I made a booking with hotel The Lotus kalka despite some of the bad reviews. When i reached I was pleasantly surprised by the looks of it. The Rooms are small but comfortable. there is nothing extraordinary about it except for helpful people running it. Otherwise a very simple stay. Dont expect much and u wont get disappointed.

The location is very good. It is very close to the railway station and so it is OK if you just have to pass a night. The response from the hotel staff was OK but it took too long to get even some hot water.

This hotel is not suitable for people travelling with family. Also the approach to the rooms is quite steep and dangerous and could cause harm to elderly people . So it is best to give this hotel a wide berth.

The room photographs shown at website are highly misleading and innocent customers will get cheated. Bed linen were dirty. Room wall was having stains. It was a very bad beginning of our holiday trip.

I had read some negative reviews about this hotel on Tripadvisor, so I was kind of prepared for the worst. But to my surprise, it was indeed good. I guess the hotel staff also took the reviews here quiet seriously and renovated the hotel. The owner said the hotel was renovated just a week back. So everything in the hotel... More

I had to stay at Kalka for my business trip to Shimla. I had to look for room near Railway Station and Hotel is just about the corner. Rooms are small but with basic amenities to spend the night. The food was delicious. Overall a nice place to spend the night at a budget amount.

I along with my wife have to stay in this hotel as we have to catch toy train in the morning. The room was average but cleanliness was negligible. The pillow was not worth to touch even and when we asked for another one, it was exchanged with similar one. Food was nice and the best thing is location. It... More
