One can write a MAHABHARAT on its 'Cons'. I shall only write the 'Pros' 1. Bang opposite 'Snow view parking'- convenient for people travelling on their own vehicle, however, parking charges will make your pockets very light. 2. Within walkable distance of Kalibari, Mall road & Ridge- not for people with week knees or heart (it invloves steep stairs of... More

This hotel is very poor, the beds are uncomfortable and it is generally unclean. The highlight of staying was doing battle with large rats in the middle of the night. There are many access points for them into the rooms two of which were under our bed. We eventually sealed them off with flight bags but we were left with... More

Very dirty rooms. We went for it because it is relatively cheaper - now I regret. Give away a little more money and you might get a better hotel. The flooring has been cleaned before years probably. The food is very bad and priced high. The toilets are kind of ok. You expect to have a good view from the... More

The taxi takes 120 rupees to take you to this hotel from the Shimla Railway station. The hotel is approachable from the road and you don't need to lug your baggage a long way up, maximum 15 stairs. The reception checks you in. The rooms are good and I will say worth the money as it is a tourist spot... More

this hotel names "hotel blue diamond" gained advantage because it is located on road plane, however in shimla for everything you have to climb up by walk(only) for about 30 min. for children and aged people it is difficult to climb up. Apart from this shimla specific issue, this hotel is not worthy for the money we paid(Rs.1100/-per day), because... More
