“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012

Krishna Niwas is a family hotel, very well located in Udaipur, near everything that matters! We've stayed in lake view room: they're small, with more furniture than needed. You'll have some view of the lake, which is good. Also, although it's in the center, the hotel isn't noisy.
The owners are nice, but service is not their strong point: we've booked 3 nights and we had to change rooms in the second night - for one floor above, same room. Internet wasn't working and we never had our rooms cleaned - cleaning is not the best thing about this place.
But they're nice and it's like a guesthouse more than a hotel.
Bathroom is simple, with an average shower (of course there isn't box or curtains), hot water running all time. But there isn't much space to put things.
They don't have a restaurant and we never asked for breakfast there, so can't comment on that. They have cooking classes and the kitchen is really nice, but we didn't try it.
Also, there's lots of stairs and no lift, so if you have a problem with that, don't book it.
It's an average place, not a place to be after one tiring day. But has a good price and is really well located, so if this is the most important for you, try this hotel.

Room Tip: Lake view room if you want to see daylight.

We stayed at the Krishna Niwas for 3 nights in November. The location was perfect, right in the centre, close to the Jagdish Temple, and all of the main sights were within walking distance.

The room was clean, comfortable and air conditioned, and we had a lake view which looked straight out over the lake palace. The hotel is owner by an artist family, and they have decorated the place beautifully themselves. They run cookery classes which we didn't have time to do, but looked fantastic.

The owners were really lovely and helpful - we arrived off the overnight train at 7am, and they managed to sort us out with a room in half an hour despite checkin not officially being until 12, which we were really grateful for. They made us feel at home and helped us out with information about places to go and organised a taxi for us for the next leg of our trip.

Room Tip: loved our lake view room!

We had booked this hotel in September for two families one for us and another for our parents who were senior citizens.Me and my husband Anish Shastri just got fooled by relying on people like Agoda and online booking. When we arrived at hotel we came to know that the rooms were located on 4th floor without any lifts and hence they offered us to shift to adjoining hotel Mewar Niwas. They were just liars. They informed us that do not rely on agoda.com it does not pay good and they regret being associated with agoda.com. We should not inform agoda.com about the problem we are facing and they would pay for us in another hotel. After an hr once another hotel was booked they started moving away from their words and told us to do the payment and once they receive our order money from agoda they would credit amount to us. Till date after lotsa followups and phone calls they have just credited just Rs. 1000/-.
Also the rooms offered were pathetic for lake view it was just a small corner of lake seen from a small window of room. Their family stay in down floors and cook there and they offer another 3 rooms as hotel. Pathetic Non reliable People.

Room Tip: This hotel should not be booked at all. Pathetic rooms and liar people and management.

We stayed at this hotel in Nov'12 with family and was a pleasant stay. The best part of this hotel is its location which is near Jagdish temple, City palace and lake unlike other mid-range hotels which are in interiors of the city. The hotel representative is co-operative enough and will guide you with the proper and correct information for onward journey. The rooms are small but comfortable with hand paintings.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms on upper floors have nice view

We happened to stay at Hotel Krishna Niwas on a holiday to Udaipur between Sept 21 and Sept 25, 2012. The rooms were spotlessly clean, with beautiful paintings and with a good view of the Pichola Lake. Excellent Hospitality and room Service has to be put on record which makes us feel of a home, away from home. Further, the hotel is centrally located close to the City Palace and Jagdish Temple making movements very easy.

Room Tip: Wonderful view of the lake from the top floor lake view room.

Hotel is easily accessible and some of the attractions are just on walking distance.
View from the roof-top is very nice.
Though the rooms are small but are cozy.
The only thing which you may not like is room service. You have to wait for your order to come. They don't have restaurant, so you have to go out for your lunch and dinner. Eating out is good as there are few really nice places to enjoy your lunch/dinner.
They maintain cleanliness but some times you may have to ask them to get toilet/bathroom clean.
If you want your holiday to be relaxing and really luxuries then you should look for some other option.

Room Tip: Ask for the lake view room.

Hotel Krishna Niwas provided us with everything we needed after a long exhausting busride to Udaipur. It is conveniently located close to the palace, the lake and ghats and we could walk anywhere from there.
A warm welcome in the inviting lobby made us feel at home immediately and the spotless, beautifully handpainted room enhanced that feeling even more. Our wonderful host Sushma spoiled us with delicious homemade warm chocolate cake and ice-cream, which we savoured in their large kitchen. Too bad, that there was not enough time for a cooking class -next time! We will for sure be back one day and choose this place again. We highly recommend this hotel, it made our stay in Udaipur unforgettable.
