  • Not much to see, plenty pictures and very few rooms to see. The biggest percentage belongs to the hotel and visitors aren't allowed. We didn't enjoyed the visit, a bit af a waste of time. 
  • A must visit when in Jodhpur, place is well looked after 100 rupees entrance worth it, just for vintage car collection. 
  • The museum is really small with very few things on display. The fun part is the vintage car collection. The grounds are well kept and has a good view of the city. Can be easily done in less than an ho...  more »

  • The absolute best service and superior quality in the world. A one of a kind experience to live in a real king Palace and feels the royalty. There is nowhere else in the world that we have had such an experience. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. staff is cooperative and friendly, These guy really deserves appreciation. The rooms are spacious and well decorated
  • I did NOT stay at the hotel. I toured the museum. This review if about the museum and not the connected hotel. As a museum, it was quite a disappointment compared to the many others we have seen in India. It felt like a cash grab to supplement your the hotel revenue. Some parts are interesting, however, it is small and the admission charge is excessive for what you see.
  • Must visit in jodhpur. Nice neat and clean palace 6 rooms showing maharaja's old collections which is open for all, around 10% of areas. Around 20% area is for hotel. You can get rooms from 40k to 400k Remaining part of palace is occupied by maharaja saheb. Beautiful place. Also visit vintage car collection near ticket counter.
  • IT'S A HERITAGE PROPERTY. SUPERB PALACE TO VISIT. NICELY MAINTAINED. THE CURRENT ROYAL HIGHNESS OF JODHPUR STILL RESIDES WITH FAMILY AT THE SAID PALACE.
  • A must visit palace. Though only a part of it open to the public yet its a great piece of architecture. The view from the hill on which it is situated is a vast expanse and very refreshing. The vintage cars on display are an additional treat.
