Being a solo female traveler, i found MVT very safe and nice place to stay in Vrindavan. Everything was nice in the guesthouse. Not only the room was clean, but the whole guesthouse was very clean and full of greenery. Other plus points noticeable are:

a) Very near to Shri Banke Bihari Temple, Prem Mandir and Brijwasi Sweets Shop.
b) E-Rickshaws are available at the gate of MVT as well, although they are bit costly. If one can just walk 100 meters, then he/she can take e-rickshaw from main road which are very cheap
c) MVT Restaurant serves variety of food ranging from simple homely Daal/Roti to International cuisines. I found MVT restaurant better than 'Govinda's' Restaurant in terms of food variety, taste and staff attending to you at the restaurant.

This hotel cum palace lookalike is a very very beautiful property with big gardens landscaping fountains and big decent rooms and i have never seen such a humble staff in any of the property I visited before. They are always more than willing to look after their guest requirements.
The location is super perfect. ITs just behind iskon temple and have it's own private big parking too.
The restaurant is reasonable and serves all kind of cusines.
I can't wait to come here again and again... 🙏👏👏

Whole place has been refurbished since my last visit 2 years ago, they now have an elevator which is a big bonus!

Stayed in one of the new rooms which are comfortable enough. Toilet is really high up off the ground which is strange, my legs dangle down with no chance of reaching the floor. Had to lift my son up to pee!

None of the mod cons (phone in room, fridge) worked anyway! Although they were emphasised upon check in and I was reminded of them a few times during my stay. So things like ‘housekeeping’ are non existent.

Toilet blocked after first day (no I’m not putting paper down it!) and no hot water.

Give them laundry at your peril! Mine all came back soaking wet, not smelling very clean and pretty battered.

My issue with this place is that they shouldn’t be selling it as something it isn’t. That’s annoying. Go with expectations of this being a run of the mill Indian guesthouse and you won’t be disappointed.

Have to say this was the worst place we stayed during our time in india on this occasion.

This was not a guest room... it was an apartment owned by one of the devotees. It was simply let by mvt.

As we walked in we really wanted to walk straight out again. ALL the storage cupboards in the apartment were padlocked as they clearly contained the belongings of the owner. The place was freezing cold, though they did provide a heater. We had to ask for towels, tea bag, cups and even soap... when we told them there was no soap in the dispenser, they said we don't top it up as people make a mess.

We came back to the room after an hours walk and found the kitchen flooded as the fridge had broken down and all the ice had melted all over the floor. An attendee came with a mop and soaked up the water into the sink. Then he made no effort to clean the sink. They wouldn't move us to another room, the room smelt for the two days we stayed. We would never stay with mvt guest house ever again and would recommend others to think twice before doing so.

I have stayed at MVT couple of times and I believe I am qualified to review it.

Pros: Excellent location, Adjacent to Sri Krsna Balaram temple, Beautiful garden, Great restaurant

Cons:

1. Impolite & terribly rude staff at the reception. Not at all welcoming, would never consider you a guest or devotee. Hardly say 'Hare Krsna'. They act if they do charity to visitors by handing over room key. Srila Prabhupad never subscribed such conduct. I am wondering if MVT mgmt. is cognizant about it. The staff has total potency to spoil your devotional mood.

2. If you reach before 1 pm (check in time), they act so adamantly & don't allocate the room despite being available. Once, the guy demanded Rs. 500 when I asked for an early check-in however they don't write it anywhere. Seems to be money minting thing.

3. Poorly maintained rooms, smelly & full of dampness, unstable furniture, dirty bedsheets. At the same time, priced exorbitantly.

Conclusion: You should stay here ONLY if the sole objective of your visit is to be in Krsna Balaram Temple to attend each aarti. Otherwise, avoid it.

This is the closest you could get to ISKCON Krishna Balram temple. I attended Mangal Aarti all the days I stayed there, proximity to the temple and the wonderful food at the restaurant was a big relief, we were able to devote all our attention to Krishna versus worrying about food or transportation. The parking for our car was very next to the guest house in a gated lot. The front office staff was extremely humble and provided us prompt service whenever we needed anything like extra sheets or herbal tea bags or mineral water.

It’s a great hotel to stay. We really liked the humble nature of Mr Acharya. His advices were particularly great.

Comfortable and cozy style of accommodation and gardens are very scenic and you can be quite close the nature and the temple.

Typical guest house vibe in a small city.
Large rooms, clean linen, and great service and value for money.
The instructions that the staff provided on what to do and what to beware of (especially the monkey menace) were very useful.
The food at the Restaurant was delicious. Satvik food. The kitchen is managed by sevadaars.
Clean, hygienic and delicious.
