Don't bother wasting your time here if you have young children. Staff wouldn't allow us to park in front for 5 minutes while we sorted ourself out as we had not booked in advance (note this was off peak). When inside, there was a consistent inability to smile at children. Rooms appeared clean and space was ok, but did not... More

Marina is a classy hotel while most people won't expect till they are there. I have stayed over 10 times here. The rooms are very very nice with a modern design and a balcony to each room. I have stayed on all floors. The best thing is the rooms are equipped with HD channels! Never seen this even in star... More

This is a perfect example of how photos can fool us. Firstly, The approach of the hotel is not for faint hearted if you are driving yourself. On arrival at 1pm we were told that we will have to wait for 2 hrs since the rooms are not ready, When we showed the Make my Trip vouchers which clearly stated... More

We stayed in Hotel Marina, Shimla for 1 night. When we saw our room we were like 'wow' what a room. The interiors of the hotel are superb. I do not think there is any other hotel in Shimla so luxurious and posh. We stayed in superior room located on the 3rd floor. The view from the room was okay... More

Excellent Location, in terms of approachability to The Mall, and still away from the crowd. Very courteous staff, Excellent food, beautiful rooms, and wonderful architecture. I stayed there during mid-June, and it was extremely peaceful there,... More

A great position, and as the hotel is new, the facilities are all very good. Everything about the room was of excellent quality. I used the Business Centre, and the staff were very happy to oblige although it was late at night. Dinner in their restaurant was outstanding. The "Mutton" (Goat) Biryani was exceptional, and I didn't have a better... More

Marina is a new hotel that is located a few yards away from the main mall road in Shimla. The location is quite good because one can just walk out of the hotel premises and onto the mall road, which has become really clean, no garbage dumped on the road, no traffic allowed and therefore no pollution. Only some authorized... More
