Nice place to stay in Katra if you dont want much from the place. It is away from the city center noise. Very peaceful place. The hotel is continously improving its standards to gain more visitors. Awesome location. lots of open space.

If you are looking to stay at a reasonably priced Hotel, with spacious & clean Rooms, then go for it. The Restaurant food is very good, but service is a bit slow at times. The location is very near to Banganga, 15mins walk. If you compare this to all the Hotels in its vicinity, then you will definitely love this... More

Stayed in JKTDC Hotel Saraswathi for 2 nights during pilgrimage to Vaishnodevi. Good hotel. Booked on line. Courteous staff. Restaurant attached. Food is not very good, but yes manageable as there are other good restaurants like Sagar Ratna (about 1/2 km away).
