Here are some experience to share: - Location: quite approachable, scenic valley view, lots of open space to sit,enjoy the tea. - Rooms: Simple yet comfortable. Dont expect TV with all channels but who... More

Hotel HATU has just one positive thing and that is its location. Slightly uphill from main town. Rooms are just average. Though everything is there like Hot water in bathroom, view of valley, but furnishing in rooms are pretty old. Food was just average so we had nice breakfast at Negi dhabha new bus stand.

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.

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
