“disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

In comparison to similarly priced and located hotels this one was disappointing. Great views & terrific location but poor food and a customer-is-wrong denial of small concerns (just leave the water running and it will warm up) instead of an apology or explanation (broken system, no power, whatever) which would have been fine

We stayed here for two nights over Christmas 2011. In our four weeks in India, this was by far, the best hotel we stayed in. A family run hotel and the father and son team could not have been more welcoming and indeed helpful. Sit out on the terrace, take in the view while sipping a cool beer or indeed nibbling on a wonderful veg. thali and you will wish that you had booked a longer stay. Cannot recommend this place enough as it made such a wonderful change from the hands-out, expensive and chaotic service, we experienced at other hotels in India.

Room Tip: When booking, request a room with a "lakeside view" on the upper floors.

The rooms at this haveli are very nice indeed. My only complaint was the noise. I had a lakeside room, and the noise that comes up from the courtyard from the management and other guests can be a trifle hard to take. A great location though and good value.

Excellent location by Lake Pichola and within very easy walking distance of the City Palace.

A variety of rooms, all beautifully decorated and well maintained. Mine was gorgeous, (and very big!), with a huge bay window allowing me to admire the splendid view from the comfort of an armchair - brilliant even on slightly chilly winter mornings.

Nice rooftop restaurant, albeit with somewhat irregular service. Great thali in the evening - they serve what the family eats. Breakfast sadly not worth getting up for.

They organise cars for trips outside Udaipur, which is very useful.

The location of the Kankarwa Haveli is just perfect: on the water front, at the end of a side-street with many shops. This means that from the hotel you can enjoy a magnificient view on Lake Pichola and on the city, that you do not have the noise and chaos of traffic and are right in the middle of the shops the moment you walk out of the front door. Also the City Palace is at just a couple of minutes walking distance.
The manager and his wife (at least I presume that the lady in charge of the kitchen is the manager's wife) are extremely charming and speak excellent English.
Also the rest of the staff is very nice and helpful.
The rooms are rather spartan, but clean and quite spacious and have a nice personal touch.
The roof top terrace is a wonderful place to start your day with breakfast and end it watching the sun set over the lake and surrounding hills.
