It's not a hotel(typical one). It's like living in a royal house. So expect abundant freshness and warmth. Excellently maintained. Beauty(Palace) within beauty(Simla). Although this is kind of a vintage experience, so not like a typical modern hotel if that's what you are expecting. Food is exceptionally fresh and the service is courteous and trained to make you feel at... More

Has basic amenities like indoor games (Carom & Table Tennis), decent room service and decent breakfast served. The main mall road area is about 1.5 kms, but the road... More

This is an amazing historic hotel located about 20 mins from The Mall shopping area. The corridors ooze history with all the photographs of famous people who have stayed there. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and it only took a few minutes to resolve any issue we were having. As with all Shimla hotels, there is no central... More

Traveled with my wife in March 2014 to Shimla and we decided to stay in this property for three days. This is the right choice if you are looking for some peaceful quality time. The hotel, being the property of the kings/princes, makes you feel like one of them. The staff members are so well behaved, polite and eager to... More

One of the best places in Simla with a courteous staff. Royal treatment at its best. Luxurious lobby which makes you feel one among them. Restaurant serves buffet which is acceptable quality.
