Worth every penny!
Fabulous hotel with beautiful pool, amazing food, great service and nice spa on premises. Located in the best part of the town right on the lake, which makes rooms quiet and cozy.

The grounds of the hotel itself are beautiful - it is attached to the Udaipur City Palace; the hotel is pretty old and is kept well, but the pics on the website are a bit misleading; the pool is much smaller than it seems in photos, and the basic rooms are much smaller than shown. Otherwise, an excellent stay! It's the best place in Udaipur unless you want to fork over tons of cash to stay at the Leela or the Aman hotel. Go to Ambrai Restaurant, across the lake, for the best meal in town and a stunning view.

Good3.0 / 5
Is an area of historical importance so there are days open for outsiders to visit the surrounding areas and some of the access is through the hotel which was painful at times and access to resturaunts was a challenge. To get a cab at this time was also a challange as one had to walk all the way down hill out thru the main gate due to uncontrolled traffic

Poor1.0 / 5
A damp squib
We stayed for 2 nights in a palace room and I would not recommend this hotel. Room quality: Room was tiny and not 90 sq. meters (expedia). Hardly any space to move there. No lake-view from it and bathroom fittings, tiles, room furniture looks very old and does not contain the quality of a high-level hotel, which you expect in a similar price bracket. Room rent: We got a deal of around Rupees 6000/- per night and the room-rent for the palace room was way too higher for the room quality and services they offer, even for Rs 5000/- per night. Room location: The building of palace rooms is much away other parts of the building and the building looks like a separate building made for servant in older times. This creates a nuisance if it is raining or sun is beating outside. No elevators in the building of course. Room services: Cleaners do not replace used soaps and shampoo bottles everyday. Hidden charges: Basically, these guys can charge you for anything you ask them after you check-in, say bottled water, some eatable already put in the room and which seems complementary. I ended up in paying much extra money at the time of check out. Rude reception: The reception is all male staff and don't know how to talk politely and courteously. Services: The pool is very small in size i.e a baby pool. The hotel restaurant is very pricey with the given the food quality. Tip hungry waiters: Waiters will wait endlessly to be tipped all the time.
