“Good hotel good location but not so good amenities”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

The hotel is located in a beautiful landscape surrounded by the mountains and greenery all around. Food was also good. But one thing which was missing was wifi connectivity in our rooms located on the first floor. And ironically all the rooms are located on and above first floor only and connectivity is available on the ground floor i.e. reception.

Room Tip: wifi not available

Location of the hotel is fine with a good view of the Valley. It depends on the rooms you are allocated. Please do not take the Cottage. It is located slightly away from the hotel and the room are bad.Service is fine.

If budget hotel is what you are looking for --- This is the one
Perfect with amenities and yet great pricing is what makes this hotel special

Probably because its a little out of Dharamsala and Mcloed ganj

But if you have your own conveyance then this hotel is a great bet

although the food and service options are limited

also they do not have an elevator which is a pain because you might get a room 2 - 3 floors underground and walking back up to the dining or reception area is not convenient if you are tired after a day's trip

I stayed here for 2 nights and was definitely satisfied with what I got !!

Room Tip: Try to book rooms one floor above or below the reception as they dont have an elevator !!!

We stayed here in mid june for 2 nights. It is located a little ahead of dharamsala city on the way to Mcleodganj, 10 kms in a quiet place. It makes it quite convenient if you want to go to dharamsala market - kotwali bazaar, chamunda devi temple, mata kunal pathri temple, tea gardens which are all towards dharamsala and at the same time upwards to Mcleodganj and Naddi (last point by road). So we spent days at crowded, noisy tourist spots during the day but still could get a sound sleep at this nice hotel at night. Saves you also from the traffic of mcleodganj. We booked the rooms online, though there is no online mode of payment but they provide you with their account number and you can transfer half the amount. We were little apprehensive about that but turned out to be reliable. They do provide room service for food, dnt have a restaurant but watever they provide tastes good. Also, there are 2-3 restaurants nearby as well. City heart restaurant in kotwali bazaar is nice. Food at Dharamasala & Mcleodganj is little cheaper than in Delhi and around. The hotel has a valley view and mountain view, both are amazing as mountain view gives u snow peaked mountains right outside your window. We took the premium rooms with AC, though we didnt use AC but they are new I believe so very neat and clean, very spacious rooms and washrooms. Just do not leave anything expensive behind, coz the hotel staff didnt even lock the doors to the rooms after cleaning :| and when we told them they just said, oh is it? And they do provide hot water in the bathroom at all times, but of course you should take bath around 8am if you want to leave early for sightseeing coz if ppl in all rooms start using hot water at the same time, it becomes a prob. Though rest everything was quite good including the parking space, ambience, staff. Overall I will recommend this hotel strongly and would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: Valley view has nice view to the valley, mountain view is towards parking space and road but still g...

We had a very nice experience staying in hotel pong view. Seriously speaking we never thought that we ll get such a pleasant view from it's rooms. They have two sections : One on the main road and one a lil downstairs/downhill. We stayed in downhill one. The interiors were wooden and were brand new and guess what- Only at price 1100, so it was unbeatable price for such a nice hotel. Food experience awesome, esp the staff ppl were so helping and courteous that you ll feel like they r ur frnds. we went there at the peak time of christmas and believe me out of the whole 4 days himachal trip, pong views was our best experience! Hats off to you ppl srsly for such a budgest hotel and full facilities. My strong recommendation to all ppl srsly!!

Housekeeping staff will not attend to your room unless you call for them,, so no new sheets/towels etc unless you ask for it,, Food was average,, dnt fall for pong view as the pong dam is 70 km away,, and you might bbe very lucky if you are able to get a glimpse of it...
