My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights and the staff were helpful and the interior public area decor was really nice. The room itself was fine and decent value but the bathroom wasn't great in my opinion. They offered an expensive but enjoyable cooking class. Unfortunately I was a bit ill and couldn't fully appreciate it and I would... More

Upon checking out, we were demanded to pay for the full 4 nights which we disagree. We were finally forced to agree to pay the commission... More

We stayed here for all of our stay in Udaipur, entered Krishna Niwas by chance and found the staff welcoming. We've been for 5 nights, the rooms were comfortable for the price. Traveling off season we got a cheaper price. Loved the A/C, tv and of course the lake view, the place was clean, quiet and in great location! Only... More

We stayed four nights and found the rooms comfortable for the price. Good air conditioning, television with English films, clean, quiet and located right by the lake.

The Hotel Krishna Niwas was great. The location was perfect, behind the temple and steps from the lakefront. We had fantastic views of the lake from our bright rooms. The cooking class was also very good…. we’ve even been making some of the recipes since we have returned home.

The hotel is pretty good and clean. Nice location. Close to major tourist locations. Only thing is our room did not have air conditioning. Otherwise a good stay. A good choice if you just need a place to freshen up, sleep and dump your luggage. Staff was very helpful.
