Booked the Super Deluxe Room, though what we got wasn't as good, Restaurant alongside has good food, Close to Market , Mall road, so location is good. Beds are small, so three ppl with xtra payment not worth it.

Situated in the busy street of shimla, hotel offers comfortable rooms and good food. From outside, it lloks like a small lodge, but, the rooms are quite spacious and comfortable. Near to mall road, Good considering your average stay around 2-3 days.

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.

Mall is also far from this hotel, which is somehow troublesome for older people. But in Shimla, there is restriction in movement of... More

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.
