This is a very good hotel to enjoy the bank of river ganga. Though, being a government property the upkeep may not be as good as you pay for. However, it offers you wonder view and comfort to sit beside ganga river even till mid night and enjoy the flow of Ganga. particularly during mid night the sound of water... More

While driving from Delhi to Pauri, we stopped here for one hr to have breakfast and to take a dip in gangaji. Being a govt guest house location is prime just adjacent to the river and huge area. But poorly maintained, service is very slow and food is avg. This property can be converted into a great one if some... More

Hi, I would say that the only thing that pulls me towards staying here is its location and perhaps it is best for the short stay as the staff really is badly trained and maintenance is also not good. the furniture is also getting older, except the 2-3 AC rooms on the ground floor most of the rooms smell.

First is the location on the banks of Holy Ganges.. with a lovely clean ghat to take a holy dip, with barricades & steps to help u.. Rooms are good and spacious. This is a Govt of UP property so maintained more like a Guest House.. But located in a quiet area of the holy city. Food is OK.. Overall... More

An ideal laid back government owned property, right on the Ganges. This place is a perfect weekend getaway to relax, sit by the river and enjoy some nice easy-on-stomach food. It is a bit far from Har-ki-pauri but still it is amazing. The terrace gives a wonderful view of Mansa Devi and Chandi Devi. A nice stroll by the river... More

Hotel Alaknanda is a typical Government hotel with good location but bad service. The hotel is just about 2Km from the railway station and about 1.5 Km from Har ki Pauri. But the room service is pathetic. The restaurent is highly overpriced...please avoid food over there. The only good thing about this hotel is that it has its own ghat... More

The hotel location is perfect. It is at a distance of 1km from the Harkipouri ghat. So when you are at the hotel, you are away from the maddening crowd. Yet you have the option of going to the central location easily. The hotel is situated on the bank of Ganges with just a pavement between the hotel and the... More

Probably the best location in Haridwar. Right on the banks of The Ganges. The rooms are basic for the AC Deluxe rooms. Dont even dare to try the non AC rooms.... they are poorly maintained and bad.

It is not a plush place a very basic govt hotel but the view is worth a million. It opens to a ghat of the holy river Ganga. It offers very simple and basic facilities and from the room also once can see the beautiful river Ganga flowing. Also it has a garden from where one can enjoy the view... More

It extends to Har-Ki-Pauri.(some portion however was under construction before ensuing Ardha Kumbho). Most of the rooms are facing a wide lawn illuminated during night, ending on river front.
