Hotel Firhill is good location in Shimla. Room is very Good. Food quality is also good. The rooms have to be renovated to current standards. But better stay at Chail an extra mile to make your stay comfortable.

We stayed at Hotel Firhill during last week of October 2014. The property is located on the main road ( Cart Road) and hence provides easy connectivity to all parts of Shimla and around. The Mall is 20 minutes walk away. The walk to the Mall, through the foot path up the stairs of 103 tunnel, is quite scenic and...
