Stayed in Family Suite at Hotel Kapil in Jan 2014. Had a cosy and comfortable stay.
Staff was extremely polite and helpful. Hotel arranged for all travel and excursion.
Food and Room Service were extremely good.

Just a small feedback on hot water in he family suite. The Hot water comes in the washroom after wasting lot of water and the water is also not very hot. Hotel may make arrangements to provide hot water and prevent wastage of water.

Room Tip: Family Suite or Room Facing the Valley

I booked this hotel through makemytrip as per my friends feedback.
I stayed 01 night with family at this hotel on 17th Jan 2014. The staff was very courteous & helpful.The fares of the rooms are reasonable and worth the kind satisfaction at the end of the day.
The rooms are exceptionally good. The location of the hotel was at right place where u can go to mall road with in a walk-able distance. The next day luckily we experienced heavy snowfall. To enjoy the snowfall & play this hotel is best, as u don't find any moving cars frequently that disturb the snowfall on roads. The view from hotel was amazing. u will see the whole shimla greenery & snowy when u look from your room & it depends on which room u got.They have their own travel desk which they will help you for your tour plan.
Good Things : Very nice rooms, Nice staff, Excellent food quality, Provided 24hrs hot water, Room heater etc.,
Some Improvements required : No Generator available with this hotel. During power cuts no option other than to wait for power to come. ( But generally i heared power will resume fastly
As Per my experience, 100% satisfied with this hotel and I recommend to others to stay here.

Room Tip: Backside rooms are nice to view complete shimla greenary.

It may sound odd, but I'll be honest. I went to Radisson to look for 2 nights stay, ended up in Kapil hotel. The rooms are modern, especially the suite. When I compared the room quality, though Radisson was ofcourse 5 star quality, Kapil hotel rooms looked modern, safe & clean (with good washrooms). Kapil hotel looked a much better Value for money package. I dont regret my decision. It was true value for money. I got quality rooms & ended up saving money too :)

Our two days of stay at Kapil was an excellent and memorable one. The room and bathroom were clean and had good amenities associated. Room service and the food quality are also worth mentioning. The checkout time was 12. But, they were kind enough to offer us another empty room to freshen up for our late evening bus.
The only problem could be the lack of a common eating place so that we had to have food in our room itself.
In general, we really enjoyed the stay and all five stars to them.
