Really friendly small hotel with helpful staff and a good position for the centre of Shimla. Don't be put off by the in room dinning, all the food is cooked in the hotel and is served promptly and is of a high quality at reasonable prices. Everything cleared away once you have finished by efficient room service. The view from... More

This hotel from its exterior looks like a hole in the wall. But the minute you step in, you know it's different. It's small, quaint and a classic case of good things come in small packages. Our room was extremely compact and so was the washroom. However having said that, it had all the amenities that are expected. It overlooked... More

I had a wonderful stay. The best thing i liked about this hotel is their clear and frank communication. The rooms were small but so was communicated beforehand. It's a small hotel without any activities, same was disclosed beforehand as well. Not at any point i felt cheated as i didn't had any false notions in my head about the... More

Few rooms have view to mountains [we were not given :( though, receptionist/ manager told that no other rooms are available at that time] To our bad luck- our room was not... More

My travel agent had booked me for 2 nights after reading reviews. Its totally a con game. This hotel at the best can be called SLEAZY. I went there after a tedious journey from Chandigarh. The first look also was that this is a backpackers hotel charging around 1500.00 per room. Rooms are tiny, bed covers are like someone slept... More

I regret that I had to visit Shimla for a business trip and not with family. I would have loved to stay at this hotel with my family.Rooms are specious and with modern amenities . I loved the ambience of the hotel. I hope to come back soon but this time with my family.
