Rooms are musty,dark and need to be cleaner. Lots of mosquitoes which are an issue. Food is pretty good, Service ok. Rooms were not worth the price that the hotel is charging and there are a number of things that if addressed would make the hotel much much better.

We had a nice stay at Hotel Alakamanda. The room was very clean and nice. The bathroom was good too. The staff was very friendly too. There was a bit of noise due to the ongoing works but was still OK. We had dinner there and it was OK overall.

We checked in for a two-night stay at this place on 16th Dec 2015. The place did not look as impressive as website pics. The first lunch was pathetic and so was the next. One breakfast was as almost as bad as the lunches but the other was much better. However both dinners were very impressive. Made us wonder whether...

Rooms were nice and clean. Specially the Bathroom was very clean. Ac and tv worked well and we had a good slp without any disturbance. However must note that we found hair under a pillow which was not ours for sure. If the bed linen had not been changed that would be the most disgusting thing to do. Only they...

Even though this place is trying to show it as a boutique hotel but It’s just a Ok hotel. The hotel is far away from everything and it’s not as good as it shows in the pictures. First to start with, even though the hotel has 25 rooms it has very limited vehicle parking slots like 8 – 10 slots...

I would say it is a 3 stars. The hotel is far from everything and is not as good as in the pictures. I found a couple of spiders on the bathroom and the showers wasn't clean. The shampoo bottle were refilled. I don't think it is a good value for the money we payed.

So to start with, the hotel is in the middle of nowhere. So if you don't have transport you'll be stuck here and trust me... you don't want that. After the check in that took a good 10 minutes we were taken to our room. To our surprise it had two single beds and not the double bed that was...
