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.

I will start by reminding that you get what you pay for. We booked the best room in this hotel, the suite, for less than thousand rupees per night. The discount is given by HPTC and you should check current discounts since it keeps changing. The hotel is located slightly away from the busy town amidst quieter surroundings. The hotel... More

Nice people and Service but room quality is average. It is in mid of the town and people expecting any nice view from room will be disheartened. And, Toilet quality was bad and had smell. As it is in the middle of town so you can hear traffic sound all the time.

This is one of the HPTDC properties which is located close to the market but the maintainance of the property is poor. If you happen to take the rooms on top floor beware that the monkey busines will take your sleep away for sometime. Also there was real big issue with water supply in the rooms as there was no...

The stay was very comfortable among the staff who are good with hospitality in nature and very efficient. Ranging from reception to the manager and the lower level staff, have impressed us during our stay period. The hotel fits well in the budget of middle segment of travelers like us. We always recommend to stay in the hotel.
