The room assigned to me had a peacock blue mosaic bath tub, sitting room and the bedroom opened on to a terrace with a table and 2 chairs looking over the...

It was our 3rd stay at this hotel and we were very disappointed. The elevator was out of order because "wedding guests were abusing it." Even after seeing me on crutches, the management could not think of finding another room but they opened the elevator. The bar has been closed for 2 years so we could not invite business associates...

I join with the other recent reviewers who take the view that this is an excellent hotel and certainly the best in Gwalior by far. Beautiful grounds behind a large perimeter wall with huge gates attended by security. Pool was crystal clear and spotlessly clean. This is a smaller hotel of the "boutique" variety. Taj seems to excel at thoroughly...

Some properties just get it right. Usha Kiran for us was one such place. The room itself, the setting, the huge number of grey hornbills on the property, the food the service, for us it all worked. My son is a big fan and enjoyed himself thoroughly. Unfortunately this is not on our regular route to anywhere but we highly...

The Taj Usha Kiran in Gwalior is gem hidden in the middle of the country. The property was beautiful and the service was excellent. With large groups, there is a tendency lose track of the details but we faced NONE of that. A special dinner and morning walk was organized for us and it went off without a hitch. I...

It didnt disappoint. Old world yet inviting. The fountains lit up at night give it a surreal appearance . We travelled as a group...loved the breakfast and the ambiance for the special dinner...we were served out in the open.. under the age old trees. Even took a tonga ride.
