“Very good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We traveled a lot and reached Nainital at night time on our Tampo traveler in the night time via Haridwar,we called the hotel as our temo was parked in the parking and they send us their jeep to pick us,"thanks for that guys ".
The hotel is just near the mall oin zoo road and facing the lake,we got the rooms as booked and they were nice and cosy,we told them to arrange jaini food for us and they did is with a smile,we also had" kachri and chag" and that was great to find guju like food in nainital,
We got what we asked and full " paise wasool "stay at hotel maharaja "keep it up guys"thank you all to make our trip the best .

Room Tip: if you are traveeling with your family please book early top get the best rooms.

The Maharaja hotel is good in service. Both room service and the shuttle service are good.
Better in location and ambiance as compared to other budget hotel in zoo road Nainital.
You can see the full lake view from the balcony and the night view is lovely.
Best food in >north Indian but good food at reasonable price. We tasted many things liked the paneer butter masala and home like chapatis.

Room Tip: call them to chose the best room , trust them

we went to naini on our anniversary and stayed in the super deluxe room of this hotel. The view from our room was amazing. the location is off the main road but that seemed an advantage to us as the noise levels on the mall road are too much. plus their jeep service from the mall to the hotel was very convenient.

Our rooms, bathrooms as well as linen were neat and clean, food decent and service efficient if impersonal. would recommend for budget travelers.

Room Tip: ask for the lake facing rooms!

Right from the beginning, this hotel was way down on our priority list. However, we had to go to this hotel as no rooms were available in other better hotels during that long weekend.
Unfortunately this experience of staying here turned out to be way below our expectations, as the location of this hotel is very poor from a tourist's point of view. It is located steep half km up hill from Mall Road due to this, one doesn't get a complete lake view plus from the balcony direct view is of some shabby dwellings next to the hotel which does not give a good experience . Some rooms on upper floors might have view, but quality is not very upmarket The rest is all disappointment. We reached in the morning by bus and were given three choices of rooms, but all of them were dark shady & cramped i.e. super super small the modern day apartment kitchen is bigger then these rooms. The room we chose - we asked the staff to clean it up thrice and they did so! But even after that we had frayed and spotted bed linen, a horror of a toilet seat and an all pervading smell of phenyl and mould that refused to go away even after spraying loads of room freshner which actually gave me headache. The sheets were changed three times and still what we had - one would hesitate to even touch it, let alone sleep on it, given a choice. We had to use the sheets but the blanket was even worse and my wife really put her foot down there. So we spent the night in jeans and pull-overs with the blanket left aside.Conclusion even at this price point, this hotel doesn't provide any value for money at all .

Room Tip: Please dont save money spend some or your holiday will be spoilt

Dear Sir,

We regret that your experience with us was below expectations. As you have mentioned in your review, we did try to cater to your expectations but it seems that you wanted to stay at a better located upmarket hotel. Ours is a budget property and it would be fairer if you compared us to other such properties.

About the jeep service, it is clearly mentioned that this is for pickup and drop during check in and check out, as well as commuting from the mall to the hotel. Going down to the mall is a 5 minutes walk.

regards,

madhur

Me ,my kids and wife along with my mom dad and sala visited nainital..we called the hotel for good rooms they suggested us a double bed super deluxe room lake facing and a four bed room the size was better than the deluxe room and almost as mentioned on their site.
the view from the room and the balcony was best, but there was no view from four bed room but you can enjoy you tea sitting in the balcony ,the room was good with two baths and a small sitting so the view can be compromised,
food was reasonable and room service was good and prompt.
we had elderly parents with us but we did,nt had any problem climbing up to the hotel as they supplemented it with their shuttle service for pick up.we faced no problem walking down the mall road it was 5 minutes walk.
bathrooms are clean and they listen to you if there is any problem.to sum it up great value for money hotel...i will defiantly recommend this hotel to anybody looking good accommodation in less price.

Room Tip: Chose double bed super deluxe lake facing for small families and go for four bed room for big famil...

The pictures do not show the size of the rooms. The rooms are super small. Even the double bed ones. The rooms were so small that the only walking space left was to go to the bathroom.

The bathroom was also not clean. The taps were leaky. The hot/cold water supply was from 7am - 10am in the morning only. I have been to many hill stations, but this hotel was the worst of all. And yes, they mention the complimentary pick and drop facility is there. It only has pick up facility. Its clearly mentioned on their service card.

Room Tip: Rooms in this hotel are super small. So be careful if you book this hotel. Better go towards the Mal...

I booked this hotel by the hotel website www.maharajahotelnainital.com. After talking to them on the phone.

Everything was mentioned on the site the room size and the room picture were exactly as mentioned. But you can't get a three star room in such minimum prizes. I was completely satisfied . Compared to other hotels in the mall the same service will cost you twice as much you pay here this hotel . I have stayed in many hotels with my friends in Nainital but in budget category this hotel is best. Food is good , pickup service to the hotel is very good. Hot water starts early in the morning to late evenings which I didn't get in other hotels I stayed in. Staff was very cooperative. I booked a taxi for one day sight seeing and they gave me a good driver and we had fun.view from the balcony is superb.



I can recommend it to anyone who is looking for budget accommodation .

Room Tip: book lake facing room if you want to enjoy thje lake view .
