“Nice and simple place for the family, though not trendy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The place is nice and easily accessible, close to the bus stand. The food is good and served with warmth. The area is spacious and children can enjoi playing around. The rooms are dimly lit and the bathrooms can do with an upgrade -- a little too dark and old style. The place has hired some entertainers in the evenings and the shows aregood and well enjoyed.

Room Tip: The place ie overall very good and the views are good form the inner side rooms - rooms facing the c...

This is a Lodging and boarding type place on the expensive side for the comforts you get. It is primarily for folks looking to eat Gujarati food at least twice a day everyday of their stay. So naturally, most of the residents are Gujaratis or from Mumbai. Also, the pricing is such that lodging alone is less optimal than food and lodging. Hotel is unique in that, you get hot water only till about 9am in the morning and the check-in and checkout time are around 8.00 - 8.30am, primarily to suit bus-travellers from Mumbai. We dont know if that is the norm in Mahabaleshwar.

It is well located for taxi rides and is next to a very nice park. It has a sports room for children to play table-tennis or carroms. Kids have a nice play area but need to be supervised. On average, the staff are quite responsive except at lunch when it is terribly crowded.

The quality of Gujarati food served was an algebraic variable. Some days it was very good and some days some items were average and oily. They do have south-indian snacks at breakfast.
We found the hotel a bit expensive. I mean, if we compare it with a similarly priced one in Goa this one in Mahabaleshwar was definitly not in the same league, nor as well maintained. At Rs 7000/$120 a day (including food) one has high expectations which it did not match up to at all. But there are not too many alternatives in Mahabaleshwar unless you have a car of your own or have a genuine reference.

Room Tip: Pick a room close to the pool and upstairs.

Hotel Rajesh is right at the heart of Mahabaleshwar. Such a convenient location. Food is excellent and service was very good. The hotel staff are very courteous and helpful. The room was in excellent condition and maintained well. house keeping was good. Surroundings are also good. Ideal for families. Shopping area as right behind the hotel. Only problem was the breakfast timings was a bit to early when one is on vacation. Even the hot water service was available only from 7-10 in the morning. Hotel should improve this as during cold seasons Hot water timings is too less .
No complains about the food at all.. Awesome service and quality of food. Overall enjoyed my stay.

Stayed from december 22 2012 to 26th december 2012

We stayed in Hotel Rajesh from 22 Dec 12 to 25 Dec 12 in a mid-category AC rooms with bath tubs...We were 14 of us with 4 family rooms booked

Rajesh is one of the oldest hotels in Mahabaleshwar mainly known for its great location which is close to the market and for its great food. Being it very old...the rooms really need renovations and we were disappointed with its worn out interiors...

Breakfast was superb with nice spread..but taste of lunch and dinner was Ok although the spread was good. This is my family opinion and not of mine alone...The hotel needs to revive its old food quality

Service of people is really nice and we were very happy about it...they even helped us with hot water at 12 in the night when one of our families reached the hotel...they met our every need with a happy face...

So we rate this hotel nice....but would be more happy with rooms getting better...cheers...happy holidays

Hotel Rajesh is right in the heart of Mahabaleswar. The rooms are pretty good and the food is excellent. The hotel staff is very helpful and attend you promptly. The Mahabaleswar market and the lake are within walking distance from this hotel. The hotel has a small swimming pool and a gymnasium as well.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the front... eg... 36 to 40...

We stayed at Hotel Rajesh and were accompanied by infant. The staff was very co-operative and prepared special food on request for the infant.

We thought of having food from outside, however the Gujarati style food in-house was so nicely cooked that we finally opted for meal package offered by Rajesh.

It is also conveniently located to market (Just 2 minutes walk) and is also nearby taxi stand.

Room Tip: If you are planning for a good Gujarati-style food & good ambiance check out Hotel Gautam as wel...
