Shri Krishna Janmashtam Rest House Mathura Reviews
Great value for money Feb 25, 2011
This rest house belongs to the temple next door, Sri Krishna Janmashtam, which is the birth place of the Hindu god Krishna in Mathura. Most people visiting Mathura are here as religious pilgrims, whether foreign or local, and this place serves as an excellent resting station.
The rooms are available for 125 R per night, and there is a maximum stay of 3 nights. There are no other hidden charges.
The room is simple but very clean and comfortable, consisting of a bed, small bedside table and chair. The fan is very good and the blankets will keep you suitably warm even on chillier nights. The bathrooms and toilets are very clean and superbly maintained, which was very impressive considering the cheap price of this place. The water isn’t hot, but isn’t ice cold either and it is possible to have a decent shower there in the lukewarm water. There is even a clothes line right across the hallway where you can dry the clothes you have washed (if you do your own laundry of course). Tea, coffee and mineral water are available at decent prices.
Checkout policy is 24 hours (e.g., if you arrive at 11am today, you have to check out by 11am tomorrow!).
I really think this is an excellent place to stay and even more so considering the cheap price. The only downsides are that:
- there are no power points in the room (you can use the several ones located in the hallway, but you’d have to man your electrical item during this time);
- there is no lock on the room (you will need your own padlock for the room, but I’ve never known any traveller not to have one of these!); and
- the temple music in the early morning can be a bit loud (which is ok if you are a heavy sleeper or an early riser).
Minor grumbles aside, I thought this was excellent value for money and would definitely stay here again if I was in Mathura.
