3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is far from Mall Road. Though they provide complimentary transfers to and fro Mall road but that only once during your entire stay. The view from the rooms was beautiful. Do not expect more. Rooms have very faded furniture but neat and clean. There was no tea/coffee maker also in the room.... More

For the first time I did not get a good idea about this hotel from TripAdvisor. Most reviews suggested close to 4 for this where as the hotel does not even deserve 0.5. I cant remember even one area where the hotel was good. Starting from the front desk to the rooms the service the facilities and hospitality. Everything sucked. ... More

Staff is friendly and food was good but it's very far from the main city center. When we checked in the linen were not clean and we had had to ask them to change it. Staff was friendly. I think we were the only other guests they had so they served breakfast and dinner at our rooms. The service was... More

We planned a trip to Shimla well in advance and booked this hotel after consulting friends and family. Star rating heard was a 3 star, but we were more than pleasantly surprised when we checked in. A very nice property, extremely courteous staff and the food was absolutely delicious. Parking space available is not so much but considering the environment... More

I have been there for two days from 24-12-14 to 26-12-14. They served the non-veg in dinner without asking although my family is vegetarian. Along with that the argue from there side is that 90% indians are non-vegetarian and it is not there mistake. Also they have have changed our room size also. The room was very samll too.

Warning: Please do not get carried away by the tempting photographs on the website. The 3 nights that we spent there were quite terrible! The so called super deluxe room #305 on the 3rd floor didn't have anything 'deluxe' about it. The room did not even have a tea / coffee maker. The room was ill ventilated with a terrible... More

Nothing positive write 1. Poor customer service 2. Dirty rooms, broken furniture wooden laminates, dirty old towels, sent pictures of differenr room and alloted different room 3. Talk to Delhi team and upgraded me but the room was pathetic. Spoiled our mood. We feel cheated 4. Lodge or dharamshala is better than this hotel

The hotel located far from Mall Road. But is good for one who is seeking a peaceful stay. The deluxe room was clean but small. The maintenance of the room was low as there were many things broken in the room. I did not find a charging point for my mobile or laptop. The heater provided was insufficient to maintain... More

Fairmont is located 7kms from the bus stand on the heights which gives an excellent view of the Pines and the Fir trees. Very well behaved staff. Hotel also offers free to and fro mini bus service to the Chowk. Good rooms with wooden architecture and cozy beds keeps u warm and comfortable.
