I am very disappointed with this Hotel and staff. They are extremely slow at service be it dining or any other facility. My husband and I were on a business trip and this slow service caused us precious time for our schedule. They represent government and instead being quick, they cause an embarassment. I wont come here again nor would... More

Shimla Holiday Home Hotel is also well located, near to mall road lift, ample space for parking and over all good food to eat. I have upgraded my rooms due to view which was not available in deluxe room so have to opt for super... More

Rooms are decent. Govt managed hotel. Service poor. But food quality is amazing. Never had such a tasty food anywhere. Whenever I visit shimla I prefer having lunch here. Have held business group meetings here, and those were well. Budget hotel

I stayed in this hotel for couple of days in hot summer. During hot summer, Simla is also hot and it is difficult to go out during day time. City is also big for travelling on foot and several roads including Mall Road are restricted for vehicle. Parking is also a big problem. So far hotel is concerned, it is... More

Lovd the view from the room window and how friendly the staff were. I was there for a night only but really enjoyed the good food and service. Staff were welcoming and always helpful and nice to all, view was amazing but could not sleep due to the noise. Thats only one negative aspect other than that its good

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.

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!
