The address given on this site, is a little confusing. The main approach is through the road which leads you to the Dam Kothi, the State Government Guest House. The best thing about this hotel is its Location, as many travellers have pointed out. which is closed every year for repairs, near the Diwali Festival. So when you go next... More

The hotel being very close to Har ki Pauri and Dada Boudir Hotel (the bongs know what I mean ) and as it offered adequate parking, it was our natural choice ! And we stand by the selection, which fulfilled all our needs. It's such an experience to seat in the banks of river ganga at night. The staff are... More

Located well before the bustle of haridwar town, and rite on the banks of the 'Cleaner' part of the ganges. Unlike the other bank where there is no walking space, on this side of the ganges one has a long walking path... More

Great location, absolutely on the bank of river Ganges and having access to the ghat, also has a lovely lawn with sitting arrangements. If turned back to the hotel entrance you actually are facing the Chandi hill with Chandi Devi temple on the hill top. It is little away from the heart of Haridwar and takes about 20 min. walk...

Stayed for 2 nights in Hotel Alaknanda, and must say the location bang on the ganga ghats gives you a sense of peace and tranqulity. Its about 2 km from harkipauri, on a peaceful location with ganga flowing right behind the hotel. Having said that, the hotel facilities and infrastructure is falling down, the solace being the smiling and ever... More

We stayed here for one night, ultimate location with good food but requires few improvement in cleaning and hospitality. Room charges a bit high but that was compensated with hotel location but please avoid family room, it was pathetic.

This hotel saved me and my family from spending the night in our car. We had originally planned for Shivpuri- 10 KMS ahead of Rishikesh, but due to heavy rainfall and landslide we could not reach our destination and were advised to stop at Haridawar. We were traveling along with our pet- dog (we had made reservations at a pet... More
