Melbourne, Australia, Lake Pichola Hotel, Udaipur (Fantastic - Highly recommended) I stayed at this hotel with my family. After a long drive by coach from Jaipur to Udaipur the welcome we received at this hotel was fantastic. Each of my family members were garlanded with fresh red roses and given a chilled glass of lemon juice. For all the four children as well as the four adults, it was a very nice gesture. All the hotel staff were very friendly and ready to serve us anytime. They were literally just a phone call away. The rooms were clean, neat and comfortable. Only be aware that all the rooms have windows without glass and they all face towards the lake - so if you have little children be careful. The suite rooms are grand very spacious as well. The restaurant…
My exprience was awful, room service is horrible, basic house keeping is done only on request. the bathrooms are congested, needs urgent make over. In the room allotted to me, the hot water geyser was not working, inspite of me insisting for 3 days no body bothered to rectify it, only lip service was done. Even the AC failed one night, reported, but no response. Need to be careful we availing taxi service from the reception, please insist on work sheet before engaging. Overall my experience here was bad.
This hotel is excellent value if you go for one of the cheaper rooms. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable, even if looked as if it had seen slightly better days. There is an attractive dining room, with verandah right on the lake, and the food is fine. The main reason I would recommend the Lake Pichola is the location, which is fantastic and there are beautiful views of the lake palace from the roof terrace (luckily there was water this year).
The location of the hotel is great, the view of the city palace only meets misted because the lake is dry. The rooms are correct but the bathroom needs an urgent reform, is old and inconvinient. The service, especially the reception, is charming, nice, with their treatment compensate the lacks of this economic hotel. It is not a luxury but it is advisable. The breakfast is good, “a la carte”.
We found the hotel to be clean, comfortable, with friendly service. The rooms were decorated with artifacts, and the view ( had there been water in the lake, which there was NOT) would have been spectacular. The location was great as well for sightseeing and shopping.
