My wife and I stayed for one night in the Umed Bhawan Palace when visiting Kota en route between Udaipur and Ranthambore game reserve during a tour of northern India. Apparently, it is the best hotel in Kota, so there really was no alternative, other than a 10-hour drive all the way to Ranthambore. Based on previous experience and Trip...

A beautiful property set in quiet park area. Food was good. The bedrooms are huge but could perhaps do with a little bit of freshening up, especially the bathrooms. You have to pay for wi-fi, which is only available for one device and it kept throwing me out and having to log in again which was rather frustrating. Staff were...

Visited umed Mahal palace in Jodhpur with my family. Entry fee is quite reasonable and this place is nicely maintained and its very neat and clean. Could see all the royal artifacts paintings collection and vintage cars. It takes around 2 hr to see this place. I wd rate 8 out of 10 for visiting this palace.

The rooms were very spacious and big. You get that royal feeling as soon as you enter the palace. In my opinion, it is the best place in this city to have a luxurious and comfortable stay. I am really happy with my stay and would recommend this to others.

Visited Kota on work and this place was not our first choice really as we required good internet connectivity. Having said that, don't regret choosing to stay here after all. Umed Bhawan is a sprawling palace hotel. It is professionally run and comes at very reasonable rates. Don't expect the opulence of a 5 star palace but it's a wonderful...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Maharaja Umed Singh II, ruling king of Kota in the early 1900s, who resided in the medieval fort within the city of Kota, decided that he wanted a modern palace for his personal use. He commissioned Sir Swinton Jacob, an officer of the Royal Engineers in the British Army to undertake the conception and implementation of this Palace Umed Bhawan. The Palace subtly blends Rajput and Victorian architecture. WelcomHeritage Umed Bhawan Palace, Kota exudes an aura of its own, Lush lawns and courtyards, picturesque ceilings, marble corridors, hunting trophies of yesteryear, along with exquisite royal heirlooms are the special features of the palace. ... more   less
