If you plan to visit Shimla then this is the best where you should be. The hotel is just so perfect. 10-15 mins walk from the mall and they have complementary drop and pick up service half way. From reception, room service, housekeeping, travel desk to restaurant you will feel getting pampered. Thanks to each and every staff of the... More

I have just stayed in the penthouse for 2 nights. The room was very comfortable with a large double bed and a single in the lounge area with wonderful views from the balcony. The weather was a bit chilly but there was an electric blanket and we were able to hire a room heater for 300 rupees a night. We... More

Rooms with views are worth the extra, but other rooms are fine. Staff very friendly. No restaurant and no kettle in rooms, however room service is provided (which apparently is very good). Hotel Radisson is a few minutes stroll down the road, and provide good service for a reasonable European price. The centre of Shimla is a pleasant, if uphill... More

Highly recommended for an amazing service from all the staff. Even though the hotel is small, it has a very homely feeling. We had a super deluxe room which was amazing. Very clean, good wifi speed. We arrived on early bus and were given a room for early check in. Even though there is no restaurant, the food we ordered... More

The Hotel is about 200m from the Lakkar bazar in Shimla Mall road. Not a big hotel, expected to be an averaged sized for Shimla. I used only the "ROOM" + the WiFi as part of the deal. There is no common pantry / restaurant where we can have breakfast or dinner. Only room service exists - this is bad... More

The backbone of Shimla is The Ridge and Mall Road and the hotel Kapil is a brisk 10 minute or so walk down from these areas. It is also a few minutes away and slightly higher up from the Raddison hotel. We stayed four nights in the penthouse which was an excellent choice: a sufficiently large bedroom with sitting-room attached... More

Great staff. No bar or restaurant but great value and very clean by Indian standards. It's a bit of a walk uphil to the ridge and mall road area but not a problem unless you have a mobility issue. 250 rupee taxi ride to the station. We paid a little extra and had a room with a super view. Shimla... More
