Location is really great. The property is on the mall road, rooms are small and service is bit slow. Domino's is next door.You can't book this property thru any travel portal. Its a kind of best option for <Rs 5500 budget.

We went to the hotel restaurant for lunch and didn't find good service, food only soup,dal,rice and roti were tasteless and so dry that you could find better taste at a roadside Dhaba. You can give the restaurant a miss for sure..

Great views of the lake, but unfortunately in the peak season the incessant honking of cabs on the mall road ruins the experience. The booking is done directly with the hotel, and the staff is very helpful - I booked in advance and got a good room. The rooms are cozy, but aren't well lit. Also, it was a warm... More

The most amazing hotel in Nainital. Be whatever angle rooms, food, service, everything is superb. If u want a royal treatment that's the place to stay. The only hotel in Nainital which will even serve you food at the middle of the night.

Location wise excellent, otherwise an average hotel. Stayed from 23rd to 25th May,2014. Service is prompt and the food quality is average. Rooms are small and you can,t expect quality rooms even at the high price you paid, Better options. are available at this price.Even than, staying in this hotel is worth in Nainital.

We used to hear voices of people mangling just behind the room, although after complaining hotel staff they managed to let them keep quiet. (There is a central heating system behind rooms and workers were talking regularly loudly) The... More

Been to Nainital n number of times...stayed at most of the hotels there but the view form Alka beats all of them.Rooms are extremely cozy complimenting the weather. Room service prompt. Tariff too is not that bad. All in all...best way to relax Nainital.
