Very poorly managed hotel. for the price you pay like $50-$60. Rooms are filthy. Beds were unhygenic with smell and loads of hair. Staff was helpful , food was average. Location is good. we shunted out after one night.

We were traveling in a group and reached Katra around 6 A.M. It wasn't difficult to find the hotel, it is located right after the bus stand. We had made online reservation for non-AC rooms and had called in advance to say that we will be arriving early. At first the receptionist said since the check out time is 12... More

Bathroom exhaust was broken. Water jug they provided gave me suspicion of hygiene. Overall very average hotel. We paid them Rs 1000 for ground floor ac room in... More
