This is a beautifully maintained property right in the centre of the Mall Road. We stayed at the 3rd floor. Great view from the hotel overlooking the lake and the mountains. Rooms were clean, centrally heated. Toiletries provided. Mr. Ved at the hotel was helpful. Hotel recommended.

The hotel is bang-on the Mall Road. The rooms are well maintained but small in size. They appear clingy and often suffocating. No common area - no garden area, no play area for kids.

I think best hotel in nainital. Little expensive but if you compare class, cleaness, lake view, next visit I will prefer again to stay in alka hotel , if you want to save some money you can avoid eating in hotel , nearby very good restaurants are a available. We eat in Nanak restaurant.

This is the hotel I love to stay while visiting Nainital. It has the best location, being maintained as it was many years back, have a feel of British time wooded interiors, Do not expect a great luxury or modern amenities. Great view sitting in your balcony in front of lake and enjoying time with family.
