Firstly, in any other city, I would rate a property like La Casa 'Average' but for Haridwar standards and for the Value for Money advantage, I am tempted to give them an overall rating of 'Very Good'.
As others have mentioned, La Casa is really close to the railway station and not too far from Har Ki Pauri. It is a smartly done up property. Really liked the way they have done up the lobbys of the 1st and 2nd floor.
We had 2 Deluxe rooms, adjacent to one another on the 3rd floor. Comfy rooms, though bed was a bit too soft. They need to get the washrooms sorted out. On the look of it all was ok, however, there is no mixer for hot and cold water, in tap or shower...so you either bathe is scathing hot water or chilled cold water, if its winters. So we had to forego a shower and do the mixing in the bucket.
The place was quite noisy at night since the kitchen is on the 3rd floor, very close to the rooms. We mentined this to the front desk the next morning. They were apologetic about it and mentioned that the kitchen will soon be shifted else where. Till that happens, I would recommend fellow travellers to take rooms on 1st or 2nd floor. We also happened to get stuck in the lift for a good 15 minutes due to some fault in the equipment and had to be mechanically lowered down. Luckily, we were checking out the same day and were given an alternate room on the 1st floor till then. Had the hotel been running full or we staying another night, this would have been a tough situation as 2 people in our group had health issues prohibiting them to use staircases.
We didnt try La Casa's kitchen as Daana Paani across the road was really good. Their parathas for breakfast are a must try!
The staff at La Casa is courteous and helpful. It is a good property and with a little bit more effort, can become totally irresistible.
