We were a group of three travellers staying here for two nights for pleisure. This is a good hotel and although its slightly out of town, we found the location to be preferrable to anything else in the town itself because its secluded and quiet. The paintings and decor of the hotel is truly remarkable. If you can, get a tour of the property by Abhishek. The caveat is that a lot of the decor was made for tourists and lacks the traditional (historic) appeal.
The rooms themselves are clean, beds comfortable although we had to get our sheets changed because they had accumulated water dripping from the air conditioner.
BEST THING ABOUT THIS HOTEL: the terrace overlooking Lake Pichola, the Lake Palace and you can see the City Palace at a distance, especially beautiful during the nighttime. I would dubb this, the best view in town.
Dinner at the hotel restaurant (on that same rooftop terrace) is excellent, albeit quite pricey and we found the armada of waitors around us ruiniing the quite tranquil dinner atmosphere.
Good alternatives in terms of food include the Restaurant at the Raj Palace Hotel below the City Palace and Rajasthali close to City Palace.
We would stay here again, even if it was only for the view and the pool. The whole building glows in a honey colour in the sunset.
