“Great views and relaxed place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

Nice hotel with rooms which are a bit different to the norm, in a kind of tented style on the rooftop. There's great views from up there of the lakes and little glimpse of the lake palace hotel.  It's a bit out of town, something like a 20-30 minute walk, which is pleasant, or c. 70 in an autorickshaw, but this also makes it very peaceful.
relatively to what else you can get in the town centre it's a touch on the expensive side, but then again you pay for the quietness and the view.
Breakfast was good and lots of it, and the staff were nice and eager to please.

A sense of calm and serene prevails as I collect and un-collect my thoughts, emotions, and expressions enthroned in the quaint epitome of tradition, the Kurabarkothi. Overlooking the embalming ripples of lakes Swaroop Sagar and Pichola and graced by the distant backdrop of the ceremonially lit Udaipur Palace, this place offers a truly unwinding experience. Even to date, the bells of the ‘Sandhya Pooja’ chime in unison with the ‘Magrib Azhaan’ in these quiet corners where every ruin of history stands witness to timelessness. With every breath, I inhale the echoes of a culture lost and a culture preserved and served on a commercial platter. For once silence seems to be the greatest gift endowed upon mankind!!!

Room Tip: Rooms that overlook lake Pichola offer a beautiful sunset view!

Kurabar Kothi is a kothi turned hotel located in a quiet corner of Udaipur. The lake view rooms offer a quite distant view of the Fateh Sagar lake. My experience was not great, maybe because I had high expectations from the place.
Some facts about the hotel are:
1. Its located about 5-7 km from the station contrary to 2-3 km mentioned on their website.
2. The nearest point is Fateh Sagar Lake, the view of the lake is what the hotel is offering. The view is quite distant and average.
3. The dine in resteraunt is completely and outrageously over priced. I mean I had to shell out Rs. 240 for 8 tiny pieces of Chicken Tikka. 2 boiled eggs cos Rs. 90. I don't know if the chicken that lays the eggs is blessed or what.
4. The service is slack and the waiters don't understand what you're saying. Service is one area where the hotel falls flat on its face. I was disgusted at the service.
5. Rooms are cozy and tastefully done. Thumbs up on that front.
6. The mini bar according to the hotel is an empty fridge. You can order drinks from the reception which you can place in the fridge for cooling. The drinks are sold for quite a steep markup, another testimony to the overpriced menu.

All in all i would rate them as not a professional hotel and I will definitely not stay there again. There are much better options available in Udaipur for the same budget in terms of location and value for money.
When in Udaipur, do visit Shilpgram. Try the food at hotel shilpi adjacent to it. Its great and is truly value for money unlike KK.
Happy Holidaying.

Room Tip: Bargain hard. Try to get the rooms with full lake view. They also offer rooms with "partial&qu...

What a lovely place to stay! I don't think there can be better views in all of Udaipur of the lake, palaces, surrounding hills and city. You have to see it to believe it! My husband I spent a few nights in the Kurabar Kothi. After each day's sightseeing, we loved to spend some time just looking from the bedroom windows, sitting comfortably on the window seat, or by a small table on the rooftop (enjoying a nice cool Kingfisher, brought to us by Perumbala), admiring the unimpeded 345 degree view.
Our bedroom was very spacious and beautifully and tastefully furnished and decorated, and so was the reception area. The outside walls were sparkling white and the entire place was so clean!
Although we dealt mostly with the two very pretty young ladies at reception, the manager and all the staff members were really friendly and helpful.
The rooftop restaurant had a very good and varied menu, and the meals we enjoyed there were utterly delicious.
No brochure can do justice to this hotel, one has to experience it oneself! It is not a big hotel and the ambience is just great. We would certainly like to go back and stay there again. We highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask at reception, they are very helpful.
