The hotel is nestled just a couple of hundred meters off the fabled Hindustan Tibet road, about 60 km from Shimla. With ample parking space this could be your pit stop on a driving holiday on this legendary route. But in the winters the driveway is usually covered with thick snow – but adds to the fun of reaching the... More

Had to stay in this hotel on an unplanned basis, caused by heavy snow. The view from the hotel is just out of the world as it is on edge of a hill and faces other mountains of the Himalayan range. Food choice is limited, but all we tried was good. One problem is that it is difficult to drive... More

Hatu, a very small HPTDC hotel in Narkanda has a beautiful view and surprisingly, quite nice rooms. We had snow all around in the courtyard and car park where, a board read " please do not pick flowers." Since its a small hotel the service can be quite good if you tip them in advance. The food was excellent and... More

This is the second time I stayed at the Hatu - January 1 - 4, 2015. It is a government property located at an excellent spot. Beautiful views of the valley infront. Lovely lawn to sit and relax, have bonfire in the evenings etc. This time it was snowing, and the scenery became even more beautiful. Checkin in was smooth... More

As usual HPTDC has this hotel at one of the best locations in Narkanda. Though going up to the hotel from the main road in winter looks a bit tricky. The good thing is the food and hotels proximity to Hatu peak. Service of the hotel is also good and the open lawn with chairs is something I love to... More

This is a nice property under hp govt. Staff is polite and helpful..but food quality was poor...I would suggest residents to try food in the nearby town..rooms are cozy but could be better maintained. The upkeep of the lawns was also poor. Location was excellent...overall a budget hotel but lovely location...

This is the best residential location at Narkanda on top of a hill overlooking the valley. The road from the bus stand to the hotel meanders through deep forest. While the front side of the hotel overlooks the valley beneath, the other three sides of the property are surrounded by thick forest that mystifies the surroundings. They have maintained a... More

This is the best location in Narkanda... right on top of the mountain and looking down on everything else. This is a decent hotel but does need some upkeep and is on the lower end of the HPTDC hotels; quite a shame since this could be the best. Room are worn out and could do with refurbishment. Take the corner... More
