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

The hotel despite being run by a govt. agency is an excellent place to stay in shimla. It is typically overbooked so advance booking is a must. The restaurant of the hotel is also very good and is very economical too.
