Pink House
Ranked #3 of 29 Hotels in McLeod Ganj
Reviewed March 24, 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights. Great service, and a good roof top restaurant for breakfast. It's a little bit of a hike from the road on some steep steps, but that wasn't an issue for us. Only complaint was that in the bathroom the shower area wasn't separate, so it got everything wet and mouldy.

basic accommodation, away from the road not recommended for old people. Had booked this based on online review. On arrival didn't match up to expectations. Was traveling along with parents un-comfortable for them to walk down the stairs to reach the hotel

Room Tip: no parking available, located near a single lane steep road

Dear Siddharth,

Thank you so much for staying with us and dropping a feedback of the same.
I'm deeply disturbed by the fact that your experience at Pink House wasn't up to your expectations.
Regarding the fact about being off the main road and stairs, I'd like to reiterate that it has been mentioned on the homepage of our website and we always tell our guests before hand regarding the same.

While the location might be a bane for some, it's also a boon for many as it means that the view of the Himalayas is unmatched and our guests can gaze at this view without the noise that plagues the properties on the main road.

As I mentioned before, I'm disappointed that your stay did not end with a smile on your face and if possible, I'd love to make up for it in any possible way. I hope you'd come back to stay with us and we'll try extra hard to make your holiday a wonderful experience.

Hope to see you soon.

Stayed here for 2 nights and arrived late on the first night. Very quick check-in with a friendly welcome. Room was better than many we have had around india, clean sheets, good facilities and hot water. Room service is a bonus with good food to go with it. The staff are incredibly helpful and speak good English. Location was great with some steps to walk up to the main road but you are a short distance to the noisy square which you don't hear in this hotel. Recommend it

Room Tip: Expect to go down some steps when you arrive with not much lighting but when the taxi drops you off...

Went on a solo trip to McLeod Ganj recently, and needed a place within my budget. I had little idea of what place to book, and thanks to TripAdvisor, landed on their page. What struck me was the management's response to most of the reviews on the site. So, I decided to go ahead and book a room.
When I landed in McLeod Ganj, it was very cold, and had begun to rain. Spoke to the manager, who immediately sent someone to fetch me from the bus stop. I only had to go a little distance before he found me, and guided me to Pink House. I asked for an early check-in, and the management was gracious enough to accommodate me that way. They later moved me to a room with a great view of the hills. The room, the bathroom, and the balcony were clean, and the bed cozy. Not to mention free wifi, which worked most of the time, barring when a cable theft happened in the area.
To me, it was their service and their promptness that made the difference. The manager was very polite and helped me customise tour options. He also guided me on how to go about it. The staff was equally helpful, and very courteous. Overall, a great experience that only enhanced my trip to McLeod Ganj. I will surely be returning here.

Nothing wrong with this hotel. Nice and helpful staff, good price, clean rooms and fine food. Had no problems at all. Don't expect anything special, it's a rather basic accommodation, but it is priced accordingly.

Pink House has rooms with a great view of McLeod Ganj, in a good location and for reasonable prices. Rooms should have a better wind isolation though, since in cold days it may get freezing even inside rooms.

Hello,

Thank you so much for staying with us and giving us a feedback of the same.
I'm glad that you found your stay comfortable.
Regarding your feedback about the rooms, we do accept that on the rare occasion when it's below freezing outside, it does get slightly nippy inside. On such occasions, we give our guests extra quilts, room heaters and even an electric blanket if required.
Rest assured, we'll go to any length to keep our guests warm and happy.

Please visit us again. Would love to have you over.

Spent two vacations in Pink House. The hotel is at an ideal distance from the main market as the surrounding environment is not very noisy and the walk to the main market, works up a good appetite. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the view from the terrace is quite beautiful. The hotel is decently priced, but nothing great. Didn't try the food there, so no comments.
