“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This hotel is highly recommended for travellers who are looking for a good accommodation at an affordable price. The delux room that we got was having a great view of the valley. The wooden furnitures had an old world charm. However it also had all the basic modern requirements. The hotel staff were courteous and helpful.

Kapil Hotel is a place managed with a wish of serving guests, it appears from their every act.. smiling faces of staff member will give you a happy feeling each time you come in or go outside... this is a small property.. but any how all facilities they are mentioning on website and other platform are true...its near mall road, they drop guests till lakkar bazar by a very neat Nano... food are good..rose with morning breakfast gives a awesome feeling..

Staying in a super deluxe room of hotil kapil was a treat we stayed from july 5 - 8 and our stay was awesome . The food of the hotel is really awesome and one can eat anything from Tawa Chicken to Pizza or . The food is served hot and presentation was excellent for every item. Each and every staff greeted us with smile. If any one need to book this hotel book for Super Deluxe or above room.They have small nano car :) for pick up and drop to lakkar bazzar next to mall road . So it helps :)

Thanks Kapil and whenever I will come to Shimla I will be staying in Hotel Kapil for sure.

Room Tip: super Deluxe room and above

We stayed there for 2 night in March 2014 in Deluxe Suite. The room was spacious, clean and really cozy. It had a good view of the valley and beauty of Shimla. But the best part about this hotel was its service. Every time we went in/out we were greeted with a smile. They don't have restaurant and serve food only in the rooms. Not only they serve food hot, they also ensure that it remains hot. I remember their staff checking in on our food and offering to reheat themselves even after their serving hours i.e 10 PM.

I would advise it for people who want a quite, small place with good service.

Room Tip: Pick only Suites, other rooms are really small

We stayed here for 3nights 4 days and were pleasantly surprised at the level of hospitality offered and the cleanliness of the rooms. Food quality was great. The hotel staff was very courteous and guided us for all the tours and planned it out for us. Would definitely recommend it.

Excellent hotel and exceptional service.very close to mall road however need to climb some 50 odd steps to reach.They also provide complimentary drop till stairs. Everything is very transparent and given on their website.NO HIDDEN INFORMATION. And thats what I liked about the hotel.Better than expected.Excellent food . No need to go anywhere for food. Only thing which troubled us was a stink in the bathroom.they tried to do the needful by spraying room freshener but to no avail. All in all good hotel....

Room Tip: Check rooms before chk in. First floor rooms..

The view from this hotel is amazing. We stayed here from 25-28 June and had a great stay. The hotel provided us with a complimentary cake at our check-in as we were on our honeymoon. The staff was quick to respond to our needs. We stayed in a Super Deluxe room. This hotel provides transport at very reasonable rates, so don't hesitate to book your sightseeing tours through this hotel.
This hotel does not have a restaurant, so food will be served in the room. The quality of food is good. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
