“helpful and well located”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2011

The hotel is well located for visits to the Har Ki Pari. Rooms are clean and fairly quiet. There is no restaurant. There is limited room service. My friend caught dysentery (not at the hotel). It was a bad deal. The manager was very helpful assisting me to find a hospital and how to get there. Thanks.

we stayed in this hotel in the month of july 2010 for 3 nights. Rooms are spacious, clean with perfectly working central AC. Location is good , very near to the PAUDI, 10 mins. walking distance only. During rainy season, because of the the flow of water, u may feel little inconvinience. Situated in shopping area so you may shop as much you want. Food is okay, variety is less. Value for money. Staff is good, specially an uncle at reception. Overall a nice hotel to stay with partner as well as with family.

I stayed here in december for 1 night with my indian boyfriend.
For Indian mid/price hotels this one is actually value for your money.
The hotel looks nice and is clean! Spacious rooms, and even the bathroom was very clean.
When u walk outside there is a bazaar, and very chaotic.. but u can´t notice this when u are inside. The ganges river is very close! So evening and morning rituals are on less then 5 min walk.
We got discount because it was not the touristic season, we paid Rp 1800. In stead of 2400 rp.
The only thing i did not like was the hotel manager or owner, the man behind the desk.
He was not so friendly and looked at us like he did not want us there.
Probably because i am a western girl, and my boyfriend Indian. that is `not done` in many hotels.

Travelled with my elderly mum and her friend. Basic room, my bathroom was smelly. No hot water the first day until we realised it was available for limited times in the mornings. The staff (other than reception staff who were pleasant) were pushy. They were keen to organise triips for us and then asked for extortiante amount of money afterwards. To the point that everytime we turned they were there. They overshadowed what was meant to be a trip of a lifetime for my mum.

There was no warm cosy feeling about this place. Forget the food, eat around the corner at Hari Ganga where you were made to feel welcomed and special.

If you do stay here be alert and watch your back. It would be fine for a night but not beyond.

Hotel also needs to be updated, gloomy looking and well overpriced.

Though Alpana Hotel is located at crowded market place, it is still quiet and restful, with good service and smiles at the front desk. Room was clean and airy, though plumbing at toilet can be improved. Lack of parking space is an issue but inevitable at the location which is very convenient for visiting Har-ki-Pauri.

This hotel is very near to Holy River Ganga. The main advantage of this hotel is that this is walkin distance of the GHAT

we had a lovely stay and the hotel staff looked after us with great care and passion

Very clean , Good Value for money & Good Food. Overall a blissful experience
