“Very good hotel in the Budget Range, Great Value !”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

The hotel is divided in the Deluxe rooms block, the Superior and Standard rooms block and the Dining section beside the pool. The rooms are very cozy and clean, though a bit small. Overall the hotel is very clean and tidy. The hotel offers very little view of the outside city, except for the Udaipur City Palace views from the rooftop rooms (amazing during the evenings when the palace lights up !). It’s Superior (few) and Deluxe rooms get the views of the Haveli’s lawns and pool. The view is beautiful. The atmosphere is very relaxing and peaceful. Hotel staff is very helpful.

This hotel is placed very close to Udaipur’s major tourist attractions such as The City Palace (500meters), Vintage Cars Museum (where one can also enjoy Rajasthani Thali food) and Garden Restaurant, Gulab Bagh, Jagdish Mandir (2-3 km), Ganghor and Lal Ghat (2-3km, must visit for the overall views during the evenings), Bagore Ki Haveli (2-3km), Hathi Pol market (4-5km). Given the cool weather we covered all these places walking and immersing ourselves in the colours of Udaipur. Saheliyon Ki Badi (garden), Karni Mata Mandir (and ropeway, good overall city views), Fateh Sagar Lake and Maharana Pratap Smarak (must visit for the overall views during daytime and the evenings) are little far and may be visited in a vehicle.

There is no room service (food & dining) in this hotel and all meals have to be taken in the dining room or the tables in the surrounding lawns. During winters this is fine in the mornings and afternoon but can be little irritating in the evenings when you’ve come after a long day city tour. We were also struck by the absence of proper doors and no heating systems in the Dining room. Having visited Udaipur in mid-Jan, when it gets quite chilly in the evenings and early mornings, dining was definitely not the best of the experiences, though the dining staff was very helpful and eager to help guests in all manners possible. Afternoon lunch on one of the lawn tables in highly recommended, so is a little late breakfast along-with live Santoor being played (hotel arranges Santoor musician by the pool during some of the mornings).

The hotel has car parking facility. Our car was safe and we felt happy that it was cleaned on daily basis (without any prior instructions by us on the same). We stayed in Superior room; Rooms 14 and 12 have best views (Superior rooms), we were lucky to stay in one of them. Overall a good experience.

Room Tip: Superior Rooms: 14 & 12 have good pool & lawn views Deluxe rooms: All rooms have pool &...

It is very good hotel situated at prime location. The property is very neat & clean, beautiful and well maintained. It has very nice pool. There are chairs & tables in the the garden adjoining swimming pool where one can relax and can have breakfast or dinner. We arrived very early in morning and to our delight we were allowed to check in without any extra cost. The staff is extremely good, courteous & polite, always eager to help, plan your itinerary, travel requirements etc. Special thanks to Mr Kailash who was always smiling and ready to offer any assistance.
One advise to management, they should provide tea bags, milk pouches, sugar pouches on demand from guests. This allows guests to have tea/coffee in the room at odd hours when restaurant is closed. It does not cost much, however the hotel as a policy, provides the same only once on your arrival & does not replenishes for the entire duration of your stay
Anyway overall a lovely place & definately stay there once again

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms facing swimming pool are best

This hotel, popular with internationals and Indians alike, is a charming character house ("haveli") set in a protected compound with gardens. Lovely swimming pool. A peaceful retreat from the noisy road. The rooms very tastefully decorated and clean. Wifi was included in the price but breakfast for two was 450 Rp. extra. Breakfast is simple but taken in a lovely open-air room or if the weather permits at one of the lovely garden tables. Especial high point is the friendliness of the staff! You can tell this is a family run place!

We paid 3,750 Rp. for a "deluxe" room with breakfast (would have been 3,300 w/out bfast).

We really enjoyed our stay at Mahendra Prakesh.

It was the first hotel in India where I didn't sleep with my earplugs as it was surprisingly quiet, even though it is in the middle of town. It is an old, historical building converted to a hotel, so it has lots of character with a nice pool, chairs and tables in the garden and a few good sun beds. Although the water in the pool itself was rather cold ;)

It's located a bit further away from the palace/temple (15 min walk or 5 min by auto rickshaw) but we found there our little oasis in Udaipur. We arrived very early (5am) but we were allowed to check in anyway for no extra cost, which we were very grateful for. The room itself was extremely spacious with nice window sittings, kettle and a great shower. Staff was very helpful and the restaurant served good food. We especially enjoyed breakfast in the garden with good quality food (homemade jams) and live music every morning. It was a real treat to be woken up by live music coming from the pool area.

Also - there is a great shop just outside the hotel with good quality clothing, bedding etc - if you like shopping in India - be warned and do not enter without cash :)))

After having a rather bad experience at another property in Udaipur a day prior, we booked Mahendra Prakash for a day and this one indeed came like a breath of fresh air. The staff at the reception was extremely cordial and polite, the pool and lawn were well maintained and I liked the small library rack kept in the common area where I could do my bit of reading.
The breakfast spread was decent (not very exorbitant) but what mattered more was the fact that the service at all the time came with a smile.

Contrary to what jatinsachdeva2002 has said in his review below, I found the staff very prompt in doing things ! May be they were counseled by the Hotel management to improve their performance after he posted the review ! :D

Anyway, I definitely wont mind staying here again.
