Chunda Palace is really just a delight. We were thrilled with the quality, cleanliness, and staff of the palace. We paid $120 and I would say the rooms could easily go for 3-5x that somewhere in US or Europe. Enormous room with 4-poster bed, separate sitting room and a really nice bathroom about the size of my home living room (they upgraded us, though peeking in the normal rooms, I could tell they were quite nice, too). High end bedding, spotless bathroom, turn-down service with cookies, nice breakfast buffet included. The hotel staff was exceedingly nice-- for example, one took us for a tour of the palace and even politely refused a tip at the end.
The palace itself is fairly new (1970s) and was just converted into a hotel in 2010-- everything is in very good shape. Marble is everywhere (the family owns a marble business) and the common spaces are really over the top, decorated heavily with colored tiles and mirrors. The views are awesome from the rooftop pool and restaurant. Hotel is a bit away from the tourist sites, but it's so lovely you'll want to spend a full evening there anyway.
Only slightly negative thing involved the restaurant. Though they had amazing food (get the chicken tikka masala! best we had the entire trip) and views, the prices were 50-100% higher than other nice places we ate at during the trip. Still worth it though for the views, but be prepared. We paid 4000 rupees ($80) for two appetizers, two entrees, four cocktails, and water.
