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

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...
