We were there for Auli during february 2019. Perfect hotel for people looking to stay in Joshimath. Bang in the middle of city still lovely views of lofty mountains and city alike. Market is walking distance, lots of eateries, pharmacies, ATMs and Shops around. Cable car station is just 10 minute walk. Ahh for the pilgrims coming to Badrinath, manager told us the hotel is favorite among pilgrims as the Shankaracharya math (seat of Shankaracharya) is just behind the hotel and evening arti bells can be heard which soothes the atmosphere.
They even arrange a taxi for you if you ask them nicely. Friendly staff.
Side note : Auli is best ski resort in country with national and international games happening year after year. Think of cable car Gondolas going up and down on snowy mountains, Ski lifts, Chair lifts, Snow beaters to prepare slope ideal for sports, Artificial snow making machines, seems like Switzerland, ahh its our India and yes we do have a proper Ski Resort in country. I felt proud of it when i was there.More
