I had stayed in Holiday Home, on my honeymoon for a day in Feb 2013 - it is a decent priced hotel, though a bit overpriced in my opinion. Overall, in a great location - very close to Mall Road Lift (within 500m), offered excellent views of Shimla town and had excellent food available as part of their menu. The... More

It was a good experience. I stayed there for two nights with family, last month. The price is a little high, but the services, just like all HPTDC hotels was ok. But the view is good and also the location. Cleanliness needs to be improved.

One of the big selling points of the HHH must be the views from the higher rooms, overlooking the whole of Shimla from its prominent location on a curved spur at the end of town. I took an economy room, which meant being accommodated in the annexe with no view. The room was basic, clean, comfortable, with a hot shower... More

A very nice, decent and a cozy property to stay in Shimla. Located close to the lift at a walkable distance. The newly renovated rooms are good and the place looks amazing after the snowfall. Service is good and the food they serve is also good.

On a work trip and was put up at HHH, it was an outstanding property and the service was prompt. I couldn't believe that it was a government undertaking. I had the best time at the hotel, the location is very near to the lift and snowfall only made it better while walking up to the mall road.

Visited Shimla with hubby in the month of August 2013.Its a decent enough property with close proximity to the MALL area of Shimla.For older members,please note that the walk to the mall is a steep road.Parking inside the hotel is limited and open.Food is reasonably good.Hospitality was also fine.Rooms donot have a view to die for.Overall,a decent place to stay.

It is a nice and big property with all amenties however not maintained properly. There is lack of professionalism in hotel staff. Food quality is average. Rooms are adequately furnished, but the quality of same is not upto the mark. Overall not so excited to visit again.

I stayed for 2 nights in December - and it was a big disappointment & let down. Rooms were small and quite cramped for a family of two adults & 2 small kids. They charge 25% for extra beds - which is way two much for a kid 9 years of age. I was forced into taking a MAP plan... More
