We booked by telephone without having to give any advance. Being 3 in the same room instead of charging for the extra bed sonam removed the breakfast so that we didn't have to pay extra, it allowed us to try out other places for breakfast even if the one at him view is excellent. We stayed in the large room... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in October. The room was very clean and had a great view of the mountains. My only complaint would be that it smelled vaguely of fried food... The included breakfast was good-- the Himview omelet sandwich was particularly delicious. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall, it was a great experience!

Yet another of my unforgettable stays at the 8 Auspicious Him View Hotel has come to its end. The quality of service, the cleanness, the food the always attentive and most friendly Tibetan staff, still meet my very high expectation resutling from the last three times I stayed at this hotel - even though the hotel almost doubled its offer...

We stayed at this hotel in October 2011 and had an excellent time. Firstly, we reached Mcleodgunj at 6 am and headed straight to the hotel, a 10 minute walk from the bus stand. We were tired after the night long bus journey and wanted to hit the sack immediately. They created no fuss about check in time, and did... More

We had booked the hotel for two nights by email. The best part is that unlike other hotels which insist on advance payment, the owner Sonam Maza confirmed the room without asking for any advance even we asked her to. She just told us to make the payment at the hotel itself. When we reached the hotel, the check in... More

We stayed at the 8 Auspicious Him View Hotel for 2 nights around mid-Oct'11. We had asked for a 2-windows' corner room at the time of reservation, which created a slight problem at check-in, but was quickly sorted out. The room & the bathroom were very clean, and especially their quilts were very comfortable. The views from the balcony were... More

We recently stay for 3 nights at this hotel with our two children. The place is a great value for location, the Tibetan women who run the place are very nice and helpful, the rooms are clean & the bathrooms have hot showers, and even the kids loved the food. A very good deal for its price range!

We recently stayed at the hotel for several days. The hotel is nice though a bit spartan, with clean rooms and nice decor. The shower is in the bathroom (not separate), with no curtains, and the wetness tended to cause a mildewy smell every day. The views from the balcony of our upstairs room were magnificent, the best in town,... More
