It's very easy to be carried away by the royal ambiance that the hotel provides. As one takes a closer look and impressions change very fast. Unclean curtains, very poor service and pretty average food is what you are left with, despite such high premium charged in terms of prices. This is facility is run by the Govt of India... More

We were told that there is a cover charge of rs. 150 per head which includes coffee or tea. We paid abs entered. Unfortunately for us the breakfast was over and we were left with no choice... More

I can see that others have had the same experience as we. Arriving at the palace gives rise to great expectations because the exterior at night with all its lights is a magical sight. The spell broke the moment we set foot inside where a large group of youngsters were playing and dancing to horrendously loud tinny sounds of Bollywood... More

They charged us 100 bucks for each of the members in the cab, including the taxi guy. We were told that we would be served complimentary tea/coffee and further we could get the amount (paid at the gate) adjusted into our food bill. We thought OK and paid there. When we entered into the hotel, we were not allowed to... More

Despite some negative reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to visit the Lalitha Mahal restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is gorgeous! If you come around 8 it's mostly tourists, but an hour later the Indian people come for dinner too. The food was good, a little pricey, but the surroundings are worth it. Staff is attentive and pleasant!

This is a typical example of old grandeur wasted by poor government operations. The food in the restaurant was very basic, and the place is not at all well maintained. The staff is lazy and do not understand a word of hospitality. Save your money.
