“I wish I had found this place earlier!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

I have been to Udaipur several times and stayed in various places - I wish I had found this guest-house earlier. It is an oasis of quiet and tranquility in the shadow of the posh and expensive 'Lila' hotel on the west of the town (but Lila is far beyond my budget!).

The rooms are spacious, cool, and tastefully decorated (in what i suppose is traditional Rajasthani style). They are immaculately clean. There is no room service, but there is an excellent small restaurant - we ate at a table in the delightful garden at the rear.

Staff speak good English, and are courteous and friendly. In this price category this place is impossible to beat.

Hibiscus is a beautifully kept house with lovely clean rooms and a fabulous rooftop with a view of the lake. The area around is nice and quiet which made for a great nights sleep. The staff were lovely also - we were on our honeymoon and when we arrived they presented us with flowers and rose petals on the bed! It was a wonderful welcome and such a thoughtful gesture. Oscar the friendly Great Dane is the icing on the cake!

We found Hibiscus a delightful spotlessly clean homestay/small guest house. The rooms are large, light and airy. It is about 15minutes walk to the City Palace but is a quiet peaceful retreat after a busy day.
We ate in the restaurant every evening as the food was so good and the views from the rooftop restaurant over the lake were wonderful.
Babu and his staff were so very friendly and helpful and happy to arrange taxis/ buses etc.I would thoroughly recommend Hibiscus and it's restaurant.

After a week of staying in very expensive hotels in Delhi, Varanasi, Agra and Jaipur through a package tour, I ventured out on my own for three days in Udaipur. The Hibiscus Guest House was a welcome change from the 5-stars and, in fact, the best place I stayed in my trip to Rajasthan. The location and views of the lake were superb, the room was beautifully decorated and spacious with a wonderful window seat overlooking the garden. Babu, Carole and Oscar (the great dane) were awesome hosts, the free wifi was a gift (after being charged in previous hotels), the bottle of Indian wine was a treat, and the access to the old town was perfect. Babu's nephew was a great guide and helped me to find the perfect miniature painting of Udaipur to take home as a reminder of this gem of a place.

Room Tip: The room with the window box framing the garden was perfect, quiet and calming.

A great place to stay. I enjoyed it here very much. From the roof top you have a great view on the lake. the rooms are decorated very nicely. The staff is very helpful. You get a very good value for your money. Babo and Carol will help with whatever question you have. I highly recommend this place.
