“Nice Location, Within budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

There can't be a better place , location wise, budget wise. Hotel White is close to the Ridge, Mall road, Lakkar Bazar. The staff is nice, rooms spacious,neat and clean.
Take a room with spacious balcony and enjoy the cool winds, mountain view. A perfect place to spend time with your family. For last 7 years have been going to Shimla in May/June and never ever thought of changing the hotel.
Mr.Thakur, the manager is cooperative, the staff never ever disturbs you.
You need to book in advance to get a room of your choice.

Room Tip: Look for rooms with Balcony attached, or with open space in front.

It is an average property. Property is not well maintained. Room interior is too poor. Bathroom and room interior seems like a hostel. Also, it is located at height and in such a place that, car can't go till there. You will need to carry your luggage through staircase and a quite long way or hire local coolie.

Stayed there for 5 days with 2 other family members ............. Hotel White can be referred for its great location ...right on lakkar bazar .U have ridge, mall within 10 mins walking distance only. Manager Mr.Surender Thakur is helpful and a very nice person. Room service is good ......Breakfast ,snacks and tea is readily served, but they could have an in house restaurant for lunch and dinner..............but u get food readily in lakkar bazar just outside hotel.The room (room no.10) in which we stayed had great view of the valley and far reaching slow clad mountains .......Peaceful, no distaurbance type of hotel...clean with running hot water. Surely can be advised to anyone visting Shimla.Budget wise also pocket friendly .....

Room Tip: Room No.10, although is a at lower height in hotel ...and u have to climb up nearly 40 stairs to get...

Stayed for one night. I don't know what was going on but there was a high frequency buzzing sound all night long. I thought I was having a tinnitus attack. Stayed on the ground floor. Of course no one bothered to smile the whole time I was there. I hate it when hotel staff treat you like they are doing you a favour by giving you a room you are paying for!!! Room was alright . The bathroom was very clean. Locations good. 5 min walk to the mall. One added bonus is that they have place to park a bike behind a locked gate.

Pros :
Walking distance from the Mall road.
walking distance but still away from noise.
everyone seems to know the location of this hotel
clean and simple rooms with basic but prompt room service.
big balcony with breathtaking view (room booked at reception level)

over all a good memorable stay at the hotel. Hotel manager Surender was also very helpful.

Room Tip: Take rooms at reception level.

I would like to begin by mentioning that the our trip to Shimla was made memorable by virtue of our stay at Hotel White.
First off, its a name most taxi wallahs and bus drivers recognise, this is a big plus.
We had booked in advance and paid for a couple of days in advance too. Upon reaching the hotel we were shown into a nice and cozy room. However my better half wanted another room with a better view which was provided immediately. The rooms are cheerful, bright and have very clean bathrooms and 24 hours of running hot water. The hotel is very peaceful and views of the valley are marvellous; the staff are very courteous and well mannered. The manager Mr. Surender Thakur is a perfect gentleman and provided us with tips and suggestions that helped us plan our side trips and tours.
The breakfast and snacks are quite palatable and are served hot, this was a big bonus during our trip since it was in the last week of November 2013.
The hotel is very conveniently located and a couple of minutes walk to the Mall which is the heart of Shimla.
We left very satisfied and would happily stay there again when we visit.
Highly recommended for families and couples.
Bottomline - a nice value for money hotel for budget travellers, well mannered staff and very helpful hotel Manager.

Hotel white is 5mins away from the mall area. Large spacious room with a lovely balcony overlooking the valley... the service was friendly and warm.
Fairly priced, centrally located, clean and tidy, smiling faces .... what more does I need in a serene place like shimla!!
