“Can't get better than this!!!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

A place that is totally worth it! Amazing rooms. Great valley view. Pocket friendly. Very helpful and warm staff. The place has it all. I stayed for 3 days and i could not be happier with my choice. A lot of foreign travellers stay here. The location of the place is excellent. A special thanks to Mr. Ram Swaroop, owner of Kareri Lodge.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

It is located just stone's through away from the Dalai Lama Temple and other attractions in Mcleodganj. Having stunning scenic views of Kangra valley from room windows and balconies. Rooms are very tidy and well decorated with minimal efforts. Staff was very warm and generous. Last but not least, place has everything for pleasant stay indeed very pocket friendly.

P.S.: Advance online booking is advised specially in season due to heavy rush.

Room Tip: All the rooms blessed with great views.

We stayed at Kareri lodge for 3 nights. The rooms are overlooking the valley and has really awesome views. The hotel is very affordable and much better many other hotels in Mcleod. The hotel manager Mr.Ram Swaroop was very helpful and he even gave us a free upgrade to a deluxe room for the first night! He gave some very good suggestions for trekking around Mcleod.

All in all, we had a wonderful stay and I'd highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The Rs.990 room was the one we stayed in and it is the best value for money. Choose a room which ove...

We stayed with Ram in April 2014 and had a beautiful 10 day stay, we could have stayed longer but had to move on as we had already stayed 4 days etc then planned. McLeod Ganj is a perfect community hub that is ideal place to get away and relax, with its friendly faces and beautiful mountains its a true start to staying in the Himalayas. Ram's hotel just tops the mark though, we stayed in the room downstairs and the views over the Kangra Valley were perfect, we are backpacking for the year and although the cost is a tad more then usual we felt it was worth it for the view and luxury of the room alone, we spent many days enjoying the sun on the balcony or snuggled in doors when the heavens opened. The room is decorated in a old fashioned way but it doesnt stop the warmth of this hotel and the delights of the people working there. With our chai delivered with a smile in the way i would recommend Ram's Kareri Lodge to everyone, actually we already have.

Room Tip: Beautiful views, friendly owner and staff.

Stayed: March 2014
An excellent hotel by most standards. We booked the room on top with the big balcony. The tariff was Rs.1540, which apart from sitting perfectly within our budget, seemed a steal considering the size of the room and the view it offered. The panoramic view of the valley certainly adds flavour to the morning tea as you sit sipping it in the balcony. The bathroom too was spacious and clean. The owner of the property, Mr. Swaroop, is a delight to talk to, very helpful. Certainly there are lots of other cheaper hotels in Mcleodganj, but for those who prefer easy accessibility and would rather avoid the hustle and the bustle of the streets, this is the best bet. Very pleased!

This place is a simple not very charming, straight forward building. Its overall a no nonsense place with no frills except the basic clean rooms, clean bathrooms, hot water, TV and a window with some seating. What sets this place apart are the views (have to be the best in Mcleod), proximity (yet away from the madness) to the mall road and the people running the place. It is close to many restaurants / road side eating options yet away from all the touristy madness. Also, the place is very very reasonably priced and the great thing is that they don't bargain. We will definitely be staying here again the next time we visit Mcleod
