Hotel Ivy Suites is situated atop the heart of historic former princely state of Bhopal and it's majestic sprawling Upper Lake. Perched high like an eagles nest in Shamla Hills, Ivy Suites offers the most breathtaking views of Lakeside nature, Sailing Club, Minarets crowning some of India's most famous mosques and Palaces and forts of Bhopal's Queens of past. Ivy Suites comes with it's own eclectic beginnings. Originally the home of Manju and Pramod Sharma, who artistically converted it into a personal boutique hotel, primarily to provide accommodation for jet setters and business associates coming to Bhopal on various projects. Our Hotel's name originated from our guests compliments of the abundant evergreen ivy creeper on east side. Everything comes together in the evenings as guests and friends alike gather after sunset and toast above the magical shimmering reflections of lights over Upper Lake.

Located in Shyamla Hills, on the upper lake in Bhopal Pros - nicely sized rooms, with a huge balcony - located within a gated community, so is secure - cozy rooms - within walking distance of Van Vihar National Park, Manav Sangrahalay and the Bhopal Boating club Cons - in house dining options are limited - long serving times are a dampener

I stayed many years ago, in 2015, I think. It was a wonderful experience. So good that it is featured in my book, 'Gateway to Gandamak'. The lounge with its view over the lake is stunning. The food is excellent, and the art work unique.

The feel is very homely. Definitely ask for room 101 - it has the best view The owner is absolutely welcoming The view from the living room is stunning Just one heads up - Breakfast is served a little late which is good if you are on holiday but if on work and leaving early - could pose a concern

Refused check in despite confirmed reservation via Agoda. I had booked the property through Agoda on 14 Nov, received confirmation and a note that they have informed the property. I was charged more than 5K. On the day of check in 19 Nov, I called the property to inform of late check in as we were stuck in traffic on the way back from Sanchi. Was met on the phone with a very unempathetic voice of a lady, she refused to having received a reservation. Refused that she was listed on Agoda. Her exact statement- even if you send me reservation confirmation I can’t do anything as I don’t have room neither do I have your reservation. I had to scramble to book another property whilst on the move.

Could there ever be a better location at Bhopal? I doubt. The picturesque property on Shamla Hill, overlooking the lake is definitely worth experiencing. The walls filled with beautiful paintings and huge aquariums, add to the elegance of the property. The 5 storied building is also home to the Sharma family, the owners. The rooms overlooking the huge water body are tastefully done. The breakfast was enjoyable- Fruits, fresh juice, cereals with milk, toast with condiments, eggs as you like and mouth watering aloo parathas. Can't complain. The dinner could have been a shade better. One of the ACs needed maintenance. Overall a nice experience. And before I forget, the wonderful Mrs. Sharma, the perfect hostess, is always around for a friendly chat.

Stayed here for 4 days/3 nights for a work-trip, and it was wonderful. The location is great - easily accessible from airport, tourist spots, markets, offices. The views from the lobby & rooms are fab - overlooking a lake. The rooms were comfortable, well furnished and had all basic amenities required. It is a quaint boutique/homestay run by Mr Pramod & Ms Manju, who stay there as well. They have maintained the property beautifully- lush green, clean, adorned with beautiful art pieces & paintings. The hosts are friendly, polite & knowledgeable. They can suggest you the best spots around for shopping, photography, nature walks. Infact, they were super courteous to take the guests around for an early morning walk. If you want privacy, you can sit back in your room, relax & enjoy the views. However, if you like conversations - just step out from your room to the lobby and you'll be in for superb company. Conversations with the hosts and fellow travelers indeed makes the evening vibrant & lively. It is infact one of the best parts about this place! There's no room service. But you can walk upto the kitchen area and ask for tea/coffee/lemonade/biscuits etc anytime. Suggestion, maybe they can introduce a vending machine with snacks. Everyone gathers at the dining area for meals, and dining is fun! Food is homely, menu is fixed. In case you have preferences, you can let them know in advance. For the days that I stayed there - we had alu Paratha, idli, Poha, muffins for breakfast; alongwith basics of eggs, cereals, juices, toast, fruits, jams etc. For dinner there's generally 2 veggies, dal, 1/2 non veg, salad, roti, rice, macaroni, dessert. The food was tasty on all days. The kitchen staff was polite. There are umbrellas, cycles, books available for guests. Most rooms are lake facing. I stayed in 101 and it was quite comfy! The staff would clean the room everyday after I left for office. Everything about this place is fab - the courteous hosts, the views, the location, the green and artistic corners. Recommended for business travelers, solo travelers, elongated city stays.

I had the most wonderful stay at Ivy Suites. The place is run by Manju and Pramod who are excellent hosts. The property is right by the edge of the lake and the views are blissful. The characteristic feature of this place is how green it is. There are beautifully exotic creepers growing all over the house and all outdoor spaces are covered with plants. The walls are adorned with stunning paintings, all made by their daughter - Tina, a professional artist. The food at Ivy Suites was fantastic. It was homely and light. I would definitely recommend anyone coming to Bhopal to stay here. It is ideally located, walking distance from the Van Vihar national park as well as the museums.

I was pleasantly surprised when I landed last evening at Ivy Suites. The name did not prepare me for the place it is. Lesson: do not judge a place by its name! Manju and Pramod, the wonderful hosts of this 10 room paradise, make you feel at home on arrival. The conversations are free flowing and you can enjoy a drink or two before moving to the dining table where a delicious spread awaits you. The rooms are spacious and have an old world charm. Paintings by their daughter Tina adorn the walls and the plants and books add to the charm. There is no intercom in the rooms, so be prepared to hop over to the front desk or kitchen if you need something. You may want to ask for a lake facing room in advance if staying for more than a day or two. There are no lifts or elevators, so do check this aspect while booking a room with a view. If you are coming from a metro, be prepared to slow down and face ‘disturbing thoughts’ of whether one should consider moving to the beautiful city of Bhopal and to this neighbourhood! Overall, a wonderful stay and hoping to back soon!

There is no doubt that the location of this place is excellent and it's got great views of the lake. However everything else seems to be falling apart. Rooms are not well maintained and hygiene is just about okay.
