Stayed here for 2 nights! Were greeted very warmly and welcomingly at the reception. the first look of the hotel itself gives the royal vibes. the amazing handpainted walls and decor lifts up your spirit instantly. we were given a room at second floor but since there was some noises from outside as some repair work was going on we requested for a room change and it was immediately done without any fuss. attaching pics for both the rooms.
the rooms are very spacious, clean, nicely lit and specially loved the little balcony types sitting space in the rooms. the bathrooms are huge and both room and bathroom are stocked with all necessary amenities. the linen is clean and bed is very comfortable.
their outdoor pool is amazing with extraordinary views! and they also have an indoor pool and mini gym. the lounge area has amazing sitting space with silver swings and old paintings and if you are there you should definitely check it out to taste the royalty ;)
the food is delicious and the service staff is extremely cordial and helping. the breakfast spread is good including continental and indian cuisines. their rooftop dining space is amazing with spectacular views of city palace, lake pichola and jag mandir! we booked the corner table with best view for the dinner. but due to some miscommunication when we arrived we saw somebody else seated on our table. we were highly disappointed. but just to make up for it the staff arranged a table for us at a level above (i am assuming that's where the private dinners are booked ;) ) the views from there are just OMG!!!!! they even shifted the live music set up near us. this is was one of the best dinners of my life! Amazing private dinner with live music, beautiful views, delicious food and heartwarming hospitality by hotel staff!!! Could we ask for more?? This really made not just our day but the whole trip!
we had their paneer makhmali, lal maans and veg biriyani in dinner and got an amazing dessert complimentary on the house. i do not remember what the name was but it had buffalo cheese, carrot slice, gajar halwa, apple on a stick with mango juice and it tasted really amazing.
Special shout out to Nikhil at reception, Restaurant staff Chunni and Upendra and Chef Harish and the musician Suraj for giving us one of the most memorable dinner of our life and super comfortable stay :)
highly recommended for stay and dinner! would definitely love to visit again.
Loved everything about the hotel, from the spacious suite, marble bathroom, murals, roof top restaurant and the staff. The front desk staff were so gracious and we fell in love with Upinder and Chunni. They went out of their way to provide first class service and tried to anticipate our every need. Definitely go back.
We couldn't believe all the decorations when we arrived. It was like something out of a movie. Quiet, peaceful and very safe.
We stayed at the Chunda palace in february 2017. It was built to look and feel like a palace. Not sure if the bright yellow walls are really representative of Rajasthan palaces. The walls/ceilings are handpainted. There is a lot of paintings and fittings to give it an old palace atmosphere. The entrance though a lower than ground level drive way into a small lobby is misleading. The rest of the hotel is spacious.
We stayed in room 414, which had really lovely large beds. The "baywindow" adds charm to the room. Large bathrooms. Lighting in this room was poor and the windows really didnt let in too much light during the day either. But the large rooms make up for this. This room does not have much of a view. Our friends were in 412 which was smaller but a larger bathroom! The restaurant on the top floor is really nice. Walk out onto the open terrace next the restaurant and you can see the lake (which you can't see from the 4th floor rooms). Food was good but nothing great. Waiter Chunnilal made up for that with his really cheerful smile and very good service.
There was a wedding going on the morning we were leaving and the drums made quite a racket. I guess as a tourist you take that with the spirit of new place/strange customs. but it could be annoying if you have to hear this while sitting in your room, and there are a few rooms close to the banquet hall.
they don't deserve palace with there name.
I booked it through booking.com but when I reached there it was like hell. Pictures which they have shown in booking.com in actual it is totally mess.
First thing the staff is unprofessional, person who took our checking has taken us to a room whose dressing mirror was crack, how u can offer such room to your Guest.
Then they changed our room, the ambiance of the room was ok but there was seepage in the room moreover when I drained the water from there so called jetted bath tub, instead of going in drainage it all comes on the floor of bathroom because drainage was blocked .
Then we informed the same to reception, the lady available there again said that I will, change your room, this all happen with in 1hour of my check in.
I went there with my family to enjoy my holidays, but they ruin them at all. The staff is unprofessional they don't know how to deal with there guests. That's why same time called up RAMADA UDAIPUR and book my room with them. I have done my booking by sitting in reception in front of staff members but they did't respond neither tried to convince us to not leave the hotel again it shows unprofessionlizm .
In my views not to book with them.
- Amazing Hospitality: The Front Desk Upgraded us from a Palace Room to a Suite as soon as they got to know that we were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The management also organized a lovely bunch of roses and a cake for us. Thanks to Neha Bagra from the front desk for that.
- Great Decor, Vintage Look and Heritage Haveli - This property lives up to its name and really gives the feeling of a palace. the paintings and carvings are very nice and give a true feel of Rajasthani palaces.
- Size of the Suite is Huge and with Great Amenities: The Suite has a master bed room with a very comfortable and huge bed and a side sitting. It also has a sitting embedded into the wall (called Dewan in Hindi) which was very comfortable to sit and relax. Both the washrooms have a jacuzzi inbuilt bath tubs and both washrooms also have two wash basins each. The outer room has two single beds and a side sitting and also a study table and chair. MAGNIFICENT
- Breakfast: The spread is reasonably large and the Masala Omelette and Masala Dosa was fairly delicious. They can look to increase the no. of non vegetarian varieties though.
- Swimming Pools: The Hotel has a Rooftop pool and an Indoor Pool. The Rooftop Pool gives glorious 360 degree views of the city but is a little small in size. If the management can, they should try and make the indoor pool temperature controlled. The Indoor Pool is surrounded by grand and elegant royal blue paintings which makes for a great picture.
Particularly appreciate the service of Gaurav and Chunnilal at the Restaurant - very smiling and cordial both of them.
Location: Not the best but given Udaipur is a fairly small sized city, isn't much of an issue also.
The Hotel should try and include a spa at their premises - that's the only usual facility missing currently.
Overall, would rate this as one of the better hotels in all of Rajasthan and you can be assured of a brilliant and memorable stay.
