“The upstairs lounge is the best bit!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

This hotel has a great location, and a lovely lounging area on the rooftop. The rooms are fine but the bathrooms aren't particularly pleasant. From the cafe I would recommend the chai tea and I would advise against the "sizzlers" - a somewhat bizzare sizzling plate of still-not-quite-sure on a bed of lettuce. It basically went untouched.

Room Tip: Take a look at a few rooms before you settle on one - some are better than others!

Possibly a hotel that is resting on its good write-up in the Lonely Planet guide, it is still not a bad option; best bit is the lounging area up on the roof, where one can relax and have a drink (the lemonana drink is particularly refreshing, lemon and mint). Clean but basic otherwise - the air-conditioning was a bonus, and only cost an extra 200R a night.

Minerwa was the first place my boyfriend and I stayed in India. Clean with good food (they specialise in 'Special' lassies), amazing views and professional staff. It can get noisy - the door to our room seemed very thin at times and the hotel itself is on a busy road - but I think that happens where ever you stay in India. Overall, a place I would stay in again.

The hotel was quite empty when we have checked in and they told us that it is off-season. Because of this and since the room was on a lower level and quite dark, we have asked for a discount but they told us that 500 INR (Fan) is already a discount-price as the room would cost 800 INR otherwise. We were not sure if this is true as prices in Lonely Planet seemed to be lower but it is not unusual that the increase prices after a recommendation in LP. Nevertheless, it seemed to be a good price/value ratio in totel.

The have a very chilled rooftop restaurant (2 floors) where WiFi is available (good connection). Meals and drinks are tasty and decent value. During the day you can sit on the covered floor where they have cushions and cute little tables. When it is dark it is a great idea to sit at the highest level. Even though it wasn't booked out, here were always many people hanging out so it's easy to mean other travellers.

Location is great as everything is close by. We could store our luggage for free even though they were a little unflexible about staying longer in the room (check out is at 10am).

The agency next door seems to belong to the hotel. They do not look very professional but they managed to organise train tickets to Mumbai on a short-notice (most of the trains where booked out as it is holiday season) and we just had to pay 50 INR more per ticket. Great help!

The Hotel as it stands is a bit dated, and the rooms are just okay. The Toilet did not have a lid, and our bed did not have a top sheet, but we asked for one as well as extra pillows, and no problem. Also, be advised that as of now there is no Elevator/Lift. Initially had a hot water problem, but staff promptly corrected. Wifi reception as good. Not really any view from rooms, but they do have a nice Roof-top restaurant with very good views. The Staff were generally accommodating, and we had no room rate/money issues as others have reported. The hopeful news, is that they are building a new Annex next door that will be attached, and reportedly will have a Lift, and it appears will also have better views. They say it will be ready by July. I would definitely say the Annex would be recommended for a Stay, depending on price.

Located in the very centre of Udaipur (as you can see in the picture), the Hotel is very good - considering Indian standards. The Roof-Top Restaurant offers a panoramic overview of the city and the lake where it is possible to use the free wi-fi internet line. Great breakfasts, excellent DAL!

The power-points in my room had problems so I couldn't charge my smart phone. THEY ASKED ME to leave my phone in the restaurant to charge, and when I went back after an hour, it was gone!! The exact area where the phone was charged was not in the region under the surveillance camera, and it seemed that only European tourists were in the surroundings. So it could only be stolen by those who know how to avoid the surveillance camera, hence THE STAFF.
They agreed to compensate when I was there, but it never happened, and they ignored all my follow-up emails!
DO NOT STAY. SLEEPING ON STREETS WOULD BE BETTER.
