Stayed for a couple of days, the view from the room was amazing, very clean, the bathrooms are very good. I was glad to have some great home cooked meals after very long days of travel. It was great to just chill in the bottom floor dining room, watching people and animals go about their day and watching monsoon rains.... More

The room service is very poor and the staff is very rude with no etiquette how to behave with customers I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT NO ONE SHOULD STAY THERE. The staff is not trained in dealing with customers.

This clean hotel is situated just 5mins walk from main market in Mcleodganj. The rooms are spacious and have an excellent view from the balcony. For the rooms with the best view, the rooms at the 2nd and 3rd floor should be booked. The momos prepared here in the restaurant beat momos prepared in the rest of Dharamshala/Mcleodganj. The restaurant... More

A good budget hotel located centrally to most of the attraction (Dalai Lama Temple, Bhagsunag Waterfall, St.John Chuch) in McLeod Ganj. Rooms are newly renovated, bright and spacious. All deluxe rooms have a balcony with mountain view. The staff were very nice and cooperative. The restaurant serves good food (tried Chinese) at reasonable price. Zambala house is a good budget...

I and my friend stayed with our families for 2 days at this place and I only have a good things to say about this place. The only limitation is that the kitchen opens at 7:30AM and closes at 9:30PM, so if you want to eat/drink anything beyond this, you have to go out. The other limitation is that they... More

Zambala was definitely the best hotel we stayed in during our 3-month travel of India. Our room was clean clean, bright and spacious with a comfortable sitting area. The bathroom is just like Lonely Planet says, 'the cleanest in town'! The roof top is spectacular with lovely sunsets. Being close to the Dalai Lama temple and at the end of... More

4 of us stayed at Zambala House late October. The rooms were large and clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good. Breakfasts were good and substantial and we particularly recommend the Tibetan Porridge. We ate lunch there on one day. We had a long wait for our Momos as they were prepared and cooked... More

We fled here after an appalling night in another hotel and loved it. For the same price Zambala House gave us a huge, clean, comfortable room with a balcony and lovely mountain and valley views. Views from the roof terrace offered stunning sunsets. Room service for breakfasts was always prompt and the food was fine. We did not have other... More

I stayed at Zambala House in July 2013 with my mom. It is a great hotel, and worth the expense. First, the views are simply spectacular down to the plains (at least when the clouds roll out). Second, the room actually feels "modern," as the bedding and furniture are not worn. The bathrooms are great (and even have a shower... More
