Multi cuisine restaurant is very good. Service is good. Best thing is its location as it is centraly located with boating point just in front of it. Overall very good first class hotel... More

Alka hotel is probably one of the best hotels in nainital. Located just near the lakeside, Alka combines tradition with modernity. The food is simply superb and so is the service. The price is also not over the top, must try for all the adventurers

It was wonderful to stay in Hotel Alka with my family in the last week of June this year for 3 days. The hotel has great location, offers very nice view of Naini Lake and overall good services, though the rates were on higher side.

I agree with earlier comments about unfriendly, uncooperative staff apart from doorman who always met us with a smile! The bathroom was dirty, the bedroom was was comfortable but dark and I got bitten to death overnight - not sure whether it was bedbugs or mosi's but I would not stay there again.

If you plan to go to Nainital... you must stay here at the ALKA HOTEL. It has the best facilities in the area. Hot running water 24/7, complimentary internet access, cozy rooms with a balcony over looking the beautiful lake in the prime location of Mall road. I had issues with booking the room being an international traveller from Australia.... More
