Absolutely not a value for money proposition. Location is fantastic. Manager tried his best to help us out however overall hygiene is lacking in the hotel. Did not get anything in room service. Had to remind 4 times for an extra mattress.

Have been there (with family) just for a night and had a comfortable night. Rooms are small. Very close to station (walking distance) and a good restaurant nearby. Choose to stay at this hotel, if you are taking the toy train from Kalka to Shimla

We stayed at The Lotus for one night, before catching the train to Shimla early the next morning. They accommodated an after hours arrival and even upgraded our room. The room service was fantastic - one of the yummiest curries in India thusfar! For a bustling street it was not too noisy, however we were on the top floor.

I stayed at this hotel in 11 January 2015 night.Hotel is good for travellers to toy train from kalka to shimla.But be prepared for train to get delayed as Delhi kalka mail reaches late due to fog and they make passengers from Kalka to suffer.Hotel staff is responsive and good.

This is one of the few hotels available near Kalka station. Tourists either travelling to Shimla or to Delhi stays here overnight. The hotel is located hardly 500 mtr aways from Kalka station hence convenient to put in for trains arriving late night. I stayed here with family while travelling to Shimla as well returning back to Delhi. I reached... More
