Locationwise its near the lift to the MALL and very easy to mve around on your own without depending on Greedy cabbies. The food... More

The hotel is very near to the LIFT to Mall Road. And there is a short cut to hotel's 3rd floor if you're walking down from Mall road which is well guided through signboards. But one has to take few steps to use this short cut. Now coming to services and rooms. The rooms are not spacious as The Peterhoff... More

This is a very large hotel in Shimla just little distance from the Lift for Mall road The size of the property, cleanliness, helpful staff, good food and walkable distance from the Lift are the positives to speak about. However, these positives are defeated by the size of the room, missing accessories like fridge/kettle, pricey food, etc. Also, due to... More

Compared to what you get, price tag is about INR 1000-1500 on higher side. We booked their Double Bed Room Semi Deluxe. Good side: 1) Big property. 2) Grand reception and sitting area. 3) Travel desk near reception. 4) Can walk to reach lift. 5) Helpful reception. 6) Clean Bad side: 1) Room size is quite small. 2) At the...

Hotel was nearby so we reached hotel by 06 AM on 03 June’14. Our room was from 1200 hrs so we did not get early check-in.... More

The best part about the hotel is its location, its very near to the Lift thus reaching the mall takes just few minutes. Apart from that its a well maintained property by HP Tourism. Try to get the rooms on the higher floors.
