“Wonderful welcoming family hotel”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

I have stayed two weeks at Krishna Niwas and found it to be wonderully welcoming. All the staff are friendly, helpful, and make you feel one of the family. Digvijay and Rakesh are really helpful with any ideas about Udaipur, onward travel etc. Sushma gives cooking classes where you get to eat the fabulous food, and Jairaj is an arist who has beautifuly decorated all the rooms. Even Lalit of the housekeeping staff is ever friendly an ready to do anything needed.

The six rooms in the front have partial lake views, but at a much lower price than hotels right on the lakefront. The hotel is also convenient to tourist sites like the City Palace, Jagdish Mandir, and the lake. Also, you can have massage in the room!

Room Tip: Rooms 105 and 106 are quiet and have great views.

I highly recommend Krishna Niwas as a place to stay in Udaipur. Centrally located, with friendly, smiling staff and clean luxurious rooms. Reasonable prices (I stayed in the shoulder season - February - June) make this little gem hard to beat. Room 106 is the pick of the lot, with a perfect view onto the lake, it was simply divine.

Room Tip: Room 106 has the best view of the lake!

The service here is very good. From shushma's cooking class and breakfasts, to the friendly front desk staff--everyone was helpful and genuinely wanted us to enjoy our stay. We stayed in both lake view and non-lake view rooms. While the later was cheaper and maybe larger, we definitely preferred the sunny lakeview rooms. The room itself was nothing spectacular, but it was clean and light, and the mattress was very comfortable. It has a really nice rooftop for breakfasts, too.

I loved this place!!! The staff (particularly Jairaj and Shushma) are absolutely delightful, and the rooms are beautiful yet simple. The attached art shop is also great, and breakfast is delicious (ask Shushma for stuffed paratha with curd!!!). Location is great too. The only drawbacks are the stairs which I dreaded climbing, and a bit of hardsell on the gift shop. But these were only minor details - this place deserves your rupees! And while you're there, take a cooking class with Shushma - it was money well spent!!

Room Tip: If you want to photograph the lake at sunrise, ask for room 105 - that way, you'll only have to...
