Very clean room with neat and clean bathroom. Staff is very good and cooperative. The food at Roof top restaurant was excellent. Visited number of places and eat at high profile restaurant but never tested this kind of food. One of the best thing I need to share, every time they cooked fresh food against your eyes.

We were met at the door by BABA the jolly owner of the hotel. We stayed in a quaint room with 2 window seats. There was a great rooftop restaurant/bar with great views over the lake and to the city area. The hotel is in a convenient location and walking distance to City Palace ,shops and lake. An enjoyable experience... More

Was little upset when entering the place but was happy when I stayed there. Actually it is the best place if you looking for a night stay or if you just need a place to rest at night. Owned by Rao family staying inside ate very polite and wonderful people. A Muslim care taker is a lovely smiley person and... More

When we arrived in Udaipur, the rickshaw brought us right to Amar Villas. At first sight we thought that this hotel would be way more expensive than what we could pay. So we were about to leave when Baba appeared. Baba is working at Amar Villas and he was so friendly and welcoming that we couldn't say no to take... More

Nice place to stay. The manager 'baba' is awesome. Very clean and comfortable rooms with seating area on each level overlooking the local volleyball court used most nights which is great to watch. Nice rooftop restaurant with good food and great staff. Handy to the tourist areas but nicely tucked away from the noise etc. Highly recommend staying here.

There's volleyball game played daily in the backyard of the hotel (ends at 10pm so the noise is not late) After staying at a few hotels, it's good to know that they have reliable and fast WIFI! Owner is Arvind Singh Rao is very good host. Room rates are very reasonable
