We stayed in Aapo Aap the summer before last and our stay was a very memorable one! This was our first halt in our 8 day trip to Shimla Manali and Chandigarh. We had had a rough start with the travel agent not sending the booked cab and we having got to miss the toy train ride but a warm... More

Most of the home stays we have stayed at in India have been of the cheap and cheerful variety whereas this one is quite a bit smarter and more formal. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and hot water and amazing views. They are a bit separate from the main house which is nice. We were there just after... More

Aapo Aap Homestay was without doubt the highlight of our entire holiday. Shivi is an excellent host and a lovely man. He looks after you so well and he ensures a perfect stay at all times. His family too welcomed us into their home with open arms. They involved us in a special Puga (Hindu prayer ceremony) on the day... More

Talk about, peaceful, clean well lit rooms, with a caring host and the answer in Shimla would be Aapo aap. Tea, coffee, ‘Sunrise’ etc. was served right in our bed room! Needless to say that we (family with 2 kids) enjoyed our stay here. In our eagerness to explore the neighborhood, we took a late night stroll and eventually lost... More

We stayed here for two nights and it was really an incredible experience. The home stay is run by this really friendly and warm family. When we reached this place in the morning (after searching for many other hotels in the center of Shimla), we did not know what to expect because we didn't book prior to arrival. Even though...

High expectation after reading through all the reviews, but the service was pathetic. Power cut at 5 am meant no heating, no hot water, no response to all complaints. If you can live in difficult situations then you can take the risk, else I suggest please avoid it. The location certainly is not comfortable at all. The room layouts are... More

You would appreciate the fact that at 05:00 AM, in the wee... More

We only stayed one night at this lovely home away from home due to some freak issues with the power. We arrived and Shivi our host actually give up his own room to accommodate us. Alternative accommodation and transport was also seamlessly organized and dinner was waiting for us as well. Shivi and his lovely team went above and beyond... More
