It was my trip to Nainital in the month of december 2016 where I stayed in the Alka - The Lake Side Hotel. It was my business trip with friends. My travel destination was good because scenic place with appropriate weather. The hotel location was average. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as good as it is very clean. Hotel front office was good since they are always available with correct information. I booked this room directly at hotel. The house keeping services were average since it is for limited time. The rooms at the hotel were good because of facilities and decoration. I would rate food as good because of taste and price is not high.

Enjoyed with friends with best location and services

5.9/7
Posted 9 Jan, 2015

Alka - The Lake Side Hotel was very good especially its services. The room provided by the hotel was spacious and well maintained with working amenities. There was a good lake and road view from the room window. I was fully satisfied by the room given to me. This hotel is located near by the lake with best interior and exterior appearance. The room service staff were very helpful and good. Once I had tasted food from the hotel restaurant, which was tasty, top eat. Check-in and check-out process was on time. There were sightseeing trip organised by the hotel but we did not utilize it. My trip to this hotel was with my friends and had a very good experience. There were no activities organised by the hotel. The destination Nainital was very good and an enjoyable too. I would suggest this hotel to other travellers since its location was best since it is easy accessible to the main road and market.

Beautiful view was visible from the room

5.5/7
Posted 1 Jan, 2015

The best part of the hotel is that bed room. Outer and inner look of the hotel was attractive and well-decorated. Servicing staff was really good and overall services were fantastic. Location of the hotel was easily accessible and it was located adjacent with the Water Tal. My overall stay there was fine. Room was spacious and well-furnished. Beautiful view was visible from the room. AC, TV, geyser and other basic amenities were available there. They served complimentary toiletries. Restaurants were available in the surrounding of the hotel. Food facility was available in the hotel and quality and quantity wise, the food was fine. Price wise, the food was reasonable. I visited there as a couple. I am not sure about activity like swimming pool, etc. They arranged cab facility for sightseeing trip. Nainital as a destination place is fantastic for travellers. I faced no problem in this hotel during my stay. Money spend there was valuable.

The Best Hotel in Nainital

7.0/7
Posted 31 Oct, 2015

Best property in Nainital (Uttrakhand) for family, friends, group etc. This is based at best location and view to The Naini Jheel. The staff of hotel is very good, services excellent, and food is also very good. So I think Alka Is the best Hotel in Nainital. All Tourist Destination are so closed from there.
