We stayed at the Krishna Niwas in early September during the Monsoon season (which is usually not the best time). We were lucky enough to have beautiful sunny weather and a full lake which we had an amazing view of from our room. The room itself was beatifully decorated with art work painted by the owner Jairaj (you can also purchase it from a shop nearby). On the first floor is the cooking classroom which his wife runs. We took a two hour cooking class to learn how to make three delicious curries and various breads which we ate at the end of the class. The kitchen is very well designed for cooking classes and Susma is a very experienced and patient teacher. She makes the base ingredients herself, including spices, so if you are passionate about your food like us, you will agree this is a great place to learn about Indian cooking. Then there was Digvijay on the front desk who is possibly the most helpful person we have come across; there was nothing he couldn't arrange for us. The location of the hotel is also very convenient as it was only a 3 minute walk to the City Palace or the Lake (so no need to haggle with the Auto drivers). Without doubt we would stay here again if we were coming back to Udaipur and that is saying something giving the amazing hotels in this area.
