It was not value for money. It was costly as per service.The food was nice. There was a water problem in hotel. Just a normal hotel. The prices should be less. It was in a good location. In middle of market.

We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights in April, this year. Hotel is placed in the Ram Bazar, just opposite to Ram Mandir. It is not possible to move to the hotel without walking some distance.

Room service and food was fine but I didn't like TV also charging socket was only one. Bathroom was average.They are good in ventilation and views from windows. Its near mall road not on mall road so you really need to push your self to go some heights.

We arrived in Shimla at around 5:30pm on the Himalayan Queen. The guy organising taxi’s at the train station said a taxi could only go half way to the hotel, we would have to walk the rest. The taxi pulled up at the side of the road, about 100m from the bus stand and the driver just pointed up a... More

We actually reached hotel Amber based on our cab drivers recommendation. We had booked our stay at another hotel, but due to some error from their side, the room was not available when we reached there and we could not wait. But we had no regrets. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Would like to stay at the... More
