Hotel Durga Residency, Katra
Opposite KDA, Railway Rd, Katra, Jammu and Kashmir 182301
I went to Katra with a group of friends in order to visit 'Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine'. We took a train from Anand Vihar Railway Station, Delhi and it dropped us right at the Katra Railway Station. It is the Cleanest Railway Station I have ever seen in India. After a long journey of around 16 hours, it was really very important for each one of us to stay in a Clean, calm and comfortable room to relax for a while and then gear up for another 14 km trek towards MataVaishno Devi Temple. And there we found Hotel Durga Residency right at the door step of Katra Railway Station(5 min walk hardly). The rooms were really clean and hot water was ready for us to take a refreshing shower. Room service was as quick as one can expect with the courteous staff. I really enjoyed even the little time that I spent in the hotel because its location is absolutely amazing. One can see the mountains right above the head. The view becomes mesmerizing in case it starts raining :) Another great thing was the local market is also at a distance of 10 min where in you can buy the dry fruits and other souvenir. Also the IRCTC souvenir shop located inside the Railway Station is really good to buy the genuine stuff at reasonable prices. A quick tip from my side would be do carry a torch, raincoat and power bank(to charge your cell phones) during the journey to add a little more spice to your holiday.
Me and my family stayed in Durga Residency for 2 days. Rooms were good, nicely cleaned. Nice hotel staff. The best advantage was that it is the very 1st hotel from the railway station. Would recommend everyone to stay here for nicely rooms at decent prices.
I stayed here with my family on 24th Dec 2015. This hotel is very close to the Vaishnodevi railway, only 2 or 3 mins walk distance and little far from Katra bus stand, 1. 5 km approx. They provide transport service. I see only one van for transport service. Hotel staff is friendly and welcoming. I booked Deluxe room. Hotel has clean rooms. My family liked the room in affordable price. I cannot get wifi signal anywhere. Overall, we enjoyed this hotel service and I will recommend for those who are planning a trip to Katra.
I have stay in this hotel with my family for Two night. All Staff is cooperative. Walking distance from Katra railway station. Room, washroom is neat and clear. Food was very good. Love to stay again. Easy to find the location. Will refer my friends also to stay in this hotel.
