It is located away from the main road and is peaceful and quiet. Small but clean rooms. The staff are wonderful. Price is reasonable. Parking available for your vehicles and the hotel offers drops to the main road. Good budget hotel that offers WiFi, decent food and monkeys for company.

This is one of the Hotels where you can find Parking Space of your Vehicle. Hotel Staff is Friendly, Hotel is in a good location. Hotel offer complimentary transfers to mall road.

Reached Simla from Manali after a near accident on the ghats. Unnerved and tired, we were searching a proper hotel and it was getting dark. In Simla for only a day, we were looking for a basic but clean budget room with b/bfast. Chanced upon Hotel Fairmount. The budget room was clean with old and dark furniture but surprise, surprise,...

The hotel is located little bit far away from the city. The rooms are average in size. The food was also average in taste. The road leading to the hotel is very narrow and do not have sufficient parking space for the cars. They do not have generators also for the absence of power failure. There is always monkeys in...

The hotel is near a chain of hotels and is excellently located. The front desk staff was cooperative and efficient. The room was good and I was upgraded to the better room (suite). The buffet dinner was just alright. The choices are limited and not so tasty. The morning breakfast was good with vast choices. The staff was energetic to... More

I am rewriting my experience of staying at Fairmount-Shimla (posted on 06th June 2014). Post leaving our hotel & coming back from Shimla, till this day we are still fighting the battle of getting our money back, though it was promised by the hotel to the booking agent. Reason shared with us is since we wrote a review at Trip... More

I booked the family suite and the room which was given was on ground floor. There was only one bathroom whereas there were two rooms and the rooms were very suffocating. I asked for another room and they told me they don't have others, whereas their were many unoccupied rooms. The hotel is around 6 KMS from Mall road and... More

Away from the hubbub side, this is for sure a must visit. Food was good and staff was cordial. Pick up n drop Facility to mall road adds up for a comfortable stay. The best was the parking, safe and right in front, which is actually a concern in Simla. Would love to stay here every time we go there.

I traveled to Shimla for my first wedding anniversary during July 11-14, 2014. Though Fairmount did not fit into my budget based on online rates, i took a gamble and called the hotel. Since it was close to off season (July 15 - Sep 15) , I was able to get rooms for 25% lesser rates. I found the rooms... More
