“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

One of the best places we visited. If you are a buff of glass chandeliers this is the place to go. Amazing collection of Crystal wares. Unfortunately no photography allowed to take back the memories

“Expensive but worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

We were the only ones there which was a nice change from the noisy hoards in the palace itself. Probably because we were the only fools dumb enough to stump up 400 rupees each plus the audio guide charge. Despite that, the crystal examples are fantastic. If you have any. Interest in this sort of thing, then you must go.

“A wonderful tribute to poor taste and lots of disposable wealth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

This place is a blast. The crystal collection is unique, fantastic, and either beautiful or ugly depending on your point of view. A great depiction of a bygone era of showy indulgence. The publicly-accessible rooms are elaborate and interesting. It has some of the most gorgeous public toilets we have ever seen (and their use is included in the price of admission).

The price includes "free" refreshment at the hotel. They would not credit this against a beer.

“Go only if you are diehard fan of crystalware”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

Some of the crystal collection has been displayed. There are crystal beds, thrones , chairs . But I guess the real gems are in Maharana's private collection, There could have been a better job of displaying the pieces are correct height and with righ lighting. you need to cough up Rs 555 pp for this visit which includes a drink ( you can sit by the balcony inside the palace and enjoy the view with yr coffee) and audio guide. Should have been priced at not more than Rs 100. But then everything at Udaipur is steeply priced compared to Jaipur and Jodhpur.
