It's a historical place so you feel great about staying there. However, facilities could be more specially for kids and family.

It was lovely and so convenient being right next the palace museums and old town. The only thing I would say is that the sunset restaurant food was not 5* standard. The shiv niwas restaurant was much better.

              A beautiful hotel in a magic setting. Make sure you upgrade to the suites; the additional expenditure is returned triple fold as the palace rooms are the old servants quarters. Wonderful to stay in the grounds of the City Palace and to walk through without the crowds when lit up at night.

              The friendliest and most helpful hotel staff I have ever encountered. Great location, a tranquil oasis in the city with easy access to all tourist sites. The pool area is a great place to relax and unwind after a hot day of sightseeing and a wonderful place to eat at night; the photos do not do it justice, it is simply stunning in the evening/nighttime. .The food is great too, top marks for the Laal Maas and the Paneer A special mention to Bazerin (apologies if I’ve not spelt his name correctly) and the Panera Bar. It one of the most atmospheric places I’ve ever had a drink in, a beautiful room overlooking the lake and Jagmandir island and if you visit in summer, to view the clouds of bats and monkey colonies in the trees below. Bazerin, the barman, will take care of your every need and provide a potted history of the Palace and Maharanas. Well worth a trip!

              The hotel itself is pretty good but it has one major problem: the food is terrible. When we were there a number of people were complaining; Indian and western. We had two meals there and decided to return the Indian food on the second occasion as it was of a mediocre standard. The staff didn’t seem to be interested as to why this was happening which in itself tells you something about the hotel. We paid £270/ night and to be honest it’s worth half that in our opinion.

              Staying at Shiv Niwas is nothing short of magical. One of the true highlights of my whirlwind trip through India, the lake-facing suite was truly palatial—with top-notch service to match. The suite's sprawling layout easily accommodated three, and included a huge dressing room, drawing room, servant's quarters, bathroom and ante-bathroom. In addition to the enormous balcony, which afforded spectacular views of Lake Pichola and the breathtakingly beautiful Taj Lake Palace, the bathroom itself featured a glassed-in balcony. Truly stunning. Already planning my return visit!

              The Reception staff needs to do a better job in making sure that the guests are well catered. They were almost indifferent. It would have been nice if they had enquired if we needed any assistance in our planning/sightseeing, etc. For instance, it would have been great if we had got some assistance in The City Palace museum and boat riding tickets since these were on the same campus. The Reception needs to do more than just check-in.

              (1) The view from our room / balcony to across the lake (2) The customer service (3) The location within the City Palace complex
              We couldn’t have asked for more, allocated the perfect terrace suite in the hotel with view across the lake including the Lake Palace immediately in front. A great place to watch the sunset. The suite itself was clean in white marble and attractive furniture to match. The assistance and service from the guest relations was extremely courteous and helpful. The location of the hotel within the City Palace complex was perfect for visiting the City Museum and walking into town. The only negatives were that the restaurant was a little basic and rather tawdry/shabby in décor. The hotel also does not offer any accommodation for drivers, but they provided names of hotels where you can find accommodation for them including own room, dinner, breakfast and hot water in town for about 600 rupees.

              I love that the hotel was relatively quiet when we booked in during the shoulder season. Having read the reviews, I booked a terrace suite with a lakeside view. This was worth every cent as we spent most of our free time lounging on the terrace as we watched the sun set on the lake and had breakfast on the balcony, enjoying the early morning calm. The staff are amazing and there's nothing they could not accommodate for us. Go to the inhouse bar and chat to the bartender who has worked there for more than 30 years. He has met some famous people in his time :)
