Good 6.0
The Hotel is in an incredible location, right next to the palace. The staff are very pleasant and helpful but the hotel generally could do with a major refurbishment. Although the room was obviously kept very clean there was paint peeled off the walls in most of the room so it sadly gave the impression that the hotel was not well kept.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. We felt like royalty being here. The royal family resides at the Palace. The rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast was just ok. The staff did offer to make us omelets, which was nice. Our room offered a beautiful view of Lake Pichola. Wi-Fi was very fast. We had our own router in the room. We received massages here and had a great time at the spa. You will not regret staying here.

We stayed in a palace with combination of modern & 20th century charm. The history and decor was interesting. It was a short walk to The City where shopping, restaurants and light & sound show awaits. The dinner was terrific and complimentary breakfast was wonderful, including made to order omletes!!

Archana, us2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Way too pricey for the amenities. Dinner was lousy, the folks serving didn't know what they were serving and/or were not knowledgeable. Breakfast however was very good. Bathrooms had 18th century pipes and fittings.The king size bed was made using two Twin beds joined together leaving a bump/valley in the middle. It was very painful. TV was never working and had to call room service thrice and they didn't show up once. The adjacent City-Palace and shopping around was great.. The lake Pichola was a disappointment. The water was very dirty and did not feel like dipping my finger into it. The pictures look gorgeous but the reality is very different - I guess that is the sad part of travelling in India.
