The Fateh Prakash Palace hotel is situated at the northern end of the City Place Complex, almost directly opposite Udaipur's most famed building -- the Lake Palace hotel, in the middle of Lake Pichola. This affords an unrivaled view of the hotel and the lake. The hotel capitalizes on it well, particularly so with the positioning of the Sunset Terrace bar and restaurant.
The hotel also enjoys a central location between the Shimbu Niwas Palace, where the Mewar royal family lives, and the City Palace Museum. However, unlike the Shiv Niwas Palace hotel, the Fateh Prakash Palace hotel doesn't offer any Udaipur city views. Its appeal comes from its proximity to the lake.
Being the smaller of the two palace hotels, the atmosphere inside the Fateh Prakash Palace hotel is cocoon-like, rather than open and expansive. The hotel is also spread over two wings, in separate buildings, which makes it feel a little fragmented.
The Fateh Prakash Palace hotel doesn't have a swimming pool, but if you do feel like going swimming or simply relaxing poolside, guests are welcome to use the pool at the Shiv Niwas Palace hotel free of charge.
A great benefit of staying at the Fateh Prakash Palace hotel is that guests are allowed to freely roam around the City Palace Complex (with the exception of going inside the royal residence), so you can feel right at home!
