About Shiv Niwas Palace

Built in the 20th century and set within a five-minute walk of the 400-year old City Palace, Shiv Niwas Palace integrates authentic architectural heritage with modern-day living.

Whether in a room or a suite, visitors can expect to want for nothing: lavish interiors decorated with original art works, unparalleled views, and antique furniture come standard, as do flat-screen TV's and a tea/coffee maker.

Host a wedding and feel like a royal at one of the unique on-site venues. Set aside time for an Ayurvedic massage, or plan a seminar or conference, where a dedicated team will take care of every little detail.

Dining options are aplenty at Shiv Niwas Palace: Paantya serves continental, Mughlai, and local cuisine, The Pool Deck offers candle-lit dinners, Palki Khana is a European-style cafe, and Panera Bar serves after-dinner drinks.

A walk to the edge of Lake Pichola will take around 12 minutes. Other top tourist attractions, such as Jagdish Temple and Tripoliya Gate, are even closer.

Positive Reviews

Stunning views

The view from the rooms or terrace over Lake Pichola, especially at night, is something guests say they will never forget. In many cases the opposite is just as beautiful, with magnificent Palace views from the edge of the lake.

Try the terrace suite

Those who are lucky enough to be booked into a suite are smitten to have the privilege of a private terrace with a table and chairs, as well as spacious interiors that even include a large Jacuzzi. Guests come close to believing they are actual royalty, with the daily fruit basket, cookies and special turn-down service all included.

A royal ambience

The service at the hotel is like no other, and guests say it's difficult to express in words what a wonderful ambience exists throughout this spectacular property. From the moment they arrive they feel very special, with top-class treatment right until the end.

Negative Reviews

Some aspects are dated

Guests mention the dated decor, as well as many of the furniture items, and feel that with a hotel of this stature, and the price tag associated with it, there should be regular updates in keeping with the times.

Maintenance is necessary

Some bathrooms have doors that don't close properly; doors to the balcony have deteriorated to such an extent that many of them are rotten, and in several cases guests just suggest a fresh coat of paint.
