A hotel filled with positive environment. Arrangements of hotels were very good & convenient. Comfortable rooms with outstanding food. Room Service menu is elaborate and whatever you order is done at it’s best. Overall a sensible and convenient place to stay for a business trip or a family getaway.

Although being touted as one of the best of HPTDC, it's not actually the one. The rooms are small and rents are high. Although staff, cleanliness, own parking (though small) and proximity to lift for mall road are the plus points. At this price there are many more hotels which are much better!!!

Really is this what you call a hotel??? Then i am amazed what would one call a dharamshala. To the worst a hotel experience can be......is this cheap - my foot. It was just awkward just staying here, on top of this some lad from shimla said that food is very good here. Oh GOD it was crap, SARKARI babu's... More

We checked in to this hotel at night, smooth check-in and proceeded to room. Pros: Easily accessible, needs a facelift. Amazing view ! Although everything looked good , staff has a little odd behaviour. They need some rejuvination. Seems overworked kind. Restaurant closes pretty early - ie. 1030 or so and but they allowed us to stay longer only had... More

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
