“view is good but service is very poor”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

not professional. service and house keeping is very bad n unhealthy. only positive point is attached bar and restaurant and good view. the blankets were dirty and the authority is casual. there are many staff but careless about customer convenience. it may due to the induction effect of the nearby bar. for comfort it s not the good place to stay.

The room was too small and ok types. We just had an overnight stay here.
But the food was fantastic. We wanted a ghar ka khana types dinner and we were provided with that. It was to perfect taste. We had a very good breakfast as well with decent variety.
They had prepared very good paratha and chole along with other regular stuff.

We were a group of friends who were looking for a place after our trek, close to the airport as we had an early morning flight.
Booking was not a hassle, done via mail & phone, they also agreed to us making the payment during check-in.They also agreed to a complimentary airport drop as we were foregoing the beakfast,
The appearance from outside is deceptive - that is , we were a little worried if we had done the right thing, but once inside, check in was swift,tired as we were ; small drawback - no lift, but I guess that's common in a hilly place.
Rooms were good, 24 hrs hot water from taps, just what we needed after a trek, hot food through room service which was good.
Overall, Shobla International served the purpose we stayed there for.......Clean room, clean bed, clean bathroom with hot water and efficient room service.
Not sure whether I would stay there for more than a day, but if I need a hotel in Kullu close to the airport, this is definitely value for money !!

First things first, it is so aptly located - this place - that you don't even think about going somewhere else. The first time I stepped inside and the warmth with which the hotel staff received me, helped me make up my mind that "THIS" is where I shall spend the next couple of nights. Right in the heart of the city, with the view of the river flowing by and the hills right infront of you, what could a fellow traveller ask for ?
This hotel is so traditionally laden that you get a sense, that the owners have done their best to maintain the ethnicity of the place in the hotel. The food was excellent, the staff very very helpful and I didnt really get a chance to test them because I honestly I never really had any complaints - the stay was that perfect.
Also, a special mention for the owner of this place - Mr. Thakur. He personally takes care of your needs, and his 'attention to detail' like approach towards his hotel is very visible given the way it has been maintained. He saw me seated their at the bar, and joined me for a drink and sharing my experiences with him I had a really good time. You could make out he wanted to know if his customers had any problems and if there is any way he could make my stay better. Absolute gentleman! The family that owns the place seems so well connected and reputed that they could arrange anything for you if the need arises. It was like staying at home.
Rightfully priced, look no further than this hotel to start your blissfull tour of Kullu Manali. You will not regret it.
(ps: Also, there is a mutliplex right inside the premises of the hotel so incase you are a movie buff, this place has something extra for you..never seen something like it)

Room Tip: Choose the suite overlooking the river. Its the best!

Amazing Hotel. Brilliant Service. Educated Staff.
The rooms are cozy. And to top it all , the view. Simply mind-blowing. Proves that Kullu is the Land of Gods
An in-house theater. Not even the five star hotels in Delhi have it.
Also saw one amazing breed of dog. 'Pahaadi' breed I'm guessing.
Reminded me of one of my friends.

The most value for money hotel I have come across in recent times.

Massively overpriced, dirt on the walls, a wet room that stank, and a booming cinema above. We slept in our sleeping bags to avoid the sheets. The balcony was alright though and the owner friendly enough. To be honest it serves us right for taking for the first hotel we came across - the choice in kullu didn't seem overwhelming and we'd just got off the local bus from Shimla. Wouldn't have stayed in the town at all in hindsight. Pass on through to Manali.

This hotel is possibly in the best location in Kullu, right at the city centre and walking distance from the town's famous Dasehra ground. The premises has a Food Court and a Cinema Multiplex, so great food and entertainment aren't far.

The guest rooms offer a fantastic view of the valley and Kullu town, and if you stay here you will find bliss in the heart of the valley.
