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...

Except for the following situation. At the beginning the guy on the reception offer us 400Rp for the room. But then after we cheked... More

For a budget hotel in a place where there is a distinct absence of luxury hotels, this is an acceptable option. Yes, the staff are not particularly helpful and the place is about as basic as it comes, but it's a bed for the night at an extremely small price.
