Hotel Alaknanda has just about everything one would expect from a Moderate Family hotel in a heritage town. 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

Hotel Alakhnanda is good for who wants to explore Haridwar. It is on the bank of Ganga River, Services proved by this hotel, are best and it is in your budget too. They provide breakfast, lunch and dinner on your call.

The hotel location is excellent just adjacent to Ganga Ji with private ‘Ghat’ (bathing arrangement in Ganga River), ample parking space, good hospitality & good foods as well. The staffs working inside are little bit aged (age group of 45 to 55) but well trained and well behaved. The AC rooms are good in 1ST & 2ND Floor, Ganga facing... More

Never imagined that Haridwar could have a such a beautifully located hotel. An unassuming cut from the main road takes you to the hotel property. The outside and entrance will not impress you. But the moment you enter you see Ma Ganga flowing outside, and you know you are at a place that will rejuvenate you. The rooms are basic... More
