We have just had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Kapil. We treated ourselves to the penthouse which was worth it because we had a balcony which we could sit out on & enjoy the views across the valley. All of the staff were very helpful & personable & made sure our stay was enjoyable.

This is a budget hotel but rooms are equipped with everything from clean linens to toiletries. Room size is little small but furniture is fitted very well and give us good overall feel. There's no lobby or dine... More

The hotel is quite comfortable and close to the Mall Road. The staff is friendly and helpful. They offer pick up and drop service upto a certain point during fixed hours, which makes travelling around easier. A good stay!

We booked this hotel for our weekend stay in Aug 2016 by directly calling them. Booking was smooth and manager was very polite. It is a nice, small hotel away from Shimla's traffic and crowd. Only one small car can be park at hotel, but they arrange it on request. Now to real surprise for us was the delicious food... More
