The hotel says it is a kilometer from the mall road, that is pretty accurate, except that it is a km uphill. The road to the place was covered in ice when we got there and it was lucky none of us slipped and cracked our skulls. The receptionist is a grumpy old man who is extremely rude and unhelpful....

This hotel is very good for view of Shimla, its changing weather, clouds, mountains from the window of Honey Moon Room. All rooms may not have that kind of view. Ridge and Mall Road are very closer. But the approach to hotel is by walk only, you need to walk about half Km and if its raining that time and... More

With luggage it was very inconvenient. - They offered us a very inferior room. It was stinking and damp. It... More

The hotel was at a huge height!!! We had to walk up the steep route for 20minutes to reach there. We had to hire Coolies to carry our luggage which itself cost us quite an amount. The hotel room service is very poor! There are much better hotels in Shimla as compared to the Amar palace. The rooms were too... More
