Zambala house has good rooms. But unfortunately the good things are done and dusted there itself. The toiletries were far from enough in the room. The staff looked a bit more interested towards serving foreign clients and not to Indians. The room I had was constantly disturbing with traffic/cars, might be from there car park. Generally, when you travel to... More

We stayed 5 nights at this hotel and it was the top hotel of our entire tour of India over 40 days. Everything about this hotel is excellent - staff, service, food, cleanliness, and all other trivial things. They made us feel homely and treated as part of their family. Very helpful with travel information and other useful tips. We... More

The staff are very hospitable and accommodating. The rooms are clean, and they are updating many of them. The bathrooms are the best I saw in the entire town - very spacious, clean, and up-to-date. The hotel has great views of the valley and is well-situated to walk to the center of town or His Holiness' main temple. I would... More

Room 402 My room was massive with a bathroom any hotel would be proud of, super clean, ultra modern and an honest hot water 24/7. Toiletries in... More

The location is extremely good. It is near jogiwara road (main road) but far enough that it's quiet. There is also a manager who tells wonderful, funny, and... More

The location is also very good. It's near the jogiwara road (the main road) but not so close that is is too noisy. Overall a very... More

I stayed here 2 nights and felt it was a good choice to see McLeod Ganj for the 1st time. Right above the Dalai Lama's complex and easy walking distance to the sights, but down a quieter road. You can find less expensive places, but not this nice and helpful. A good value for staying some place nicer. The owner... More

I spent a week in that hotel in early Nov 2015; the room (top floor, with a lift !!) was quite beautiful, very well equipped, with a splendid view. Quiet location, close to the centre of McLeod Ganj, and very friendly staff. Good experience, which I do not hesitate to recommend.
