Hotel infrastructure & location is nice but faced hot water & room service problem. DTH facility was also not available. Food quality & taste is good & the view from the room is excellent. rooms are spacious.

Pros: The hotel is at good location (under Stupa), has many facilities/activities including folk dance once a week during evening. The choices for breakfast were good. Cons: The rooms were badly planned and not properly maintained. The staff seems friendly but is not responsible when you complain to them. The food is not even OK in taste and lunch was... More

hotel location, room and views: Very good. hotel staff: mediocore, except Rakesh Kumar who shines out like a gem among his mates. The front office most of the time is not managed by anyone and the manager [?] Sunil is unsmiling,unfriendly, laid-back, does precious little to inform the guests about local dos & donts and most of the time missing-in-action!...

Nice & small hotel on the Shanti Stupa Road, Wooden furnished rooms which are warm.The breakfast was OK as well. Overall nice place if you want to live away from the city center. Tip: Take an Enfield for local sight-seeing.

We booked the Thongsal after checking out reviews. Sadly, I was REALLY disappointed as the reviews and the price of the rooms did not match the services and state of the rooms. The standard room we booked was dingy, depressing and messy. The bathroom was not clean- with a broken dustbin and didn't even have a separate shower area. The... More

My stay at Thongsal Hotel was exceptional with the hotel manager Sunil Kumar professionally attentive to every request. The staff was polite, always smiling and greeting guests, and remembered my black tea for every meal. The food was freshly prepared and was always varied from meal to meal.Having eaten at many of Lehs' restaurants this was the best food in... More
