Padmini Palace Hotel Reviews (723)
In the month of December 2016 I went to Udaipur with family on my holiday trip.The destination of the place was excellent and the location of the hotel was good that was convenient.The appearance of the hotel was good which was looking normal only.The front office of the hotel was good they behaved well and I booked my stay through online. The overall services in the hotel were good that was fast and the room facility was average that was congested. There was food facility that was good.There was wifi facility in the hotel that was good.They hadnt arranged any cab facility in the hotel.I was comfortable during my stay and I will suggest this hotel to other upcoming travelers too.
This is by far most pathetic hotel (Lodge would be right word) I ever visited with family. I booked it after checking reviews at TripAdvisor. I always do this before booking any hotel and never before I had any problems. However it was totally opposite. I am sure these guys are using dummy accounts to manipulate their ratings to con innocent travelers. TripAdvisor must check this. You can understand my frustration that I am immediately writing this review after leaving the hotel. Do not judge by landscape pictures provided at TripAdvisor, use your instinct. Now discuss the reasons for such bad review. The lodge (wonâ€™t use hotel) is highly overpriced and does not provide any facility as per the charges. We booked 2 Standard Rooms by cleartrip at exorbitant prices without breakfast for 2 families. At the time of check-in, the receptionist told that we did not mention about children. We told him that our kids are around 5 years hence no extra facility is required and there is no breakfast in our package. He unnecessarily argued that if we had selected kids, our prices would be higher than what we paid! Till date we have never got this kind of response in our travel in India or Abroad. The attitude of the receptionist was such pathetic that if we hadnâ€™t paid prior, we would have left immediately. The lodge does not have a separate parking and you have to look by yourself if area outside hotel is full. Anyhow we went to the room but room was shockingly small, barely accommodating a Queen Size Bed (6X5). So we changed the room to a Deluxe one by paying 1000 extra. We could not get much relief apart from slightly bigger room (10â€™X11â€™ roughly) with a King Size Bed (6X6) with 2 6X3 mattress. Room was clean to our relief with a chair-table occupying remaining space. Floor was stained. The blanket provided was very old without cover. Bathroom was very old fashioned with rusted taps and shower. The towels which they provided were stained due to long time use. For everything they were ready to charge us. I am attaching photos of â€œTerms and Conditionsâ€ present in the room. You would know the truth! Luggage is your responsibility, you canâ€™t use your hair dryer in room and so on. My wife asked for an electric press for which they told that we have to get it done through them only by paying whatever they ask for. I asked for a comb as I never carry one in my travels. I was send a dirty, used comb. Can you imagine this? When I asked the same receptionist he told that it was not mentioned in the list of provided items. Which hotel in the world mentions that it provides a comb! Staffs were respectful but manner less. Whenever they came to room, they simply entered by knocking once and without asking for permission. Food at restaurant was ok but only veg. Location is ok but if you are in Udaipur, please book a hotel at any of the lakes. To sum up, do not opt for this hotel with family. The class of this lodge is very bad and you should avoid if your standards are ok. They are tarnishing name of Rani Padmini. (I know the hotel staff will certainly reply to my comments in very negative way, but you trust my opinion and my plight).

I liked the services of this hotel and the manager of this hotel was very nice person. behaviour of the staff members was very helpful. Overall, my experience in the hotel was good. Location wise, the hotel was conveniently located and it was situated at 1 hour drive distance from the Railway Station. I was able to reach the hotel comfortably without any problem. Surrounding of the hotel was pleasant. Interior and exterior look of the hotel was modern style. There was no confusion while allocating and vacating the room. I do not know about activity because I did not spend too much time in the hotel. They provided only veg food there and it was very good. Cost of the food was reasonable. Many varieties were available there in veg food. Interior of the room was nice and also room was comfortable for three members. Washroom, pillow and other things were in clean condition and in fact staff of the hotel was cleaning the room daily. TV, geyser and other necessity items were available there and functioning properly. They should expedite their food services. This is a recommendable hotel for others travellers. Money spend there was worth.
