This hotel is an excellent value for money,keeping in mind the tastefully decorated room, room amenities and above all its superb location. The staff was exceptionally nice, helpfull & in a good mood all the time which made it so easy and at home to stay there. Never once did I feel neglected or insecure.

I stayed in the hotel from 05Jun2015 to 08Jun2015. The place is neat and clean. It is Maintained by a Tibetan Family and the family members are very courteous. But we missed Mr.Gailey with whom I communicated for the bookings. The hotel needs one or two Official Mobile connections as their land-line does not get connected. The exterior of the... More

The hotel is a nice building, fairly spacious but a small bathroom. The staff were good, they arranged a dawn trip to see the sunrise on Tiger Mountain for us. The location is good being only a short walk from the main shopping areas and sights. The main problem with the room was that in November it was quite cold... More
