Best place to relax

Construction with superb display of architecture, must see place. The service offered by the people was good, the stores in the palace were attractive and books were on display.

It's a hotel now

We went after so many recommendations but as we entered in premises, got to know that it has been conveying hotel and we were allowed to see only lobby area. Couldn't able to see anything properly. Wastage of time but the palace is real great property. Nicely maintained, only giving points because of the palace feeling.

Best for artistic experience

It is away from the city and city bus service is not there to Lalitha Mahal Palace. It is a hotel and sightseeing is allowed, best for the people who seek artistic experience.

Good place for Art enthusiasts

This palace got some of the finest real paintings of Raja Ravi Varma and other prominent painters. The paintings in this palance especially that of Raja Ravivarma are like real people standing in front of you, so real and so natural. Good place for art students and students who are interested in real art.

Awesome infrastructure but poor maintenance

This hotel cum heritage building has an awesome and huge infrastructure and a garden. However, since the maintenance is in government hand, you can find emphasis on cleanliness and service is very ordinary. Food served in restaurant is also ordinary.
