“pleasent stay”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

The hotel is located on the Mall road and yet at a very good height to offer scenic views. Also the hotel terrace is quite big with panoramic view of the Shimla city. Hotel rooms are good but require up gradation in terms of upholstery, but otherwise room size is quite good. Room service and food was excellent and also the staff was quite courteous as we had 5 hours for our train...And a room was offered to us at no extra cost. We were sent a cake and fruit basket on welcome. Only the rooms need to be upgraded to make it the best stay option.

Hi!

Stayed over for 4 nights with my friends. Hotel is very near to mall road and ridge. Hotel rooms are neat and clean. Everybody enjoyed and felt like home being in this property. Hotel staff was nice and obeying, specially manager very helpful and respecful. Hotel food is reasonable and better than lots of good restaurant in shimla.

e stayed here after arriving in Simla late in the evening, on the night of Eid, to find all the hotels of the town fully booked! After an hours fruitless searching around town, we were led here by a hotel tout, and finally found a couple of rooms. Predictably expensive at 2,500/- per room per night, as the management knew that they had us over a barrel, and had no alternative; the rooms were reasonably clean, comfortable, and well appointed with small balconies (as in all of Simla, be very careful to keep the windows and door closed, or you will receive an unwanted visit from the local monkeys, who will break in and trash your room, if you give them a chance!!). The staff were fairly pleasant and helpful. There is no hotel restaurant, but they will serve meals in the room. It's about a ten to fifteen minute walk uphill from the Mall, and is in a quiet area.
Overall, it's not a bad hotel, but there are much better value establishments in Simla, and much nearer to the centre, so I wouldn't bother to stay here again, except in another dire emergency.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to be more or less the same.

I booked this hotel after going through good feedback which this hotel received on various travel websites but believe me , this is one of the worst hotel i have ever seen in my life. I am not sure why this hotel given 2 star rating and good feedbacks. All i have gone through was total fraud and worst services been offered by this hotel. Dont believe any of the offerrings of this hotel cuz none is there and you might be shocked when you stay at this hotel. From the moment of entering this hotel, it looks like 'gareeb labour' class hotel who's management is only after your money. Check out the water geyser avaialability cuz the management has hidden switches for all geysers and they will switch it off in few minutes.Rooms are dirty and smelling with stain marks on bed sheets and pilows. warm blankets are having holes in them and ridden with bugs and smelling so badly and nauseating. Rooms are dirty and nobody cares to clean them during your stay.there might be people actually sleeping on stairs and galleries and you can hear loud noises from them. beware if they provide you any room with bath tub then you can be sure that they wont allow you to fill it with warm water from the geyser.total loss for money and you will end up your hollidays in frustation and anger that you were fooled on all fronts in this hotel. again the hotel manager will force you to ake his tour package and you can be sure that it will be many folds costly then others.
I booked this hotel after seeing so many good feed backs from customers but it looks like that they are all posted by proxies and i am sure that the star rating of this hotel is suspicious as it is in no way near to even a single star , leave alone 2 stars. looks like its due to these travel site conniving with the hotel management to sell and rob this cheap and filthy hotel to the innocent customers.I booked this hotel for 4 days for my stay in shimla but i cancelled my stay in just 2 days and left this hotel as soon as posible as i can to avoid bad smell and tricksters management and also to keep myself safe from whole lot of crowd which dwell this hotel and can be seen sleeping. i only want to advise my fellow travellers so that they are not trapped and robbed the way i suffered.DONT BELIEVE ANY OF THE STAKES AND CLAIMS OF THE HOTEL AND THE WEBSITES OFFERING THIS HOTEL.DONT BE FOOLED BY SUPER DELUX OR DELUX ROOMS RATINGS CUZ THESE ARE THERE TO FOOL YOU AND WHAT YOU WILL GET IS ONLY SMELLY AND DIRTY ROOM. AND OFFCOURSE GEYSER IS CONTROLLED BY MANAGEMENT AND WILL BE SWITCHED OFF AS FEW MINUTES ONLY AND YOU HAVE TO BEG THE SERVICE GUYS OF THIS HOTEL TO SWITCH IT ON AGAIN AND AGAIN EVEN IF ITS COLD OUT THERE.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter AND DIRTIER

I stayed at the hotel for a single night and it was the worst experience during the stay. The owner of the hotel is very ill mannered and do not know how to treat with the guest. He Seems to be over clever and pretend to be very polite but after the guest check in, he shows his real face by speaking rudely and disrespectful to the hotel guest. Therefore i personally suggest people to get aware of the owner to those who have some respects in the society.

terrible! that's the word. We were forced to hole up here because we landed on a saturday night from our way back from Kalpa without a booking and the entire city was packed, and had to take up the only available "family suit" for four of us. To begin with, the loo was not cleaned since the last use and the flush wasn't working. Even after repeated requests to get the loo cleaned, it did not happen. The room was cramped and smelled musty and bad. One of us started sneezing ten minutes into the room. All the blankets were damp and smelled of fungus. The water they provided in the room was a grey muck with particles floating. We had to scream at one waiter for 15 minutes before he changed the water, but not with something of substantially better quality.
At night when we went out for dinner, we'd left the keys in the reception, and asked them to clean the loo. They did not do that, but went into our room, left couple of fresh towels and left the keys dangling from the door - with all our valuables in the room.
In the morning the balcony door was open and a monkey leaped in and sat on our bed! We had to scare him away with a stick.
The phone wasn't working either.
Most of all the staff was rude and unresponsive.
Take this hotel only if its your last resort!
And ya - the only view it offers is that of a parking space.
