Pratap Bhawan was designed by the architecture of Havelis, structures typical of Rajasthan.
In the lobby, The marble staircase leading to The 13delux rooms with air-condition and Television.We have roof top Restaurant, giving the occupants a beautiful and enchanting 360 degrees view on the lake and the old town nearby.
This hotel with family atmosphere is located in "Lal Ghat" (center of the old city of Udaipur), 5 minutes walk from Lake Pichola, the jagdeesh Temple, City Palace as well as many shops that line the maze of streets connecting the various points of interest and lakes.
Large spacious rooms, perfect location and the food at Charcoal is delicious. Perfect hosts.. extremely welcoming..absolutely loved the beautiful view of lake Pichola from our room and the restaurant.
We had a very nice 4-night stay here. The location is great - an easy walk to anywhere in the old city, yet a little apart from the noisier roads. The staff were all friendly and accommodating, and the rooftop restaurant was great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our room (# 9) had a great view of the lake from a very cosy little seating area that was my partner’s favorite spot (in the whole city!) Some people may not like the noise from the restaurant overhead but we didn’t find it bad during the day, and with our trusty earplugs we were able to sleep well every night. The shower had plenty of hot water and good pressure.
This small hotel offers excellent value. As mentioned in other posts Room 109 has the best lake view and it is directly under the kitchen. Hotel management was very upfront about this and gave us a choice of rooms and offered to change our room if we found it too noisy. We loved our window seat overlooking the lake, with the windows open the breeze came in. There is some noise from the kitchen above and from people going up and down the stairs to the restaurant but for us it was worth it for the view at that price. If you want a great view and a quiet room expect to pay much more, or bring a set of cheap earplugs, always a travel essential for us! The restaurant serves excellent food, after 5 days in the holy city of Pushkar with no meat, eggs or alcohol the beer and barbecue/tandoor were very welcome!…
We have booked this hotel directly on the website provided by the owner Mr.Singh. There are 2 category of rooms, Standard AC and Super Deluxe AC. We booked 2 Super Deluxe AC for 2 nights for 2 families. On reaching the hotel they provided only one Super Deluxe Room and one Standard AC room. Upon enquiring and asking, the owner told that no rooms are available and we have to accomodate ourselves in this only. When we asked that then please adjust the money which is half the price of Super Deluxe room he started shouting and said that he was doing a favor to accomodate us, and if we dont like then we can leave the hotel. Since we booked the hotel through a local contact of ours, we called him. When he intervened the owner's nature was changed immediately. Later they provided us with Super Deluxe room. He was a big liar to say it on our face that there was no availability of rooms, however what seems was that he didnt gave us the required room to keep hold that room to sell that to some other tourist at a higher price. I read a similar review from some other person too and I couldn't agree more for this type of behaviour. Overall it was a very bad experience which had left a bad taste of the entire stay. I dont know why he does this, when his roof top restaurant Charcoal is a very good one, with excellent food with variety of dishes both Indian and continental. The rooms were ok, but bathroom was small specially the pot area which was fitted in a corner and would be difficult for a healthy person to move sideways. …
Our room at the Pratap Bhawan was very clean, comfortable, and well appointed. After staying in some real budget dives, it was wonderful to have a proper bathroom with plenty of hot water. The food at the rooftop restaurant was absolutely delicious and the prices for Indian vegetarian choices were amongst the cheapest we found in the Lal Ghat area. The view of the lake from the restaurant is amazing as well.
We stayed here three nights in room 103. Krishna checked us in and he was great throughout our stay. TV did not work in first room so they moved us. They even tried to subscribe to CNN and BBC for us, but to no avail. Had Russia TV and Al Jazeera though so all good. We ate at their Rooftop restaurant twice, called Charcoal. Delicious. Had Lamb and Pork skewers, BBQ Chicken and Tacos. The French fries were very good. Kingfisher on the roof for sunset views. Spectacular views of Lake Pichola. You must try their Milk Coffee. The best in India and only 40R. The owner Shakti Singh and his son Mahupal were extremely professional and attentive to all our needs. Thank you from Fabian and Sandy.
Excellent place to stay in Udaipur. The room was cozy and clean. Bed sheets were clean and fresh, which is fundamental for a Hotel. The staff was very kind and helpful. On the roof top there is a very good restaurant "charcoal" where to eat at the beautiful view of the lake. We definitely recommend this hotel. It also situated in a very good location.
We were very lucky to have the top floor overlooking the lake. The view is to die for especially as the sunsets and rises. It is in good location and everything is accessible on foot. The decoration is very traditional and gives a great feel and charm to the hotel. All the staff are very friendly and helpful, I had my clothes laundered very cheaply and all within a few hours. The rooftop terrace is perfect for a drink (even a G&T with mineral water ice cubes)or the incredible Charcoal restaurant offers everything and the Manager, Santi is available to give suggestions on what to order. Delicious! If the evening is cooler they put firepits which add to a great atmosphere and fantastic views. Excellent stay 5 stars!
Stayed here for 5 nights and was very comfortable. Good large clean rooms with windows and lots of light. Hot water and WiFi reliable. Staff very friendly and efficient. Good position and not at all noisy. Highly recommended.
This hotel is in a very convenient location and our room had a lovely view of the lake. Unfortunately, the room was not totally clean. The water in the shower was luke-warm at best, but the staff said that everything was working properly. The beds had very thin blankets and the room did not have a space heater. We froze on our first night. We had to ask for extra blankets for the next night. It was very loud until the restaurant closed around 11:30-midnight with lots of people going up and down the stairs past our door. Staff weren't rude, but we didn't find anyone particularly friendly either. This was a disappointing stay after the reviews that I'd read.
