Pratap Bhawan
Ranked #33 of 273 Udaipur B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 October 2011

The place is nice, quite and close to Pichola. The rooms are clean, decent size and the staff is very very nice and will go extra mile to make your stay comfortable.
The owner is also very helpful. He arranged for a taxi for a trip to Mt. Abu at a very reasonable price and at a very short notice. They have a roof top restaurant but will also provide room service. Although the menu has only breakfast items, they served us lunch and dinner on request.

Location: Very well connected by Auto and taxi, Nearest Rail & Bus station is also not too far. Best part about the hotel is the location.

Rooms : Good Ambience, Clean rooms. You can have a great view from hotel rooftop.
The hotel is also Near lakeside for some beauty. I found the look and feel a bit tacky. But, despite that it is More comfortable and the staff is very helpful.

Room Tip: Hotel staff will help to choose best room...

I stayed at Amrita Vilas in March 2011, and will stay there again on my next visit to Udaipur. The rooms are light and fresh and owners and staff happy to do whatever they can to ensure a pleasant stay. Breakfasts are good - and very reasonable. I had omlettes most mornings. There is a view of the lake from the rooftop, and you can walk most places. Owners also helpful in organising airport transfers and suggesting places of interest. Travelling on my own, I was very thankful of their assistance. Other good thing..... the beds are comfortable and the room rates are very reasonable. Will stay again.

after spending 2 months in india, it was a pleasure to arrive at shakti's hotel. it's small (9 rooms), spotlessly clean, warm, and NOT A SCAM! we prolonged our stay in his newly, humble, beautifully decorated hotel because it was nice to come back to pratap bhawan at the end of a day. we made it our base hotel. shakti is honest. which appears to be unique where tourism is concerned in india. we would be blissful to assume it's not so. after traveling in a country for so long, finding some decent people is a treat.
his room rates are very reasonable, and he and his staff are extremely abiding. his staff are instructed not to take tips, so you must force it upon them. try to book the ninth room at the roof. it has two windows with views.
he is resourceful and helpful...wanting to help make your trip a good one. not just in it for the buck!
when arriving in udaipur by air, train, bus...just ask the rickshaw to take you to Lal Ghat (it's a small road with alot of small hotels) and look for number 12. his sign is small, but don't let that sway you. Look for number 12, and walk up the steps....to a clean, warm, peaceful abode!

Pratap Bhawan is a clean and hygienic premises centrally located in Udaipur overlooking the lakes & temples and within walking distance to both the Lal Ghat and general market areas.
The staff here really do bend backwards to ensure you are comfortable and the owner, Shakti proves this time and time again.
Have a masala chai with him and ask him to tell you about the time he arranged an elephant procession for one of his guests!
My wife was somewhat ill upon arrival to Udaipur, which was also our wedding anniversary day. I told this to Shakti, that I had a problem and wasnt sure what to do. So while she relaxed and slept in a clean and cool room in Pratap Bhawan, Shakti arranged a romantic dinner for us. This included a moto trip through town to a wine importer for me to pick one of my wife's favourites (hard to find in India). A private section of the roof top, higher from the usual dining area was laid out with rose petals all around the place. Candles. A private Sitar player was brought to the hotel for me to meet. And he would play for us while accompanied by Tablas while we ate. A pre-personalised meal including cake for dessert was specified by me beforehand. And then fireworks to top it off followed by cheers from an adjacent rooftop.
And this was the first time he had arranged this sort of meal, yet it all went flawlessly.
My wife was absolutely blown away when we arrived at dinner that night.
This twilight meal and beautiful music, looking out over the lake, and then the palace, looking up at the monsoon temple, or behind us at Jagmandir temple, all lit up, was our most memorable moment in India. I dared not take any photos as we could never capture such a moment on film.
Just because things are not written down on a menu does not mean that Shakti cannot arrange it, just ask.
Thank you Shakti and his staff for the experience, we cant wait to return some day.

Excellent little guest house in the centre of Udaipur, just minutes from the Lake and City Palace.
The service we received was excellent, and way and above what we expected. One of our group was ill, and the owner checked on her several times whilst we were out sightseeing ensuring that she was ok and taking her water or anything else she needed. The guest house also arranged a cooking class for us (in another building a minute's walk away, also owned by the same person), and for a palm reader to visit the hotel one afternoon and read our palms.
Breakfast is available on the roof top should you want it. Very cheap, and all cooked fresh within view.
Rooms are spacious and most have window seats overlooking the streets of Udaipur, with modern air-con
