Shivalik View
Ranked #17 of 107 Hotels in Chandigarh
Reviewed February 1, 2013

It has the feel of a government-owned hotel, and I believe it is. It needs money spent on it, particularly on the rooms, which are pretty basic. Mine lacked basic facilities such as a safe, for example
However there were compensations. The dinner buffet was excellent.
All in all, it is not a place one would seek out for a luxury stay. However it does the job if you want a night or so in Chandigarh

I have stayed here many times and always my experience was good. The hotel is half a kilometre away from the sector 17 bus stand. Except little slower pace at the reception rest everything was okay. Cloud 9 restaurant is very beautiful and offers great scenic views of the city beautiful. It's a bit expensive but the food here is delicious. Food served was good both in restaurant as well as one served in the room. The close proximity to sector 17 market area is a big plus point. AC control was okay. Hot water facility was also quite good .

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the sector 16 cricket stadium rather than the parade ground facing room...

I have stayed @ Shivalik View Chandigarh almost 10 times in past 5 years. Nothing has changed untill recently they decided to give it a makeover. The Hotel Lobby, Cafeteria & Restaurants have been redone but the rooms are still century old look with shabby beds & nothing in the name of ambience. The poorest part is the service where it takes ages to deliver your order, and that is because it is a govt. managed hotel & the attitude of the staff is like wise. I stayed in end December which was relatively very cold, so i asked for an extra blanket which they were unable to provide as they didn't had spare (this means you can leave your guest shivering in cold as you don't have ample arrangements). If you are sitting in a buffet & ask waiter to bring something on the table, they would harshly deny saying that "it is self service, don't you know it". Ultimately you would end up spoiling your mood & won't be able to enjoy. Bathrooms are worst, one would not want to enter. The hotel is just running because of its location & unavailability of other options in Chandigarh. Recently other properties like Park Plaza etc have come up nearby which will always be better option. I will not recommend this to anyone visiting Chandigarh.

Room Tip: Choose Room on 5th Floor which has been renovated, it will atleast make you feel little better.

I stayed in hotel Shivalik View for three days from 15-18(check out) Nov 2012.There is lot of improvement from what it was earlier/ in past.Rooms are big.Some rooms are well renovated.I stayed in one of the renovated rooms on the higher floors.Though bath Tub is to be attended/ replaced ,the bath room is clean and amenities are impressive.Service is very good.Lobby is very well renovated.Coffee house and restaurant are also well renovated.I personally didnot relish South Indian dishes served on Breakfast,Staff are hospitable.Services of house keeping,room service and reception are appreciated.BUT I have to walk down to higher floor after checkin as the lifts were out of order for more than Seven hrs.The staff were very kind enough to provide room service till the lifts are repaired.But I didnot avail that offer as atleast one lift was ready by 09.00 pm.Bell desk/ security service also was good.I am happy with my stay in this hotel.

It is one of the earlier hotels of Chandigarh,hence wears a worn out look,Tiles have scatches & furniture has a used look.Presently it is undergoing renovation & may wear a new look in future. Its USP is its location. It is at a walking distance from the most happening place of Chandigarh i.e. Sector 17 market. Hotel is spacious & doesn't wear a cramped look. Another advantage is that the price of the room includes-Breakfast & Dinner. If you are 2 people then you save a lot of money on meals. Chandigarh is not a very economical city as compared to other places of India.. Staff of the Bazm Restaurant where we had the meals , was very courteous & helpful. Even though the meals are buffet but the staff goes an extra mile to refill you on the table itself. Overall its not a bad deal until & unless you are a perfectionist & you want everything spic & span

Looks like government guest house rooms. Balcony opens, so you can step out too. Good to be on high floor. The ground floor is well renovated and so is the top floor with restaurants. The rooms are simply not in the 21st century though nothing wrong with them. No bath tub, empty mini bars, old furniture.
Roof top restaurant has good views. Try chicken talwari ( served on a sword ) and mutton martaban ( signature dish ).
Breakfast is disappointing.

Room Tip: High floor, green facing

I stayed at this hotel during my recent trip to Chandigarh. Having already stayed at the Mountview and Taj, it was by choice that i wanted to experience the Shivalik view as well. The hotel has a convenient location, clean rooms and adequate facilities. It is next door to the Sector 17 market where you can find almost everything you need. Breakfast & dinner is complimentary thus ridding you of the pain to look for alternative arrangements while you focus on work. Rooms are spacious and well stocked. Cleanliness is proper at the hotel. No complaints on service as well. Would recommend for business travelers.
