We stayed just for one night but would have loved to stay longer. The room were spacious and comfortable and the balcony view was stunning. The location is about 15 minutes by car from Shimla but Shivi was really helpful arranging a local taxi for us and even lending us an Indian mobile to arrange lifts back.Thank you so much... More

Our room was clean and we were happy to see that there was filtered water provided for free. It was very quiet, and we had a friendly few dogs and (less friendly) monkeys visit our window.... More

Aapo aap was the wonderful experience for our trip. It's an another home away from your home. As refreshing as morning sunshine. Shivi and the staff will not let you feel needy, they will make you too comfortable to feel like home. Aapo aap is too close to nature that one can not will feel like to go any where... More

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

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

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
