Booked this hotel for our family vacation. Booking itself was not easy as even after transferring 10k , I had to prove that it was indeed me who transfered the amount. Not sure if someone else was claiming the same or what. Coming to location- very near to dalai lama temple but little far from main market. Also the walk... More

Rooms were pretty and traditional, but designed very badly. I booked the suite. They had cupboards in the room, but you could not even open them because the bed was situated there. The small drawers outside were so small, you could barely keep anything!! The geyser never worked, Everytime we wanted to use it, we had to call housekeeping to... More

Warm, friendly and helpful staff made this 3 day visit a comfortable stay. It is a bit of a trek up the hill to get to the hotel but well worth it. Just a few steps away from the monastery and plenty of shops and restaurants. We were on a tour so I have no advice for getting around. We... More

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
