Rooms are basic, standard ones being quite small, with TV, geyser and clean sheets. Our room had an ac too. They have a restaurant at ground floor or you can... More

If someone stays here for more than 24 hours , he/she might get severe health issues after the stay.... More

Quite close to the Kalka Railway Station-aound 5 minutes walk from the hotel. Staff were quite attentive and helpful. Average quality hotel, but it serves the purpose (Majority of visitors were travelling by the Toy train to Shimla). You have to mind your step when climbing tha stair case-steps were quite steep!

I asked to wake us at 5 am, but they called at 4:30. We leaved at 5:30, and reception was closed, but stairs to room was open... More
