We stayed there yesterday only for half a day. When we made booking through booking.com it was for 1800 per night and we made a special request that we will checkin at 6 am and will check out by 6 pm in evening.so its was confirmed that time . When we checked in at 6 am we were been informed that we will be charged 500 rupees additional as we are checking in early morning.we accepted any how and out total bill was 500+1800=2300 rupees for half a days stay. The person who spoke to us regarding the payment in the morning was extremely rude and inproffesional.

We wanted to check in, but opted out due to the extreme rude and offhandish behaviour of the reception person. He was reluctant from the very beginning, despite having empty rooms and a no-rush hour. We were ready to check in but were left quite helpless with the uncooperative attitude.

Stayed with family for one night. Very clean rooms with fresh sanitized bedsheets, linen, quilt and blankets. Food is very tasty and delicious. You can try Kumaoni cuisine here. Warm and cozy rooms with no external sound. Situated in the city centre, so all the things are within reach. One other plus point is parking facility. Room service is excellent. Must stay place while in Almora.

Hotel Shikhar is situated in the heart of Almora and due to the location it helps you feel the town, the people and with the view the terraces offers, the Himalayas too. It is close to the local market, a walk through which is also fascinating. What I found interestingly unusual was the hotel being multi floored, and as you enter the hotel reception through the main entrance, you don't realise that this is the sixth floor and to reach your room you will have to take an elevator to third or fourth floor, downstairs. The rooms are nice and airy, washrooms could be better. Sitting in the balcony watching the sunset/ sunrise is a soothing experience. The restaurant is decent. Although not very glamorous but overall, it is worth the price.

Positive : Very cordial staff. Areas of improvement : Rooms require maintenance. I stayed in family room. Only one light could be switched on, Door bell was not working.Bathroom fittings were broken. Bed sheets were very aged and yellowish. There are better options available nearby for the price Shikhar is charging.

This hotel appears to be located in a very congested area and one wonders about how to get a nice room. But after checking in, we realised that the rooms are on lower floors, which are comparatively quite. Food was good in their restaurant and not too expensive either. They have nice views of the valley.

Shikkar hotel is in the muddle of crowded city of Almora. The roads are very narrow and it's mostly one way. Hotel limited parking space but view from the hotel is awesome. It is one of the oldest yet maintained hotel.
