Hotel Himalaya Castle
Ranked #20 of 74 Hotels in Mussoorie
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 12, 2013

I go to Mussoorie to relax and ease my head off! I find this hotel very suitable as it offers a very good view of the Hill Station as the hotel is situated on a hill top overlooking Mussoorie.

Their lawn in front of the rooms is great to sit during sunrise and sunset. The best part of this hotel is that it doesn't even feel like a hotel! It's got a very nice homely feel to it.

Location wise, a 5 mins walk from the Mall Road, yet a very secluded and peaceful. They also have a pretty big parking area.

Their staff is really cooperative. The olden style building adds on to the ambiance. The rooms are spacious and have a very warm feel. Food is also nice, especially the Aloo Parathas.

If you enjoy a nice, non swanky hotel with a very homely feel you should try this place.

Room Tip: Rooms on the First Floor.

I stayed in October . It is situated on a hill top hence it has a breathtaking view,yet only a five minutes walk to the mall .The rooms are spacious and well maintained .The food quality was nice and the place has a homely atmosphere as it is very well kept by the owner .Will definitely come back .

I went this year with my frenz & stayed there ... though I would say the location was definately good but the place itself was average in my opinion. It could have been better considering the price is not that cheap... we paid around 4000 for 2 small rooms for a day & in that price I expected better experience.

Anyhow good things to point out - Awesome view, fresh air, fresh prepared food, ample parking space, spacious lawn to stay in afternoon with cool breeze & sunshine (in summers).
Things could have been better - Avg rooms, old style decorum, no shuttle service etc. to mall road, no in house play services like pool / billiards or swimming pool, no Wifi.

Overall considering the location, I would have given an easy 4 provided if they can add a few services like Billiards room & Wifi service.

Room Tip: Definitely choose rooms with mountain view, either rooms on the top for just view or on base floor f...

Situated right above Mall road in Mussoorie (on 5 minutes walking), ample parking, green lawn, open terrace sitting with valley view, bigger rooms, old structure...simply very good.
Rooms have both side view of front and back side valley. Rate also is cheaper for rooms. The only concern is about restaurant (since they've outsourced it) currently it lacks a little in service, it requires improvement.
Rest is very good.

Its just beautiful. It is peaceful. And you need not to go anywhere if you are staying at this Hotel. Such a big Hotel with best views. And the food was amazing. it takes around 10 minutes by foot to reach mall road, although the road is a bit steep, but once u return back to hotel, seeing the view from the hotel you will definitely get recharged. Thanks to Mr. Prabhat Vaish, owner of this heritage property. He has maintained this property so well. Its worth going thousand times.
