“Nice rooms, not so great Management”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This place is located in Old Manali. A real traveller's hangout area, so first of all decide if that is what you want otherwise it can really effect your overall stay.
Dragon guest house has nice and simple rooms with reasonable bathrooms as well. The rooms are typical of a guest house and are of a good quality compared to the rest in the area. The restaurant also serves very good food.
The management though were very rude and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on things to do in the area. They are only interested if you are in a group and they can make money off you by organising it for you. When I told them I was leaving they changed their tone somewhat.
Jaganath who works there is very helpful.
Manali is a very beautiful area, be careful not to get caught up too much in the Old City itself. Go out and explore, trek..

Room Tip: Negotiate your room rate! Huge discounts available.

The family rooms are great for the view, n regular double bed rooms are clean n spacious for 2 - 3 people.

The food and the service from the staff is good..

The room heaters could be more powerful.

Note that there are no lifts so carrying heavy luggage may be an issue.

We had been given the pent house. Very good for a family. View was good. Rooms were clean. Small wash room. Proximity to city was very close. Restaurant served good food. The fish grilled was really nice. Staff was ok. Parking a bit small.

My husband and I stayed a night at the Dragon Guest House. It is not a peak season, so we managed to stay here at a discounted rate. The room is clean, friendly staff, good environment and food is available within 5 minutes walk. We really love this place.

Five of us stayed four nights at the Dragon Guesthouse. Very helpful, friendly staff, nice clean rooms at a reasonable price (discounted because it was the end of the season.) Comfortable beds, although if you like a top sheet you need to bring your own, or a sheet sleeping bag, and my towel was a bit well used. You need to buy your own toilet paper from the little shop up the alley. At night it's very quiet.

The restaurant was very good, well priced and had a good selection of dishes. The serving staff were lovely, and always cheerful.

We booked our bus to Dharamshala in the office, where they have some computers you can use. There's also WiFi. Altogether a very good place to stay, and if you go at the end of the season Old Manali is nice and quiet, and very clean. We also had perfect weather for our stay.

Room Tip: The rooms on the ground floor get WiFi inside the room. Otherwise you need to sit on the balcony or...
