“Poor place”
Reviewed 17 September 2011

The only reason why I have given a 2-star 'Poor' rating and not a 1-star 'Terrible' rating is because the food was decent. Otherwise, the hotel was not worth the money spent in staying there.

I stayed in the Super Deluxe room, and yet felt very cramped for space. I shudder to think then that what would it be like in the normal Deluxe rooms. The bathroom too was very tiny. For a little more than the price that they charged, I am sure I would gave gotten much better facilities and service at other places in Badrinath.

It is located about 15-minute walk (10 minutes if you walk briskly) away from the Badrinath temple. However, the path is off the main road to the temple, and can be stinky sometimes. So it is better to go on the main road to go to the temple rather than taking the staright 15-minute path from the hotel.

The room that I stayed in had a television but just 6 channels - 4 of which were local! The lift was under maintenance too. The telephone intercom system was also out of order. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone going for the Badrinath Dham. There are better options available.

I recently visited Badrinath with my family in July 2011. Given off season from a religious point of view, most hotels had rooms available and we hence visited without prior bookings. The hotel is one of the better properties in the place and as far as we could see, only Sarovar was better than this (but a whole lot more expensive). The rooms were clean, with TV and hot water geysers. They also had power backup which was useful in the night. they do not have heaters however, but the weather was only slightly chilly, so it worked fine for us. There were lots of cheaper rooms but those looked very dinghy

The main Badrinath temple is only walking distance away, but that's true for the whole town!

Reviewed 6 July 2011

The hotel rooms were below average and stinky, the rooms were filled with remains of flies. The staff is totally disconnected and rude, i was given a room with no electricity and stinky and torn carpets. Later the manager got the room changed to a so called renovated room, but the chanes were minimum. Hot water is available for limited time only, there are only 5-6 channels on tv. The rooms are dirty, and oriented perpendicular to the ranges so i dont agree with reviews which rave about the view. The restaurant is ok and so is the food but i have my concerns about the cleanliness. The lift works only when the management wants it to work. I will certainly not stay at any of their properties in future.

Room Tip: ask the manager for a better room

Good accommodation with running hot/ cold eater (Hot water only in the morning). Very friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant is standard food, little on the hot (spicy) side. No internet

The most striking feature of the hotel is the amazing view of the Neelkanth peak. It towers over your window and looks beautiful at sunrise. Hotel rooms were comfortable, cosy & warm. Food was good & provided a variety of Indian & continental dishes.
