“Good view, comfortable stay, except for the flight of stairs”
Reviewed 3 November 2010

Its location is great, the rooms are well-done but the painful part is climbing the stairs...from the road one needs to climb at least 25-30 steps to reach the rooms at lower level and about 50 steps to reach the rooms at higher level. The food is okay.

The pick was very obvious since we have a preference towards government accomodations. We had booked a super deluxe room in sarovar kmvn. The first view was very satisfying. The tourist rest house is built in a large area and is facing the lake. But you can get tired climbing up the number of stairs to reach the reception. But I will not blame this to the hotel since almost all the hotels in nainital have quite a flight of stairs. The staff who received us was very helpful. The super deluxe room was very neat, the balcony was quite big overlooking the lake and the whole town around the lake. The toilet was clean. The better part about the hotel is its location. Its adjacent to the mall road, so one gets in touch with the mall as well as privacy in terms of traffic noise and market hullabaloo. Last but the best is the restaurant food. They take time to serve but thats just because they make it very fresh. We stayed for 2 days, ate all meals but no complains. Also there is room for a lot of parking that you cannot get in other hotels around mall. One thing i would suggest to the future travellers is not to take the deluxe/standard room of this hotel. You can be disappointed, since the room is a bit shabby, and there is no balcony view. And one more thing the booking is ONLY online, so dont make the mistake of booking on phone. We did so and had to face a bit of confusion. As for recommending i would surely recommend for staying.

It has spacious rooms over looking the NAINITAL lake.U can see the lake from the Balcony of u r room.The chairs in the balcony r very comfortable.
The view of the lake is really wonderful. Also,u can have a very nice view of the Naini peak and also of the Ropeway..Honeymooners can have a great time here.
The night view of Nainital from the balcony is mesmerising.
U can see the mall road from here.
It is strategically located in such a way that almost all the tourist spots or their links are very close to it..
The rooms are very clean,carpeted and has very good room heating system.You get hot water in the tap .The room service is very prompt.
The hotel itself looks grest from the lake when u go boating.

The KMVN Sarovar hotel is Govt owned. This is the best Budget Hotel and next to the Naini Lake. The location is just next to the bus stand / Taxi stand. The railway booking counter is also next to Bus stand.

The super deluxe rooms (Rs 2500 in season) are big and have private balcony. All balconies face the lake. The food is also good, order 30 min in advance. The best part is you are near to the local market/ railway reservation counter etc.

Boating : Rs 160 / hour.
Cab to Kathgodam: Alto for Rs 250/- one side. Buses are frequently available.

it was a wonderful trip with friends. 6 of us, took up a dormitory of 8 beds in this hotel. this room had a beautifu view of lake. at night the lights shimmering in water looked beautiful. the staff was courtieous and helpful. roomservice was very good. we only had breakfast there and that was awesome.

clean tidy room and linen. typical feeling of british era building in a hill station. as we went there in december which must be offseason, we got the dormitory very cheap.

really felt good unlike other hotels which are very commercialised.

its was very quiet and elegant.
