Aapoo Aap Homestay lives up to its name: it is homely in the care and treatment of guests, where nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spacious and unusual in their furnishings - more like a palace than a home. The food is wonderful and made from ingredients bought fresh from the market each day. I cannot recommend this... More

Aapo Aap was a wonderful, accommodating, and beautiful home to stay at. Shivi, the owner, his family and staff are extremely helpful and kind. The rooms are spacious and lead to a huge balcony that offers beautiful views of nature. Our room had a separate bathroom, walk in closet, bathroom, separate living room, and a shared pantry with fridge. Being... More

Last week-end I travelled to Shimla and stayed at Aapo Aap Home Stay. I would like to say from the beginning the place did live up to all the positive feedback already shared on this website - I didnt want to leave! Be prepared for a very positive experience which starts from the amazing panoramic view over the lush green... More

There are a lot more adjectives to define my stay at Aapo aap. I stayed at Aapo aap for the first time in August last year and I knew that my Shimla visits will now only be spent in Aapo Aap. I visited first with just a friend and this time it was my entire family of 11 people. The... More

We stayed at Aapo Aap for three nights while exploring Simla. We are two couples travelling for the fourth time together in India, so fairly experienced and with certain expectations. At first glance the home stay seems a bit far from town, but this proved a positive feature: apart from Mall Rd and the Ridge, Simla is a traffic nightmare.... More

We couldn't have asked for a more homely stay in Shimla. The place seems to be built as an extension around a villa on hillside. Each room is quite spacious. We took the family suite which had a private balcony. The view of valley from Balcony is awesome. I almost didn't want to go anywhere and just sit in the... More
