I took my parents along, so I had to make sure everything was in place. Booked a de luxe room in advance; they did not ask for advance payment! We arrived by car, and the staff informed us that parking and driver's lodging was free. Ours was a corner room with windows on two sides giving a beautiful view of... More

I visited Shimla in July 2014 and stayed at this Hotel. Rooms are having Carpets, which stinks. Service is OK. Rooms do not have good view outside. It provides free parking and free stay for the car driver. Location wise not so good, every time to reach Mall road you have to catch a paid lift service.

Room is ok. Bed is terrific. Bathroom is also good. Location is worst. Security is very tight, although last night a man fired one round bullet for some reason. Don't know about the food, because I am taking from outside. Much expensive than other hotels. Not worth of money.

Good room size, very good North Indian food, ample parking space which is a rarity in Shimla, walking distance from mall Road, walk for 150 meters, take a Govt lift which costs Rs 7 per head and you are on the Mall. Good for Family as well as business tour stay, staff are cordial unlike Govt tourist bungalows.

Excellent service, good food and rooms that are well attended. Better than most of the high end properties in Shimla. Deluxe rooms offer good views of Shimla town. Conveniently located from most of government offices and a brisk walk from the Mall road. A good experience for Shimla bound travellers.

This is flagship property of HPTDC and premium hotel. The location is good, interior is fine, rooms are spacious and open and room service is also fine. This is a Govt hotel but the quality is competing with pvt hotels. The restaurant is clean.modern and food quality is also excellent. The hotel is bit pricey but facilities is reciprocating it....

HHH is located in the heart of Shimla, it is place where i use to enjoy my stay with perfect blend of taste in food. It is located near Shimla High Court and due to my court work i use to stay in this hotel. This is high quality hotel with neat & clean surrounding.

It is a not a normal government operated hotel but maned by people who love tourist. the lack of fineness of infrastructure is more then made up by staff and food.The proximity to the lifts to the Ridge and just out of traffic makes it perfect location
