“A Good Budget Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

Staying in NCR, naitinal is a usual weekend getaway for us.
Everytime we drive down to Nainital. We always stay at Hotel Himalya. It has never been disappointing.

Location
The hotel is located right at the beginning of the mall road next to the bus stand. Cant think of a better location. The view makes it even better, there are 4 Rooms which are located seperate to the main hotel. They are right at the entrance. Those are what I prefer. I am not very clear, but they are in the range of #501 - #506. It gives you a secluded spot from the other rooms, a suberb view of the naini lake and enough open space for a outside room breakfast.

Food.
By virture I think all the places there serve yum food. This hotel is no different.
My fav. morning breakfast here has always been bread toast n tea with aloo paranta and egg bhurjee.

Rooms.
The rooms are priced in the range of 2000 to 2500 for a cpl.
Good room service, neat rooms with clean bathrooms.
Room service is responsive.


The best plus point of this hotel is the convenient parking space it offers.
Mind you, parking for a few days in Nainital can be steep. So this definetly adds to the advantage of the hotel.

And yes, for some idle time, you can try the mini golf course they have on level 1.

Over all, if you got a budget to stick to and stillw and quality. Blindly go for this palce.

Room Tip: Go for the rooms in the 501 - 506 category. They are seperately located close to the entry and with...

Drove down to Nainital from Lucknow in Jan end....Roads are not are not worth talking about but the destination is worth the pain :)....
Chose the hotel from a selection from MakemyTrip and it turned out to be a good choice on and on. Seemed good value for money apart from a few problem issues. The hotel is situated on a steep slope, difficult to walk up ..especially if you have old people with you. The rooms are neat..ask for the lake facing rooms, the ones with the glass panes on the front. Lovely view of the lake. Room service could have been better, careful if you ask for butter chicken...i think they go down to the market and buy the chicken...takes that long.
The only thing unforgivable seemed that the water heaters were from the British era..took infernally long to heat up a decent bucket of water...that seriously is unforgivable if you go to Nainital in January! To add salt to the wound the room service guy tries to explain to you how a water heater works....Keep up your sense of humor and the stay should be fine :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the lake....got glass panes on the front..the view of the lake is splendid.

I stayed here during last summer to avoid delhi heat. This was not my first time at nainital. I went there four times and stayed in same hotel (Hotel Himalaya). It is nearest to the bus stand. You can enjoy the walking through mall road to main mall area it is about 1 KM distance. Simpily fantastic.
Food Quality is fantastic, specialy butter chicken. Sorry for veg people, but they can try for paner butter masala.
Room located lake facing excelent. mini golf course is simply wow!!!!!!

Room Tip: Please take lake facing room. Avoid heritage room.

We stayed at Himalaya Hotel for 02 nights. I would say the Deluxe Facing Room is the best Rooms, as you can see the lake right from your bed. I travelled with my family and we enjoyed a lot in the hotel. Food is also very hygenic and taste in the hotel and hotel staff is very helpfull. One problem i would like to mention regarding the height of the hotel, my parents age 65,64 find little diffiult in reaching the hotel.

But overall it is worth place to stay.

Keep it up !!!!
