Just 2 KM from Bir & Billing in Kangra Valley, this is a boutique hotel with a magical twist: an old merchant's house once totally destroyed by fire, it has been painstakingly and aesthetically restored blending traditional style and materials with contemporary sensitivity, offering you an unique living experience in the middle of a Himalaya village without compromising on comfort. The 4Rooms is intentionally set away from the larger tourist centres in the vicinity so that you can experience, in a responsible manner, our 'un-touristy' village and the pristine surroundings and mingle with the villagers not yet accustomed to tourist manners. Access to other places in the valley is easy (walking, cycling, cabs etc) yet you are not in the middle of it!

The 4Rooms is intentionally set away from the larger tourist centres in the vicinity so that you can experience, in a responsible manner, our 'un-touristy' village and the pristine surroundings and mingle with the villagers not yet accustomed to tourist manners. Access to other places in the valley is easy (walking, cycling, cabs etc) yet you are not in the middle of it! In the 4Rooms, you are part of the 4tables Project and our family. The 4tables Project is famous primarily for its contemporary art projects, but also for the delicious, home-cooked contemporary fusion-western cuisine (at the 4tables Cafe & Gallery -- this is where all your meals will be served!), an art museum and since recently, our own camping site, Camp In The Fields. The 4Rooms offers well-appointed fully ecological boutique rooms with comfortable bathrooms, terraces, a common garden with gazebo, wifi, tea-and-coffee making facility etc. (BUT NO TV or ROOM SERVICE!) to make you feel completely at home. You can book one of our 4 rooms separately, or the whole house. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: DTO-HTL(KGR)-528/2017-936More

About the neighbourhood
Gunehar is predominantly a village of Gaddis and Bara Bhangalis, whose original homes are further in the interiors of the mountains, beyond the Dhauladhar Range. Since most of these people are semi-nomadic shepherds, and since the extremely cold winters cut off their villages from the Indian mainland for more than half a year, they have traditionally had winter dwellings on the southern slopes of the Himalaya such as Gunehar. The village is, despite many traces of modernisation, still very laid back and original, with warm inhabitants. It is close to a beautiful stream, water falls, and great walking treks that are mostly free of tourists. The more prominent Bir (2KM) and Bir Colony (4KM) are just a stone throw KM away.
Getting around
Walking, cycling, local cabs.
