This hotel captures the wonderful vibe of McLeodGanj which is a magical place that seems untouched by time and the outside world. Chonor House maintains a lot of ethnicity to give tourists an authentic experience, but still has all the conveniences that a traveller would look for: comfortable rooms, efficient service, wifi and a good in house restaurant.

My friend and I were there in mid July. Initially we booked for four nights but even before the first night, we cancelled our booking. Unfortunately, the hotel didn't let us cancel the booking without paying cancellation fees. We ended up finding a middle way - we had to stay for two nights. We really appreciated it when the hotel... More

Chonor House is a beautiful hotel that is affiliated with the Norbulingka Institute. The entrance is located up a small alley across from the entrance to the main Dalai Lama temple. Each room has its own theme and is decorated with Tibetan art and textiles--just gorgeous. Friendly, helpful staff. The food at the hotel restaurant was delicious and they had... More

Loved the character, the café and all the sweet people working at Chonor House. My only complaint was the WIFI access was very spotty. The area is local to many great places. The Tibetan museum just down the street is a must!
