Rooms r big. Comfy bed. Bathroom is big. Good amenities inside. A good changing room I between bed and bath. Grt... More

This is a decent hotel in a town lacking many choices. The erstwhile Maharajah of Kotah's residence converted into a hotel and now run by the ITC group, this property is nestled in a wooded area replete with peacock, langurs and sambhal deer. We were there for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay, the room given to us was absolutely... More

Stayed at this magnificent property for 2 nights. Unfortunately it was on a business trip and thus was not able to completely soak in the easy regal charm and sense of history that permeates the property. Humongous rooms and no exaggeration here. Each room is more like a suite with its own sitting area and dressing cum bathroom. The food... More

A excellent place to stay in Kota. A small drive from the main road takes you to the main property. Excellent ambiance, good supporting staff and the felling of "heritage" adds to the charm. The rooms surrounds the central lawn which given as added feeling of "royal homeliness". Though lack of activities for the children do make them a bit... More

The hotel's ambiance was great, especially the restaurants. You can enjoy alcohol with food here. The alcohol was cheap as compared to Bangalore/Hyd etc. The food was good as well, although we just tried the starters.

Well, Rajasthan is a land of Rajas. The palaces speak volumes about the era gone by. In today's fast paced world, if you want to slow down to resonate with your heartbeats, this is the place to be. A magnificent palace maintained by the Welcome Group in the lesser known town of Kota, Rajasthan. Huge well maintained rooms with classical... More

This was a maharajahs palace. It was built 120 years ago and the plumbing proves it. They could not figure out how to get us hot water in the shower. The rooms are amazing. They are huge. We felt like we owned the palace. The staff was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. The food was okay. The grounds are really... More
