“" REASONABLE PRICE FOR AN HOMELY STAY "”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

First thing that comes to my mind during my stay of approx. 2 months in Hotel Sansar is the civilic behaviour of both the owners Nishant ji and Vikas ji. Its important here to mention the name of the person working day and night with a smile to serve you with all your needs and that is Sunil. I have never faced any sort of Intricacy regarding food, hygiene (ROOM AND WASHROOM) or Service during my long stay. I found the taxi rate for sight seeing that was provided by the hotel was very much reasonable. The hotel is located ner to high court and from mall its just 7 minutes walk .

Homely Food, Good Service, Gentle behaviour, Reasonable Pricing, Suitable Location makes the stay memorable in Hotel Sansar……

I Truly enjoyed my stay and I am sure everyone will have the same experience in hotel Sansar....

Room Tip: Book in advance

we booked this hotel thru a website and rooms were shown were looking nice.we paid all in advance and when we arrived simla nobody was there to take care of us .we reached near hotel by own efforts and as we entered in hotel we realise how some hotel can cheat tourist .room provide to us was ordinary with no service .from balcony a lot of garbage and waste could seen.
we booked room for two days but next day hotel people asked to change our room and provide very ordinary room right in last corner of gallery where no light in night and lots of insects were there,
we never advice to stay in this type of hotel sfter paying 2500 per day in advance.

Room Tip: only few rooms having comfort

The location of hotel is good but condition of interior is poor .The toilet is stinking and taps are broken. The food in menu is limited.Overall the rating of hotel is very poor.It is advisable not to book room in hotel .It is merely the wastage of money

This is a budget hotel, but at a decent location, just at the lower end of the mall road. You would need to walk up a bit to get to the ridge. there was only one person at the reception doing all the service chores. All the time running here and there, and sometimes hard to find.
If you are very particular and looking for quality in small things, then this is not for you. However, if you have just come to enjoy Shimla, and do not care too much on staying comfort then this is it. The rooms are neat, bathroom clean, beds just ok. There are not too many good things to say about the hotel, neither too many bad things. So, it is just a so so type. If you do not keep high expectation, only then go for this.

Room Tip: go for rooms that have a balcony

This hotel has clean spacious rooms at very reasonable prices for Shimla. 5 minutes walk to the end of the Mall. Bear in mind the hotel is on a road that cannot be accessed by vehicles. A taxi will drop you a 2mins walk up and over a crest in the road.
The view is about to change however. We visited in March and another hotel is being constructed (in classic Shimla fashion) directly in front which will soon block the view entirely. Still, there are viewpoints really nearby so this would still be a great budget option!

This is a budget hotel to its core with limited facilities. Pros: Budget Hotel, close to Mall Road and located right adjacent to the High Court. Average room size with clean Bedspreads and decent toilets, good hot water facility .Cons: No Internet, No room heaters (very difficult in the nights),Limited Food menu and an average service time.
The only annoying thing about this hotel is that most of the times there is no one there at the reception.
I would rate this hotel 3 on a scale of 5. More attenders and room heaters should easily help this hotel score more points

We came to shimla by toy train on 18th April 2012.
we had booked one three bed room in hotel sansar.hotel was about 1 km
from the railway station and the hotel manager sent a taxi (charges paid)
to pick us up from the station. The room was okay according to the charges paid
and it had a balcony. The food was limited in its variety but it tasted good.
The best thing about the hotel is that it is very near to the mall road but at the
same time it is isolated from the hustle and bustle of the city.
It was a good experience to stay in hotel sansar keeping in mind that we were
on a shoe string budget.

Room Tip: three bedded room is quite spacious
