We had a long standing reservation at this hotel for a two weeks stay made by phone as they failed to answer the email we sent - that should have been warning enough but stupidly we persevered. We arrived in the area a few days early luckily and went to see the hotel where we were told they only take... More

The hotel is just at the mall, very close to the lake. In general it's a nice hotel but it's not maintained well. There are lots of bugs, probably bed bugs, in the room, I noticed also some worms on the floor. The hotel owner is nice, he got us a deal for travels. The rooms upstairs have a great... More

on arrival to Nainital we looked at 4 hotels before settling on the Hotel Evelyn, with 60 rooms and located on the Mall Road, just on the beginning of the Zoo Road...southern end of Nainital. We stayed a week. Our rooms were 1400 and 1500 rps, about $25 USD, though there were rooms in the property that were less. While... More

We had a brief stopover at Nainital for a night en route to Delhi from further up in Uttaranchal. I had heard good things about this hotel, and it has a bit of a history - the famous author Ram Dass (more than 2 million books sold), and the Grammy nominated singer Krishna Das spent a lot of time here...

We stayed there in May of this year. We looked at several places along the Mall- and Evelyn was the nicest by far. Location was great. It's near the beginning of the Mall, which is much quieter than the end close to the Tibetan Market (that gets hectic and *noisy*). View was beautiful. The hotel has several levels, get a... More

One of my favourite spots in the world, this hotel has a unique charm and the best location. However, it is true what all these other reviews say...Needs work and p'raps a woman's touch? My husband and I stayed for a few nights this September, way up on the top floor. 111 steps each way, up & down. Fantastic workout!... More
