“Hotel Filth”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Stayed here on our way to Jammu. The room we were given was dirty, the bed cover so filthy that it was shiny with greasy marks. The bedsheets were dirty, stained and the room was infested with insects. We arrived there very late and had no choice hence made do with whatever was given to us. We paid 2000/- for the filthy room. The only saving grace was hot water in the bathroom. The whole place stank. In the morning we were hassled by the staff to pay our bills that we had already paid the night before. No receipts were given to us for any of the money we paid. Definitely the worst place we have ever stayed in.

Always go for hut. There are no atm in 7 km radius and no card payment facility. We stayed in a 2BHK type hut with kitchen which has gas cylinders n stove.
Evening are very cold even in July which is like hottest month in this part of world. Gool gape/pani puris are awesome specially water used in it.

Do not ever plan to stay there...worst property smelly rooms and unhigenic carprets anf bathroom full of insects
And they charge at a price of 5 star an d property worse than 0 star

Patnitop is a very beautiful place but d ue govt negligence no improvement for that area
You can come but book some best hotel there only instead of govt huts

I stayed at hut no. 3 on 19th June 2014 with my 3 friends during our journey from Chandigarh to Srinagar. I stayed here second time and got the same experience.
This is great property and i love to stay here because of very big garden, natural beauty, relaxing and peaceful atmosphere but all this comes with some compromises like

1. JKTDC has failed to manage it properly.
2. The entire property needs immediate renovation.
3. The food quality needs to be improved.
4. JKTDC should make alternative arrangements for booking as many times their web site doesn't respond.
5. The garden and property needs regular cleaning and maintenance.
6. The entire kitchen stuff needs immediate replacement.

However this makes you enjoy the Patnitop, cook your own food in fully furnished kitchen of your hut and relax in lap of nature.

Room Tip: Book in advance. Hut no. 4 & 5 have better status Bargain hard for pony ride

We stayed in the Hotel, last week. The place has a rather nostalgic feel. It is right in the middle of Patnitop where one should be if you want to enjoy the nature. There are a number of cons:
1. Rooms are not well maintained.
2. poor room service
3. Normal food quality
but inspite of all these cons, I still love this place as it's in the midst of nature and the place where you should be if you want to enjoy this resort. Do remember to get advance booking done from The JKTDC website.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors are the best
