Well, its late in the day but never too late. I stayed at Chandra Niwas in Jul 2014. It was a wonderful experience to say the least, all thanks to the warm-hearted hosts who go all out to make sure that you are made comfortable throughout. Definitely deserves a big thumbs up and surely you must make it a point...

Samvit (the owner) offers all you could ask for from a homestay - and then some. We immediately felt like we came home after having our welcome Chai with Samvit. The rooms are cozy and clean, and Samvit has a knack for sprinkling his place with beautiful Indian antiques. Additionally we had some very good home-cooked meals and interesting conversations...

I really had an awesome stay at Chandra Niwas. The host took really good care of us showing us all the good places to go and even personally drove us to some himself. Helped me book a ticket back to Delhi and took me to the bus station that was very remote. Thank you for a great stay

This home stay experience was the nicest break within my India trip which sometimes can become a little overwhelming and exhausting. Samvit and his family were the most friendliest hosts and made us feel at home all the time. Each day we had a nice Indian breakfast and the best Masala chai. The room was very neat and clean and...

Let me start by saying that I have been lucky enough to travel quite extensively for the short time I have been on the planet, and in all honesty, staying at Chandra Niwas has been the best experience I have had so far. The house is situated in a non-touristy part of Udaipur, with close links to the city center...

Chandra Niwas is so much more than an accommodation option, everyday during my stay there I got to see a different side of India and I felt truly happy and lucky...I didn't just feel like another tourist, I really felt that I got to experience India.

My partner Myia and I stayed for several days longer than anticipated in Samvit's home. As a host, Samvit has a seemingly inexhaustible supply of energy, and is eager to share his love for all the great things Udaipur can offer a traveler, as well as offer his counsel on the parts that can be a bit more challenging! You'll...

We stayed at Chandra Niwas for 2 nights and truly enjoyed our stay even though it was way too short. The guest house is located in a rather quiet area of Udaipur, a hidden treasure perfect for escaping the sometimes overwhelming traffic and noise.

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
