There are not many option to stay in Almora but this is very good hotel for staying in the center of Mall Road with parking facility available. Also there is lift which makes your life easy in hills. The Hotel has nice service and staff is friendly.

The location of the hotel is good however the hotel services are not up to the mark. Check in was delayed by 45 minutes and we had to wait at the reception. The first floor and ground floor smells bad. Overall i give 2 stars. Food was good.

Recently we visited the Hotel Shikhar at Alomra during our trip to Uttrakhand , Where the view of mountains were awesome. Its worth staying at Hotel Shikhar & visit to local sites. Having the friends during trip added more fun to the trip.
