Caring people, mesmerizing view with a great team of hosts
My parents wanted to spend a quality leisure time and they exactly got what they expected and wished since long. Thanks Swati being an awesome travel co-ordinator, a great cook with variety of simple food, helpful stuffs, who made the visit extra ordinary. Last but not the least, view point of this hotel, specifically from balcony can not be expressed by words. when you see the range of mountain with white golden snow edges, you can think of not to blink your eyes for once even.

A Perfect Stay With Perfect View
Hotel is at a good location away from the village on the main road with enough parking space and safe parking. Rooms are spacious and every room has a large glass window from which you can see a perfect view of the Panchachuli peaks. Staffs are well mannered and helpful. Food is tasty and you will get both veg and nonveg options.

Nice budget hotel with a great view to Panchchuli peaks
We traveled to Munsiyari and stayed in this hotel in the second half of November’18. Bookings were done in advance and hence there was no problem with the stay. We had driven non-stop from Delhi and had reached Munsiyari by 10.00 PM at night. We were delayed due to traffic jams at Pikhuwa (UP) and Garh-Mukteshwar.
About Munsiyari: While there are a few more hotels in Munsiyari, Milam Inn would be the one you would choose to stay. There’s nothing much in terms of town and market but there are quite a few glaciers and treks that backpackers would love. Munsiyari is an extremely remote location and one is advised to come prepared in terms of warm clothes and medicines. The nearest major town is Bageshwar and that is a long way off. Families driving their own car should think twice as the mountain road is a single lane road and the driver has to be really disciplined and patient while driving. The mountain area has seen some major landslides last monsoon and the roads are damaged in sections. Families with small children and medically unfit senior citizens should reconsider this treacherous road trip.
About the hotel: This is an average budget hotel but with comfortable rooms and clean bathrooms. The kitchen dishes out all the popular vegetarian and non-veg dishes and the food is tasty. However, if the hotel is full, expect a delay in service. The best part about the hotel is its location and orientation. The hotel is built on a stepped flat land and directly faces the Panchchuli peaks and mountain range. The ground floor of the hotel is actually below road level and hence the first floor is the “ground floor”. There is a second floor too. All rooms are mountain facing with extremely large windows to allow the majestic view and ample sunlight in.
The difference between the floors is as follows. The lowest floor has a few view obstructions when looking down the valley. The middle floor is better as it allows an unobstructed view of the mountain as well as the valley. The top room is the best as it provides the best view. We stayed in the middle floor rooms as we were carrying professional photography gear and the mission was to shoot the peaks at different hours of the day and night. Our decision to select the middle floor proved to be correct as we could set up the tripods in the balcony and could experiment with long exposure shots, especially during sunrise, sunset and at full moon nights.
The staff is courteous and friendly. Mr. Basant was a single man army doing all the chores and attending to our needs, during our stay in Milam. A very friendly and courteous man indeed.
Overall a good stay at Milam Inn.
It is no exaggeration to say that Hotel Milam inn will add new charm and flavour to one’s tour to Munsiyari. Though mother nature of Munsiyari was not kind to me during my tour to Munsiyari as I could not able to see the enchanting sunset due to cloudy weather but I was no way disappointed by the courtesy shown and service provided by the hotel.
Location of the hotel is superb. If Panchachuli is a must in Munsiyari then Hotel Milam inn may be another source of attraction for any peace loving person.
One word that is simply ecstatic, excellent hotel. Food quality is very good. Service is also very good, prompt. Panoramic view of Panchachulli from the hotel just amazing. From sunrise to sunset all are magnificent view from the hotel.
Munsyari is untouched hill station and hotel Milan inn is in prime location from your room you have a view of snow pick mountain s (punchchuli) it’s a quiet a decent hotel compare to place very neet and clean and services his also very good has a small restaurant but food is delicious.
Overall we had a good experience.
Excellent stay @ Milam Inn
Visited Munshiyari in the month of December, 2017.. stayed at Milam Inn, very good location. Rooms are well maintained, clean & hygienic.. staffs are very supportive, they also provided with a room heater at no extra cost. But, in all probabilities, the best part of this hotel is the view from the rooms…. the Panchachulli peaks seem to be at walking distance from there….. unparalleled, truly !!!!
Hotel milan inn is located at the entrance of very picturesque hill town Munsyari, uttarakhand. All the trekking points are near to this hotel. It’s the best you can get in this otherwise sleepy town, heaven for trekkers.
Rooms are big, airy and provide just mind-blowing panaromic view of snow-clad mighty Panchachuli range of mountains. Big balcony with comfort chairs.
Big and well maintained bathroom. Room service is prompt. Food was very good and you have quite big menu to choose from.
Big parking lot. Only thing lacking was tea/coffee maker.
A birds eye view of Panchchuli peaks
Milam Inn,a value for money hotel, is ideally situated amidst the lap of Nature in Munsiyari. Panchchuli peaks (a group of five Himalayan peaks) are clearly visible from any balcony, even almost from any room of the Hotel.The hotel staff are courteous and friendly and food is good.However internet connectivity is interrupted.If you don’t mind the small hiccup,it is a highly recommended place to stay and rejuvenate oneself.
Views = unparallel. Give you the real feel of staying at Munsiyari
Yum Food. Especially local kumaoni food suggested by the Staff. Must try.
Professional attitude of the Staff
2-3 Kms from the main town, but the town in itself has nothing much to offer
Overall – Enjoy your peaceful stay!

Breathtaking view of panchachulli, Warm cozy stay at Hotel Great location
The Service is excellent the food is Good. Staff were good and helpful. This place is centrally located. Luxury room was awesome comfortable stay. Ample parking Space…Nice Staff..good hospitality…very helpful…Highly recommended.
Excellent Location and Service
This property in on outskirts of Munsiyari town so internet doesn’t work as well the Wifi (in Hotel ) most of the time.
1) The view of famous ‘Panch-Chulka’ peaks is the best from rom Balcony as its in the peak of town and especially the top floor being comparatively new built.
2) Parking is ample.
3) Room service staff are very courteous and helping nature specially Basanth bhai.
4) Food(Breakfast,Lunch & Dinner menu) is good. Heads up to team in availing quality food in that location . Preferable to go for local or indian cuisine than chinese or other ones.
Cons (that need improvement ):
1) house fly menace and bugs .
2) Reception Customer service is bad as staff is rude,not cooperative and lagging in providing the correct details (in arranging the Guide and near by sight seeing).
3) During rush days, there is no accommodation for Drivers.
Excellent View, still outside the town buzz!
We opted for Milam Inn , rather as we couldn’t get KMVN (Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam) accommodation, however do not regret the decision at all.This property in on outskirts of Munsiyari town, which is quite a congestion these days. The view of famous ‘Panch-Chulka’ peaks is the best no doubts. The property, especially the top floor seem comparatively new. Except for the fact that the team needs to take care of house fly menace, which I am sure they are doing on war footing, the place will have absolutely no complains… We also were treated with the best local cuisine by the restaurant team. This needs special mention. Parking is ample, staff is very courteous , tariff to us, looked rather on higher side….

Little Expensive but worth it
This is a fairly new hotel Very centrally located ample car parking and a good in-house restaurant. The Rooms are spacious and almost everything is new. Try to take rooms on 1st floor. Try to hold parking for your booking.
Best in Munsiyari
Perfect stay right in the lap of nature. A wel lmaintained dotel with a mesmerizing view. Now upgrading third floor to serve more travellers. Before a km to munsiyari town, one can very easily locate it right in the main road. Location is the best thing followed by the view and service. Rooms are very spacious, clean and tidy. Every room has a view of panchachuli ranges. Reception is very fast and friendly. They allotted us lower floor room which was just perfect with a small garden in front to rooms. Range view are directly available from bed. Single coil heaters are available on request in 300 inr per day. Food is just awesome and tasty. Freshly cooked and nice. They also serve authentic kumaoni cuisines.
They provide guide for khuliya top and massar kund on demand. Sunrise view in a definitely not to miss at this hotel.
Overall the best hotel in munsiyari and recommendable to every kind of travellers.

Superb place for viewing the Panchachuli
Perhaps Hotel Mila Inn is the best located hotel in Munshiyari. All the rooms are Himalaya facing. Big glass window pane helps you to enjoy the snow clad mountains of ‘ Panchachully’, range of peaks, without having the chilly bite of cold. And believe me , even from your bed. I am not going for small nitty gritties of the hotel, location is the main USP of the hotel. This was what the owner of the hotel stated flatly. Entire front, rather back side of the hotel faces the biggest range of Himalaya visible. Next comes the slope with absolute no hindrance. At present it is double storied, and construction is going on for next, higher up.
NB: This is an ideal place for a panaromic view of Himalayan peaks and Sunrise, but your chance depends entirely on weather. Out of our two days stay, we were lucky to have a half a days chance.

The property is very well maintained. Had the pleasure of staying at Milam Inn Munsiyari, which in my view, is one of the best places in that location with some fantastic views, great food, and excellent service. The highlight of this place is the fantastic punchachuli peak view from the rooms.
The first impression was not the last…
When I was standing in front of the Milam Inn for the first time, I was not very much impressed by its appearance. But after checking in the place became my love for the next 2 days.We requested them early (during our pre booking) to provide us Room no. 109 on first floor and they kept our request and we enjoyed our stay in probably the best room of that hotel.
It was a big wooden room with open views of North and East. The room and the bathroom are clean, well furnished and well maintained.The room has a private balcony from where you can enjoy the mesmerizing clear view of Himalayan ranges.If you are lucky to have a clear weather then you will definitely going to have a lifetime experience. The snow capped ranges are so close. The peaks turn golden during the sunset as they are covered with melted gold !!!
The staffs are very good . They are always ready to help you. The exception was the man who was in the reception, we never saw his smiling face during our 2 nights stay.
The main attraction of the hotel for me was their restaurant. To describe the quality and quantity, I’ll use only one word which is “EXCELLENT”. We tried both Indian and Chinese dishes during our stay and both were equally good. As we have a child with us, they prepare customized dish for her without compromising with the taste !!! Thanks a ton to the Kitchen team.
The main tourist-attractions are within 10 km periphery to this place.

Panchachauli view 24×7..Exhilarating!!
Rooms are simple, cozy and economical with a breathtaking view from the bedroom itself. Food is superb as the quality of farm produce is better. It takes complete two days to reach Munsiyari from Delhi and a very good option can be to halt at Gaangolihat on the first night and visit patal bhubneshwar cave next morning before leaving to Munsiyari.
Amazing Experience ever we had there. awesome view frm this hotel. Found this hotel frm online. staffs were good nd helpful. but internet connection ws very weak there. you can see panchachuli peaks frm ur room window. if u r nature loving person then this the perfect place fr u. highlyrecommended. 👍

Very comfortablle stays and Good view in Dec 2017
Hi Stayed in this Hotel in Dec 2018. Very easy to spot as it is at the entry point of Munsiyari. Its at a height and provides good view of Panchachulli peaks. Rooms had wide glass window for great view. Hotel owner was a gracious host and accommodated our request in first call. Blankets used were imported from UK, were soft of great quality. Food was good. People helpful. Can;t expect more on such short 1 day stay.

Delightful hotel with super views
We selected this hotel as it was at the top of our online review shortlist. There are stupendous views from the rooms. It is very well located in terms of reachability from outside, and for trips to the nearby temples and view points. Hotel is rather new, and this is reflected in the availability of modern facilities and furnishings, such as lighting and bathroom fittings. Another floor is under construction. Restaurant is small but food is quite good at reasonable rates. Power was a problem during our stay, with generator running during most of the night. Emergency power back-up provides one light in the bedroom and one in the bathroom at night. TV, geyser, and phone charging points etc don’t work at these times. Staff were very helpful – Basant was particularly efficient and courteous. No WiFi. Cards weren’t accepted.
When It Comes to Natural Landscape Cameras can’t Capture Even 40 %
Perfect place for nature lovers. Those who have the desire to climb higher but can’t because of hundred reasons, this is the place which will give you that high. No need for treacherous treks to reach the heavenly places. Motorable road will take you there. Mighty Himalayan peaks in a stone-throwing distance- Panchchuli, Nanda Devi and Nandakot will welcome you. Believe me, none of the high-resolution Instagram or google images are 40% nearer to its actual grandeur. We haven’t yet invented the machine that will capture what we see with our eyes/ all senses. The height, colour, and the vastness are impossible to capture with machines.
Milam Inn is the best place to stay in the best place of Kumayun Himalayas. KMVN is not well maintained one. So, would recommend not to stay there. After reading this much you must have got whether this is the right place for you or not. So, without describing the beauty of the place further I would rather tell about the routes to get there. If you are visiting from Delhi by road or have reached in Kathgodam by train, your itinerary can be:
Day 1: Stay at Ramnagar or Pangot if you are a true nature lover and want to fill your tank with oxygen. Otherwise, Nainital can be your choice where you can shop and stroll in the mall.
Day 2: Stay at Chakori. Magnificent view of Himalayan ranges is going stay with you for years to come. You can go via Bageshwar or Berinag. Both the routes have a lot of stories to tell.
Day 3: Reach and stay in Munsiyari/Roam around Munsiyari market
Day 4: Visit Madkot/ can visit Nanda Devi temple/ Khulyia top trek/ Tamri Kund trek
Day 5: Ranikhet/ Bhimtal
Day 6: Back
Those who want to go for Milam/ Ralam Glacier trek from Munsiyari can plan.These places are hidden treasures of Himalayas.
Eye catching view of the Himalayan Range
Really enjoyed the location and services provided by the hotel. The hospitality was nice, hotel have car parking, we enjoyed bonfire in front of panchachuli peak.
i recommend this place for nature lover, specially for watching various birds variety..
Moderate sized, clean, well-appointed rooms offering large picture windows facing the mountains: you can spend all day sitting in the sun and gazing at them. Good food, prompt and courteous service. Car parking available.

Our family stay at Milam Inn was as cosy it could get in a sub-zero temperature. The food offered was customised and the management listened to our needs of pure vegetarian less spicy cuisine. The view of the Panchachuli Peak from the room is amazing.
-By Travel Eager
Average hotel with excellent view
The hotel is situated at the stating of Munsiyari and probably has the best view. The place is still under construction so expect some noise & dust.
Morning & evening look amazing from here. Rooms are comfortable.
Food is average and very limited in variety. They charge for extra everything. Heater costs extra than the room and the worst part is that they don’t provide any receipt for that if the room has been booked online. If you ask for receipt they will try to adjust it with food bill or won’t give it anyway.
Best part of the stay was room and location. Only one guy there who was working from 5 in the morning to 11 at night. These guys should hire some extra staff.
I gave it 3 stars just for location rooms & the guy who was working very hard from day to Night. Rest everything was not even average. Manager Himanshu should start providing receipts and help that guy with some work instead of sitting in cabin and reading newspaper.

Splendid view of Panchachuli peaks from the Hotel room!
Best view of Panchachuli peaks from this hotel. Good food in such remote location. great service staff. Loved tea and snacks which were very frequent in the cold weather. One should visit the museum and Nanda devi temple in Munsiyari. Beautiful and serene temple by Shanti Kunj. Loved the trekking to the kund which is near to the resort.
Have been here multiple times and would prefer the same hotel always !
