We have been to a number of Taj properties but have never been to a Royal Heritage palace before. The place itself is in the middle of a bursting city and from outside you may not expect what a serene place it is indeed. Usha Kiran is a royal palace beautifully converted to the demands of the modern traveler. Its... More

The day my son Abhishek booked Hotel Usha Kiran for us for our short stay at Gwalior , I had a peculiar sensation that we’re really getting an opportunity to stay at an actual Palace. My feeling came true when we ( Myself, my Spouse, Daughter and Sons) entered the “ Usha Kiran “ premises, we consider ourselves as members... More

We love staying at Taj, and other lower versions of Taj brand --> Usha Kiran Palace was our first choice while visiting Gwalior as rates were attractive in off season (August). The property and its location is outstanding - its what we expected. Real royal palace and rooms. Recommended for all travelers who want to see how rich Indian royalty... More

Just stayed with my wife and two friends during the extended Independence Day weekend. Right from the entrance till the check in it was Taj all over. Very professional, courteous and personal. As we have booked a Villa, the reception was even grand. The Villa though was tucked in one corner of the property and was really difficult to come... More

Expansive property, big rooms, high roof, old world charm but a bit too stiff. Expectations were quite high when we visited this hotel but a little disappointed. Would love to see a more comfortable bed, a decent TV set, bit more maintained woodwork when you checkin to a hotel of this calibre. There was no fruit basket in the room... More

The palace is amazing. That's all. Forget any decent welcome. You must pay (and too much) from internet to the boring breakfast. Rooms are decent but small and not really easy. When I decide to sleep in a room where servants of maharaja slept, I don't ask for a luxurious hotel. I prefer more humble, honest and not such pretentious... More

Just stayed at Usha Kiran Palace for 2 nights over the long weekend. Hotel was sold out on one night and the single restaurant was overflowing beyond capacity. Buffet was not refilled and we had to wait several times till the food was available. Note that we were at our table at 9.30pm and not towards closing time. They charged... More
