Great stay with yummy food


The hotel was really good. Staff was cooperative. They arranged a drop to the vaishnodevi temple. I had ordered only beverages they were tasty and the hotel restaurant had many options to choose from for food. Rooms were clean and hygienic and we could see the temple from window of our room.

Poor location and services


We went Vaishno Devi with family for worship of Maa Darshan. Every year I try my best to have darshan at least once in a year. Location wise not good. Service was very poor. Food was the worst. Staying here felt cheated. Place Vaishnodevi needs no intro where goddess resides. No other facility provided by hotel which one can give good remark. Hotel outlook was impressive.

Excellent location with well-decorated rooms


The Hotel JMK International was located at a nice place. The purpose of stay at the hotel was to visit Vaishno Devi shrine. The front of the hotel was no nice that we fell love at first sight. The beautiful and pride of Indian Railways Katra Railway Station was situated within 1 km of the hotel. The room in which we stayed was very nice and redecorated with a big glass window made our vision clear to see the jig jag trail of Vaishno Devi temple. The mountain was green and wandering of white clouds on the green was so attractive that sometimes we felt that the cloud may touch our hand to it, there was no glass barrier in the window. In brief the location was very excellent and romantic Journey to Vaishnodevi shrine on foot was very interesting. We were walking with large no. Of devotees assembled there from different parts of our beloved country. We were walking with mini India. We got inspiration by chanting Jai Mata Di. We felt blessings of mother and with the inspiration of almighty mother at last we reached the shrine the distance of which was 14 km. It took about 6 to 7 hours. Clean toilets and hygienic drinking water provided by the shrine board for the devotees. The entire trail was covered with a view to prevent the devotees from sun or rain. Besides walking the devotees can go by Helicopter, horse riding and Palki. Surroundings of the temple was clean and a good atmosphere created with chanting of Vaidik mantras. We prayed and gave our offerings and came down on foot with full of joy

Great hotel made our tour more happier


I and my family had planned for Darshan of Maa Bhagwati last Month. I was responsible for all the, so I booked this hotel online for 2 days. I was worried because I was responsible for the planning. So finally the day came when I reached Jammu, I called in hotel about my arrival and the cab was there in few minutes to pick us. I was amazed with the services and when we reached hotel's lobby I was more than happier because my mother appreciated me for the choice of hotel. Afterall the hotel was decorated pretty well. Rooms were great, however food was up to average quality, but what else can you get in a hill station so I'm bit satisfied with food too. It was a pleasant stay there and the staff was helpful too. Room service was good. Overall it was a hotel with all amenities which a traveller needs.

Poor hotel not satisfied


I have been to Vaishno Devi many times but never had such a bad experience ever, I was with my husband and we have booked this hotel due to non availability of rooms in nearby hotels. We thought as per the name the service of the hotel shall be good. But we were wrong. The hotel is good from outside only, but inside neither the staff is good nor the amenities are good. They are not able to provide even the water and electricity supply continuously. What more can you expect from this hotel. The staff is also not providing satisfactory service to us, truly worst experience, spoiled our trip.

Good hotel with comfortable room


Really good hotel. I was scared about the hygiene and cleanliness in the hotel but it was really good. It is located at about 1 to 2 km distance from the temple and there was a Jain temple nearby. Hotel appearance was good and given room was deluxe room, it was spacious, neat and comfortable with basic amenities like AC, TV, fridge and geyser facility and there was temple view from the room. Staff were polite, professional, cooperative and good room service. They provided Andhra food varieties, the quality and taste of the food was very good, served by staff. No issues at the time of check in and check out. I went here with family for temple visit
