“This hotel deserves better reviews (though its already #1)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2011

This hotel is highly underrated I feel. Its spotless clean. Its very very conveniently located, and the rooms/food are excellent. Some people here faced a couple of issues, but it seems like vindication really.

Though I loved the lovely decor, the large lobby and feeling of religious revelation, nevertheless, my only feedback is related to the room service. Make it a little more precise. Everytime we called, they said - it would be 40-45 mins. So we went to outside for a 10-15 mins walk. The food/tea, we are told was delivered in 15-20 mins. Sometimes, it was the other way round. The same tea order sometimes took 20 mins, and sometimes 40. but this is ME STRICTLY NITPICKING. The servers were well trained and very very nice!

My girlfriend and I passsed two very comfortable days and nights at the Radha Ashok. The staff are warm and polite - and ably led by the charming and hospitable manager Vipin. Indeed, he sourced Indian sweets for our breakfast on hearing that we had particular favourites. In truth, nothing was too much trouble for Vipin; indeed, he made a point of taking interest in our travels and both facilitated our journeys and maximized our enjoyment.
While we stayed in the lowest cost room, we were surprised by its spaciousness and (given our prior trips to India) the absolute lack of any insects or mosquitoes!! Both the room and hotel were spotlessly clean. The pool and its gardens are an absolute delight - with fragrant plant life and the occasional visit from playful monkeys. We ate in the restuarant on both nights and I can honestly say the chicken kebabs and skewers of paneer were the best I've ever tasted. The kitchen staff are clearly very competent and reflected a very positive experience at the hotel generally. I would not hesitate to recommend Radha Ashok and I would sincerely like to return as the surrounding area has so much to offer. My only regret is not seeing more of Mathura-Vrindavan!

We go to Vrindavan quite regularly and we always have our lunch at the Radha Ashok. We find they give us excellent personalised attention and great vegetarian food, very fresh and not spicy. The waiters are polite and smiling.
Only place I feel they could improve is the bathroom in the lobby.

just returned from another trip through india - we have each been 4 times.

a wonderful experience let down by our stay in the radha ashok hotel in mathura.

the room was apparently "deluxe" but was grimey, riddled with insects and the bathroom was in such a deplorable state that neither of us could bring ourselves to bathe in it.

this coupled with the extremely rude floor manager when we checked in at night, and the poorest breakfast we had experienced in india as well as blood-stained sheets and dead insects in the bed made it an experience we would not want to repeat.

the only positive that could be commented on was when one of us needed help dressing in a sari - and this was freely and willingly given by a senior person at the hotel

yes yes they may be the architectual marvel of mathura because of the staircase etc but it is the quality of room that lets it down badly and the room is where one sleeps - not on the staircase!!

i cannot recommend this hotel to anyone and had no hesitation in reporting the pathetic nature of this place to the tour company and showing them the video i took of the filthy room.

we will not be returning to this hotel

The Radha Ashok is an excellent choice by travelers & tour Operators alike for Elegantly well appointed Spotless & Clean rooms, High Quality food in its Restaurant, Smiling Staff and Value for Money Services. It is a priority choice of all visitors & tour operators for their Mathura – Vrindavan itinerary. We sincerely fail to make any sense of the issues raised on this particular review.
