“See the Holy Ganges from your Hotel”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

I spent three very satisfactory days at this hotel. Five star it is not. But it is a very serviceable place to stay. The chief draw is the absolutely incredible unobstructed view of the Ganges from the room. I give bonus points for a friendly and helpful staff and manager. And the restaurant Station 58 is small but serves good food. I ended up taking all of my meals there. The location can't be beat. It's in the heart of the city but away from the chaos & hustle bustle of the town. The hotel is five minutes drive to Har-ki-Pairi and has a Ganga Ghat with temple right across the road where I took a holy dip. It was just simply great!

Dear All,

We would like to share our terrible experience of staying in Hotel Gang Tarang in Haridwar. Before proceedings to Chhardham Yatra, we stayed in Hotel gang Tarang on 13/5/2011. The hotel Gang Tarang is situated near Singh Dwar in Haridwar. We reached the hotel at around 4:30 pm. We were a group of 22 persons and had taken 9 rooms in the hotel. After unloading the luggages, and placing them in respective rooms, we went for Ganga Snan and Ganga Aarti. Before proceedings, we locked our rooms and deposited the keys to the reception as the key holders were huge and bulky. Also this a regular system in such hotels.

We happily came back at around 8:30 pm. However, our happiness turned into terror in short while thereafter. After taking rest for 10 minutes, we proceeded for dinner. One of our member informed us that their money (approx Rs. 60,000) has been stolen from their bag. As a matter of caution, we all searched our bags and found that money has been stolen from 4 of our bags from 3 different rooms. We immediately complained to the reception counter. The manager there was cool as if this is a regular feature there and informed us that he has called the owner Mr. Shakti Vardhan and as soon as he come, they will show us the CCTV footage and the thief will be caught. The managers did not have any sign of regret on their faces and were busy in watching IPL cricket matches.

After 15-20 Minutes, the owner of the Hotel Mr. Shakti [--] arrived with few of his friends and informed us that he will show us the CCTV footage for the period. When we tried to accompany him for checking the CCTV footage, his friends prevented us from accompanying him and told us that we cannot go there. Some times after that he came back and informed us that the CCTV was not working and therefore nothing could be recorded in it.

We immediately called police there. However, we felt that he has already influenced the police as the police was interrogating us instead of the hotel management. We lost all our hope and faith in Police as well. There after Police Inspector Mr. Pradeep [--], assured us that he will definitely take some action against the hotel management. We enquired with him on our way back on 24/5/2011 but in vain as no efforts were taken by Police in this respect.

We lost money amounting to approximately Rs. 1.50 Lacs along with our return railway tickets, credit cards etc.

The Hotel management is a big cheater and lier. We have a gut feeling that the management is involved in the theft.

The hotel website has been depicts a very nice picture of the hotel. But it is far from truth. The photographs uploaded on the website are false and the rooms do not look like as shown in the website.

We request you all to boycott this hotel and spread this information to anybody visiting Haridwar so that the incidence cannot be repeated by the Hotel management.
