“The place to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2012

Hotel Pong View in Dharamshala is located en route McLeodganj facing the beautiful valley that reveals the hills in all their beauty till Kangra. Just like the location is magnificent and takes care of the tourists, the hotel is fully equipped to make a stay pleasurable and memorable. The staff is extremely friendly and the rooms are well furnished and comforting after a long day of trekking in the mountains. the place has all the info a tourist can require to plan further expeditions and the people at Pong View are more than helpful in making the time spent with them exhilarating. Cheers to Pong View!

There are few places that you can stay in where you are made to feel at home and given all the comfort. HOTEL PONG VIEW in Dharamshala is one such place which has a staff devoted to creating a pleasurable and welcome environment for a guest..... as much as visiting the area is a delightful experience, staying in Pong View makes it even better! Must visit for anyone going to Dharamshala McLeodganj!

Room Tip: Must chose their cottage or their deluxe rooms for a great view of the valley!

I have stayed at this hotel 2 times now. Once last Year in 2011 and second time in 2012. Though I agree with my fellow reviewers that this hotel was under renovation last year and not fully functional, it is Now. Hotel has been Fully renovated and rooms have been newly painted.
Coming to the Rooms, They are basic with amenities like Clean bathroom, Lcd Tv with cable, Tea/Coffee maker. Bathroom is simple but Clean(One very Important aspect for me) with Hot water Option. Attached balcony leads to beautiful view of the pong Valley.
Food is good and prepared well. One can get Indian, Chinese and some Continental food on their Menu.
Though the Hotel is situated a little on the outskirts of City but City Market is very nearby. One can Stroll down the hill and reach the market in 10-15 mins.
Also, it is situated on the way to McleodGanj from Dharamshala, So one can visit McleodGanj too.

As there are very few accommodation option available in Dharamsala, our cab driver took us to this hotel. From the Kotwali road, this hotels looks like really good but as we came to the entrance found the hotel is under construction. The rooms were ok type, bathroom was not much clear. What you can expect at the rate of Rs. 1200, as we have to spent only 2 nights there so we decided to stay there. The view from our room balcony was amazing. The Pong Dam. The food was really terrible.

Overall, OK experience.
