The hotel room was clean and good. The staff was polite and cooperating. The food was excellent. It was a perfect place to stay and keep apart the tensions in life. The stay in the hotel after a tiring day was like coming back home.

I stayed in this hotel in January 2014 while on way to Narkanda. This is the most pathetic hotel I have ever stayed in. We were allotted a room on the second floor towards the rear end. They charged Rs. 3000 for that pigeon hole for 1 night. The room is super small. TV channels were hazy. The room was... More

cleanliness of the hotel was not up to the mark, had no water in the bathroom on the last day of our stay, staff did not do anything about it, no internet was available. the only good thing was food in the restaurant and some friendly waiters.

Me and my family visited Shimla in the month of June which is an on-season for this hill station. Since we didn’t book the hotel previously, we really faced much problem in finding a good hotel at Mall road as all the hotels were pre-booked. Finally with help of an agent we were able to find a decent hotel “Hotel... More

As four friends we stayed in this hotel for two nights. It was cold and didn't provide heaters, we had our own and they charged 200 rupees a night for each of the two heaters, not good. The check in Manager was a really awful guy, no manners at all. Rooms were just ok but not that good windows dirty... More

Excellent place to stay & enjoy your vacation. The lodging is a value for your money. Yes, a tip advice for improvement. Shimla temperature dips to single digit during this time of year & a default room heater is appreciated for a warm tight sleep

I was booked into the hotel directly quite accidentally. We were three women including one aged so when I tried to book a room in the other hotel they own - Prashant Hotel I was told that as an elderly person would find it difficult to climb up (as there was no lift) we would be accommodated in Crystal Palace....
