Staff were great, friendly and very willing to provide advice based on local knowledge, recommendations and directions. Good food and spectacular views from garden and restaurant. Clean and comfortable. Although I would recommend planning showers in advance as water isn't always hot. However, I sense that this is the case across Shimla.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Immaculately maintained and clean. Excellent value and fabulous views. Good restaurant for breakfast and dinner, they put on the Tandoor for us even though we were out of season. Pleasant garden for marsala tea with a view. A bit of a hike from the Mall but worth it. My brother and I could not fault... More

The hotel is a short steep walk from the Mall. The building is new, but has a swiss-chalet style. A few rooms have views to the mountains - though in summer the view is obscured by cloud. I was in room 301 which is Super Deluxe (and has such a view, in fact 2 views). Off-season: I managed to get... More

Hotel Le Royale, Shimla .....Very Very Bad Experience..... This hotel is located on so much height women, children and old people having low stamina cannot afford to go up and down. My suggestion is there are number of good hotels which are not available on net, so once you reach Shimla, then only decide where to stay after seeing the... More

We stayed here for one night after moving from a poor hotel further down the hill, so it appeared great on first inspection. It was cleaner than most in Shimla but definitely over priced for what you get. We viewed the super deluxe which had great views but was over 1000 rupees more than the deluxe which we went for...

We booked a last minute one night stay at Le Royale. The hotel itself looks really nice--it has a sort of colonial feel to it. The rooms are well-decorated and fairly clean (except the sheets, which had stains on them), and the beds are comfortable. The telephone in our room was broken. The best part about the hotel was the... More

I stayed at this hotel 2 nights. All staffs and manager are very nice and helpful. They recommended any places where I should visited otherwise I must missed Viceregal lodge :). The hotel is located not too far from mall road just around 5 min walk down the hill.
