I'll start with a small overview of my journey. I went to Manali on a 6 days trip in the month of June in 2013 along with my two friends. We were on individual bike and started our journey form Delhi via and finally reached to Manali. Being on bikes we enjoyed the best of nature, deep valley, gorgeous Beas river and thrills of curvy roads. This journey was long and we were very tired but still full of adventures. Now the moment we reached in Manali biggest concern was to get a good hotel with fantastic rooms, great food and nice service. However once we were inside the Manali town there were lot of hired people approaching us for their hotels. But we decided to avoid them and kept our priority high that our stay should be in middle of Manali town so that we could enjoy walking around the town in during the peak hours when maximum tourists are out on the streets. When we reached in the middle Manali an another Hotel owner gave us the reference of Shandela Hotel. That's how we found this Hotel. I would like to remind all of you that It was month of June and all good Hotels in Manali at this point of time remains tight packed . . Fortunately one room was available in this hotel. We checked into the hotel and took this double bedroom on the top floor. Hotel is very good from inside having neat and clean environment, once you are in you'll feel that you are at right place. Okay now it was time to get into the room and once we were inside the room, we were like Oh My God after seeing the room. These rooms on top floor were like huts and were beautifully decorated with wooden furnishings. Room has a window opening towards dense Deodar trees' portrait with majestic view. So we were more then happy with our room. Room had all basic amenities in great condition. Please remember that the hotel we stayed in was very good hotel to stay but I would not use word 'Luxurious' for it Now the best part about this hotel was the staff. The service they provided us was excellent these people were very humble and sweet. They delivered everything on time we ordered. Management of the hotel was very helpful and were treating us like a part of family. After a long journey from Delhi to Manali we were looking for delicious food. Fortunately we got it right there. We enjoyed it. After having our drinks and food we had a good sleep. One small thing that I felt as a negative point was it's location. However from main road you'll feel like it's right there but you would have to go through some small roads(streets), don't worry your vehicle can easily reach here. So this concern is manageable seeing the advantages Next morning we woke up early and visiting Rohtang Pass was on our to do list for that day. By the way it was a breathtaking morning view from our room's window. We started out journey at around 6 A. M to Rohtang Pass. That's when the real jinx started. Unfortunately it was TUESDAY, please be aware of it that road to Rohtang and Leh-Ladakh is managed by Indian Army and this is the day when they do maintenance work on the road. So that means tourist visiting to Rohtang can't go ahead after some 10 KM from Manali. Officials would not allow you until either you are a local person or you are going to Leh-Ladakh. So this was a big disappointment for us. If you are in Manali Rohtang pass is a must visit. So please plan accordingly and avoid Tuesday. One full day is needed for Rohtaang pass journey and two days are sufficient for exploring Manali and nearby. In Manali you can visit Solang valley, here you can enjoy paragliding and other games. In the evening you can enjoy the crowded market, the environment is excellent in here during this time. Options of river rafting also available. You can enjoy hot air balloon as well in Manali. We find that everything that was in the market was very expensive so we avoided eating and purchasing outside. During winter it would be snow all around so please go with extreme preparations. In summers also temperature is quite low there so keep woolen cloths in you luggage I would recommend this hotel to each and every one who is looking for a great budget hotel which provides great rooms with excellent service and location close to main market in Manali and of course with scenic beauty all around. Please do not be dependent on hotel for your toothpaste, cream and oil, :-) I know nobody will. My advise is book in advance and ask for the rooms on top floor. You'll spend memorable time of your life in Manali within you budget at this hotel. Manali is a great place to visit, the memories of this place will be sweetest in your life if you visit here. If you want to enjoy nature at it's best, heavenly the Himalayas, beautiful and calm but raging Rivers, dense Deodar forests, wide valleys, majestically shining snow covered peaks and thrilling roads then this part of Michael should be on your must visit list. You can term Manali as a destination of your trip or just a starting of a long journey leading to Ladhak. At the end I would like to share a quote about Manali-Leh-Ladhak road courtesy BRO(Border Road Organization), hope it would inspire you like it does me to go to Manali and ahead: "THIS IS A TOUGH ROAD WHICH LEADS TO THE HEIGHTS OF GREATNESS". I hope my review would be helpful for you. All the best for your journey.
I did not face any problem in finding the hotel's location. I had my own car there. Parking facility was available there. Market area was located at walkable distance. Overall, my experience was good there. The best thing was its service and rooms. Room was neat and clean. AC was not required there. TV and geyser were working properly. Bathroom and furnishings were also neat and clean. They cleaned the room regularly. Mountain view was visible from there. I went there for roaming around with my family with 4 other families in November. Behaviour o the staff was helpful. Manager was a very nice person over there. Service was quick and on time. I was happy with the room allotted. Check-in and check-out was on time. No activity was there. Inside and outside appearance was okay but area was little congested. I took only tea there it was good. I had food outside the hotel. Quality and variety of outside food was good. It was reasonable according to price. Sightseeing trip was included in my package. Finally Manali is a good place. Value for money paid. Location, service, people, and all were good there. I have already recommended this hotel to others. It is good to stay for two or three days.
In June 2015, I went to Manali for an adventurous trip with few friends. We had a stay for four nights and five days which is more than enough for Manali. I also covered Kasol and Manikaran in the same time. Manali is a beautiful place in the lapse of nature. Relaxing and Soothing for those who had tiring exams or people who want to take some time out from their Business/Job and want to have a peaceful outing. Then Yes Manali is that place and Hotel Shandela is the right place for your stay. The View from the rooms is Breathtaking and a delight for photography enthusiasts. Big mountains wrapped in white blanket of snow can been seen from the Rooms The Mall Road which is nearly 50 metres away from the hotel, provides good restaurants, handicraft shops, etc When we reached the hotel, we were welcomed with warm greetings. The receptionist is really helpful. The hotel staff guided us in our trip, they got a cab arranged for us there with minimum charges. The room service is good and fast. The quality of food is satisfactory. The rooms were clean and mattress was really comfortable. The rooms were spacious enough to accommodate 4 travellers with extra bedding, charges for extra bedding were nominal. The washrooms were clean with all the necessary toiletries with 24 hours hot water. We had a spacious wardrobe in our rooms so we kept all our luggage in those wardrobes making sure that nothing stays in the room and makes it uncomfortable for stay. I will recommend this hotel to families and even for girls who are going with their friends for a vacation as safety wise also there are no issues. Have a pleasant stay.
