First I should point out that this hotel has quite a range of rooms. I stayed in one of the nicer ones for a week. The view from my room was spectacular and the quality of the room was fantastic. I might have stayed in the room forever, but it was a bit too expensive for me, especially considering that I was staying in Mussoorie for about a month.. (I was paying Rs. 1,600 per night.) At the time, though, after some rough traveling, I needed some comfort and luxury - which this place was able to provide.
The staff was excellent: friendly and service-minded. The only negative was the noisy (Indian) guests who would gather in groups in the hallways and conduct noisy conversations outside my door as if they owned the place. But that was more a characteristic of Indians and I don't suppose the hotel can really be blamed for that.
Overall I loved my time there and I would gladly stay there again in the future should my budget allow it.

... routes which are created by usage. these are called Pagdandis.
The cemented staircase etc. made the climb easier though it was a bit steep. Distance was very short and we reached the top soon. There was a Shiva-linga on top and some Pandits used to stay there. There was a devi temple opposite the Shiva Temple. We assembled there and sang some Bhajans. The view from the top was beautiful. Some people chose to return while others chose to ...
... And there are too many good books out there for me to waste my time on ones that I don’t enjoy. I finally started a third one, “The Book Thief”, by Markus Zusak. I’m already 20% through it (my Kindle tells me exactly what percentage of the book I’ve already read), and it looks like I’ll be able to finish this one. You can see a review of the book here. At that same website, you can also find good reader reviews of ...
... particularly during Christmas-New Years and summer.
Although only about 35 km from Dehradun, the car ride to Mussoorie took nearly 90 minutes because of the meandering and climbing roadway. We were told that the views on the journey to the town are quite amazing, but the day we choose to travel was rainy and foggy. We only got limited glimpses of the surrounding landscape for the lower half of our drive – the rest of ...

We started the day with breakfast in at the hotel with the free wi-fi, followed by a cup of coffee and a cigar for Gregory at a local coffee shop. As we were sitting at the coffee shop, we watched large, noisy throngs of people passing back and forth through the town – campaigning for their favorite candidates for ...
... I stopped by the hotel that I plan to move into tomorrow. It costs only 800 rupees, which is less than half of what I’m paying at my current fancy place. It’s centrally located, of a good standard, but it doesn’t have much of a view. The main drawback to the place is that the manager insists that I stay for three weeks in order to avail myself of this low rate – and that I pay for one week at a time – in advance. I’m not ...
