Room and surrounding is good. But the booking is not clear and charged extra than the booking at the time of check out. No buffet available for breakfast lunch and dinner. Room service staff is friendly and good. Will not come again as overall satisfaction is not there for the amount paid...

Alakamanda's female receptionist gave a great first impression by providing me with information I requested. Decided to check-in at Alakamanda due to her professional approach.

We stayed for 2 nights at Hotel Alakamanda and it was a very pleasant experience. Location of the hotel is very convenient, just few kilometers from the city center. Staff is friendly and always ready to assist you.

This midrange hotel has great public areas - lovely garden and poolside area and clean comfy rooms. Stones throw from the archeological sites and good dining options means you don't have to go far to look for a decent meal.

Staff was very friendly and always had a big smile on their face. Rooms are large but the cleanliness need to be improved. Morning buffet was well spread out for the price. Overall experience was very good. Enjoyed the food and stay!
