This is what can be termed as an apology for a hotel. The rooms are very small, shabbily maintained, the linen in the rooms are reused, the water heater do not work, room service is shoddy and the worst food at over the roof prices. The counter staff are brazen and the owner is arrogant and haughty. Please AVOID THIS... More

A hotel cannot get worse. The worst reception I have seen. The smell of cooking gas is perhaps their signature ambiance, The rooms are bad and the washrooms cannot get worse.The food which is extravagantly overpriced is bottoms down on taste. All in all AVOID THIS HOTEL.

We were pleased with our choice as we enjoyed the views. The rooms were fine and quiet. We were a bit surprised to have to pay quite a hefty extra fee for a heater (completely necessary in early Jan). The facilities were nothing special but perfectly adequate. The staff were rather grumpy but all in all we had a good...... More

Second room which we choose was little better. But in corridor u can always feel cigret and dampning smell. In night due to poor ventilation we had to open... More

My shimla trip last month was complete in all sense, expcept stay at this hotel. The experience turned Sour primarily due to poor management and food services. One of the staff at hotel told me why localities does not like his Hire and Fire modus operandi to optimize the operations cost. Good things first. Location is good- near Mall Road... More
