Fodor's Expert Review Shiv Niwas Palace
City Palace Complex, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India
Once the royal guest house, where the maharaja of Udaipur had his guests stay, gracious Shiv Niwas on Lake Pichola is another part of the City Palace complex, and still features plenty of antiques and royal memorablia in its decor. The white stone pool and the gardens add to the magical ambience. Half its accommodations are in the better-maintained suites, but even the regular palace rooms are chic and large with a sitting area and a desk. Some need renovation so ask to see a couple of options.
- pretty pool and poolside restaurant with live music
- centrally located
- some rooms lack views
- a touch expensive for what you get
