Surprisingly, with the cost of room charged, NO FREE Wi-Fi. No heat facility in cold temperature, Shower were malfunctioning in two rented rooms, Beds were squeaky. No elevators. Not worth the price and no service.

It is one of the largest privately owned structure in the world. Beautifully designed and majestic. They give an audio guide with the ticket and it has detailed description in different languages. The one hour tour of the palace is worth every penny. Don't miss it.

It is a palace which is still used by the family of the royal era. It is quite expensive for what it is. You can only visit the ground floor. Upper floors are still used by the family of the royals. The palace is well kept and maintained. Value for money is doubtful.

This one of the places which I love to visit again and again. The experience was amazing and felt good to fell the royal vibes. This place will definitely take back to the time when the Royal Gaekwad family were the rulers of the city. One should definitely visit this place if you are in Vadodara

This place is among the Heritage Sites in the Vadodara City and now they serve hospitality to the residents, so it is a must-visit place for Barodians as well as tourists.
