This hotel is located at the Ridge near Christ Church. As taxis cannot go near the Rigde and Mall area, one has to walk uphill with the luggage to reach the hotel. But on reaching Christ Church, the hotel sent one of its staff to help bring the luggage up to the hotel. As a lady travelling alone I felt... More

It was a pathetic experience right from the beginning. The hotel claims it's on the mall road whereas it's quite a steep climb from the mall. The rooms are small and linens unclean. Worst part is the hotel cab HP 02A 1045, which we took to go to Kalka. The driver didn't have a HP permit and didn't tell us... More

Hotel Doegar is located on the ridge in Shimla. It is in a great location with great views. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are nice, a little on the small side but our room had a nice balcony overlooking the mountains and town. The room does not have a great deal of space but we really... More

Stayed here for two nights. Room was large, lovely quaint design with wood panelling, and we had a beautiful view of Shimla. Good TV channels and wifi facilities, comfortable bed. There is no heating, and with the temperature dropping to just a few degrees we had to use extra duvets, which were kept in a cupboard in our room. Unfortunately... More
