“Clean, cool and close”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Am still staying at this haveli and so far am very happy. The initial reception from staff is professional and the haveli is clean and quite nicely designed.

The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with granite slab floors, decorative/colorful windows and rustic wooden doors and other elements. It's a bit designer and pretty cool.

Tried the continental breakfast – coffee is instant, the pancakes doughy, but the omelette is quite tasty and the service polite. The roof top restaurant is a great place to be at any time of the day. The views are substantial and you can see the Taj lake palace through some buildings in the distance.

Tuk-tuk is the advised way to travel to the hotel. Seems to cost a tourist any where between 50-80 rupees from the clock tower/palace areas, which is probably expensive.

For the price, $56AU a night, I am happy.

We were a little apprehensive when we got to Madri Haveli, as the hotel is in the heart of the city and the road leading to the hotel is small and dirty. But the staff is excellent, the view from the rooftop was of the lake and the lake palace. It is centrally located and all the tourist spots are within walking distance of the hotel. The do a decent breakfast. They offer free wi-fi which worked in the common areas, did not work in the rooms. Wish they would offer fruits as an offering at breakfast.

I tried calling the Madri Haveli people to book the hotel for my January 2014 Trip to Udaipur and found the people who are managing the booking are the rude people who do not know how to communicate with people..While I was confirming the suite charges which is not updated on their site, his response to my Q was very rude stating "Please send us the mail otherwise you will end up blaming us charges which you have stated over phone is incorrect". If the approach towards your Customer is so rude I doubt their service...will not take any chance.

Hello,
This might sound like over exaggerated but its just today that I had left City of Lakes - Udaipur but my stay at Madri Haveli left me speechless. Such hospitality & home-like feeling really made me feel not to leave the place, but I came back home with loads of awesome memories & a urge to go back again.
The approach road to the hotel is narrow but since we were on our bike we manage to get into the narrow lanes & reach Madri Haveli. The first sight we had on arrival was of the haveli being build & surrounded in the heart of the city but yet splended. We were greeted by Mr Shankar (Manager) with a Namaste & warm welcome to the Haveli. He gave us a map surround the hotel & explained us the way in & out, places to shop & others. Also informed us about the Laundry services, Hot water (which is avail 24*7, for hours beyond their stipulated time you have to request for it as they dont keep it on all the time to save electricity but once boiler is ON, 10 mins max you'll get hot boiling water) WiFi password & the area where you get good signal strength & roof top splended view restaurant hours.
Once guided towards our room # 201, you would be passing by a small indoor waterfall, Lounge area. The doors, the lock, room styling greets you with simplicity yet modern.
- Ask for room on high level & back side to get a great view.
- Breakfast is a must must at Madri, Poha is my recommendation.
- Massage is good, once a try.
- For dinner go to the top most level, the view & breeze is really nice.
- If you are love sun, get on the roof by 7 AM & enjoy the sunrise, which I did today.

Feedback -
- Please provide room slippers as the floor was too cold to walk bare feet.
- Place ash trays or ash cans in the corridor or one on each floor if possible.
- I do understand that WiFi is complimentary & the staff is doing their utmost to get that service to us, but would appreciate if it was available everywhere by just placing the routers suitable location or changing them to a higher range connectivity.

C ya'll soon again.

Regards.

Room Tip: - Ask for room on high level & back side to get a great view. - Breakfast is a must must at Mad...

We found Madrid haveli through a travel portal called chekin.in and it turned out to be a lovely place to stay. Located bang in the centre of the city, it is convenient to walk to just about most tourist spots. They have done up an old palace really well. The design is nice and different. Cute rooms. And really friendly staff. The food was great too. and the rates are quite reasonable. A must stay if you aren't looking for something über luxurious.

We had a fantastic 2 nights stay at this Haveli. We were there during the lead up to Dewali celebration and the views from the rooftop restaurant was just magnificent! The manager, Shanker, was very polite, welcoming and accommodating. Same thing could be said to the restaurant captain, Vijay Singh and his staff especially Kishand. Kishand found my bag that I left at the rooftop restaurant after some late night drinks and he delivered it to our room (everything intact) the very next morning - now that's service for you! We highly commended his honesty and we're very pleased with his attitude. Love this place and will definitely stay there again. Thank you so much guys for the wonderful time...keep up the good work!!

we booked in Madri after looking at the reviews here. Unfortunately, we saw the review posted by Dr T G W only after we'd done the booking. On a lot of issues i agree with this persons review and am quite amazed at the number of very high positive reviews received by the hotel.
The good things first:
1. Manager is helpful
2. Food is good.
3. Rooms are very clean.
4. Mattresses/ quilts provided are very good.
The REALLY bothersome stuff:
1. Deluxe rooms are small (the one we had was tiny) and not having enough daylight due to tiny windows opening out to neighboring houses. The room we got on the first night (we stayed for 3 nights) was very small and dark with very low wattage lights. No reading of books was possible. On the next two nights the manager (who's very helpful) gave us a room on the very top which is generally used as a store room. This room had enough daylight - however, was on the 4th floor adjacent to the restaurant. So the climb up after having a full day of sightseeing around Udaipur was a chore.
2. The haveli is located in the old city - further inwards. No direct lake views. All rooms either face the neighbors house (we had a neighbor outside our window doing exercises early in the morning) or a few face the very narrow road to the frontage of hotel).

Overall, though Madri haveli was good, in the context of Udaipur, i would have taken a different place had i known the above. We had gone to Udaipur for relaxation - couldn't get it in this hotel. We stayed out of the hotel most of the day 'sightseeing'. The climb up to the hotel entrance is in itself much(from the lake area), after which another few floors to the room, no possibility to read a book in the evening.
I am an architect and appreciated the work that went into renovating the haveli, however, i don't think this is a 'boutique hotel' and feel that we did a mistake in choosing this place over other, better placed (in context of the lake) hotels. This place would be good for people who want to move around a lot an only come to sleep in the room. I'd say the below 30's age group would do very well here (I'm in my early 40's badly in need of de-stressing/relaxing from work)
