“A good Hotel”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Although the property is very good and location is superb but room size and double beds are a bit small. food is good but over priced. Best part was free wifi access and lift upto the fourth floor. Generally all rooms are lake facing.

Room Tip: I would recommend couples rather than family.

I stayed in this property on 18 and 19th June 2013. The property is located at a very convenient location. The lake is just opposite to the property, one gets very nice and clear view of lake and mountains. The Zoo is very near by and you can access the complimentary wifi too. The hotel is very cleanly maintained and rooms are decent. The best thing I liked about this property is that there was no smell in the rooms, all other hotels that I visited within same price range have bad smell in the rooms(May be because of rainy season).

Room Tip: I stayed in economy room, the room number 40 is bigger than room number 39.

The Alka Bistro is in the basement of the Alka Lakeside Hotel. It serves Italian Lavazza coffee which is a blessing in a town where good coffee is hard to come by. The bistro is underground and separated into American style booths giving a sense of privacy and security. It serves a small range of snack foods but no hot drinks other than coffee, so you're out of luck if you would prefer a hot chocolate.

I stayed in this hotel for a night very recently. We rented a family appartment comprising of 2 bedrooms, 2 attached bathrooms and a small living room at the entrance. The hotel is situated right on the mall road which is definitely a plus. It has a good view of the lake from its balconeys. The appartment itself was very good with good sized rooms, the appt can accomodate 4+1 adults (and there is no charge for the extra adult). there is a sofa cum bed in the living room which can be used as an additional bed. The hotel staff is very accomodating and helps wherever they can. They gave our driver blankets at no additional charge. The bathrooms are good sized and there is 24 hr running water. Electricity is not a problem as they have a DG set installed. Flat screen tvs are installed. Complete wooden panelling in the rooms. Overall a very good hotel in Nainital on the mall road and highly recommended for staying.

Nice place on the mall... Good view of the lake.. Rooms are good.. Complimentary WiFi is added advantage.... Food is bit expensive, but one finds good eating points on the mall so it can be dealt with...
If one plans to stay here do ask for rooms on the second floor, as it gives a good view of the lake moreover, there are tables outside every room so having breakfast early morning is very enjoyable....
