I stayed at Hotel Kapil. It is walkable to mall road. Sunrise and sunset view from room is very good. They have complementary drop and pickup to the Lakkad Bazar/Mall road. The room is clean and all great facilities. Welcome drink was also great ! I would recommend this hotel.

The hotel is on the opposite side of the mall lift, that's a bit less congested side of the city and at least a 15 minutes walk from the mall ridge area. The hotel is located just 500 mtrs before Radisson and overlooks the valley. You have to specifically book a valley facing room to get a picturesque view from... More

Great cozy place, wonderful hospitality. Good for couples. Above all that yummy food. Whatever I order at any time came by well. The food was not charged extra, as it was part of package, but they served whatever we ordered.

Visited for 1 night at this hotel the view from the room was good from balcony. Amenities in the room are quite excellent and stay is comfortable. Negative is you can be heard outside the room and vice versa so privacy is disturbed. They have their dinner closed at 9:30 but on request still made it available at 9:45. Food... More

I recently visited Shimla along with my wife and stayed in Hotel Kapil from 1/5/2015 to 3/5/2015. I came to know about this hotel from Trip Advisor only and now I completely understand why this hotel received traveler Choice award in back to back years. Below are my comments on the hotel. 1> Excellent service 2> Very polite behavior of... More

This place is perfect for budget travelers, nice view from windows and lovely atmosphere. Neat Clean and nice staff made our stay worth it. The food is very average that staff needs to improve. The breakfast doesn't have many options and the toast was made of stale bread. Although after complaining they didn't charge for breakfast.

Neat, clean, specious, best budget hotel in shimla. Chose hotel Kapil for our vacation . Stayed in room 102 which has 2 rooms and more spacious than expected. Didn't use many facilities but complementary breakfast was good. Though service towards the last day deteriorated.
