Nice Location, Super helpful Staff, Average Breakfast & Amenities
on Jan 1, 2019
We stayed here for 2 nights in the month of December. The rooms were quite spacious and the bathroom too was huge. Although, the bathroom was stinking most of the time.
The breakfast spread consisted of moreover same things everyday. The breakfast was very average.
The staff was super super helpful though. We wanted to courier something to a nearby place and they helped us with everything for that. We asked them for hot water other than their usual timings and they did it in no time.
The food here is horrible though. We ordered for room service and both the tea and the food was horrible. We literally could not eat it at all.
Overall, great location, good rooms, stinky bathrooms, awesome staff and horrible food!
Udaipur - Shree Vilas Orchid
on Dec 29, 2018
Shree Vilas Orchid is near lake Pichola in Udaipur. It takes around 40 mins to reach the venue from airport. One thing you might need to keep in mind that cars wont go till the location as the road is too narrow for an auto to pass. Cabs will drop you in a point 10 mins from hotel. This is the only challenge i faced. Autos will charge 100 bucks knowing this is the only commuting option to Shree Vilas specially when you have luggage with you. Else you can opt to walk till the circle. Do not forget to give a buzz to the hotel once you land.
Rooms are nice and lake facing with cultural authenticity imbibed with essential modern amenities. You will get TV and a mini fridge in room (which is not filled) with neat and clean toilet. Beds are nice and comfy. To give it a natural feeling the roofs are like tents and you might feel sounds of squirrels walking at night. What you might to check is the window shades which are roll overs and sometimes they don't properly close and does not provide privacy to couples or families visiting the place. Rooms are non smoking. They have a well maintained pool which is cleaned everyday.
Food is worth trying and specially the platters. Its on a spicy side so be careful but definitely tasty. Service closes by 9.30 PM and they are reluctant to provide any food after that even though you reach late. So word of caution to keep reception informed if you are reaching late. Service wise I found it average as they tend to keep the basic toothpaste in place and had to walk to reception for the same and also that reminds me that telephone does not work in few rooms to service (wasn't for my room as i had to walk to reception every time to request something).
Ambiance is superb and you will not regret even at night or daytime. If you are an early riser, you will see the beauty of Lake Pichola from your room. Breakfast is served outside as buffet next to lake. It was a beautiful experience from view perspective. However the spread is limited. Food is average and specially if you travelling from south india, do not try the idli and sambar, as it was not great at all.
If you are a photography enthusiast, take the opportunity to talk an evening walk and take some photos of the lake at night. However you will miss it if you reach after 9 or 9.30 PM as most of lights are off around the lake.
Overall a good and serene place to stay for a day and enjoy the view. It is a good place to relax and spend a day with family. However, I would suggest not to go for airport transport as it will be costly for you. Ola and Uber is available which will drop you to nearby circle.
Tired, Old, Dysfunctioning Hotel in Nice Location
on Dec 28, 2018
This was the very worst hotel we stayed in as we travelled around Rajasthan. The Good? It was a nice location by Lake Pichola. The Bad and the Ugly? Everything else. Start with the non-functioning heat, no hot water, no internet, plumbing that didn't work, worn out uncomfortable beds, worn out sheets. This could be a nice hotel, but it is NOT. Don't stay here until they renovate.
Udaipur, city of Lakes
on Oct 15, 2018
We had very comfortable 2 nights stay in Hotel Shree Vilas Orchid. The location of hotel is awesome, just besides Lake Pichola...although approach roads to hotel are very narrow, your car cannot reach and has to be parked around 1 km away...but the hotel provides shuttle services. The hotel staff is very friendly and supportive. We had a pet dog with us and it was a pleasant stay for him as well. Hotel is pet friendly. The food quality and quantity is very good. Cleanliness and maintenance of the property is excellent. Swimming pool is cleaned everyday, garden and lawns are well maintained. Rooms are big, spacious and well maintained. Special thanks to Mr Ritesh Sharma...front dest, he was very cooperative and supportive in guiding us to the hotel through the Udaipur City and also in arranging for local site seeing.
In nut shell, this property is worth the value charged...
