“Have a look around & you would be amazed to see the unexplored bliss in the lap of Himalaya”
We stayed at Rupin River View, Rakcham during our road trip to Himachal in the second week of August’12 along with my wife & my 3.6 years daughter. We didn’t book the hotel in advance, though we should have, & luckily got a room, which we needed badly after a drive of 15 hours from Noida. The hotel is located right on the road with ample parking & is the only concrete structure hotel at Rakcham, as most of the accommodations available were camp sites besides River Baspa. We got a room at ground level (please note that the 1st Floor & the entry is at the road level). The room was a basic accommodation with a double bed, couple of chair & table & the bath room was spacious with a geyser, but at Rakcham it is the best. As we travelled during Monsoon, we could hear the raging Baspa flowing next to the hotel.
The restaurant was located at the second floor with amazing view of Baspa valley. The menu at the restaurant had variety of choices & the food was really good. They even served at the room which generally they don’t, as I reached late & was damn tired.
The hotel staff was generous specially Vikas Mehta, who looks after the hotel in absence of Mr. Jisthu. I had paid the advance for 3 days, but had to change the program to which Vikas simply said no issue, the balance would be refunded.
Please also note that the hotel is packed most of the time so book in advance during peak season & the room tariff varies for every floor (top floor with higher tariff & the ground floor with the lowest tariff). I would surely love to visit Rakcham & Rupin again.
Note: Airtel works fine at Rackcham & the only TV is at the restaurant of the Hotel.
