Just Lovely !

We stayed at Babu's lovely Guest House over the Diwali period and had such a wonderful stay. Hisbiscus was everything we had hoped for - small, friendly and a family feel of the authentic India.
The rooms were spacious and comfortable, with good fans+aircon and decorated in a pleasing Rajasthani style - we loved the window seats !
The staff were very friendly, welcoming, extrememly helpful and such nice people. Highlight was always the evening dinner on the roof terrace, with views towards the lake and simply wonderful food freshly cooked and served to please !
The guest house is located in a local neighborhood but well located for all the main tourist sites in Udaipur and there is a fantastic sunset point near the Amet Haveli within a few minutes walk.
And Oscar the Great Dane was always around to lift any tired spirits.
Our few days at the Hisbiscus were memorable and we look forward to the day when we can return for a longer stay and chill out at this Udaipur oasis !
Our thanks and love to everyone at Hisbiscus.

I loved staying here- the staff, location and were excellent!
The location is absolutely IDEAL. It is in a real, genuine neighbourhood (Muslim) mixed with a couple lux hotels but super close to everything - less than 15 min walk to City Palace and 1 minute to lakefront and views to Taj Lake Palace, I would not want to stay any closer to City Palace or anywhere else for that matter.
The staff was always 100% helpful, friendly and accommodating - before long they were friends!
They always went above and beyond. I don't think they ever said 'no' / 'cant' to any request. They made the place extra special.
The building is boho chic and very charming and quaint ,simple & nice. It felt like an oasis. The firm , simple beds were perfect for my bad back :) There is a resident Great Dane which adds to the hominess.
I was a 100% happy and if back in Udaipur I will be there without a second thought - in fact this place "made" my trip to Udaipur - the prospect of staying there again would itself bring me back to Udaipur and might draw me back.

Middle hotel with not friendly staff

We pay a lot and the quality was poor. The room was clean but the staff was not friendly. They made problems because we would like to pay by creadit card. They told us that they have to charge more (in other places that we stay this didn't happened) so at the end we pay in cash. The breakfast was realy very very poor and available only from 8 a.m. (before the cook is not there). I thing that for the same price or also less you can find better accomodations.
Friendly attentive staff

Enjoyable restful stay. Helpful friendly staff. Relaxing peaceful garden . Walking distance of major attractions . Authentic Rajasthan décor. Had a great time sitting on the roof terrace eating delicious freshly cooked food. Aloo gobi and brinjal masala our particular favorites.
