I just came across Bored of hotels? Stay in a palace
If 6-star hotels just aren't doing it for you anymore, we have the answer.
Yep, that's right. You can live like a king in a palace, and let us tell you, it's pretty awesome.
Unfortunately, the prices are a bit on the expensive side.
Are there more affordable (presumably former) palaces available as accommodation?
Affordable: ideally less than US$200 a night twin-share, or US$150 for a single. Failing that, less than US$200 per person. (The article talks about rooms at the palaces, rather than renting the entire palace out!)
