We booked the hotel because of positive feedback we received from some of our friends who had stayed there some time back. The room was quite big and spacious and a sofa set was also provided. The room was carpeted but there was a foul smell enmating from the carpet. When we brought this to the notice of the staff, they simply said that it was due to the heavy rains which had lashed the city some days back.
One thing which I found unique about this hotel was that we had to climb to the top floor of the hotel and had to exit from a narrow passage which led to the Mall road, the most famous street of Shimla. Similarly while returning back we had to use the top floor entrance.
The food was good and the room service was fine. The staff was prompt on call and never had we to wait to get things done. The staff was cheerful too, they promptly arranged local transport to allow us to explore the surrounding places like Kufri, Naldhera, Chail, etc.
I would recommend this hotel to guests, however they should not have too much of expectations but you can be assured of a good sleep at night.
