I (foolishly) stayed here for almost a month this spring (I must admit - it's a great view and the cafe seemed cozy). I initially succumbed to the charm offensive by management, but here are a few things that just piled up and made me seek out a much superior room in the same neighborhood for less money:
Laundry shouldn't take four days when it's promised in one (mine was lying littered around on the rooftop when I finally decided to get it myself). My bedding was quite old and unfit for chillier weather, and they charge extra for a duvet or heater. My double-bed had a hole the size of a foot with a piece of wood covering it (the manager pretended not to know about it). There was a garbage pail perennially left in the hallway without a lid and showing off used toilet paper. The cafe was more like a noisy living room often occupied by children and families. Dinner went right through me the only time I ate at the cafe. My TV barely operated. Most irritatingly, the plumbing sucked; I frequently had no hot water or no water at all, which commonly would last all day. By the time I left, I felt the owners had really taken me for a ride, and told numerous lies and half-truths to keep me there. My final word: Hotel Akash is emblematic of the grubby Dharamsala hotel leased by someone who only cares about his profit line.
