“Amazing view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2012

me and a couple of friends of mine stayed at Hotel Monal for 3 days, we booked online and got a amazing deal. We booked the Super deluxe room, which was tastefully furnished but the biggest incentive was the amazing view of the snow clad mountain. We overall had a nice time.

Room Tip: book super deluxe rooms

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2011

We stayed there for three nights and booked the accommodation and some sightseeing together paying 50% advance. We reached Dalhousie by Bus, then took a porter to reach hotel via Subhash Chowk. This stretch was very long and we became tiresome but later we found that the hotel is very near (3-4min walking distance) from the Gandhi Chowk. The markets are very near. Still the hotel is at very good quiet location having very good view of valley. Most of the rooms have private balconies where you can take your tea and breakfast in Sunlight.
The entrance of the hotel is about 25-30Ft down from the road and the approach road is very steep, so it's not recommended for aged or heart patients, otherwise it's a good value for money.
Management and stuffs are good but they need to be a little more professional. Most of the time, nobody was present in the reception, though they used to take the phone calls while calling from room. They didn't make any entry in the registrar for our stay.
There is no restaurant, food is served in room. Some extension work is in progress probably they'll make some restaurant in near future. Food served is mainly veg with only egg items as non-veg. But they can bring other non-veg items from outside hotel on request.
There is some other hotels at the Thandi sarak side from where you can view the snow-capped peerpanjal ranjes, so those hotels are definitely better but this hotel is no doubt good for comfortable stay at Dalhousie.

Room Tip: Approach the hotel from Gandhi Chowk side. One room in each floor have views of two sides of the va...

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.
