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.

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... More

As Hotel Lotus was not having warm water they arranged a semi-demux room in Rose Hotel. This room was closed without ventilation for AC only. But no AC was there. So it was a suffocating experience. I thank the room quality was good.
