We had stayed in the hotel long back with very good memories and returned to dine at its family restaurant which is open to outsiders as well. The food served is very fresh, delicious and best part very economical.

Its a good hotel with good services. I stayed here from 11 - 15 Aug 2016. Not easy with family to go to lift from here, but can can be arranged at modest rate. Very good food and good rooms with LED TV and good cable connection which is required with children. Toilets were clean and had hot water, xtra... More

I had a short night stay in this place...it was good as I checked in at around 1 in the night and found that staff was still with full of curtsy and warmth...Place is owned by Himachal Government and surprisingly well maintained! Restaurant is classy and serve delicious food...a good option if you're planning visit to Shimla!

We have been coming here since 1989 when I had witnessed my first snowfall as a kid. Remains a popular choice and has expanded over the years. Bang in the middle of Shimla with great views from rooms facing the mall. Parking is ample n safe, an added point. Food is nice and though staff members are slightly old, they... More

After contacting almost every hotel in Shimla for the extended weekend (Holi) - this was our last resort and it did not disappoint overall. We chose the Shimla Suite (biggest room?) with an extra adult occupancy. The room size was adequate for 03 adults. We ordered food from the room service menu quite a few times - it was good... More

Here are the pros - super food, fast room service, parking (which is a nightmare in most hotels in Shimla), close to the lift to Mall Road. Although not opulent,... More

this is a govt. department and staff is govt employee, so they behave like one, no point asking for anything, spare the bar men, if you are looking for some luxary and comfort dont even think of this.

Our stay at this hotel gave mixed feelings as we found our room to be quite small & it was a bit old fashioned as most of the Govt. hotels are..it never matched the price charged by them for room as well as the extra bed we asked them for..Only appreciable thing we found was courteous staff who served us...
