Excellent stay at Hotel Greenfields
on Jan 4, 2019
I had visited Hotel Greenfields this December for New year's and I must say that it was an amazing stay at the hotel. The hotel is run by two friends who are extremely courteous, helpful and comforting. We had taken a deluxe room which had a beautiful view of the snow capped mountains. Also, the food at the hotel is scrumptious. We had taken a package deal for breakfast and dinner and there was a gammut of options to choose from. The specifically served the breakfast and dinner in our rooms as it was cold outside. Service at hotel by each and every staff was commendable.
On a different note, I'd like to narrate an incident that happened during our stay. We had to checkout on 2nd Jan morning , Mr. Sharma who is one of the friends who runs the place gladly extended out checkout time as it was snowing. Not only this, he went beyond his call of duty to help us when we stranded in Old Manali without any auto or cab to get us back. He not only picked up our luggage from the hotel but also drove us to bus depot getting stuck in traffic for nearly 3 hrs. You had us there with that gesture and kudos to the kind gentleman! :)
In terms of vicinity , this hotel is near to old Manali, hadimba temple and a little far from the hustle bustle of the Mall road. Well, I guess that works. Who needs a noisy lane next to your room especially during your vacation. Right?
P.S: Auto to the Mall road charges only 100 bucks.
Great view !

Location of the hotel was great. We were able to see the mountains from hotel window and bias was 3 minutes walk from there. There were a few dhabas near the hotel so we didn't need to go to mall road for food every time.

Proximity to mall road, view, superb staff service and good quality of food are the flagship of this hotel. If you are looking for a place to stay with a budget, this is a great place to opt for. Everyplace has its share of plus and minuses, the good side made me overlook the negatives.
nice budget hotel

It is a good hotel in decent budget and has decent amenities. overall fine with food yum food but it is little bit far from mall road and you have to walk out so little difficult for old people but overall it is ok.
Small and Budgeted Hotel at a very good scenic location

I had been to Manali couple of times and had advised number of tourist from multiple forums including Tripadvisor.com.
This time i was traveling with my family so wanted to be double sure about the place I am going to stay and had limitation on budget. After lot of search and reading feedback, i choose few of the hotels and finally after making multiple inquires zero
down my search to this hotel " Hotel Greenfields".
Booking ,Confirmation and Check-in Process :
We were 5 adult and 1 kid and had booked Family room. Bookings were made online and we had confirmed the same by calling to hotel.
We were allowed early check-in ( around 8:30 Am) as the room was available.
Toilets / Bathroom :
Please note that the room have 2 toilet and one of which was dry toilet i.e without bathing facilities thus only 1 was available for bathing.
Toilets were clean and Toiletries including towel were made available.
Our room had nice view of snow capped mountain however there is no balcony in any of their room but windows were big enough.The family room we booked had 2 adjoining rooms separated by door. The rooms were clean. Nice storage was available in the cupboard however did not find any hangers to hang cloth . The rooms were also having fans to beat the heat due to global warming etc.( Yes we did use the same )
There was no instant tea maker in the room. But overall it was ok.
The hotel location has its own advantage and disadvantages.
Disadvantage : The hotel is not located near to the Mall road where most of us wish to spend time during evening . Further last 300- 400 meters are really hard to walk due to being steep and one really had to drag himself.
One can walk to mall road however found that in season the way could be really polluted and full of dust.
The hotel is not having any lawn so no open area for kids.
1. The hotel is located really near to Old Manali so youngsters may found it good as they can spend some good time being near to old Manali.
2. Being far away from Mall road the hotel is at a location where you will not find any pollution and dust.
3. The hotel restaurant offers very good view of the snow capped cliffs and trees.The view can just be imagined from the very fact that hotel is located to the prime property of HPTDC log huts.
4. The hotel is near to Hidamba temple.
Overall if you are having your own vehicle then you will really not have any issue otherwise also the autos take about INR 100 -150 to drop to mall road / pick for mall road.
Read a lot of review regarding food cost. To large extent I found it reasonable and had dinner and breakfast also and found the taste of the food "Nice".
People : The hotel is being looked after by Mr. Chaman and Mr. Sharma ji. Both the gentlemen are really nice and hardworking.
One fine night in late night I found Chamanji at reception and came to know that he is waiting and making call to one of the couple left for Rohtang who had not returned. It was already 12 ( midnight ) and i came to know that entire kitchen staff was also waiting for couple as the food was included in the package. So one can well imagine the sense of responsibility the staff have.
I would surely like to stay at such nice place. Best of luck.
