Outstanding Stay at Raj Niwas Hotel
on Jan 17, 2020
What first prompted me to book our two rooms at Raj Niwas for my family of five was the decor of the rooms depicted in the pictures & the great reviews. Raj Niwas was the perfect place for our 4 nights in Udaipur for many reasons but the most important one is the quality attention and care that we received from the resident caretaker Jassu. Jassu was there for our every need from arranging horseback riding, dinner reservations, a tuk tuk tour of the city, directions and transportation. He kept our rooms immaculately clean and stocked with amenities as well as prepared delicious breakfast every morning on the roof top deck. He literally made our time in Udaipur a special one.
Raj Niwas is a small boutique hotel with 3 rooms, each large & colorfully decorated with huge windows. We stayed in the two queen rooms & the beds were massive! The 3 rooms are stacked on top of one another & connected by a staircase. The King Suite is the top room with its own private balcony looking out onto the lake. If the King Suite is available, I suggest booking it because of the private balcony. However, we were more than pleased with our two queen rooms. The rooms are really light & inviting when the curtains are open.
The location of Raj Niwas is great! You can walk to the City Palace, the Jagat Hindu Temple, the traditional dance show & boat rides on the lake.
I highly recommend staying at the Raj Niwas. You will not be disappointed with the wonderful care Jassu provides & your accommodations.

Simple and clean accommodation at Lal ghat udaipur. Best part is the third floor room with private balcony . Balcony overlooks Lake Pichola . You have Jassu to help and is just phone call away. Walking distance to all attractions in old city.

Five of us stayed at this boutique guest house in March. The hotel has only 3 rooms, one on each floor. The top floor has an amazing balcony and view over the lake. The location is great- right on the lake and walking distance to all sights, shopping and restaurants.
The rooms are spacious, clean and a beautiful decor. The biggest asset to this place was Jassu, - the manager of the guest house. He was so accommodating and helpful. It made our stay extra special.
Gorgeous room with a great view

Upsides: As many other reviewers have mentioned, the King Suite is absolutely gorgeous and great value for money. The bed was clean and very comfortable. The colored glass, the panoramic views, the balcony, etc made this room an amazing place to stay. My boyfriend and I actually weren't feeling 100% during our stay in Udaipur and spent a lot of our time there just sitting on the balcony and watching the boats. We still had a great time!
Staff seemed to just be one guy, so he wasn't always easy to find, but was really great for the most part. He helped us arrange travel to the airport.
Downsides: We had no complaints at all about the room, but be aware that you need to pay cash (no credit cards accepted) and that it's a steep walk to the City Palace.
Something to note: there is, oddly enough, a bathtub on the balcony. This would have been sort of cool if it was an actual hot tub, but the water pressure was pretty low and it wasn't super clean, since there's no cover. It's also very easy to see into the balcony from neighboring rooftop restaurants, so I wouldn't have felt comfortable being out there in a bathing suit. Not a negative for us, just something to note in case you see it in photos and were booking on the basis of this place having a "hot tub".

A lovely stately hotel in a great location. Our room was bright, spacious and clean, with stained glass, huge bed, and very good bathroom. Views over the lake were stunning, especially from the breakfast terrace and pool areas. Helpful and pleasant staff were the icing on the cake.
