Reviewed October 13, 2013

It's cheap, the staff is friendly, and the food (only veg) is of decent quality. The rooms feel a little cramped. The decor is dated. And, the level of cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. In short, this is not a bargain. You're getting exactly what you're paying for. Personally, I would not stay here again.

Dear Guests,
Thanks for reviewing us. Your feedback is valuable. We are pleased to know that you were satisfied with the service,food quality,location together with friendly staff and found the hotel value for money.We have noted your suggestions. The ones that do not comply to our limitations we promise to work upon.
We would like to mention that most of our guest have found our hotels cleanliness standards to be very high .We endeavor to create an honest impression of our hotel and do not subscribe to the idea of boastful advertisements/claims. PADMINI PALACE is a 20-Room family run small hotel that prides itself in offering quality basic standard accommodation. We do not pretend or portray to offer luxury rooms. Our rooms are equipped with basic amenities. However the Guests sometimes hold the impression that PADMINI PALACE is a luxury hotel as a result of our high ranking on Tripadvisor .We are disappointed that we could not meet the Guest's expectations. We wish the Guest had mentioned this once during their brief Stay, we would have done our best to make it a memorable one.If given a second chance we would love to welcome you again and assure you of our best attention at all times.
Wish you a fabulous Year ahead!
Warm regards from all of us at Hotel Padmini palace

We were a family of 4 members on vacation to Rajasthan and during our trip to Udaipur, we stayed at the 'Royal Family suite' in this hotel. Unlike other such 'family' rooms we've seen in other hotels which are usually 'just big-enough to squeeze in', this one stood out as grand and lavish with lots of room space (big enough to easily accommodate 6-7 people), great carpets, home-theater system, multiple a/cs and a big round bath-tub, among others. The room service was prompt and hospitality of the hotel staff very much appreciable. The hotel also had a pure veg. roof-top restaurant which served delicious food.

We also had a look at the single/double occupancy rooms in the hotel (although we didn't use them) and they seemed very well maintained.

Aside from the hotel amenities, the location is certainly worthwhile mentioning, as it located at a stone's throw distance from the famous 'Gulabh Bagh', 'Vintage car museum' and the famous 'Bapu Bazar' & 'Chandpole' market areas. Even the 'City palace' and 'Lake Pichola' are quite easily accessible from this location (auto-rickshaws)

Since there is no internet facility in this hotel, the management could consider adding Wi-Fi facilities for guests for significantly improving the customer experience and move from 'Very Good' to an undisputed 'Excellent' !

Overall, it's a great place and we would certainly recommend this to all travelers: family or solo.

Room Tip: For families or people travelling as a group, the 'Royal Family Suite' is the best option fo...

I had no prior reservation and came to the hotel by chance, but now i am glad i did. Padmini Palace is very strategically located, has very clean and spacious rooms, room service is excellent and if you are a vegetarian , then you would love the experience, food is not very expensive and the quantity is good.Everyone is helpful and always wears a smile.If you are traveling alone, then also it is a good option,very safe environment. In total, a wonderful experience.

Reviews for this hotel so we decided to stay one night. The standard 800 inr room is too small for anyone. So we took the 1000inr room. Still small but OK.
Good bed and TV. But the shower and toilet ... even with fan inside it, it always stinks! !
By mistake we didn't close the toilet door when we left for dinner, when we come back the room smelt like sewer ...

No wifi at all at the hotel i dont know why they write they have??

As to clean or not- toilet and shower looked clean. Bad sheets were dirty so we ask to change. ..

Overall- not worth the price. .go more cheap or more expensive

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are disappointed to learn that we could not make your stay a memorable one. If only you could have expressed during your stay of your discomfort, you would have seen how the Staff at ‘Hotel Padmini Palace could go out of their way to assist you.
Having read your remarks we would like to mention that all the other reviews are written by our esteemed guests like your kind self who are not necessarily backpackers but looking for clean, basic accommodation that’s value for money. This is what we endeavor to provide.

The above Reviewer/Guest didn't booked the hotel online they took the room after physically checking the room as an walk-in customer to the hotel and after checking the room at our hotel the guest went to search some other accommodations for themselves since they were looking for a room close to INR 700.
The above guest came after 1 hour of the first visit and took the basic standard room for INR 1000 and coming back after 1 hour of the first visit clearly shows that they found many other attributes of hotel padmini palace to be good and the basic standard room good to there comfort and if the room size was looking small to them then i am confused why they did't took the deluxe or the super deluxe room and if there budget was restricted then they should be happy with the standard room at that price and size which was taken by them after physically checking the room.
Just to make the point clear, HPP is a mid-range hotel offering basic, clean accommodation with Standard rooms on offer. We do not boast stars but promise you a value for money with a lot of heart and effort put into serving you.
I would like to mention that we have not displayed at the hotel or on our web site that we have wifi in the hotel neither do we have wifi nor do we claim for it but we will have it soon.
Just a reminder to the reviewer that the standard room they had was INR 1074 per night inclusive of taxes. Their taste and profile required something three times the price.
Our humble take on the comments by the reviewer;.
We promise you a better portion if given a second chance.
Warm Regards from all of us at Hotel Padmini Palace
