“A Magic Place!”
Reviewed 19 May 2012

Why would you stay anywhere else in Udaipur? It's perfect: location, room comfort, rooftop restaurant with unforgettable views... etc.
The staff were very friendly on arrival and any time we interacted with them. Nothing was too much trouble.
We requested a lake-view room, and the first one we were shown was very dark with only a small window, so we weren't very impressed. When we asked to be shown another room we had to wait for the manager to arrive before they could tell us what was available, and it was a long wait. However, when he finally came there was no problem: he showed us the room next door, which had three large windows overlooking the lake and was absolutely beautiful so in the end we were very happy with the accommodation.
The bathroom was reasonably clean and although not large was quite OK. The bed was very comfortable and the room overlooked the washing ghats, so there was always plenty to see from our window.
As in most Indian hotels we stayed, breakfast was included, and this was quite good, with a reasonable choice of western and Indian food on offer. Meals on the rooftop, especially breakfast, were memorable with the million dollar view.
The management and staff were eager to please and very helpful at all times, and we couldn't think of a nicer place to stay in Udaipur. We stayed for three nights and were very happy with this hotel. Although a bit more expensive than some places we stayed, this is an expensive city and we thought it excellent value for money.

I was very pleased to be able to book, because I'd read so many positive reports of Kankarwa Haveli. I loved the place overall - the feeling of being hidden away yet in the heart of things, the pretty inner courtyard, the stunning panoramic view over the lake to the palaces - this was from the rooftop restaurant. I thought the food was good value and liked the service - quiet, but efficient. It's good if you can have a proper conversation with a member of the family which owns and runs the place, because they have so much knowledge of the area and its history. They were helpful when asked but never intrusive. My room was less attractive than those described in other reviews - it had neither the view nor the traditional furnishings! - but that was because I booked late, and it was perfectly adequate. No doubt it was also proportionately cheaper! I'd go again, but will plan ahead and make sure I get one of the lake-facing rooms...

Room Tip: Definitely book ahead, so you can choose a room with a view!

We stayed here for two nights, it was pricey, but for a couple in the middle of a hectic three week tour of India, it was a nice break and relaxing place.

We paid extra for a suite with a private balcony overlooking the lake, gorgeous room with traditional decorations, bathroom was huge and clean, everything was working and still could get a wifi signal inside which was a plus (they only said lobby). But for the price being paid I would expect them to shell out the extra money for a few more boxes to make wifi hotel-wide.

Only thing that lowers it one on the rating is the staff at the restaurant was not the best, food was slow and not on par compared to the rest of what the hotel offers. Breakfast was included-but it's only one, which is great if you are alone, frustrating if a couple. For what I paid it wouldn't be that much more cost to provide two. Great view of the lake and city though.

I would stay again, just go out to eat.

I stayed at the Kankarwa last November for 2 nights. My room (at the top right hand side of the first flight of steps) was really lovely with a huge window facing out onto the water with a beautiful view. I was with a group so was able to get into quite a few rooms all of which were individual and all the ones I saw lovely. The owner and his staff are all extremely friendly and it's in a good location to get around everywhere. The autorickshaw guys just outside the Haveli were very friendly and helpful. Great restaurants nearby and a front seat view of local indian life at the ghat. I would highly recommend a stay here and and hoping to return again one day.

recently stayed here for one nite. had a room facing the lake on the second floor-room was nice, big size bed for two, bathroom had plenty of hot water and was clean- local woman do laundry under your window in mornings, so some noise is there, nice touch and good for pictures.restaurant was nothing much,had to press the issue upon arriving, they had nothing set up and were at ease when asked to be fed- once they got started food was satisfactory-the location of hotel is excellent, end of small alley, so no cars, and you need a small car to get in.everything is in walking distance- staff is very laid back- need to nego for room deals

Room Tip: ask for room facing the lake
