We went for a drink and dinner. The Palace itself is beautiful and the gardens well maintained. Nonetheless the hotel's bar and restaurant was very quite when we ate there which means very little ambience. I feel the HRH Group of Hotels need to work on their marketing as we stayed in another HRH hotel in Ranakpur and there was...

This place is a dream holiday..like living like royalty. The service and staff hospitality was par excellence. The food, rooms, views and the general attitude of each person there made our 2 Nights and 3 Days an unbelievable experience. Completely recommended...Would love to go back

We stayed as part of an 18 day tour in the palace and were initially very impressed and excited until we realized we'd been relegated to the courtyard or palace rooms. No windows really and definitely tired. Since starting this I checked online what this place costs....when you're doing a tour it's often difficult to sort out what costs what....and...

Stayed in December 2016 for 2 days. A part of the city palace is converted to a hotel. This is a really classy place reminding of the grandeur of the Rajput era. The palace converted to a hotel is very well maintained and situated in the heart of the city. Food is great, in fact it has a very elaborate...

While this is listed as a 5 star hotel please keep in mind it is a Heritage Hotel and there are parts that are...

The management only changed us one night accomodation despite the non refundable nature of the tarrif. We were upgraded to room 16 and...

We spent 2 nights in this superb palace, close to the city palace and where the royal family still lives. Everything is gorgeous and outstanding. Couldn't ask for more! Enjoy the magnificent bar with authentic furniture and un comparable view of the lake. Everything is luxury here. Restaurant is very good. Unfortunately we could not enjoy the terrace because of...

we booked the Palace rooms based on the visuals and description on the website, but unfortunately found them absolutely no where near the old world look and feel of the property as show cased on the site. Infact the Palace rooms are an "annex" rather then part of the main Building, looks like a verandah, later covered and converted into...
