I visited Haridwar for a ritual activity and stayed at La Casa for a night. I chose this hotel after seeing it's good rating in tripadvisor. I booked couple of rooms through makemytrip. On arival I was allocated two double bed rooms in 3rd floor. In the begining, I was very disappointed. The ambience in 3rd floor was very dull and boring (I am told there was some renovation work going on to create restaurant facilities). It had only 2 rooms in 3rd floor which were allocated to me. Further to this after a while, I found body hairs on the bedsheets and it seems those were already used by someone. But, on complaining , the room service promtly changed the bedsheets. Then another disappoint after a while - there was not enough water in the tapes and toilet flush in the bathroom. On complaining, hotel staff was again prompt and tried to fix it but then I was offerred to shift both my rooms into the 2nd floor. The 2nd floor was good and the rooms were neat and clean. I'm generally very particular about the cleanliness and finally I was satisfied with the given rooms.
Food was good which was more like home made. I had tried both breakfast and Dinner in the hotel.
Har ki pauri is about 10-15 minutes rikshaw ride from the hotel. I had 5 members in my family so took 2 rikshaws while travelling to Har ki pauri from the hotel. In general, each rikshaw has the facility to take 5 passengers at a time. Both the rikshaw charged me Rs. 30/- each.
Haridwar Railway station is about 5-10 minutes ride if Tempo/Taxi is used.
For me, Leaving apart the initial hiccups, overall I found the hotel to be good. Room service staffs were very good and promt.
I would recommend this hotel to others (may be not the 3rd floor rooms) and may like to stay again if I have to visit Haridwar.
Cleanilness and Rooms rating I provided is purely based on the rooms that I fianally end up using.
