Hotel Geetanjali, a budget hotel of HPTDC is located beautifully, at a 5 min walk from Gandhi chowk, the marketplace and a few steps above the bus stop. You get a fantastic view of the whole range of the snow clad peaks especially if you get the corner 4 bedded room.
The rooms of the 100 year old hotel do not belie the fact, but they are generally clean and cozy. The wooden floor creaks with every step and every family staying there is bound to have arguments over who was shaking the bed.
A niche meant for a fireplace lies hidden behind a cupboard, but the high ceiling and ventilators give you the feel of a victorian era.
The most noteworthy aspect of Geetanjali is its staff. The manager is a soft spoken gentleman. The one person who made our stay enjoyable was Mr. Rajesh who single handedly seemed to take care of the entire first floor. Efficient and eager to help he is an asset to the hotel as also is their kitchen staff. Every meal we had was excellent. Thanks Geetanjali.
Poor dining room.
