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.

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. 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.

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
