This is a lovely HPTDC property at Dharamsala. Rooms are really huge. Take the ground floor corner room, its really large. All rooms have balconies with a nice view. The property could do with better maintenance though. Carpets and furniture are not well maintained. Can see stains and burns at many places. I think the major issue with this lovely... More

Hi, I stayed at The Kunal in the month of April 2014, this was a leisure trip. I wanted to stay at Bhagsu Palace, which is at McLeodganj... but that property was out of rooms then. So I had to chose between The Kunal and The Dhauladar in Dharamshala, as I wanted to stay in one of the HPTDC properties.... More

Hotel Kunal is a pleasant surprise. Our room in 2nd floor was very clean, spacious and well furnished. The Dhauladhar range is visible from the room. Service was excellent and prompt. Food was tasty. On the whole, it was absolutely value for money.

We were to Dharamshala last week. Our stay at the Kunal, was good. Staff is good. Rooms are spacious. Go for Semi Deluxe rooms, tariff Rs. 1000/- plus taxes. and service charges. Their restaurant serves good food. This HP Tourism property is value for money.

We travelled to Himachal Pradesh in April 2012 and had a great time staying at Hotel Kunal for 2 nights. I landed up in Dharamshala and started looking out for place to stay, this place was in close proximity to the Bus stand, but stood away from crowd. Great view to wake up in the morning, spacious clean rooms(though with... More

Hotel Kunal is property of HPTDC. I was there with family for 2 days in oct 2012. Its location is good, very safe, a very little far from market.( 10-15 minutes walk or 2 minutes by car). It has own car parking. Rooms are very big in size with very clean beds, bedsheets. Bathrooms in rooms are very clean, big... More

Hotel is maintained by Himachal Pradesh Tourism. It is good place to stay, food is also good. But look wise it is only average. Worth a night or two for stay if you want to visit the place. This exactly near the market, you can also visit the Memorial next to it.

terrible stay, terrible service, terrible food, the rude staff will be at ur service. if they don't want to serve they even disconnect the room phone so that u don't disturb them. If u face any problem or discomfort, they all are helpless fellows and nothing can bother them. the typical 'sarkaari' approach that it seems no one in the... More
