Yes, Umed Bhawan is a palace converted into a hotel, and thus the building is incredibly beautiful and the rooms are spacious. Unfortunately the amenities end there. The hotel staff, while polite, seemed disorganized and somewhat clueless. I know Kota is a small town and therefore unlikely to attract many visitors, but the hotel seemed absolutely dead (leading us to... More

The hotel is a converted palace. Hence expect long corridors, heavy wooden furniture, high ceiling and obviously exclusivity. The hotel is located in the middle of wilderness cut off from city's hustle-bustle. The service is fast and courteous. You may have to prebook meals at the restaurant particularly in lean seasons. Very peaceful and enjoyable stay with lot of open... More

I was really surprised about the rent on offer for a heritage like this one. the place is a bargain for 3750 for corporate clients. a peaceful place after all the hectic days work. it was worth it. i even got time to play the snookers in the hotel.

The hotel offers a royal experience. It has a good restaurant and a bar which is suited for both family and friends. The prices are bit on higher side but overall it is a good place to take your family fora nice dinner.

Something unique traveling across India. Iconic heritage rooms were extremely spacy and well served by staff. Our group was enjoying sitting in the middle of the yard at night. It makes time at hotel magical - listening to the jungle sounds.

Organised between Nov. 12 & 16, we anticipated a lavish buffet for it was most reasonably charged. Except the chopsticks there was nothing in the ambience to impart the feel. Besides the dessert was the mundane ice cream and mousse which was too jammy. The brownies looked burnt . The meat balls were raw inside. Over all a massive disappointment... More

By all standards this is not a 5 star hotel. Its a heritage hotel so expect large spaces but not particularly well maintained. Middle of the jungle so expect some wildlife, Langoors are everywhere. But at some appointed times - can see deer, wild boars etc just outside the main gate. Wifi setup needs to be done from the front... More

We spent one night in Kota in this heritage palace hotel. Rooms are very big and comfortable. You can see still something of the old glitter all around the hotel - in the rooms, in the garden, in the lobby. Food was very tasty and there is a choice of different plates to tasty in indian and continental cuisine. But....... More
