“The Glam Hotel Surya of Shimla city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2010

Hotel Surya,I was there in the last year of october while travelling to Shimla & Manali.It's such a great Hotel situated near Shimla Station(Shibalik Train) & about 5mins from there.It's a Big Hotel i think & great atmosphere u can feel while traveling. The great nature can be viewed from the Hotel Room & all the Rooms are well arranged & Decorated.I was there with my friend last year for 3days & i Experienced some great feelings there.I Wanna Recommend all peoples who want to go shimla anyway,please stay in that Hotel.It such a Good Hotel.All the Arrangement can help you to provide the best travel experience. Good Elevation,Good Atmosphere,Good near Distance from all the attraction of shimla & rest of the part you will know when you will be there. I must say YES for the Hotel Surya.that's all.

This is a normal hotel, with all basic facility. The rooms were mid size but clean and tidy. The reception check in was bit slow. The location is very convinient, heart of the city near to bus stand. The food was good and reasnable. The room service was till 10.30 PM. The rooms rate are reasonable and very afortable. The property is nocely decorated and well maintained. The rooms were haveing heaters. Nice hotel for low cost traveller.

We stayed at the Hotel Surya for only one night and had a horrible experience. When we checked in we were told that the honeymoon suites had hot water and heat would be available for our infant son's comfort. They forgot to mention that the hot water is turned off from 11 PM to 6 AM, and that the portable heater will overload the electrical circuit, thus not having heat and having to go outside the room to reset the breakers. Also the other electrical issue was that the lamp next to the bed did not have a three prong plug so that hotel staff directly plugged the wires into the electrical socket..BIG SAFETY and FIRE HAZARD. Needless to say, despite how inexpensive the hotel maybe, it is not worth it. Especal;ly with an infant who needs the comforts.

I visited Shimla for my honeymoon and this hotel was a part of package booked by my agent based in Bhopal. The room was okay, but could not be said value for money i spent on my honeymoon, i stayed here for two nights and visited kufri only. The toy train boarded from Kalka to Shimla was the most exciting part of the honeymoon. The hotel was unorganised and irresponsible staff who did not feel and or fulfill my expectations in terms of quality of services. I asked them for some flower arrangements but they couldnot. There were disturbances in night at room someone ringing the bell and lot of noise because people used to move to 10th floor for moving to Mall road. The lift stopped either before our desired floor or did stop at 10th floor, so annoying. When the hotel staff is complained about the happenings, they were silent to these happenings. The room service was okay but food was not good, we could have tried some restaurant outside. Overall since it was my honeymoon i have good memories for there as well.
