It was pleasant stay at The Lotus. We have to catch Toy Train to Shimla in the early morning and Kalka is a break journey. You could opt this hotel for an overnight stay. Got some decent food options nearby. Positive: Near to Railway Station (0.5 KM away) Availability of Hot Water. Negative: Steep Steps. Host: Saurabh was very helpful.

What a great little hotel. I stayed here for 3 night's on my way to Shimla. It's a good place to stay for a break. I received a great deal on a deluxe room on the 2nd floor. The stairs are steep but you just need to take a bit of care. The room was good with everything I needed,...

The hotel is located on the main road, close to the railway station. This is ideal for people who arrive at night in the Delhi Shatabdi and plan to catch an early morning train or car to Shimla. The manager contacted us when we were in the train and arranged for an auto pick up even after 11 pm as...

Decent and cheap hotel near to the railway station. It is just 200 meters or a 5 minute walk. If you have lots of bags or elderly with you, then take a cab for Rs 100 to drop you to the hotel. I was with 6 people and we booked an Innova for Rs 100. About the Hotel ---------------------------- Its...

We stayed in this hotel for few hours-just to catch the midnight train. The hotel has very narrow stairs, small room not enough cleaned and just ok bathroom. The only pros is-the proximity to kalka staion. The food and service is sub-standard. So this can be used only for a very short stay.

We stayed here at night to catch the early morning Kalka-shimla toy train. This is an average budget hotel. Don't expect anything great. Staircase is very steep, so it will be difficult for older people. Room was little bit dusty and toilet was average clean. It is situated very near to Kalka railway station. Owner arranged an auto for pick-up...
