The front office staff offered us few packages instead of a room for which we were looking. He showed us a list of places which were included in the package. We... More

This small hotel is well located in Shimla. Service is good. One can get a good view of hills on the roof top. Food is so so. Outside of rooms not very clean. But rooms are good. services were good. But one has to walk from the hotel a bit as cab does not reach the hotel front.

As soon as we get down at Shimla railway station some agents were behind us telling that they will show some good budget hotels. we were trapped by that guy &... More
