Food is very nice in Kapil Shimla and good behaving staff. They maintain cleanly and hygiene rooms. They located well near view points like mall road and kufri, it's convenient for tourists.. must quote that kapil shimla is the best place to stay and enjoy your SHIMLA tour with Low budget and Class Hotel experience..

No dining room but this was not a problem as we had the Penthouse which had provision for eating. Room was ample big enough for three of us (two adults and a large 17 year old). Watch... More

Its quite amazing how Kapil got so good ratings here on Tripadvisor. I guess that everything is subjective. We stayed at the penthouse room for two nights and yes its at the top of the building and with a amazing view (facing west). The wifi connection/system is hopeless. There is no restaurant so breakfast is served in the rooms. It... More

I have been to this hotel last year. Always thought of writing a review for this property. Hotel is small and cozy but on cleanliness and hygiene it sets an example. Being a small property it maintains its business model. Staff is very helpful. Only draw back is that they don't have any restaurant, and they serve the food in... More

Traveled in Jun 2015 for 2 days. It was a very good experience staying here. Rooms were clean and staffs were friendly. Food is served in rooms only and taste-wise its good. Near to mall road. They arrange cabs for local tours and nearby visiting places.

To start with cleanliness, it was excellent. 10 on 10. Then move to the am way very nice pictures. Then rooms, we booked a suite, nice and clean with all the basic amenities. My kidz simply loved it. Then come the utilities part, very well managed and placed. Each and every corner was neat and superbly maintained. Well Done!

Small clean peaceful budget hotel . Food is served in rooms only . Location is away from madness just adjacent to Radisson . Mall road is 15-20 min walk via lakkar bazaar . If budget allows go for penthouse suite

I chose this hotel as my first hault during my visit to Shimla and nearby places. Loved the hotel. Was greeted by a cake and local herbal tea... The view was amazing from the hotel. After visiting tattapani I got very high fever. The hotel staff arranged for medicine. Hotel is easily accessible from the Mall road....
