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

Beautiful house, our huge sunny room had a view of the hills and wonderful sunrises. Very quiet and peaceful. The host Shivi, was so helpful and kind, his staff were great. The food was delicious. We wished we could have stayed longer. When we first arrived at night, after a long day of travelling, we were a bit disappointed that... More

My partner, Lynn, and I stayed here for eight nights in February and it was one of our most memorable holiday experiences ever. Shivi is one of life's lovely people - kind, generous, funny, good-natured, friendly, considerate: the list could go on. Right from the start, Shivi and his staff showed remarkable concern for us. We arrived at a few... 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
