We enjoyed our 5-day stay in Room No 201 at Bir Resort, a budget hotel in Bir Village, Kangra District, Himachal Pradesh, India, during September 2-7, 2012. We would love to stay here again. We recommend the hotel for the following reasons:

  2. The Bir Resort is within walking distance of Chowgan Chowk, Tibetan Colony and Paragliding Landing Site.

  3. A mirror in the room and bathroom
  4. A shower in bathroom
  5. Although the washbasin had a crack in it, the mixer was fully operational.

Only negative, which was not very annoying

Some seepage patches near the junction of the wall and the floor and the ceiling

Only inconvenience

The resort does not feature a restaurant. We would be happy if the resort also serves meals, especially dinner.
