The room I got has wall-to-wall windows, one of which faces snowcapped mountain. Its hot water tank never fails to generate enough hot water. Mr Narender Kapoor the hotel manager is very helpful for arranging any service such as taxi, trekki, paragliding with the best deals and reliability. 91 94184 50940. Himalayanjourney.in

Left the hotel to get breakfast, but had to return to the room 5 minutes later to use toilet. Padlock gone, room locked from inside. Door eventually opened, and some guy asked if this was my room? He apologised and left - with no luggage

We were overwhelmed by Javed's sincerity, dedication and hospitality. He is hardworking and genuinely tries to help visitors. He was our last hope in the peak tourist season at Mcleodganj and he did not disappoint us. The rooms and basic but clean, the food options are limited but tasty. The sitting arrangement at lounge area, free Wi-Fi makes hotel Akash,... More

To be fair - our stay began comfortably. Our room had a nice, privte balcony with stunning view of the mountains and the woods. The couple who owns the place seemed to be nice. However, plumbing wasnt any good and locking the door was a struggle - the door didnt really fit its frame. The owner left and the staff... More

I (foolishly) stayed here for almost a month this spring (I must admit - it's a great view and the cafe seemed cozy). I initially succumbed to the charm offensive by management, but here are a few things that just piled up and made me seek out a much superior room in the same neighborhood for less money: Laundry shouldn't...
