This Hotel is the best in Shimla to stay and go around. The Hotel is almost 10 mins walking from the Mall Lift. The Hotel has its own restaurant with all good food and hygienic facilities. People need to stay to have the experience.

Hotel Holiday Home is a decent hotel which offers a comfortable stay and situated at 10 minutes walking distance from lift. We stayed during Christmas vacations. Being a government managed property, this hotel lacks in few services e.g. regular room cleaning, toiletry replacement, bed sheet change etc. does not happen implicitly. But, I am sure if you will ask for...

It's not near mall , though it takes a 10 -15 minutes walk to the lift for mall. And the road is little bit problematic for elderly...

This hotel charges 10% luxury tax and 9% service tax. Total = 19%. On top of it, if you order food in room they charge 15% extra on food as room service charges. Considering they already levy service tax, it is tax applied twice. Don't get fooled by room rent displayed on their website. Multiply it by 1.25. Toilet was...

Stayed for two nights. The staff at the reception were very courteous and nice. Rooms were well maintained and clean. Service was also very good. The only disadvantage was a lack of lift/elevator in the building where we stayed. Had to go up and down two floors by the staircase everytime. I think installation of a lift will go a...
