Great location but room for improvement
on Dec 14, 2017
We booked a balcony room on the 3rd floor and loved waking up and pulling the curtains back and lying in bed looking at the view of the lake. Other good features of the guesthouse was the big comfy bed and a good shower. The
Restaurant upstairs was pretty good too if you need a break from Indian food (which we did after nearly a month).
On the negative side, we felt that the staff didn't really offer good service. When we arrived, there was no welcome or checkin. We weren't even shown around the room. Someone was sent up to unlock our door but we had to work our how to get the hot water system going and had to plug the TV in. It wasn't until the second or third day that someone decided we needed to hand in our passports and do the full checkin. During our 5 day stay no one at any stage asked us if everything was okay or if we needed anything. Certainly no offer to clean the room or for fresh towels.
I would only recommend this guesthouse if you book a balcony room and are happy to be left alone. Just a bit of attention to customer service and this place could be really great.
Superb location with amazing view.

I've heard so many mixed reviews about Jheel Guest house that I was really apprehensive, but still decided to go for it. And it turned out to be the highlight of our Udaipur trip. The room with balcony in Jheel Guest house, apart from a balcony on the lake, has two full walls of windows facing the lake. Can't imagine anything better. The interior of the room was nice too, and the place is really clean. And the prices are unbeatable for the location. Even proper toiletries were given in the washroom, something i really didn't expect. Now the not so good part. There have been bad reviews about lack of room service, and that is absolutely true. But though, if you do ask the people downstairs for something, they do it for you. So if you stay here, don't expect hotel like treatment with staff at your service, but at the same time, do not hesitate to ask if you need something.
A wonderful experience

Jheel guest house was so comfortable and cozy for me. The view was phenomenal and the stay was really nice. he rooms were really comfortable and the best part was the view we had. We could see the entire LAKE PICHOLA and it was very majestic. To wake up in the morning and watching the sun rise, sitting in your balcony, sipping your cup of coffee and just enjoying the chirping of the birds and the peaceful water in front of you.
Small simple room with an amazing view.

If a room with a view of the lake is a priority, then this place is perfect. (Not all rooms have a lake view however.) The room was very small, but tastefully decorated and clean. The view is spectacular with a little balcony for our room to make the most of it. There is also a rooftop terrace for breakfast and snacks. ( Very good French toast.)
True Riverside view

Affordable with one of the only true riverside view rooms. The hotel is literally on the lake, so the rooms are literally overlooking to lake. Internet is a little spotty, but service is good. The cafe in the hotel is also good with trustworthy food
