We were two families looking to enjoy snow at Shimla. Instead of driving down from Delhi we chose to travel by train / toy train and opt for a budget stay at Shimla at mall road. We booked this hotel via goIbibo...the deal was good. We went through reviews at several websites and took a punt. With not great expectations... More

the hotel has 5 floors, with lift, good clean environment, but room are on smaller side, bus stand is located right outside the hotel, train station is some 800m from the hotel, overall the best hotel you can find in terms of connectivity of bus, taxis

I called in advance for 2 adjacent and clean rooms. One room offered had dampness and seepage.. after some arguments I was offered an... More

Hotel just has the location advantage of being next to the lift which goes to mall road. I stayed there for 2 days in august but the rooms (superior) were stinking. Man at the reception was not at all friendly. Make sure you bargain well with the hotel coz its not worth the card rate.

We stayed in this hotel in a group. The hotel is located in a good. The rooms were very pretty sloppy. One room they had provided a free upgrade, was good. We had to ask the management to change rooms to higher type. The reception starts to operate only after 8AM. Our experience wasn't exciting.
