Reviewed 7 February 2014

After the livelong wish from my mother to visit India we finally went on the trip. To make this a decent experience one has to depend on nice people and places … this Hotel is one of them… it's welcoming and feels right like home! It's heritage breathes through the rooms that are modern and quite … as most of them face the inner garden with pool. The food is simple but incredible tasty … so it's perfect for a nice dinner after exploring the city! It's also a perfect starting point for walks as it's just down the road to the palace and nearby to some markets. I rather have a place with a nice calm feel to it then looking across the lake all night long. The management is very helpful in organizing tours … I can recommend Bilu as a driver (warm and kind hearted)!

I am looking forward to my next return bringing my kids as there is a park and a little Zoo just across the street!

Only thing I missed in this hotel was a cappuccino in the morning!

Room Tip: Room 12 is nice (2nd floor facing the inner garden) and next time I am going for Room 19 (also facin...

We were there for just half a day but we were very taken in by the ethnic beauty of this hotel. Gives an authentic rajasthani feel :)
The rooms are charming. The bathroom is very clean and the staff is very helpful. We did not stay long enough to have breakfast.
This hotel is around 500mts from the city palace entrance. The other entrance of the palace (near the temple) is a further 500mts. Definitely walkable.

Room Tip: No particular advice here!

We were 2 adults and our 4 year old driving around Rajasthan in Dec. We picked Mahendra Prakash based on Tripadvisor reviews and the fact that it was one of the few havelis that offered on site parking. We walked in late evening and asked for room for 2 nights but they were able to confirm only for the first night. We were offered a nice room (was actually three rooms in one, but not quite a suite) on the ground floor. On check out the next morning, they informed us that they had a cancellation and could extend our reservation. Having made alternate plans to drive to Chittorgarh in the afternoon, we did not take up the offer. We changed plans again in the evening and decided to stay on, so returned to Mahendra Prakash late evening. They were able to find a room for us again, and upgraded us as the basic category was booked. It was another nice room, this time on the 1st floor, but did not really feel like a higher category. Food was slightly above the average, with the breakfast being the best meal.

We had a beautiful top-floor room with a view of the palace to die for. One could just laze the whole day in the balcony and gaze at the palace stretched across the hillside and the mediaeval mohalla surrounding it. The restaurant had delicious Indian food. Staff was courteous, ever helpful. Room was comfortable, and had a heater which helped in winter. Location was excellent too - walking distance from the palace and Lake Pichola, auto distance from the bazaars.

Room Tip: Top-floor room if you want an unforgettable view but don't mind climbing steps.

Set just at the edge of the old city, this hotel is a good place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of town. The staff are friendly, helpful and courteous. Our room was large, clean and quite romantic with a balcony overlooking the pool and courtyard with th added bonus of city palace view. The food is pretty good but not top-end. They have filter coffee which is a great touch. The swimming pool looks very well maintained but  it was too cold to swim when we were there. 
The morning alarm call is beautiful traditional Indian music being played live cby a gentleman sat by the pool!
Both my wife and I caught a nasty cold and were in bed for a day and the staff accommodated our requests without hesitation. 
It's one of those places that people return to over and over again. 

Room Tip: Room 26 is the nicest room.

We stayed at Mahendra Prakesh for two nights and had a really lovely stay. The staff are fun, really friendly and helpful, and the surroundings are very peaceful to sit and chill out in. The tortoises in the garden are also very cute and the ability to have a range of on site massages after a long journey here were very welcome.

I stayed here last week with my family. The hotel is set in a heritage haveli and is beautiful and has a lovely atmosphere. there is a pool which we couldnt use as it was too cold and the lawns are wonderful to sit in the evenings. The buffet breakfast is the best with lots of food !! The owner Mr.Ajay was very helpful and advised us on a lot of things to do and see in Udaipur.
I can assure you that you wont be disappointed with your stay here. Also, its walking distance to the city palace and Jagdish temple.
