Mussoorie has always been on our priority list. When anyone of us thinks about vacation in the mountains, the first place that pops up is Mussoorie. Mussoorie is located in the state of Uttrakhand and is 300 kms from New delhi, approx 7 hour drive. One can also take a train/flight to Dehradun and then cab down to Mussoorie.
This road trip to Mussoorie was a short one and we wanted to book a hotel close to the mall road, but it was the season and all the hotels were sold out. Surprisingly Hotel Midtown was available. Midtown is situated just on the opposite lane of Picture Palace Road and is 5 minuted walking to the Mall road. All our requirements were fulfilled by this hotel such as Private Parking(Need to be confirmed while check inn), big balcony overlooking Dehradun valley, walking distance to Mall road and in our budget.
We booked two super deluxe rooms and were upgraded to premium room with balcony on a very nominal cost per night. The rooms are neat and clean, the only drawback are their beds which are small for people who are 5.8ft and above. The balcony is huge and a group of three can easily sit and enjoy the nice view of the Valley. You can also book their terrace rooms which are simply amazing as you can sit all night on the terrace, star gaze and enjoy the weather.
Their food and hospitality is just average, no service is available after 10pm and the staff courtesy is a big question, specially their manager. But then we didnt want to create any issue and spoil our vacation, so we ordered food from outside. There is a small shop just beneath the hotel for your daily needs and is open till 11pm, its was our saviour.
Overall we will suggest this hotel if you are looking for a budget stay with clean rooms and near to the mall road.
