As the name suggests the hotel is like climbing the Himalaya. We got the best room and the best view, so for that we had to climb quite a bit which we didn't mind too much as the view from top made up for that. Good budget hotel with all standard facilities like hot water and a room heater as... More

The only advantage of this hotel is availability of parking and proximity to mall road. We had booked the family suite and had to crane our necks for the lake view. Food quality and taste was strictly average for what it costs. It was bland and tasteless. I found the staff arrogant and un-willing to offer services. All in all,... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Himalaya. First and foremost is the view. It's breathtakingly beautiful. Sadly that's the only positive of this hotel. The rooms are shabby to say the least. We stayed in the heritage wing which had dilapidated walls and furniture. Cleanliness is an issue. You have to climb a steep road of about a 100-150m to... More

The hotel has some negative points and positive points. Starting with room was good but not great view, food was good service was bad, staff behavior was unusual. Breakfast serving starts at 8.00. If you want to check out before 7 it's difficult to get breakfast. Hot water is only available during 6 to 11 am in the morning. After... More

we booked a "lake view" room and the room did not disappoint on this count . As soon as we entered the room, we were greeted by a stunning view of the lake through the huge window. One can spend the whole day just sitting by the window. The hotel was originally a summer retreat and some part of it... More
