A place of two halves us. We really loved the room, it was spacious, very good value and the Tibetan decoration was lovely. We also found the staff very helpful. What let it down for us was breakfast. When we were there only a Western breakfast (generally egg based) was available and the service was very slow, and some things... More

Chonor House is at an excellent location, within walk able distance of most things and a stones throw from the Dalai Lama Temple in Dharamsala. The rooms are spacious and everything in the room( cupboards, cots, mirrors) have a touch of art on them. The rooms and bathroom is comfortable. The hotel is on a slope, so it is a... More

We spent four lovely days in Songsten Suite of Chonor House. It's on the same level as reception but is quiet and peaceful. The suite is charming. Like the other rooms in Chonor House, it is beautifully done in Tibetan style. It has an attached balcony that overlooks trees and what you could call a garden. The bathroom is small... More

We visited the restaurant of the hotel and felt like we were missing out on something amazing by not staying at this place. It has an amazing view and is located a little away from the city, which helps given how noisy it gets by night. The restaurant serves authentic Tibetan food and the service was really great.

We stayed for 4 nights in this quaint hotel. It is Tibetan themed and well located next to the Dalai Lama's complex. However, i have to say that the hotel is somewhat dated, the restaurant food very basic (mostly bland) and slow service. The rooms are simply furnished and adorned with traditional Tibetan pieces. It is very noisy at times... More

Rooms are exquisite, position is perfect, I still miss the Tibetan broths and the restaurant really is divine for all meals, the lemon ginger mint tea is perfect, and really - rather spectacular. Staff are lovely and friendly, housekeeping mostly good. Ask for a courtyard room or one with a view. But all DIVINE!

An amazing hotel, run and managed by Tibetan Refugees in Asylum. The proximity to His Holiness The Dalai Lama, is an added attraction. The winding lanes from the main market take you to this beautiful estate. The rooms are luxurious, comforting and the walls are a "work of art". Each room is designed on a particular theme. This 12 room... More

From the moment we stepped in the Chonor House, we couldn't stop gushing over the lovely interiors offering so much warmth and coziness. Ours was a group so we got their Wild Room, Khama room, Amdo, Hibiscus and Blue Poppy Room and all were amazing. The walls had fabulous Art Work, great upholstery, linens... bringing alive the Tibetan culture. Food... More
