The rooms are big and infuse in you the...

I had gone to Umed Bhawan Palace for dinner and also to spend time there till I caught my train. The whole palace reminds you of grandeur which existed before. The restaurant was very lively. The food was delicious, staff was very courteous and hospitable.

This is one of the finest place to host a wedding in kota city! Stayed here for three days. The rajasthani thali is the best specially the deserts they offer in the end ie gulab jamun chaaas etc. Have a great amount of parking space. And yes one can easily host a wedding reception in its courtyards

I stayed there some weeks ago for a night. In the morning after a tub bath, I came out and slipped. Fortunately I didnt fall. I realised that tub water had been leaking in the whole washroom. I informed the front desk, but they didn't think it was a big deal. They said, maintenance must have forgotten to check it....

Umed Bhawan Palace is in the heart of Kota city, and the best option for sure. It is a very large estate, with big gardens and beautiful courtyards and old-world charm. It may not be like the spanking-new redecorated palaces that are steeped in ostentation, but it is a lovely property with huge rooms. Our room was really large, with...

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
