Hotel Ambica offers value for money spacious rooms; ideal location with easy accessibility to the market, bus-stand; food joints; a beautiful garden and view of the vaishnodevi darshan path from the rooms.

This hotel is located half a kilometer before main bus stand of Katra. So it is pleasingly away from most crowdy spot in Katra. The lobby, the rooms are spacious and make you feel fresh. They have nicely maintained garden in the backyard. Bank and ATMs are very near. Staff is co-operative. Great place for families to stay and relax on the day next to Mata darshan. They also offer free pick-up and drop to Banganga. (One way trip to Banganag may cost you Rs.200, First time travelers to take a note.)

Room Tip: Rear rooms have their windows overlooking a garden.

Hotel is very conveniently located. 10 minutes walk from Market and bus stand. It is little away from noisy and pluted bus stand. It has some shops and a bank/ ATM in the premises. Food quality is good and reasonably priced. Maintenace needs to be looked into. As the entry in the hotel is generaly at odd hours depending on the yatra scedule, please check all amenities at the time of taking the room.Otherwise metenance may be a difficulty at that time. Generally house keeping is helpful.

I stayed in a three bedded AC room with my two daughters and my wife in the month of December 2012. Though they claim they provide 24 hours hot water but on repeated request they switch on the geyser. Staff are good and responds well, however they are to be requested twice to clean the room and change the bed linens and towels. Food is good and is served well in time. The main advantage is its location, as is located near the market and banks and ATMs are nearby.

We stayed here for couple of Nights during Nov'12. It is situated at the heart of Katra. You have to walk for 10 min for start of Maa Vaishandovei Yatra, Hotel, Staff, Service and Food are all good. Staff are very helpful.

Room Tip: Choose a room wth Garden View.
