Its ideal for backpackers. No credit card facility, no windows for executive rooms, no space for extra mattress for two children.Pray that your neighbour does not smoke..the cigarettes smell enters your room in no time. Restaurant, housekeeping are all manned the same person. Food is good, but takes time. Location is good for Mall road trawlers, its 200 m from... More

Our stay at the hotel was very pleasurable. I had a telephone call with the owner Mr Bobby and he offered us a decent package deal which included 3-night stay with complimentary breakfast, pickup and drop from the station, one-day local sightseeing, and one-day trip to Kufri. We arrived on Monday evening, went to Kufri the following day, visited local... More

Excellent rooms with good view. Rooms have just been renovated so the place is shining like a new penny. The hotel has an excellent view of the valley and on the opposite site is the temple of Taradevi. The hotel is conveniently located close to the bus stand and the lift. Which makes movement to and from the mall very... More

Shimla is a well known hill station, we went there in April-May, this year. Weather was really good at that time. One of my friends told me about this hotel before. When we are returning from Rampur, I suddenly found the hotel on the road. I recollected my friend's suggestion. We stayed in this hotel for one night in May... More

Rooms were over priced. but that is the case with all other hotels during that period. Hotel staffs were not sufficient in number and we had to wait for a long time for room service after placing...

Stayed there in 2011. Rooms are bad. They are ill ventilated. Cold damp blankets and bed sheets, no proper heating in room and couldnot sleep for whole night. Washrooms and toilets stinks. Only good thing is good food.
