Mandakini Plaza, Kanpur3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We were in Kanpur to attend a friend's anniversary and decided to stay at Mandakini Plaza. Though the hotel is located on a very busy road, the guard helped us to park our car. Though not impressive from outside, it is a comfortable hotel, and we had a nice stay here. We were given a large room, with clean beds. Locationally, it is ideal, as we could just walk across to the market and sweet shops from here.
Stayed for one night at the suite in the hotel. It was a late checkin but smoothly done. The doors are really thin and staff is too loud even at 12 in the night. There were rat droppings on the floor. Bathroom needs major overhauling as it does not meet the standards. This was the first time when i had standing breakfast of only aloo paratha in the menu at the entrance lobby of 2nd floor. It has old lifts which need to be operated carefully.
Mandakini plaza is located right in the middle of key shopping lication of Kanpur. Rooms of this hotel are big in size, suite and fantastic. It is located atvery good place. Staff are very friendly and good.
Even though the hotel is centrally located - closer to good streetfood, some shopping and other things accessible - the rating for the property doesn't get better at all. Staff that dont care, rooms that are dirty and infected with roaches, thin walls, noisy corridors, no clue of food or room service - pls keep this as the last resort, when in the city. Or if u dont care about anything and want rooms at throwaway prices, then pick this option. For us, all this got overlooked because we were in a large group and somehow decided to always stay out. Definitely not a place you would stay if traveling with kids or elderly.
I booked this hotel in the last minute through Make My Trip, during my road trip to UP. We a family of 4 (Couple and 2 grown up kids) booked the suite room on the third floor. On account of Dusshera eve road was bustling with life and getting sleep was difficult due to this noise. Room quality was descent, bathroom was above average. This can be a 2.5 star property. Staff needs to be trained and polished, I did not liked the way they entered the room for attending the phone issue, just barge in. Breakfast starts at 07:30 since we had to leave early we reached at 07:15, got some parathans and Vada in B/F. Cant ask for more since the amount I paid was a steal.
I stayed in this hotel two weeks ago on a short trip to Kanpur. Being a resident of Kanpur and Swaroop Nagar since long I had heared good about the hotel. But while booking the hotels when I went through the reviews stated here, I was quite unsure whether to book it or not. I took the chance and we stayed here for 2 nights a deluxe room on the second floor having views of the bustling street infront. The room was extremely spacious, had wonderful cooling, the bathroom was clean with hot n cold water running through 24*7. Also there was daily room cleaning services provided by the hotel. The staff was also helpful. We didn't have the buffet breakfast but the staff had been informing and requesting us for the same though. In nutshell, it is definitely not a 3-star or 4-star property neither does it claim to be one but is a good place to stay in the poshest locality at the most affordable cost offering all necessary facilities.
Hi, This is a very genuine review for Hotel Mandakini,we had a stay of pre booked rooms for which we already paid but we were charged around 12,000 rupees as a extra expenses.which included 4ooo rs. for meal(which was actually a single day breakfast) and 8000 rupees of transport charges(which was for a cab booking within city for around 6-7km).On asking the justification the hotel staff argued and tear off the bill We had one of the worst experience of our life and request everyone to avoid ay services from this hotel.
Hotel is well located in Posh Area of Kanpur.Rooms are spacious.AC was not upto the mark.Lights were not working in the bathroom.Breakfast was C grade. The driver was not provided place to sleep inspite of being assured about the same. Bad.

So o could nt been able to work Will I be back again to this hotel : Never & I won't recommend to any fellow travelers too as it is totally run down Hotel .
We booked to stay overnight on way to Varanasi. Arrived late evening but they didn't hold the room booked. My daughter looked at the only room on offer. It was filthy & disgusting. Toilet dreadful. We were moved to sister hotel in Kanpur-lucky we had a driver. We had no option other than stay. Again room awful-dirty, infested, over priced, poor facilities. Totally avoid unless you have no standards.
