Palace with Royal Ambience.. An Excellent place to Relax...

Posted 17 Jun, 2013

I had visited with my family in the month of June ( not a good time to visit as the environment is quite hot… most suitable time will be between October to Feb.). I had my stay at Hotel Shiv Nivas Palace which is in the City Palace Complex of Udaypur. Its managed by HRH Group, who is maintaining this palace converted in to Hotel. It s just 5-7 min drive from the railway station. Just by entering into the main entrance you get the royal feel of palace. It has very nice parking facility and security on their toe to help you. The reception hall is quite spacious and gives you the glimpse of what you can expect in the hotel. There are two types of rooms available 1) normal room (though its not as normal as the name suggests) and 2) Suite. Both rooms have initial gallery through which you can enter into your room (and both are under your control, you can close the gallery door and can keep the room door open for some time with all the privacy you require.) The galleries in the rooms have relaxing chairs and coffee table so that even you can have your morning tea over there. The suite has quite a big gallery and those galleries are facing toward Pichola Lake so you get wonderful view of lake and in the night its even more beautiful. The breeze coming from the lake side is a real joy as the suites are at much height. You will find many locations of the complex where many film have been shooted .. even some part of the recent one Yeh Jawani Hai Dewanee had been shooted in and around the complex where you can freely roam. Entering the rooms you can have a look at big comfortable bed, TV, mini fridge, tea/coffe maker, wardrobe and everything you can expect at home. The beds are quite comfortable. They have taken care of all the amenities and utility thing you may require with utmost details. You only need your clothes and shoes to stay in that hotel. The washrooms are quite spacious.almost of a size of room in other small hotels, with bathrobes, towels, napkins and bathtub. The supplies in the washroom are also of excellent quality. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The housekeeping was also up to the expectation. Cleaning was done twice a day. The hotel offers suite with Continental breakfast and dinner/Lunch with the stay. The food is exquisite and I think one will not find such quality in whole Udaypur. The hotel has wi-fi & pool . As its within the City Palace Complex all the point of interests such as Fatehsagar Lake, Pichola Lake, Crystal Gallery, Market are nearby. Its really nice place to relax. The room charges can be bargained.. atleast when its off-peak season.. but trust me you wont regret for paying bit high once you have stayed there for couple of days..

Good experience

Posted 30 Aug, 2012

This place is just amazing. The entrance is royal with king-size doors of the palace. You can still feel the palace which is quite untouched . Its just 5 minutes drive from the railway station. The view from room is lake palace , jag mandir and lake pichola. Very refreshing. The food is just awesome. They offer you almost everything Indian and continental. Rajasthan is well known for hospitality and Shiv Niwas is a great example. The hotel has a beautiful pool with great landscaping. They also have a billiards and squash room. The hotel also provides golf cart to visit the city palace which is walking distance from here. The rooms are big and well maintained. they have individual wifi in each room. It is a life time experience to have a feel of royalty. We had dinner at Jag mandir, which is again beautiful. Overall a wonderful experience.

Mesmerising view with best ambience

Posted 8 Oct, 2015

This hotel is by far the best attraction in the city as it gives beautiful view of Lake Pichola. The hotel is not that much expensive but gives all the facilities and amenities which makes the stay worth here. Staff, food, rooms are all very much attractive and as it is in old city it takes you less time to travel around anywhere. In night you can have a walk around the nearby areas and make your stay memorable.

Posted 12 Aug, 2008

As a destination, GOA is just THE BEST, hence Udaipur earns a mere 6 for no fault of its. A M A Z I N G L Y R O Y A L E experience. Shiv Niwas is a must stay, being at the hub of all the happenings, a lake on one side, museum on the other, with the Maharaja living next door. You cant ask for more.
