I stayed here for one night in Mid April 2012, the hotel is around half a mile down on Jogiwara Road, from Main square. The hotel lobby was clean and so was the room on the ground floor where we stayed. The view of the snow mountains was great from the room and the roof top and that's the USP of this hotel. Cafe Arabica has been out of existence for long it seems.
The hotel had so many positive reviews and pics so I was hoping it to be buzzing with people and energy, but it looked very stranded. We saw the room one day in advance and paid 200 rs advance and decided to check in the next day.
The manager (who pretended to be the owner) was a dark kashmiri Indian with curly hair and really funny accent. He could barely speak english but tried to mimic all the countries' accents :)
I tried hard to keep myself from giggling while in front of him. But he was a nice chap, helpful in giving directions and advice.
Rooms were clean with clean toilets and running hot water. Linen was changed regularly so that's nice.
The only problem was with the guys smoking Pot as mentioned in one of the earlier reviews. Although its pretty much every where in McL, but seeing the pics of the hotel and its own website, almost convinced me I will find a lot of dopers here. But the one's I could find smoking a joint were the Manager and his helper, puffing the magic dragon, right below the NO SMOKING sign :)
No tea coffee that i could see. Water filter wasn't working either. Manager suggested to get it filled from any busy restaurant.
