Seriously this hotel is really amazing, the staff are exceptionally helpful the owner Mr Javid is an amazing person, we became good friends after this trip, they helped my friend with her broken glass, he helped us finding other good hotels in shimla, and even when we came back to McLeod in an unexpected visit he managed to find us rooms in the hotel without prior reservation, the rooms are really clean with an excellent view of the mountains, it's warm as well, I slept really warm during November with their sheets, they got hot water always but the tank is enough for one shower in 40 mins, the place is soooooo nice

We came with a big group and enjoyed every moment of our stay. The staff members are very polite and was trying to provide the best service with a sincere smile. Our room had a balcony with outstanding mountain view. The food was excellent. Location is perfect as it is
close to the local market. The free Wi Fi is available at lobby area. We definitely recommend this hotel!!!

I would like to start by mentioning that i visit McLeodganj quite often.
I had read numerous reviews of Hotel Pink House and most of them mentioned the magnanimity of the owner Javed but could never stay there due to unsuitable location.
Then i came across this new property owned by the same guy on TripAdvisor and decided that this is where i would stay for my next trip.

Now, lets talk about the hotel.

Pros:
--The hotel has a flat tiled parking along with guard-rails. I hate parking my car on hill slopes, specially during monsoons.
--The hotel is very neat and clean.
--The rooms are clean, spacious, and tastefully furnished.
--The bathrooms are super-clean.
--The hotel staff was extremely helpful and very courteous. They did all that was possible to help you out even for the minutest of your requirements.
The Pancakes were delicious.

Cons:
--The approach is a steep hill climb where if you lose momentum, it gets very difficult to get your vehicle moving forward again. Thankfully, at-least it was a one-way road. By the time i parked my car, i could smell burning rubber.
--It is a long and steep climb to the market. Be prepared to work your calves and glutes.
(Please Note that the above two problems are not specific to this hotel but for all the hotels on Jogiwara Road.)
--There was a weird smell in the bathroom due to humidity but we left the exhaust fan on during our entire stay so it was fine.
--The food is not that great.


Overall, there isn't much wrong with this hotel.
They could improve the quality of food a bit but apart from that, i don't think that there is much room for improvement.
Though, it would be awesome if they provided a complimentary transfer to the market ;)
I would definitely stay here again :)
And did i mention that i have never encountered such courteous, well-mannered, and helpful staff in any hotel of this price range.
Thumbs Up to Mr. Javed

You get an uncluttered view of the mountains from quite big balconies that wrap around the room. Rooms are nice, done well and clean with. The hotel offers a free wifi service but the speed is poor and so is the connectivity.
Good hotel in moderate budget, staff is friendly and helpful!!!
