From the moment we arrived - with rose petals cascading down the front of the hotel - to the moment we left - when the manager came running down the stairs of the hotel to say goodbye personally and hand deliver a gift - we were treated like royalty! It is, frankly, impossible to fault this impeccable hotel.

The architecture and location are stunning: it really has to be seen to be believed. The rooms (we were upgraded to a suite) are spacious, comfortable and decorated in keeping with the hotel's art deco appearance. The bathroom was particularly decadent. The staff are discreetly attentive and appear just when you need them. The breakfast was of the highest quality, with ample choice and quantity: the waiters would even bring over dishes we hadn't ordered to see if we could be tempted (and we often were).

The pool areas (outdoor and indoor) are immaculate and the staff there even more attentive (if that is possible). Although we did not eat in the hotel restaurant, we did eat on the hotel roof, which was great (but, be warned, it can be very windy and chilly in winter).

An absolutely incredible experience and one that i would recommend to anyone who is visiting Rajistan. Detour and stay here, you will not regret it.The service is absolutely outstanding. A personal valet looks after you throughout your stay and nothing is too much trouble. Swaroop looked after me and was outstanding and not at all intrusive. The building is stunning in every detail, being the Marharajahs home helps I guess! Wonderful in every way. Not cheap, but when has anything good been cheap? Go there!

This feels like a huge palace, rather than a hotel. Its proportions are just awe-inspiring, but it is not actually a comfortable place to stay.The staff are helpful, but not with the polished service that we experienced in the Taj Rambagh and the Oberoi Amarvilas. There are only elevators in the main complex, so if your room is in one of the wings, be prepared to handle flights of stairs. I am not a big fan of Art Deco so I did not appreciate the style of our room as much as the other hotels we stayed in during our trip. While the bathroom was surprisingly spacious, the room was quite small, not what you'd expect given the exorbitant room rate. Plus the air felt extremely stagnant in many of the public spaces, so much so that I was always relieved to return to our room where the air was cooler. I'm guessing they did not have air conditioning on throughout the palace, only in the hotel rooms. The weather was quite hot, about 35 Celsius. There was no way you would enjoy eating in the formal dining room, though it was plush and beautiful. It was just too stuffy inside. Luckily, you could dine on the patio with its wonderful view, and I have a lovely memory of having breakfast there with the peacocks strutting around you, looking for tidbits.
If you can afford it, then go ahead and stay here because where else can you feel like you're living in Buckingham Palace? But if you can only splurge on one palace hotel, then I don't recommend this one: I much preferred the Rambagh and the Lake Palace.

If you want to feel like you're in a palace, that is what you will get. Lots of 'still' animals, huge staircases, sandstone everywhere. The staff tries to make you feel that way too. Even the driveway leading to it marks its presence as well.
All this does dry your wallet but what else do you expect from palace.
