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...

This is a huge place with massive rooms and huge bathrooms. Our room was a bit dark but we had a pleasant stay prior to catching the train back to Delhi. We walked around the palace and down the drive where there were loads of monkeys. Food in the restaurant was very good. Staff were very helpful and the wifi...

My wife and I stayed for one night in the Umed Bhawan Palace when visiting Kota en route between Udaipur and Ranthambore game reserve during a tour of northern India. Apparently, it is the best hotel in Kota, so there really was no alternative, other than a 10-hour drive all the way to Ranthambore. Based on previous experience and Trip...

A beautiful property set in quiet park area. Food was good. The bedrooms are huge but could perhaps do with a little bit of freshening up, especially the bathrooms. You have to pay for wi-fi, which is only available for one device and it kept throwing me out and having to log in again which was rather frustrating. Staff were...

Visited umed Mahal palace in Jodhpur with my family. Entry fee is quite reasonable and this place is nicely maintained and its very neat and clean. Could see all the royal artifacts paintings collection and vintage cars. It takes around 2 hr to see this place. I wd rate 8 out of 10 for visiting this palace.

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
