“Usha Kiran Palace, Gwalior”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

Travelled to Gwalior on a business trip (Malanpur). Usha Kiran was recommended by a cousin who studied at Scindia School. The property itself is part of the palace of the Scindia family, now managed by the Taj Group. The rooms are huge, bigger than Presidential Suites in most other 5 star properties. The swimming pool is also very nice shrouded by trees.

The food was very good indeed. The Scindia Royal family is known for Maharashtrian and Nepali cuisine - both were delectable!

Room Tip: All rooms are good. However, the hotel is a maze, and travellers should preferably opt for a room ne...

This is an old palace previously owned by Royalty and as you approach the beautiful entrance you certainly recognise that fact. This palace is beautiful and whilst it doesn't have all of the mod cons of some of the modern hotels it certainly has that royal feeling and so much charm. The rooms are large and the beds also large and comfortable and the bathrooms appear quite original with deep baths which are tiled in mosaic. The pool area is modern and set aside for a relaxing few hours out of the heat of the sun and next to the pool is the spa and gym which is more that adequate for those (like me) who feel the need for a little exercise.
All in all this was certainly the most memorable hotel of them all whilst certainly not the most expensive.

Room Tip: If you are not happy then don't unpack and go back to reception.

this hotel gives you really the semsatio of how it would be a guest of the maraja!
in fact the property of the palace is still of the maraja which lives in the near palace.
the room was incredibly big and with very high ceiling that helped us to have a good sleep even with a/c off despite the hot outside temperature (we hate the noise of a/c in the night!).
the whole building itself expresses the luxury of a real maraja's residence.
the only disappointing was the breakfast not at the expected level. the only drink available was a fruit juice tha was finish after few minutes and not refilled. the cold milk was rotten and when
we asked for fresh milk the staff response was so slow and after ten minutes they brought us something like 1cc of milk!
this palce deserves a better service!

What a fantastic place. We live in Delhi but had never heard of Gwalior before.
The hotel. I must admit was part of the attraction and a monsoon package brought it within budget.
The room was huge with 2 ante rooms and a brilliant mosaic bath.
Loved the pool and staff were. Kind fixing us up with alternative transport when the train fell through - the one downside was the over attentive staff.
The fort and jain carvings were out of this world.

When you enter into the hotel gate you get a feeling that you are in an old palace. Soothing surrounding, Excellent restuarant with varieties of food and beverage choices. Taste of food was so good. The chef asks your taste and make sure that the delivered foods really make you feel delicious. Not so expensive. Worth for the money paid. Make you to go again there.

Room Tip: Choose room on the first flloor facing the lawn. May be room no. 204 can be one of the choice
