A budget hotel which made us feel comfortable as during a stay in a five-star hotel! Clean rooms equipped with all facilities you need, welcoming staff and a good cook. Visiting local projects supported by the hotel owner enriched our stay in India. Highly recommended not only as a hotel but also as a place to meet great people !...

We were really happy with the nice rooms, great food and personal touch of this place. We visited the after-school-schools with Samvit. Really great guy with a true Vision. This is much much more than a hotel, and also a great place for volunteering and connecting to positive projects in the region. Thanks for having us!!!

Great place to stay out of the main city and enjoy real local living. Enjoying chai and learning from Samvit was a highlight and of course the dog Julie. Thank you to Deepak and Lala too for always being on hand to help with anything.

If you are in Udaipur, Chandra Niwas is a must-stay. We had no complaints at all: the rooms were simple but clean and beautiful, the area was quiet, the breakfasts Lala made for us were a perfect start to the day. This homestay is unique for several reasons. First, Samvit is a very deep thinker and very knowledgable. You will...

The room in which I was staying was spacious and tastefully done. Wifi has a great speed. The host really cares for you. Deepak is an amazing guy. Samvit is doing great work with his ngo. He also has an elaborate collection of antiques and the good thing is few of them are on sale. I would definitely recommend this...

Great homestay with big, nicely decorated rooms. I came back here after 4 years and have become good friends with Samvit who is a great host and runs a great non-profit as well. The house is in a quiet neighborhood outside of the tourist area, but is an easy cab or uber ride away. The food offered at the house...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ehi-Passika "come and experience" Buddha used to use this phrase when explorers used to ask about the beauty of his teaching. We are using this to welcome you all to come and experience our humble hospitality. Chandra Niwas is a simple homestay accommodation with basic rooms and bathroom fittings. It is our house which has been converted into a homestay for those who are interested in staying in the non touristy area. Most of all it is a place for socially responsible travelers and for those who are interested in getting to know our rural education initiatives. Located in a peaceful non-touristy neighborhood, Chandra Niwas provides guests with a unique opportunity to experience real Indian life and culture. This is not your average impersonal, commercial hotel in the middle of the touristy area. This is a Homestay into which you will be warmly welcomed and given personal attention to ensure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. We welcome those guests with an interest in exploring the local community and a desire to escape the hassles and touts that plague touristy areas. Part of the revenue generated from the Homestay is invested in a grassroots non-profit organization, providing education to rural youth. In all our rooms you will find wall-hangings and bed covers made by local village artists. We have many other local arts and crafts on display in the communal area, which guests may purchase if they wish. In addition, all of our staff are employed from local villages and trained for future employment in the hospitality industry. Most rooms have WiFi, and all rooms have en-suite bathrooms with 24 hours hot water. Breakfast is served in a lovely dining area where free internet access and WiFi is available. You may also eat on the roof-top, overlooking the organic vegetable garden, and home-cooked lunches and dinners are available upon request. We also have a small library created by past travelers, including travel books, novels, and DVDs. Your hosts, Dr. Samvit Audichya and his hospitable family will personally assist you in planning your days in Udaipur, depending on your interests and length of stay. The hosts will also gladly take care of your transport needs and help you with onward travel arrangements (all at no extra cost). We genuinely enjoy helping our guests! We are a ten minute drive from the city center (4 kms) and walking distance to many stores, restaurants and a pharmacy.During your stay at Chandra Niwas you will have the opportunity to see Udaipur not just through the eyes of a tourist, but through the eyes of a local. Chandra Niwas Homestay is best suited for mid budget travelers who wish to stay away from the touristy old town and wishes to experience the true Indian Home experience. Dr. Audichya has been connected with travel, hospitality, business and social work for the last six years and is now connecting them both. Chandra Niwas welcomes the guests to visit our village development projects. ... more   less
