The staff, the ambience, the people in the hotel were the only nice people we met in udaipur. I cannot lie the only reason our trip was nice because of the hotel. We were planning to switch hotels after 2 nights but after looking around and checking out other options around us we decided to stay in the hotel itself because none of the other premises looked as aesthetic and the staff was very geniune and reliable. The staff felt like family after our 5 day stay.. The owners are also very humble, down to earth and lovely to talk to. Special post mentions to all the three doggos and the birds keeping the place lively and morning's cheerful. The lakeside was properly sanitised and there was no odor whatsoever in the whole property including the lakeside as we had experienced that in some other places with the lakeside view. The washrooms were very clean coming from a person who cares too much about washroom's sanitization and the way they look.

I choose Lake Pichola hotel after reading lot of reviews here and on other sites. We stayed for a total of 3 nights during middle of August 2022. Overall stay was satisfactory. We choose lake facing room on 2nd floor and it was a pleasure just to gaze through the lake from the room balcony. Most of attractions like Bagre Ki Haveli, City Palace and jagmandir are at walking distance. They have two boats but both were not operational due to some local issues. It would have added the charm if boats were operational.

Breakfast is limited but good. We ordered room service and like Dal Makhni and Malai Kofta. Chicken tikka was stale. Unfortunately upre resturant was closed on all evenings due to heavy rainfall.

There is one swimming pool at the roof top but it is quite small but suitable for kids.

One advice I would like to give is regarding local transportation. Autos in Udaipur dont have meters and hence charge exhobritant prices from tourists. (Rs 200 for City Palace and Rs 100 for Bagre Ki Haveli from hotel !). Hence it is best to negotiate with few Autos before boarding one.

I stayed here for three nights while attending a hotel. The staff was attentive, very accommodating, and attentive. They went above and beyond to ensure we were well taken care of (bags delivered to room, room cleaned everyday, facilitated shuttles to the airport). Sometimes the communication was lacking but I think that could been due to the language barrier. I would recommend them

This was my 4th visit to Udaipur and I soo wanted to stay in a property on the Lake Pichola. I chose this property basis the amazing reviews on TA and it exceeded our expectations on most of the fronts. The most appealing points are the location, the view, the true heritage haveli feel and decor, the ever smiling outstanding staff and most of all the owners’ hospitable attitude towards each of the guests. We had one of their lake facing rooms and it was an absolute delight to spend our time in their palace and Gangaur ghat facing balcony. We loved each and every moment of our stay !!! The ambiance is calm, relaxing, beautiful, clean. The rooftop restaurant has a priceless night view and the food was also delectable.
I know the hotel is under scheduled renovation right now .. I’m sure it will come out even finer than what it already is. Thank you team Lake Pichola

We booked lake facing room and was guaranteed lake facing room with balcony as per phone call discussion with reception person. After reaching we were given room on second floor with lake view but no balcony. After asking for balcony room the reception girl named shruti said us all balcony rooms on first floor are full. This is so unfair. Since I came to enjoy did not want to waste time in arguing. Also room was very small compared to price we payed. Room service is slow. I called for bath gel and got nearly after 3hrs. Breakfast was below average. Only the location of hotel is good.

I stayed at Hotel Janak Vilas, with my wife, during 27th feb.- 03rd march,21. The worlds at the entrance and inside the hotel are altogether different...seems like magical transformation. The decor is appealing, aesthetic & the management's hard efforts to give the hotel a heritage and royal look are clearly visible. Front desk executive Ms Hansa's warm welcome and nice hospitality will remain as a beautiful memory to cherish. All staff members were found to be courteous and hard working...including two restaurant staff Sangeeta and Geeta as a special mention. Roof top restaurant, which provided mesmerising views and delicious food, & Bar are like cherry on the cake. Location of the hotel is too quite ideal.

Me and my family had wonderful stay at Lake Pichola hotel. Initially, some issue happened during room allocation, however hotel staff was very generous and kind to accept the mistake and immediately given a complimentary upgrade to higher category room. I really like the approach of hotel to take care of situation during issue. Staff at reception, restaurant and room service are very courteous, humble and they remain up to toe to take care of customer's need. Wow factor is location of hotel, their evening sunset boat ride, view from lake view room, soothing traditional live flute during breakfast, traditional theme of hotel and dinner with live traditional music at lake side Upre restaurant. If you are a lake lover and happen to be in Udaipur then this is one of the best choices for your family stay in Udaipur.

Note: This is not a resort kind of property but if you are a palace, lake and culture lover then this is the best place for your stay. You will have a different experience and will feel like staying in palace. Good heritage property.

Loved the location & the ambience of this hotel but definetly do not try & reach it by car as streets are so narrow & you will waste so much time so organise ahead to be collected by hotel or grab a tuktuk.
Staff at front desk & cleaning staff were very attentive & friendly although the staff at the restaurant we found were the least friendly we'd experinced so far throughout our tour of Rajasthan. Rooms were clean but small incomparison to others we'd stayed however bed was very comfortable. Power point sockets need replacing. Private balony off room was rather dirty yet view was spectacular even from inside the room. Breakfast choice was good & was nice to have a coffee machine rather than instant coffee. Really enjoyed our stay & would definetly recommend & would definetly return.

I had booked the hotel for 2 days and it was the most beautiful hotel ever. I have listed all pros and cons below

Pros:
1.Superb location, right on Lake Pichola
2.Rooms with lake view are to die for. You can sit the entire day watching lake and birds
3.Rooms are good with all basic amenities
4.They have complimentary richshaw service to take you to nearest parking since cars can't reach the hotel directly. (Autos ask for Rs 100 for every ride)
5.Food was great, seating spaces were amazing too
6.Price is very economical and affordable
7.Rooftop restaurant is unbelievable- service by Mr Keshu Patel was impressive. Loved how he recognised us next day and took great care of us!!!
8.Their boat ride is way better and cheaper than that of City palace for sunset view

Cons:
1.Bathrooms have gone outdated and should be replaced/repaired

Alll in all loved the place, thoroughly enjoyed and would want to come back here!!! Please visit without any second thoughts!!!!!
