Visited in June. The plus about this place is its terrace. The hotel is the highest point across mcleod and hence offers amazing 360 deg views of the valley. The sunset is worth watching from here. Rooms are average. Ground floor rooms are really noisy as they are adjacent to the reception area. The worst part of the stay was... More

I have been here 4-5 times already. It's really nice and calm hotel. Food menu is not that extensive, though there banana pancake is awesome. Room charges are based on what floor they are, rooms on upper floor have better view hence costlier. Rooms are really big and clean. Staff is very helpful. Not even 5 mins from market. For... More

Courteous Staff, Clean and big rooms, nice roof top, closer to the main market and Dalai Lama Temple. Don't forget to try the delicious Tibetan Breakfast combo (Alert: Tibetan tea has salt and butter in it, so choose as per taste) :)

I visited McLeod Ganj when the Dalai Lama was doing his teachings so it was very busy, I also wanted a little more high end than usual because I was going from the scorching Andaman Islands to snow at McLeod Ganj. It was worth the extra pennies (around 3000 rupees per night.) The hotel is well located very close to... More

McLeodganj caters to more of a backpacker scene, Zambala is one of the higher end options. The rooms are clean and the hotel staff were helpful. Try to get a room with a balcony, the view will render you speechless. There is also a rooftop restaurant which looks promising for summer time tourists. Otherwise, don't expect much. The hotel rooms... More

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
