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.

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.
