Stayed here five nights, the reception when I arrived was welcoming and friendly. My room was basic but clean and spacious. Breakfasts in the restaurant were good, with decent views of the hills surrounding Shimla through the windows and on the two occasions I had an evening meal the food and service were great. The hotel is located on the... More

Good location if you're walking. Getting back to the hotel is uphill all the way, but it's not far from the Ridge and the Mall (main pedestrian areas with lots of sights). If you're driving, however, getting here is via a very long, circuitous route. The room was decent, spacious and clean tho not up to the standard they advertise... More

There's nothing too good about this Hotel. Firstly, we got too late to locate the hotel, as it is located very far. Though its just 5 mins away from the Ridge. Secondly, the hotel staff were not very friendly. So, the only good thing about this hotel is the distance from the Ridge or Church.

The room was once grand but now basic. Very clean. Service from staff was truly amazing, always helpful and friendly. However, the owner/manager was very unwelcoming and wanted to charge half of a night's stay to check out an hour late when we were the only guests. We waited in the lobby for this extra hour and were made to... More

We stayed there in last november 2013, good hotel with very good location accessible to mall road and ridge just behind Gandhi ji statue. Loved our stay there. The staff of hotel is very good . they have parking but you need to go through quiet a lot distance and sloppy roads to get to parking.

I stayed at Le Royale for a few days while touring the north on a motorcycle. It is a comfortable hotel and well located in Simla. However, on the last night, my motorcycle got vandalised (along with several cars) in the hotel's covered parking. No security. The staff weren't immediately helpful or apologetic, but when the manager got involved he... More

Ok. I read a lot of reviews & then choose this hotel. But i think most of the good reviews must be written by hotel staff itself. Because a sane person cannot write so good reviews about this hotel. Pros first: I think there are two good things about this hotel: A) Mall road accessibility is good 5-7 minute walk... More

I reached this hotel in the evening and booked two rooms 201 & 202. Both the rooms were in good shape. Also, the dinner and breakfast was of good quality. The most important advantage was the view outside the windows, it was awesome. A memorable trip......
