“A cozy stay, away from the maddening crowd”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2009

We were a group of about 50 students on a college trip. Our agent suggested us to stay at Chail to avoid the crowds at Shimla and enjoy the mountains in peace.

Monaal is actually on the hill slope. You need to climb down the stairs to enter it. The rooms are spacious with capacity to add more beds if required. This is helpful if you want to manage costs in a big group or are travelling with family. Whether its the "Honeymoon Suite" or the "Regal Room", each room has a different decor. Cottage type rooms are also available.

The staff is very courteous and helpful. Food needs to be ordered a day before since getting the vegetables on the hills is a challenge.

Overall a neat cozy hotel in the heart of the quaint Chail.

Three words to describe my stay at Hotel Monaal ....AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL.
I planned the trip on spur...got online...the hotel's website looked good...got in touch with the Delhi contact no., made the payments and was on my way to Chail the next day.
My heart sank when I saw the property and the rooms. Some key features of this place:
The rooms have torn carpets and old dusty upholstry.
Toilets don't have water...remind the reception at least 2-3 times if you need hot water...even in mornings
Room phones....either they don't work or have heavy distortion...when you dial the reception all you can say is send some one to the room to order
Flooded with monkeys all around.
Right next to the hotel staircase is a major garbage dump
The staff has no clue about what's happening...all local boys who watch weird programs on the TV all day.
While I was staying a dozen college going boys occupied 3-4 rooms in the lobby...they were drinking and making noise till 2-3 AM with no one to check them.
And yes....DO NOT GO NEAR THE KITCHEN....the room stinks worse than an MCD garbage dump. I just had one breakfast in the hotel and had all rest of the meals outside (although I paid for b/fast and dinner for 3 days)

ALL IN ALL...THE OWNER'S SHOULD SHUT THIS PLACE DOWN IF THEY HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT WHAT A HOTEL SHOULD BE...THEY SHOULD STOP FLEECING PEOPLE BY PUTTING UP A FANCY WEBPAGE

Chail is a small town with nothing much to do but this hotel is excellent though it is a small hotel with 10-15 rooms but hospitality and personal attention extended by staff and owner you can not even think of getting it in a 7 star resort. The staff and management get so much involved with you that they just make you part of a family. I would recommend you to visit this hotel atleast once - it will become an addiction later.
Food is Excellent.
