Hotel Swaroop Vilas
Ranked #39 of 163 Hotels in Udaipur
Reviewed 22 March 2013

It is a heritage hotel which looks pretty good from outside. Inside the rooms the lightings are dull, bedsheets are not clean, and overall it looks quite old and shabby. Restaurant is expensive and food does not taste good at all. The buffet breakfast (which is included in the room tariff) has very limited spread. The service in the restaurant is also very poor. However, I liked the view of the lake and swimming pool from the room's window. Also, they had a place near the window of the room where you can sit and admire the morning sun and the light reflecting in the lake. Overall, I would say an ok hotel to stay just do not try the restaurant.

I stayed here for 3 nights in Feb 2013

Room Tip: Choose the lake view rooms to stay

This hotel was chosen for me by colleagues in Udaipur. On the plus side, it's opposite one of the lakes and rooms at the front of the hotel have a very nice view. The hotel is within easy reach of nearly anywhere you might want to go. I walked from the hotel into the old town area. The rooms are clean and spacious. On the downside, calling it quaint is to be kind. The hotel is a bit tired and run down. The breakfast is hardly worth the effort, very limited with the same choices every morning, no fresh brewed coffee (they will open the packet of instant coffe at the table for you though) and haphazard service. Breakfast and dinner, I found the food uninspired, okay but rather like the cheap Indian take away place near my home (actually, that place at home might be slightly better). This is definitely a tourist hotel, there were two large groups there during my stay, but really inadequate for business travelers. They have wireless Internet and you get one hour free daily. In theory you can arrange more than one hour, but good luck with that. I thought I had arranged several hours, but was cut off at one. By the time I got down to the desk and got a new password I had lost that hour's work. The front desk staff aren't extremely helpful, in arranging Internet service or suggesting places to eat other than their own restaurant or in arranging transport. Fortunately, being a tourist hotel taxis and rickshaws are easily available just outside the hotel. The one real plus was the rooftop bar....great view and two very friendly and attentive waiters. I would certainly stop by for a drink at the bar, but I'll stay elsewhere next visit to this wonderful (and amazingly friendly) city.

Good hotel with neat & Clean spacious rooms. View from room is ok. Hotel has a beautiful roof top bar. Food is very good quality & room service is quick. Only negative point is location, which is say around 2 - 3 km from city palace & main market hatipol. Even though hotel is bang opp lake swaroop -- which is very small & dirty.

Room Tip: All rooms are DLX rooms

Good curios shop, Mr Lokesh was very helpful, in guiding us. It was a pleasure interacting with him as he spoke good englsh. Purchased some items from hi shop. Ideally priced.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel Swaroop Vilas with a group of 12 . We found our room was very nice. Our rooms were very clean and we enjoyed the food.The staff were very pleasant and friendly .Out the front of the hotel is a money exchange, Internet Service, and gift shop which is run by a young man called Lokesh Sanadhya.
Lokesh was the most friendliest man I had met in India and as Australians would call him as a good bloke,friendly and helpful.Whoever stays at this Vilas please call into his little shop and exchange some money,use his Internet and maybe buy a gift or just to say hello and tell him they seen kims review on the Internet.

Nice hotel with lake view. Rooms are good with nice balconies to sit and relax. Room service was good but I do not appreciate the front desk people as in few occassions they were not that helpful.Food was a bit expensive compare to the quality. Hotel restaurant was good to sit and relax with a swimming pool view.

On arrival at the hotel we sent our laundry to reception, who promised that it would be back by 6pm the following day. The next day there was no sign of it and after many trips to reception the leader of our group managed to get it back, unironed and damp.
I can't remember much about the room, so I suppose it must have been average

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view
