“Luxury!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2011

A very nice place to spend you weekend! The rooms we had got were huge and truly exemplified luxury! The bath tubs and toilets were redone and it was truly going back in time. A very well kept lawn greets you! When we had visited the hotel was undergoing a few renovations and hence there were a few things out of place. Service however is something that needs to improve. A bit too slow - possibly it is because of the location rather than the hotel group. Worth spending a couple of weekends every year at the place!

A very nice hotel and I would say the best in Gwalior. The food is great and the rooms are very nicely priced for a Taj hotel providing a lot of amenities and warmth to the guest. Had a wonderful time.

What a stunningly beautiful hotel! It took us a bit to find it, but thanks to our guide and many requests for directions, we rolled in around nine p.m.

The service was amazing; one of our group was ill during the stay but she received so much personal attention that we never had to worry about her.

The rooms are huge. Simply massive in comparison to anything else we stayed at in India. Lovely sitting area in addition to the bedroom, huge dressing room and massive toilet area with stunning marble shower and tub.

The restaurant was lovely -- gorgeous breakfast with excellent freshly made omlettes and the a la cartes were delicious.

Gardens were exquisite and you could easily spend a few hours sitting beneath various trees.

And, I had no problem changing traveller's cheques at the front desk -- always a bonus!

I would highly recommend the Usha Kiran to all.

Everybody in the Hotel is quite kind and gentle.
Everything is clean and the restaurant is great. We have eaten outside as the interior has no air conditioning and is rather hot.
Shame that there are glasses - unmovable - dividing the dinning room from the outside.
The waiter was Mr Santosh who suggested us good Indian food.
The Housekeeping in charge at the moment was a young Mr Jasil Ponnachan who was very kind and attentive.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to the garden. On the ground floor may also be a better choice.

I have been to this hotel many times and my Journey with Taj began here. I felt the warmth in their welcome and even though initially they took some time to adjust things to my taste they were very prompt and eager in their efforts. Food is just fantastic and with a Gwalior Sitar Player the dinner becomes regal. Rooms are big and some are with very good view. So check out before selecting one. It is next to the famous Jai Vilas Palace and one can visit their with minimum time to spend

Room Tip: Check out before taking rooms. The decor and view changes from room to room
