The room we had were very spacious and we were lucky to be able to view the lovely Dharamsala from our balcony. The food selection was great and you can order to eat in the room, if you want to. The staff was very helpful and friendly and I really enjoyed my stay here.

Hotel rooms were neat and clean. Food was good. But very limited and only continental breakfast menu option available. Service and hospitality was good. Good place to stay. A way to this hotel was very narrow, difficult for a vehicle to reach.

The hotel is situated at a walking distance from main square, and offers tranquility. The view from the balcony was mesmerizing. The room was spacious with a separate sitting area and uniquely furnished. The staff was courteous. Only thing to avoid here is food. Both the breakfast and dinner was unappetizing.

The best part about zambala is its location. It's away from the maddening sound of traffic of main square, but just at a walkable distance away from the it. It's also near to the Dalai Lama temple. Food is average. Service is decent. Rooms are pretty comfortable. Go for deluxe room. It's cheaper and has almost all the amenities as... More
