We loved this hotel. There aren't many rooms, but be absolutely sure to pay a little extra and get a "Super Deluxe" room, like we did. The view is absolutely spectacular. I believe the cheaper rooms don't have a view. The difference in price is very little. Our room was (by our standards) huge, beautifully decorated, and the most amazing... More

Excellent, warm n courteous staff. Good room-dining facility as they have no restaurant. Great and clean rooms. Even after our stay with them, they gave us a room for couple of hours on our return from sight-seeing for freshening up until we could take the car to board the bus. Something which is rare among hotels today. Recommended place to... More

Hotel Kapil, much like the whole of Shimla Is perfect for couples. For solo backpackers it may be worth going direct to Manali instead. Hotel was good, great service and fantastic views out of the window

We made a good choice of a place to stay in Shimla by choosing hotel Kapil. We stayed there for a single night in June, 2015. There was no dearth of amenities provided by them which includes electric kettle, hair drier etc. The room as well as the washroom was very tidy. Though they don't have a restaurant, they have...

The room was a non-valley facing one so there was not much to offer on the front. The service was good, the Wifi service can be better, the staff was polite, Kitchen should be open after 10 pm for snacks and tea/coffee, The sleep quality was not good because you can hear the traffic outside. If possible take the rooms... More

My wife and I stayed at Kapil Hotel for 3 nights in the Penthouse suite. We had a bedroom, a living room and a (small but adequate) balcony to ourselves. The view ,from the balcony,of the green hills with tiny red-roofed cottages sprinkled all around, misty & clear in parts, was a tonic for the eyes. The hotel is a... More

A very nice place, seriously. Get the penthouse at all possible costs, it's amazing. Me and my girlfriend stayed there for 5 nights, the views are amazing, and it feels like it's your own gaff. Even writing this review brings back great memories. The staff are very nice people, and the food is great. Get the penthouse for the amazing... More
