I have spent 10 weeks travelling in India and this is one of the best places we have stayed both in terms of value and hospitality. The guesthouse is situated roughly 6km south of Shimla where the views are fantastic. Our room was south facing and the views during the morning sun were particularly beautiful. The room was spacious with...

Lovely home stay. Shiv is a character, most helpful. Shimla is beautiful. Food at the home stay was delicious but dinner was overpriced (however, take away options available). Would stay again. Thank you

Value for money, Shivi will be your host, guide , friend and more in shimla. Great food and support staff, will come again. Great view in family room with balcony. Will visit again. Some points to note: A bit far from city, you end up paying for taxi. Other than that when you pay 5k in off season for the...

I have been in Shimla before, but this time I was there for a complete relaxation prior to join a new job and I could think of none but a hill station nearby for such rejuvenation, but a hotel with a great hill view was must for me. After a thorough research on internet I finally chose Aapo App Home...

We had a very nice stay at Aapo. The host is a REAL HOST. Friendly and always there when you have a question or you need something. Room was very big and very clean. Nice shower with warm water. Very special view over the valley and the mountains. Everything was okay and fine. We enjoyed it very much.

After a long and rather trecherous journey into Shimla we were in low spirits when we got into the cab on the way to Aapo Aap. However as soon as we walked through the front door, we were welcomed and felt instantly at home in Shivi's beautiful home. The host made every effort to make us comfortable and looked after....
