Woke up at 8, after a great sleep of 12 hours! As usual, my first act was to go out in search of breakfast. Since I was yet again not able to find anything, I returned to my room and finished off the last of my whole wheat bread – topped with peanut butter and blueberry preserves.
My next …
... through the crowded mall road and located the hotel we booked.
It was Kasmanda Palace. To everyone's delight, it was located at significant height and was as serene and tranquil as Kanatal. The palace was impressive and we could choose good rooms for ourselves.
We had already made out during the lunch that we were going to enjoy the food. Hotel is family owned and managed and lacks professionalism. ...
... it across on her own, so I went to the middle of the road, took her by the arm, and delivered her to the side of the road – where she was promptly run over by a big truck. Just kidding about the truck part. As far as I know, she’s home safe now.
On the ride back up the mountain to Mussoorie, the bus was packed full, making for an unpleasant ride. I had elbows and rears all up in my face. During the ride, a girl sitting near me had finished ...

Although I thought I had settled on a hotel to move into today, I found yet another, better one on my walk around town yesterday evening. The hotel is very centrally located, has big picture windows with a nice view of a valley, AND it’s dirt cheap – at only 500 rupees a night – or just under ten bucks.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
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.
