Best home stay we have ever been! Very friendly staff, Shivi was so nice and helpful. Made us feel really at home. Great food cooked by the local chef, especially the desserts we loved. Our room was gigantic and very clean. The views from the rooms and balcony are breathtaking. Only small disadvantage was that the home stay is located... More

We stayed there for two night in month of June and it was quite hot as compare main Shimla. This property is quite far from Mall road (10 KM) and you need to pay Rs700 every time you would like to visit the mall road. Like : Property itself is good and view is nice from terrace or balcony. Dislike:... More

We chose this place by reading the reviews on tripadvisor as our tour package guy could not suggest us anything that we would like. After reaching Shimla, in the beginning when our driver said he ​was not aware of the location of the place though he ​knew it was in a remote location outside main Shimla, which got us worried...

We selected this Home Stay because we wanted a quit place, away from the busy center of Shimla. Yes, it was difficult to find but Shivi sent a driver who met our car in the town and brought us to the Aapo Aap Home Stay. What to say? Consider yourself lucky if you had a chance to stay here and... More

Me and my wife stayed here for two nights, and were sad that we couldn't stay longer. It is a delightful place away from the bustle of shimla, and if you want a peaceful holiday, this is your place. The biggest attraction of this place is of course, the hospitality of the host Shivi. He treats you as if you... More

First of all, this is a Home stay ... and it is all about its owner Shivi. A wonderful person who takes a deep personal interest in your comfort. Then it is about the location and the views. It is a bit removed from the main city of Shimla, but thats what also gives it its quiet, serene ambience with... More
