Few things has to be improved - water pressure in toilet, the shower has to be put little higher, dim light or night lamp should be provided. Below attached device should be removed from roof, two green LED light is blinking while you are sleeping.

Been to this old mansion converted into hotel with still the feel of king's time . The food here was better than expected . The staff at the restaurant and the bar are decent tho' little less experienced for such a big hotel . Still recommended to go for food and luxury !

The hotel did accommodate us with a room upstairs with a window; no view... More

Clean rooms, courteous staff. Built in an actual palace. Has a huge green area around and what a welcome change from the pollution of Delhi. Have tried other hotels in kota but they are no match for this place. Would recommend this hotel for sure

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Maharaja Umed Singh II, ruling king of Kota in the early 1900s, who resided in the medieval fort within the city of Kota, decided that he wanted a modern palace for his personal use. He commissioned Sir Swinton Jacob, an officer of the Royal Engineers in the British Army to undertake the conception and implementation of this Palace Umed Bhawan. The Palace subtly blends Rajput and Victorian architecture. WelcomHeritage Umed Bhawan Palace, Kota exudes an aura of its own, Lush lawns and courtyards, picturesque ceilings, marble corridors, hunting trophies of yesteryear, along with exquisite royal heirlooms are the special features of the palace. ... more   less
