The approach to Jagat Niwas is through a warren of streets in the old area of Udaipur -- very atmospheric and lively. They have only a few lake facing rooms and these are definately worth asking for even though the hotel doesn't guarantee anything at the time of booking. We were lucky!
The room was nice and bathroom clean and well equipped but it lacked ventilation apart from one small exhaust fan. Having said that, converting an ancient building into a modern hotel with many rooms all with en suite bathrooms must have been a real challenge and at Jagat Niwas they have managed to do this without compromising the integrity of the structure for the most part.
Given the great location this could have been a really classy boutique hotel with fewer rooms and more attention to detail. But then this is India where the concept of 'less is more' doesn't exist. Amed Haveli across the water will be our hotel of choice the next time we visit Udaipur. We went there for dinner, had a look at the rooms and they were lovely.
