The HPTDC Hotel Hatu has a beautiful location. The room was clean and faced the lawn with a beautiful mountain view. The attached bath was fully equipped with geyser and all necessary amenities. The hotel is a short uphill walk from the main chowk/bus stand. For people drivng in, there is ample parking space in the hotel. The staff is... More

As the other reviews suggest, This hotel has extra ordinary view and isolated location despite of being at walk-able distance from NH 22. The rooms where having room heater, TV and all the basic amenities But as soon as you enter your room you find that you are precisely in a Govt. Property. Faded furniture, Faded bed sheets, Pillow covers... More

Right from the place to rooms, hotel service, food - Hotel Hatu in Narkanda stands tall like the Shivaliks. HPTDC owns a brilliant property overlooking a sleepy village and as you see beyond, be ready to lose yourself to the beauty of Himachal. Winters would be freezing cold - even in April we had to wrapped up in woolens for... More

We are currently staying in this hotel. The view from room is awesome. You'll have a feel like as if you are staying amidst the Pine trees... with birds chirping all the time... the food is awesome specially Chicken Makhani.. the rooms are very clean and beautiful. The hospitality provided is very prompt and good... i am cherishing my stay.

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
