Fine choice. Pleasant, clean rooms. Rates appeared to be quite reasonable for Shimla (though a bit high compared to many other places in India). Probably the friendliest staff we encountered in India (and this says a lot); even the people cleaning the floors had a smile and greeting. We especially appreciated the loan of a guidebook to walks around Shimla.... More

Inspite of being a small hotel the staff and the food was outstanding. The valley view is beautiful and is close to the main attractions like the ridge and the Mall road. Kapil is a centrally located hotel with clean and spacious rooms and amazing views of the valley and mountains. Very accomodating staff and a very pleasurable stay.

We stayed in the top floor 'penthouse' with a private patio overlooking the valley. No onsite restaurant but meals served in room were very good and inexpensive, delivered quickly by friendly, unobtrusive staff. Quiet with no noise from other rooms and very little from street. Chandigarh can get chilly in the spring and this hotel has no central heating. The... More

Good hotel with excellent views. Bit over priced with food and other expenses. I guess Shimla as such has become a costly town compared to Manali. Otherwise excellent facilities and service. The location is also a plus.

The positive points about the hotel are - 1) Hotel rooms are very neat, clean and cozy. 2) Bathrooms are very clean, good and provides 24hr hot water. 3) Hotel... More

This hotel only has a few rooms but it is very clean! Nice staff too. Aside from these, you will have a 360 degree mountain view. The hotel of course is in Shimla. Coming here by car is already fantastic. It is like a Colorado, Switzerland,Wasington State and Utah all combined (Asia version). There are lots of hotels here and... More
