We stopped at the hotel for a snack. We'd Usal Pav, Tea and Black Coffee, all of which were OK. The service was quick but lackluster. The toilets are situated outside the main building, decently clean.
Shabby looking interior
on May 6, 2017
My wife and I made our journey to Manali from Shimla on 11 January 2017 at night. We booked this hotel from Shimla, and the owner of the hotel at Shimla referred us to this hotel saying it was his property. We reached Manali at around 3:30 am at dawn, and as instructed from the hotel owner in Shimla, we called over the Manager, Mr. Raj Kumar to pick us up. He was nice enough to tell us that it would take some time to arrange for a pick-up, and asked us to wait for an hour or so. He also told us that if we saw any taxi or car coming towards the city, we could ask the driver for a drop to hotel. We waited for half an hour, and got hold of a taxi. The taxi driver was also nice enough to drop us to the hotel, and the Manager also arranged a room for us. The room was at first floor, adjacent to the stairs. Though our booking was made beforehand, the manager did charge us for the early check-in, which the hotel owner confirmed we didn't need to pay for. The room furniture was shabby looking, the bed sheets had faded colors and the carpet inside the room was stinky. The blankets they provided were also dirty. The fresh room was comparatively clean, and had hot water supply to comfort us in the shivering cold. The five-storied hotel had other rooms, but as we had planned to stay there for a night only, my wife convinced me not to ask the hotel authority for a change of room. The hotel also had a restaurant in the ground floor, but it was unclean and smelly with shabby looking furniture. They took extra charges for room heaters as well.
From the hotel, it is a 15 to 20 minutes walk to Mall road and the bus station. When we visited Manali, it had heavily snowed and the roads were mostly blocked. If anyone is traveling there during snow time, we strongly suggest to stay at hotels nearer/adjacent to Mall road. This hotel is situated at Nagar road, which is far from the central Manali. All in all, judging by the establishment, amenities and location, we would say this is an average hotel, good for solo or group travelers, but families/couples should look for better options.

An average and decent hotel with a great service. We reached there early morning 3 AM still the people there helped us for settling down. Rooms are really nice but average. Hot water available, but if you use once you need to wait for some times to get the water to be heated. Good food and service.
