We stayed here 1 night as we had a very early bus to catch the next day. The proximity to the bus station is probably the only good point we can mention. The reception staff were polite and helpful. This is a Himichal Tourist hotel which to us seemed a little odd as surely it is not the type of... More

We had booked a room at Kunal for two days,only the day before we arrived in Dharamsala.The taxi took us there, from Gaggal airport,(the minimum rate seems to be Rs 500) ,just 15 kms or so, and we found the place literally empty as it was off-season...The latest reviews of the hotel had ,of course, prepared us for the worst...

Location is good - on the main road, leading to bus-stand, and the market. Spacious rooms, ample parking, restaurant provides good food. Discourteous staff, stinking bed / linen, old and not-maintained property (of hptdc). Bathrooms seem to be recently renovated, so they are good.

A value for money place to stay. A HPTDC owned hotel. Good house keeping, courteous,helpful staff. You may also download the HPTDC application for your smartphone for detailed handy information. Serene surroundings compared to the market place.

This hotel is just places in between the two markets of dharamshala. The price is decent being an hptdc hotel. Now they have started booking online which makes booking very easy. The service and food is good. The place misses a scenic view though.

We took this hotel as it was closest to the bus stand from where all Volvos start and our trek was supposed to start from here early morning. The rooms are basic, bathrooms are below basic. But as its HP state tourism, the sense of security was there.

We stayed here for 4 new nights, being a govt owned property this hotel was an average hotel with basic amenities. Service was good. Friendly staff. Overall A budgeted hotel to stay. You can book these hotels on HTPDC.com at a reasonable discount, as they are full in peak season.

This is a nice Government hotel. Its tariff is on a lower side and gives a great value for money. The people at front desk and also the other staff are cooperative. They even arranged for an early check-in when we were waiting since morning and the official check-in time was 12.00 pm. The hotel is about one km from... More
