“Lovely pool and handy location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

We stayed here two nights at this lakeside hotel. We had a large room with a balcony facing the lake. The pool was fantastic and it was relaxing to have a drink out there later in the day. It was easy to get a tuk tuk into the city centre and not expensive. We pre-ordered dinner and it was very good. There were adverse reports of the front desk staff, but I didn't have any problems myself. There was free wifi with limitations on it, but it was adequate. The room was beautifully decorated and floors were marble. A very comfortable place to stay.

I visited udaipur in Sep-13 as well as Oct -13.
Sep-13 i stayed at Raas Leela which was right on the bank of Lake Pichola and in Oct -13 i stayed for a night in Swaroop Villas which is just oppossite the Swaroop Sagar Lake which is infact very small and not the kind of lake you would wish to see when you are in udaipur. Fateh Sagar and Pichola are the treat to visit.

Swaroop Sagar is reasonably size hotel with small swimming pool and all the modern amenities. It was a decent experiance. Rooms are specious and gives a good view of small swaroop sagar lake and also the view of Udaipur City. Fateh Sagar lake is just a 10-15 mins walk from the hotel and i am sure it's worth going for a walk in the morning.

Food was excellent, i couldn't try LAL MAAS in my sep-13 visit . At Swaroop Villas we ordered Lal Maas and it was really good. It was one of the best Mutton dish i ever had at any hotel. As per the feedback of my friends which accompnied me and who had Lal Maas previously, it wasn't the LAAL Maas exactly but it was very close to it. It was delicious and a must try if you are found of a mutton dish.

Situated opposite Lake Swaroop Sagar this lovely hotel is in a prime position next to the Old Town. Marble floors and decorated walls abound with rooms large enough to swing an Indian tiger. A very comfortable four poster king size bed with a ceiling fan above each side of the bed and a quiet air conditioner situated on the opposite wall. A flat screen TV, two comfortable sitting chairs and a writing desk and chair, a safe and plenty of storage space were also provided. The ensuite was a good size and the lovely shower over a bath had good pressure. Very good cheap same day laundry is available at the front desk. We had dinner on the rooftop and the food we selected was excellent. We ate our breakfasts in the restaurant and discovered that their omelettes (on request) were one of the best I've tasted.
The WIFI reception was poor but it is free and is only for an hour at a time. The hotel also has a wonderful swimming pool.
The in house massage parlour provided a good variety of massages but gents be warned you have to bare all for the full body massage - this could be a bit confronting to some!!!
A clothing/ napery shop is also in the hotel and they sell excellent quality clothing at very reasonable prices - not as cheap as in the Old Town but far better quality.
The Old Town is a 100 Rupee ride away and is an exciting experience but be alert when walking to the traffic that whizzes by. We went to the one hour Indian Bhagore Ki Havelli dance show at night and thoroughly enjoyed it. On our second night we had dinner at the Ambrai Restaurant that is situated on the edge of one of the seven man made lakes in Udaipur. The food was excellent but the view was sensational overlooking the royal palace and the hotels built in the middle of the lake. It is worth going to this restaurant just for the view but be sure to book first AND don't forget your camera like I did!!!

I stayed for only few nights in this hotel and I don't regret it. The location, the facilities make it a good place to stay. The room was spacious! A special mention to Lokesh at the internet facility and the shop who is a very welcome, nice person and very useful when you need informations about the country, the places to go...

I visited the hotel in March and absolutely loved it. Nice and spacious rooms, with a beautiful garden and pool. The souvenir shop and money exchange run by Lokesh Sanadhya is run very professionally. You can check your mails there and get interesting information about music and Indian cinema.

Don't know where to start from. This hotel over exceeded by expectations in many ways. Beautifully located near Swarppo sagar lake. I have stayed at many hotels over the years, often luxury ones with impeccable details and fantastic designs but nothing matches upto Hotel Swaroop Vilas. To start with room was spacious and well lighted with italian colored glass on windows, staff were really helpfull, swimming pool was clean and beautiful, we spent most of our time in here. The dining area is vast, and I had one of my best food expericence here at Sheesh Mahal. Had Lal Maans which was the best one I ever had and Dal Makhni was exceptionally delicious-must try. Roof top bar offers a nice view of lake. I am definetly going back here.

Room Tip: Go for heritage rooms or Lake view rooms if available.
