“Fantastic Hotel, Incredible Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

We spent 5 days at Umaid Mahal this year during the Elephant Fest and Holi Festival. The decor is great, rooms clean and the western style showers have tons of pressure and an endless supply of hot water. The rooftop restaurant had an extensive menu. We spent more than one night eating delicious tikka pizza and drinking refreshing mojitos. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They did our laundry for a reasonable price and there were always willing to help us find transportation (however, the taxis loitering outside were reasonable priced and always available). The rooms were very quiet and there's an ATM within walking distance. We were a little disappointed that the pool was super cold, but I can't think of anything else to even slightly complain about. For the price, this place can't be beat. It was definitely our favorite hotel and we stayed in 2 others that were priced higher.

I was expecting this place to be larger. But I liked the decor and the room interiors. The beds were good looking and bathrooms alright. We took 3 rooms and one of the three had really small bathroom. I would suggest to check that room out before really going for it.

The location of the hotel was good but there could be a parking issue if there are many guests driving to the hotel at one point of time.

Room Tip: Check out if it is not the smallest room

May husband and I stayed at Umaid Mahal in March 2012.The location of this hotel is good - close to most of the tourist spots. The rooftop restaurant is cozy and has great food. We enjoyed their breakfast as well as dinner. The receptionist is very pleasant, they have a travel agent who will give you tips on places to visit and things to avoid - very helpful. The staff at the rooftop restaurant tend to get a little loud at times which can be annoying if you want to just sit and enjoy your meal and the cool breeze.The decor of our room (royal deluxe) was nice - painting of the royal family adorned the walls. The bathroom was clean with running hot and cold water.

Brilliant Hotel. Superb ever-smiling staff. I was amazed at the quality of food there too. Such a small hotel but I had a fantastic vegetarian meal at the rooftop restaurant.

I have no idea why this hotel would have any negative review. Prompt service followed up with a homely feel.

I was upgraded to this hotel from my initial booking at Umaid Bhavan, as these are sister concerns of each other.

Great experience overall.

We searched for this hotel and were really lured by its website. We thought we were going to a nicely decorated hotel with grt swimming pool and great interiors. but as we got there it was soooo disappointing. Terrible rooms....poor hospitality.... horrible staffs...and restaurant was terrible too..!! For the same amount of money we paid here we had visited Lemon tree in Indore. and the differences were huge. Only one staff was good. They said they had library in the top.. which actually was a small collection of books, worn out books, stacked in a shelf. there was no cultural show or anything like welcoming us with rajasthani style as it had been mentioned in our invoice. Very Disappointing.!!!
