This is a nice Government hotel. Its tariff is on a lower side and gives a great value for money. The people at front desk and also the other staff are cooperative. They even arranged for an early check-in when we were waiting since morning and the official check-in time was 12.00 pm. The hotel is about one km from... More

Stayed in the Semi-deluxe room of the Kunal during my recent visit to Dharmshala and McLeodganj. What impressed me most about this hotel are the great homely food in the restaurant and the friendliness of the staff (wait: I didnt say that they are the most efficient, but only said that they are friendly!) On the day of check-in, we... More

We stayed in Hotel Kunal at Dharamshala for 3 nights, during 3-6 October 2014. For a Room rent of Rs 1,000/- it was a very good experience. Rooms are big, well furnished, good bed linens and drapery. Toilets are very clean and well maintained with round the clock warm water. Though it is in lower Dharamshala but located at a... More

This hotel is located 10 minutes away from the bus-stand, and 15 minutes away from the bustling Kotwali Market. As such, if you travel from Shahpur or the Gaggal airport and take the longer route to Dharamsala, this hotel is the first thing you encounter. The hotel is okay.The staff could be better-behaved. We got a decentroom on the ground... More

We were in a group of twenty family members touring dharamshala in july. We landed at Kunal due to last minute changes in tour program. As it was spot booking, rooms of different categories were available scattered on all three floors and could see the difference in them. Rooms on upper floors are better than ground floor ones but again... More

It is a good hotel and true "value for money". Being a HPTDC Property their charges are fixed and don't shoot up in peek demand. The rooms are amazingly spacious but the room service is pathetic. All in all its the best you get in what you pay.
