This was my third stay at Pema Thang and it is a nice oasis in McCleod Ganj just above the hustle and bustle of town. The owners and staff are very welcoming with Tibetan hospitality. Accomodations are simple and clean and it is best to have an upper floor room which offers a view of the Dalai Lama Temple. If... More

Clean, quite, and best view on the mountains. The restaurant is excellent (dont miss the fried chomomo). The manager is a nice guy and the staff is helpful. Pema is the right place to be in Dharamsala;

We stayed in this hotel for a total of 9 nine nights over two different periods whilst we were in Dharamshala. I liked it very much. The location is great - away from the crowds but close enough to get to everything within 5 minutes. Simple, clean rooms with good wifi and a wonderful balcony overlooking the Dalai Lama's temple...

A few good things about this place: the location (in the heart of the town, yet away from the maddening crowd), spacious rooms (no frills, though) and reasonable price list. The family that runs this place is pretty sweet, especially the old gentleman who manages the restaurant. His cheerful ''good morning'' greetings can actually make your day! We stayed at... More

Two great things about this place are the location and the family that runs it. It close to the town center but far enough away that the noise level is not to bad, though I still slept with earplugs. The folks who run it are also very nice and try as hard to be helpful as possible. On the other... More

Great location near enough to the centre of McLeod Ganj but far enough from the main hustle and bustle with spectacular views of the mountains and the valley. The rooms are spacious and clean with good shower facilities and cable TV. The on-site restaurant is nothing spectacular but the food is good, good breakfast and pizzas and a nice terrace... More

I jus recently spent 5 days in Dharamsala. I liked the place a lot. The restaurant improved a lot, it underwent some major renovation and I decided to host a vegetarian dinner for 10 people that was swiftly organised by the restaurant manager. The food was excellent! The staff and owner are very eager to serve you at their best.... More
