While in Himachal Pradesh, I alway prefer to stay with HPTDC. Now I am searching for new alternatives to change my perspective about HPTDC just because one short stay at HHH, Shimal. front desk people were rigid and rude. Rooms are crampy, stinking carpets........... There is coloured TV kept at bed level, thus making it very difficult to watch. Bucket... More

One of the Best Govt. run properties that I have stayed in. The staff is well-mannered and polite. The building is old and shows the age from the rooms to the common areas but the good part is, the Hotel is gradually renovating all its rooms. Not all rooms may be good so better ask them to show you multiple... More

The rooms and the washrooms are quite spacious. The view from room was simply awesome especially at night when we could see the entire shimla twinkling . Food is good . Location, little away from the mall road and one needs a vehicle to get around. We came walking all the way from the mall road and a shortcut to... More

One big advantage of staying at this property is that one does not have to worry about parking if one is driving down since the hotel has ample of parking space which otherwise is a very big problem in Shimla. It is close to the Mall which is center of attraction in Shimla but be prepared for a steep climb... More

if you don't have other options, come here. it s at a great location near famous mall road lift but poor management has damaged the chances of possible revival. Rooms in 4 floors of old structure are just like a cheap guest house but rooms in other side blocks are bigger but not better. ok now a look at the... More

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

It was my third or fourth visit to Shimla.....the last one being good 8-10 years back. Couldn't believe that this was the very town I had visited last.........busy and crowded beyond words....! 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
