“Good location and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

This hotel is located at the south end of Naini lake and provides and excellent view of the entire lake and the surrounding hills. The heritage rooms are large with a porch. The lake facing rooms provide good view through their glass walls. There is also a 9 hole mini-golf which is a must-try. Hotel staff was polite and helpful, especially the person assigned to our room (Kundan). Also this hotel has parking for its guest which is rare in Nainital. The food was good too (we took the package which included breakfast and dinner). The building is old but well maintained, so you may feel the flooring, furniture etc is old/antique. Also one has to climb a steep road to reach the hotel but I guess it'd be same for most hotels here.

Room Tip: Lake facing rooms are good, but pricier.

I booked Hotel Himalaya in ealry June over phone. I was promised Heritage room on 17th June and Lake facing Deluxe room on 18th, 19th and 20th. But to my utter surprise, i was deprived the lake facing room for the promised dates and i was forced to stay in Heritage room for all these dates. There was no cordination between Head Office staff (who booked rooms over phone) and reception staff. Infact, the recption staff was rude to the max possible extent. I would like to congratulate the owner for the facilities and accomodation but the service industry also thrive due to its service staff. The owner should look into this.

Also, do not book sight-seeing and station-pickup and drop taxi through the reception staff as it would prove costly. Book through travel agents on the Mall road and you will get a fair deal.

About the hotel, the location is fantastic, especially overlooking the lake and just near the bus stand. The Mini Golf is also a very good conecpt. Food is good and you will get whatever you order, in your room. One more thing, the hotel does not provide pick and drop from/on the Mall road though their website claims so. The Heritage room did not have fans, so at times, it was difficult to sleep at night if the weather turned hot.

Room Tip: Book a room if the room is available for your complete dates. The Lake facing room is with the best...

Well, me and my younger brother were planning to visit Nainitaal with our parents, but we were very confused because of the Quality of service of comfort. we were going with our parents so it was a matter of great care and comfort in respect of them. we reached Nainitaal on 25th of May 2012, & @ The Hotel Himalaya, (Near bus stand, Tallitaal) was found. having reached @ reception, we met Mr. Rajesh (Hotel Manager) and make a query regarding availability of Family suite, By god's Grace we found the Family suite (Suite No- 211) for four persons. We love it @ first sight. see this a peak season ! and availability with a quality tour was a big issue but we thank to "Hotel Himalaya" for caring us up to 3 nights and 4 days with a great experience. The view to Talli Lake and whole Nainitaal is very charming and exciting. we enjoyed all 4 days in Nainitaal like living in the Haven.

Room Tip: Next time when ever we tour to Nainitaal, definately we'll book the cottage (Room 303 or 301) we...

We went on a family holiday to nainital around Dushehra holidays and due to tourist season moved into this hotel.Though its got the feel of a very average, budget property, the location is absolutely superb. Its bang overlooking the Naini lake, u can actually wave from its terrace to the boat riders passing through this end of the lake. And looks really beautiful at night as u have the whole valley view streched out in front of u. Food and service is average. The rooms (at least the ones we were given) were damp, old constructioned, with reptiles, very uncomfortable mattresses...so all in all not good at all. So check out the condition of the rooms before u actually decide to stay on in this property.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lake certainly hv a better view but do check out the condition of the room..as in t...

All rooms have been renovated in the winter of 2011. Regular maintenance is been done as we have appointed a maintenance manager. The review is 8 months old.We are constantly trying to give value for money and improving the hotel with every progressive year. Our aim is to provide a mid budget hotel with good services.

" A good value for money experience"
It was first time I used this property. Location is most convenient being adjacent to bus stand. You can thus avoid passing through Mall Road that saves time as well as entry fee. Lake view rooms are added attraction . Service is top class and staff is very caring and courteous.A little climb up hill for hotel entry is a nice exercise and rather satisfies you that legs are in good shape. A little improvement in room interiors is suggested. Tariff is reasonable. On the whole a very good value for money spent. Book in advance and enjoy your stay

Room Tip: Lake view rooms have locational advantage. Corner rooms are twin rooms where family of 4-5 can stay...
