The only thing which will bother you is they... More

Umed Bhawan is a sprawling palace hotel. It is professionally run and comes at very reasonable rates. Don't expect the opulence of a 5 star palace but it's a wonderful... More

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 !

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
