Me and my family went there in summer vacations. This hotel was near the bustand so we choosed to stay here. The location of the hotel was really heavenly. If we wont have stayed here we would have missed the beautiful scenery and the warm and cozy rooms with delicious and homely food

A budget hotel that provides value for money and good home like food.

The staff is hospitable and provides good service. We got a room that was close to staircase and there was movement all night for 2 nights as guests were checking in late night/early morning.

Location is a bit steep but overall a good place to stay.

Hotel Monal in Dalhousie is a budget hotel. Well, everything here is very basic, you get a basic room, which is no doubt clean with attached clean bathroom. However my stay here was not what i'd call very pleasant one. Major drawback is the location of this hotel. It is located about 500 mts from the Gandhi Chowk after descending steep steps. Well, the descent is not that hard, but remember that you have to climb back also and that is very tiring. So much so that after climbing up to the road you'd like to have a nice rest before proceeding to that 500 mt walk to the gandhi chowk as no vehicles are allowed on this road. Then there was absolutely no view from the room, there was a large window indeed, but what i could see from that window was the wall of another hotel. However if you get out to the balcony then you can have the not so fascinating view of the Valley. Another reason of dissatisfaction was that the TV in my room was not working properly. There were very limited channels available and the sound on that channels came on and off. I complained about it several times and every time a boy came and slapped the TV, which got the sound back for a few minutes and left. There was also a foreign traveller staying in that hotel who was very unhappy because the owner had promised her that she could use the internet in his office on a chargeable basis whenever she wanted but she came there several times in the 3 days of her stay to use the internet but not even once she could use it as every time he was not there. I think its better to pay a couple of hundred bucks extra and stay in some hotel where you do not have to climb those steep steps.

It was a real shock when we personally saw the hotel & it's super Deluxe rooms booked by our group.
It is an old structure with old damaged furniture & ugly furnishings , stinky bathrooms. The description used on it's website should not be trusted.

We felt cheated & our last days of trip were in a mess......

Last month, we stayed at Hotel Monal, Dalhousie for our honeymoon. Its a nice budget hotel with average cleaniness and services. The location is also good i.e. near gandhi chowk. The food was also fine. The super deluxe rooms have very nice serene view. We stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights. we paid 2400 Rs for the MAP package. We are quite impressed.
thanks.
