gud thing about the hotel is that it is just beside the Lift to the Mall Road. Visited this hostel during May 2013. Rooms were over priced. but that is the case with all other hotels during that period.
Hotel staffs were not sufficient in number and we had to wait for a long time for room service after placing order, even just for a pot of tea. The staff gets active only after 7:00 am. However, the staff is polite and the food was good.
We stayed in Executive room which was just sufficient for two persons. Bathroom was kept tidy and hot water available all the time which was one of the few good things about the hotel.
The whole ambiance was cramped up (the entrance, the rooms, the reception area, the restaurant, lobby, hall way). Rooms were not ventilated properly and there was no fan or AC in executive room.
Fine hotel if your trip is with friends.
If you are willing to spend and are not getting good hotel rooms for stay in Shimla near Mall Road, it is rather better to book a good hotel in the outskirts of Shimla.
