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

I had to stay in this hotel for a night to catch an early morning train to shimla. The rooms were no fancy but the place meets the need of one night stay without any fuss...Budget hotel just around the Railway Station and steep staircase actually prepares you for Shimla trip

This is the most disastrous stay I ever experienced. The Hotel has no AC and only a room cooler of years old and sick looked is provided. The room service is the worst. In the night around 12 midnight the cooler has started malfunctioning and to our nightmare the room boy has just vanished and no answer came from the... More

The Lotus gives you fairly clean rooms, but too constricted. No space to move around. Not worth the money. The cooler worked without water most of the night. The blankets were never cleaned at any time.

Pros - location, location, adjoining restaurant, value and accommodating and courteous manager. Cons - claustrophobic rear facing room, poor bedding, noisy ventilation, warm rooms with cooler only I will recommend it only for a short over night halt for budget travellers.

To board a toy train from Kalka we have to stay there for single night. Room was little small with average condition.Room & toilet quality was average. Still it is worth to stay only for single night. Best thing - Waling distance from Railway Station.

These guys took great care of us even minding our luggage while we went to Shimla. The stairs were no different to most of the places we have stayed in India and they even upgraded us for no charge on our return. We would happily return. Noisy spot but you are on the main road near the train station so... More
