HTPDC hotels USP is location... and this is no different... located in a corner, in the hills, overlooking a valley, this hotel offers amazing uninterrupted view. Restaurant service is good and food is tasty but simple... and quite reasonable. There is a garden outside wherein one can soak the view in sun and enjoy a delicious meal... Recommended if one...

Narkanda is a quaint little town 70 kms from shimla enroute kinnaur & spiti valleys. Not many options to stay & among the ones that are available THE HATU is a very gud one. Being a govt run property it does not match the luxury or comforts offered by the upscale properties but it stands true to its purpose of... More

We reached there a day afyer snowfall, so it was difficult to drive right upto the hotel, they sent a housekeeping staff(who also happened to be an expert driver) 500meters downhill to drive my car up to the hotel. He was also... 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...
