10 Reasons to Stay at Hotel lake Pichola in Udaipur

And one reason not to stay there!

The lake city of Udaipur is one of the most romantic locations in India.  Built by  Maharana Udai Sing II in 1559 AD around an artificial Lake named Pichola, Udaipur is often referred to as the Venice of the East.  Since many of the tourist attractions of the city are situated in the old city around Lake Pichola, it is wise to stay in one of the hotels surrounding the lake. During our recent visit to Udaipur, we chose to stay at Hotel Lake Pichola located right on the banks of the lake. Here are 10 reasons that compelled us to choose our stay at this regal hotel.


Hotel Lake Pichola is located on the Brahmapuri Island  on the western banks of Lake Pichola. Staying at this hotel is like staying in the center of all the action.


The hotel is located very close to most of the popular tourist attractions like City Palace, Lake palace, islands, Bagore Ki Haveli and Gangaur Ghat.


The roof top restaurant UPRE – 1559 AD is arguably one of the most romantic restaurants in Udaipur providing a panoramic view of the old city and the city palace.


The Maharana restaurant with its majestic decor serves both Indian and Rajasthani cuisine by the lakeside offering a splendid view of the city palace.



The hotel offers live cultural and folk performances for its guests at the restaurants during each meal.


The area surrounding the hotel is a shoppers paradise. If you wish to go out shopping for souveniers, you just have to stroll in the bylanes around this hotel.


The hotel is actually an old mansion which was earlier called as Piplia haveli and has now been renovated into a heritage hotel.How would you fancy staying in a 180-year-old haveli?


The hotel provides ample opportunities for photography. Be it the corridor by the lake side or the roof top restaurant or the jharokhas of the lake facing rooms- they all offer breathtaking views of the lake from different angles.


The hotel provides all  the modern amenities such as free wifi, laundry, spa, safety lockers, geyser, kettle and TV. It has different types of rooms which cater the requirements of all types of guests.


The hotel is located in the old town of Udaipur. Would you not wish to stay in the heart of the city and have a peek into the local’s life?

Lastly, the only reason you might not like this hotel is because of the narrow lanes you will have to negotiate to reach it. The alleys are manageable during normal days but they get extremely crowded during festivals. So, choose the hotel depending on the time of your stay.

You would not go wrong in choosing Hotel Lake Pichola for your stay in Udaipur. Make sure you directly book on the hotel’s website to get the best deals. We also have a great itinerary to explore Udaipur like a pro in 24 hours.


Disclaimer: We choose to stay at Hotel Lake Pichola after a lot of research about hotels in Udaipur. Luckily, when we approached them, they happily agreed to sponsor our stay at their hotel. As always, all the views presented here are our own and we would never recommend anything which we have not experienced and liked.
