We have been to Shimla lot many times and have stayed in a lot of hotels. So this time when we went there we decided to give this hotel a shot and stayed here. Despite of all the bad reviews (which must be of the old hotel) this to our surprise was a good hotel. We stayed in the deluxe... More

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
