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

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

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

Usha Kiran has a very intimidating first impression, so much history and such a beautiful garden... Everything was good, the room, the royal touch, the beautiful balconies, the imperial looking pool, and the staff was very polite. It just felt a little stuffy at times because of small pathways and old TV and moderate matress... We came straight from Taj... More

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.
