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.

We stayed at the lotus close to the railway station for our toy train early morning departure. The hotel is average and will meet basic requirements for a night's rest before the journey the following day. The room was okay and bathroom was clean. The blankets and towels tell a different story so we didnt quite use them during our... More

The best thing about this hotel is the hospitality. The room is very basic with hot water, but low quality furniture and thin blankets. Autos charge 50rs to this hotel which is just 250m away from station. Can't blame them for making money in chilling weather though. But, the hotel served my purpose of overnight stay to catch the kalka-shimla... More
