Green Hotel as a place to eat
According to the Green Hotel website, it is a family-run business operating since 1978. Strategically located, Green Hotel is not smack in the middle of the McLeod Ganj township, neither too far from it – it is a 10-minute jaunt from the city center. Whether you want to go uphill to trek or visit the Bhagsunath temple, this is where your ascent begins and there is nothing better than beginning your ascent with the delicious breakfast on offer in the warmly decorated hotel restaurant. Often tourists make a beeline in the morning for a hearty breakfast before they get on with their day.

Like most eateries in McLeod Ganj, the Green Hotel restaurant at the basement has a well-stocked multilingual library.
Green Hotel as a place to stay
We were told that Green Hotel has a diverse selection of rooms catering to all types of travelers. Rooms have their own private shower with hot water available 24/7. The rates are highly flexible but we found they would generally vary between Rs.300/- to Rs.800/- depending on the seasons or whether weekday/weekend. It is better to book in advance during festival times to avoid the last minute rush and eventual disappointment. The rooms at the top floors are easily the best and present a magnificent view of the Himalayan peaks.
