Reviewed 26 August 2014

Booked the deluxe lake facing rooms. The view of he lake from the room is breathtaking and beautiful.
Service of the staff was good and responsive.
Rooms can be cleaner and better maintained, for instance the in-room telephone was not functioning.

Visited in June 2014, myself and my family had a terrible experience. The 2 rooms allotted to us were dingy, run down and downright dirty with no view whatsoever. And those were supposed to be their 'premium' rooms. Service was crappy, especially at the restaurant. Only one or two waiters were doing their duty diligently while you could always find 4-5 joking around chit-chating on stairs while hungry diners were left without food, water, spoons etc at the buffet. Management was least bothered about this even when we complained several times. Please take a look at the pictures of the room. It was a disgusting experience to say the least!!!

Dear Sir,

Thanks for writing this review for Himalaya, we are highly apologetic for giving a room which did not meet your expectations, infact it dosent meet ours either, in retrospect our boys should't have given that room. So thanks to you we are redoing the entire room and 3 more rooms which we thought were not upto the mark. Will post some pics when the work is done. Thanks,

We stayed in Himalaya Hotel for three days during June 2014 . The Heritage rooms and cottages are awesome to stay .Fantastic view of Naini Lake . Hotel staff is very much co-operative waiter Dinesh is such a hospitable person. Food was also good. Hotel can improve is on its cleanliness .
Winds coming from Naini lake makes it perfect place to stay for nature lovers.
It is worth to stay there in affordable prices.

the positioning of the hotel is not apt for winters as it becomes quite windy and all our group members fell sick. the winds starting from naina devi mandir croos the jheel and become quite chilly and the hotel is just placed at the other end of the jheel hence making the location not apt

Dear Guest,

That read like a weather report, I see there has been no mention of our services, rooms, facilities etc. Nainital is a hill station so it gets cold in winters more than the northern plains, so next time if you plan a trip to a hill station go prepared with woolens and warmers. Infact the whole of nainital was cold not just Himalaya Hotel.

The view of the Naini Lake from the hotel is very good. Have a very goof lobby to sit and enjoy in the evening. The rooms are of heritage type of nature. The beds sometimes make sounds when sleeping because of old furniture. The only one problem I have faced is that the hotel is at a height which makes it tough if you have to go from the bus stand to hotel 2-3 times.

Dear Sir,

I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Himalaya Hotel, the hotel is just 50 mtrs from the bus station but there surely is a bit of a climb to the hotel, but thats whats makes the view excellent.

Thanks,

I love this room where I was stay in Hotel Himalaya for 3 days. It was "Lake Facing Room" as well as near about bus stand. We received good room services, car parking, in-house games like Golf and Carrom. I was very happy to play Golf. Overall,It was amazing experience to stay there.

One of the best views that you can get from Tallital side of Nainital (definitely depends on your room choice). I can tell this because I have visited Nainital since childhood and nothing less than 50 times. We received good service from the staff so overall a fine experience. Food is average but hygienic. A steep climb might be a problem for people with weak knees.
