This hotel is situated in main area from where City Palace, Gangaur Ghat & Boagore Ki Haveli are quite near. You can visit those places by walk. This Hotel has three types of rooms. It has best Roof-top swimming pool & restaurant with awesome view of Lake Pichola. I have booked this hotel just for the view but it was perfect at all.

Note : This hotel is situated in busy area. Cabs/big vehicles cant go to the hotel as you have to pass through narrow-busy streets. There are many slops in this area.

2. Gangaur Ghat

We checked-in at hotel at 12 p.m. so we had half day to roam around. So we went to Gangaur Ghat. It was on walkable distance from our hotel. Best time to visit here is sunset. You can have beautiful clicks with flying pigeons & reflection of city in the water of Lake Pichola.

This was our last place to visit in our trip. We have visited on day 3 in the evening. This is best for sunset time. We have rented two wheeler for this place (INR 300/day). It has scary though beautiful road on the hill to reach. You can see whole city from one side and Aravalli range from another side. Sunset from here is the main attraction.

So this was all about my weekend trip of Udaipur. The best time to visit Udaipur is winter and monsoon though we have visited in summer but environment was like monsoon. It rained at 2 nights and last night was just amazing. You can see!
