We arrived in Shimla after heavy snow and in freezing cold conditions. No taxi could take us from the busstand so we had to walk with our luggage for almost an hour through the snow. Once we arrived at the hotel the friendly owner offered his best room to us. We stayed in the Family suite with wooden floor and... More

Rooms were not so good. there was no food service provided by the hotel coz then kitchen staff was on leave. one good thing is that this place very... More

This hotel is located on the hill up towards the Hanuman Mandir and just 5 minutes walk downhill to the main shopping/eating area. The Hotel owner is a very friendly man who runs the place with his family. I had the top floor room with a super view over Shimla. Stunning both in the morning and night time. Good hot... More

I have stayed in this hotel for 2 Nights with my Family and room was so beautiful, and nice view we have from the window, but the only draw back of this hotel is its location, difficult to reach. The manager Gulzar Saab was so cooperative and we enjoyed a lovely moments of our life. Thank you Gulzar Sahab for... More

We wanted to take a spur of the moment trip to Shimla and did not have much time to plan. On checking trip advisor, we decided to go for Amar Palace as the price of the room was right within our budget. We called Ms. Charu, the owner and she quote a much lesser price to us than what was... More

During our Shimla Manali tour we had stayed in Hotel Amar Palace. Let me list down first positive points: 1. By just going down the up hill road you reach the Mall road ( just 5 minutes walking distance) i.e. Church or if you have seen 3 idiots then the place where Ranchhod Chanchad's friends were standing to find out...
