Stayed in Alka for 3 nights, do not believe the 4* rating, the hotel would be lucky to score 2* in any other countries. The room was falling apart, with mirrors all around but no natural light. The airconditionining had to be turned on by ringing up the reception. Do not ask the "travel desk" to put you in touch with an agent, as they will charge you through the nose for a "city tour" consisting of the driver ferrying you from shops to shops where they get commission. While you're at it, try to arrange your own taxis as well as the receptionists only call their chums who charge you through the nose and refuse to switch on the meter. The only good thing about the hotel is probably their vegetarian restaurant, Vega.
