Stay was good. But do not recommend eating in this place. Unlike some of the other Ghat roof top resturants, it is not clean nor maintained.

Great view with terrible service

Stayed at Palace on Steps for 3 nights and had a mixed experience. The views are great from the river facing rooms. Even the rooftop restaurant has a great view of the river (beware the monkeys). Pros: a. Great location- next to the ghats. They even have a stair case to the ghats. b. Great view- If you have a river facing room. Sunrise from the balcony or on the ghats is an awesome experience and should not be missed. Cons: a. Rooftop Restaurant- Very poor service; below-par food. Avoid it. b. Rooms- Almost all rooms are broken and needs servicing. Pretty evident that the hotel management does not care. The blankets are stained and am not sure if they are ever cleaned! c. Service- Terrible. The hotel management is run by a bunch of crooks. They will try to fleece money out of you at every pretext. They tried to give me a basement room with no view even though I had pre-booked and paid for Maharaja Room (don't expect a palatial experience even in a Maharaja room). Had to get into a verbal altercation with them to get the rooms with views. I overheard the reception guy charging 30% extra to a tourist from Singapore for the same room which I had rejected! Am not advising anybody against staying at this hotel. Its a personal choice but please make sure you pre-book the room before you get in this place. One might be taken for a ride otherwise. Room Tip: Only choose rooms with river view.
