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.

Though rooms were fine, we were unable to sleep at all due to terrible disturbances by some drunk foreigners at the pool having liquor and music against the hotel guidelines which were not managed by the hotel management.

Medium hotel but quiet large room with ac. Good and friendly services. Due to lack of electricity noisy power supply near the restaurant, ask for room far from it. Good buffet mixing local and continental meals.

Hotel dinner only had western options which was a real shame. Breakfast was a buffet and good choice. Unfortunately everything was cold even at the starting... More
