Stayed there this weekend. Went to meet some family and was pretty disappointed. Buffet was a joke. Having stayed at a JW Marriott a week ago, the buffet look lame. 3 - 4 hot dishes which were mostly south indian. No local cuisine. Poor service, Waiters and cleaning staff could not talk in English and did not want to talk... More

The lawns, spa, pool, greenery and the overall appearance of the Palace is very good and decently maintained. What this Palace lacks is the customer satisfaction level that is expected of a Taj run property. We stayed at the Royal suite on the top floor ( Chand Niwas ) as a family of three for three nights starting 14 June.... More

Was once a palace that has been renovated into a beautiful and luxurious hotel with wonderful pool and peaceful spa. Exquisite decor, excellent staff and delicious food. My only complaint was that the hotel had no liquor licence so the bar was closed and no alcohol served on the premises. However, this is a really fabulous hotel, which I cannot... More

This palace fulfills all expectations. The building is beautiful, the rooms are big and perfect, the restaurant is a real pleasure and most of all, the employees are amazing, they do anything to make your stay a daydream.

A true palace built more than 120 years ago, visited by kings and queens, on nine acres with beautifully landscaped gardens. Part of the Taj Hotel family, it lives up to their high standards in every area. The suite I had was enormous, the bath with a sunken tub was the size of many rooms I have stayed in and... More

From the superb quality of the rooms through to the lovely food on offer at dinner and breakfast times, I can find no element of the experience that could be criticised in the least.

We stayed 2 nights and unfortunately booked via expedia-cleartrip.com had a better room with breakfast for a cheaper price so check them first.

Me and my family stayed at the Usha Kiran Palace from 26th to 29th of April. The palace hotel has an amazing architecture and beautiful lawns which make it look very impressive.

The property on it's own is wonderful. It's been restored with a lot of taste. Not very child friendly with lots of stairs, different levels of flooring etc. The staff was great and were keen to do all they could to make the stay comfortable.
