Welcome to Chandra Niwas, a home stay where you can truly feel at home and are guaranteed a quiet night's sleep. Located in a peaceful non-touristy neighborhood, Chandra Niwas provides guests with a unique opportunity to experience real Indian life and culture. This is not your average impersonal, commercial hotel in the middle of the touristy area. This is a home into which you will be warmly welcomed and given personal attention to ensure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable.
We welcome those guests with an interest in exploring the local community and a desire to escape the hassles and touts that plague touristy areas. Part of the revenue generated from the home stay is invested in a grassroots non-profit organization, providing education to rural youth. In all our rooms you will find wall-hangings and bed covers made by local village artists. We have many other local arts and crafts on display in the communal area, which guests may purchase if they wish. Most rooms have wifi, and all rooms have en-suite bathrooms with 24 hours hot water. Breakfast is included and is served in a lovely dining area where free internet access and wifi is available. You may also eat on the roof-top, overlooking the organic vegetable garden, and home-cooked lunches and dinners are available upon request. We also have a small library created by past travelers, including travel books, novels, and DVDs.
Your hosts, Dr. Samvit Audichya and his hospitable family will personally assist you in planning your days in Udaipur, depending on your interests and length of stay. The hosts will also gladly take care of your transport needs and help you with onward travel arrangements (all at no extra cost). We genuinely enjoy helping our guests! We are a ten minute drive from the city center and walking distance to many stores, restaurants and a pharmacy. Staying at Chandra Niwas you will have the opportunity to see Udaipur not just through the eyes of a tourist, but through the eyes of a local. For those who are interested, it is possible to participate in our socially responsible stay program, which will include visiting local villages and learning more about our community, our NGO and our development work with rural youth. Please contact us directly for more information about this.
We have a no alcohol policy and ask that you do not smoke in the rooms. Breakfast is included and is served at 9-30am in the dining area where wifi is also available. We ask that guests return to the home stay by 10-30pm, although you can still get in after this time :)

We are able to arrange a tuk tuk (rickshaw) pick up from the train or bus stations or the airport. Please call ahead to let us know your time of arrival and we shall do the rest :)
Alternatively, if you get your own mode of transport, you can ask for Siphon Circle and continue past this circle for 500 metres on the Bedla- Badgaon Link Road until you reach an absolutely huge tree on the left. There is a turning on the left directly after this tree and we can easily meet you there or you can ask anyone in the vicinity for Chandra Niwas. It is a 1 minute walk from here. You can always call for directions or help also :)
The homestay is located in a non-touristy neighborhood just outside of Udaipur. It is off the main road so it is quiet and a peaceful nights sleep is guaranteed. The city center and all of Udaipur's attractions can be reached easily by a shared or private tuk tuk (5 rupees for a shared auto). Near the house there are many small shops selling fresh juice, chai, packaged and baked goods, toiletries and medicines. We can also arrange for bicycles to explore the local villages surrounding the area.
