On a recent family trip to Udaipur, we booked 2 nights at Shiv Niwas and 2 nights at Oberoi Udaivillas. We specifically booked Shiv Niwas as we wanted to stay in the Palace complex for 1/2 our stay.....and booked about 5 months in advance. 48 hours before our arrival we rec'd an e-mail that "due to an overbooking situation" we were to be moved to Jag-Mandir Island hotel (another hotel in Shiv Niwas group) but would be given suites as compensation. All-in-all, it was a very disappointing situation. We did spend some time at the Shiv Niwas pool, and the place was a ghost town. There was no evidence of a single other guest in the property....so the "overbooking situation" was very suspicious. As for the Jag-Mandir, I have posted a review there as well (summary: DO NOT STAY there)
