I’m so grateful to have discovered Chandra Niwas before traveling to India! As a solo female traveler, I felt so much more comfortable after chatting with Samvit online while planning my trip, he answered all of my questions leading up my arrival, picked me up from the airport, and has been showing me an amazing time around the city of...

Namaskaaar :) One of the foremost things that I must lay emphasis on before I proceed with my review about Chandra Niwas Home-stay is the warm Namaskaar one is greeted with as soon as you meet the host, Samvit. This gesture truly welcomes you and makes you comfortable immediately. So, here goes! The very first thing I noticed about Chandra...

We stayed at Chandra Niwas for 10 days and it was a wonderful stay. From the rooms, to the facilities, the family, the atmosphere and mainly its host Samvit, Chandra Niwas is one of these rare and wonderful places that make you feel home.

Chandra Niwas is for those who wish to see the side of India away from the large cities, away from the crowds, away from the pollution. It is for those who want to fall in love with India, albeit for the first time or the fifth. For me, traveling is about seeing the world but it is mainly about learning...

Chandra Niwas is something else! and what makes it different from the rest is it host, Samvit. His unmissable energy and enthusiasm is fetching. A short rickshaw ride to the lakes and main sights of Udaipur, so not in the city centre but Samvit will show you an entire different side of the city, that makes it so much more...

I lived in Udaipur for 4 months and I am glad I chose Chandra Niwas. There are several reasons for this: 1. The homestay setting allows you to socialise and interact with other travellers in an intimate setting over meals and in the common areas, while the rooms provide you with all the privacy you need (select the rooms on...

I'm so glad I "stumbled" upon Chandra Niwas on trip advisor ;) Where to begin? The property itself is beautiful, with a flower garden and roof top patio perfect for sunset gazing or morning yoga.

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
