Stayed in S1 Room, overall a nice experience. Staff is very courteous, food is good except Morning breakfast which was a big letdown as very few items were there to choose from. Room service is good and prompt.

Be prepared for the traffic difficulties in Shimla. Many hotels are not reachable by car. That is why Hotel Holiday Home is a good choice, because it is near to a main road and close to the city centre. In my accommodation the bathroom was extremely clean, and the room too. The staff is polite, the food in the restaurant... More

Took us almost 1 hour from the start of Shimla main town to Holiday Home...whew!! But the moment we entered its private road......all our tension and fatigue disappeared.... More

Hhh is a very nice place. It is conviently located on cart road itself but the distance to the lift from the hotel is not very easy. You have to struggle with the car blaring horns and then all dust due to moving vehicles. Rooms are nice and big. We stayed in cosy comfortable. There is a way from back... More

From the rooms to the service everything was excellent.. If you would like a good view of Shimla then you should take the semi deluxe rooms or the deluxe ones.. The luxury suites are nice but the view from there isn't really good.. The food is really nice.. Altogether it was a GOOD STAY!!

This hotel is centrally located in Shimla, from walking distance of famous elevator that takes you to mall. Rooms are large and clean with wooden floor. Rooms are very quiet in the morning but in the evening you hear the city. Bathrooms are also large and well ventilated. It not very new property so except some old fashioned things around.... More
