace (500meters), Vintage Cars Museum (where one can also enjoy Rajasthani Thali food) and Garden Restaurant, Gulab Bagh, Jagdish Mandir (2-3 km), Ganghor and Lal Ghat (2-3km, must visit for the overall views during the evenings), Bagore Ki Haveli (2-3km), Hathi Pol market (4-5km). Given the cool weather we covered all these places walking and immersing ourselves in the colours of Udaipur. Saheliyon Ki Badi (garden), Karni Mata Mandir (and ropeway, good overall city views), Fateh Sagar Lake and Maharana Pratap Smarak (must visit for the overall views during daytime and the evenings) are little far and may be visited in a vehicle.
There is no room service (food & dining) in this hotel and all meals have to be taken in the dining room or the tables in the surrounding lawns. During winters this is fine in the mornings and afternoon but can be little irritating in the evenings when you’ve come after a long day city tour. We were also struck by the absence of proper doors and no heating systems in the Dining room. Having visited Udaipur in mid-Jan, when it gets quite chilly in the evenings and early mornings, dining was definitely not the best of the experiences, though the dining staff was very helpful and eager to help guests in all manners possible. Afternoon lunch on one of the lawn tables in highly recommended, so is a little late breakfast along-with live Santoor being played (hotel arranges Santoor musician by the pool during some of the mornings).
The hotel has car parking facility. Our car was safe and we felt happy that it was cleaned on daily basis (without any prior instructions by us on the same). We stayed in Superior room; Rooms 14 and 12 have best views (Superior rooms), we were lucky to stay in one of them. Overall a good experience.
