The hotel has a superb view from its rooftop... At night the view is even more amazing and looks like the star have come to ground... I was not much satisfied with the service rest I thought was just simply great.. Keep up!

I visited this hotel in December and we enjoyed our stay at this hotel.. Hotel is in the middle.. Its on mall road. You can take a walk to reach market. Hotel is very clean and tidy. Staff is also good.. It will be a worth for your money..

The hotel does not live up to the hype that surrounds it. Staff is very co-operative and food is good. The location is excellent. Right at the centre of the Mall road. And the view from the hotel overlooking the lake is great. But the rooms are small and the lighting is dull (that may be a subjective opinion).

The hotel is good, a little expensive if you need a room with a good view. The interiors of the room are simple, if not too luxurious. Rooms are air-conditioned, bathrooms clean with basic complimentary toiletries. Its the view that you pay for after all. So choose something from the top floors if possible. The staff is courteous but could... More

Visited Alka Hotel on 10-July-2016,found the Hotel pretty impressive but the guy at reception was such a moron. Misbehaved with us out of no reason. Just asked him are there any discounts going on and reply was "Humare yahan nahi hote discounts. Hume customer ki zarorat nahi hai, Customer ko humari Zaroraat hai". What kind of people Alka Hotel has... More

Visited in the month of September'15 for a week, good option in mall road although average services & property. If one is considering serene and with all the facilities one must choose some better options in Nainital. Not tried their food as one can find many options near by. Bit lacking in cleanliness and bed which affected the sleep quality.
