“Fair Price good hotel in Shimla”
Reviewed March 18, 2010

The Hotel is situated in Lower Shimla - which means that you do not have to walk /climb much form the Shimla Railway Station in case you come by the Kalka Shimla narrow gauge train. You get favoulous price discount in off season, you may even get a broker/tou escorting you to the hotel from the railway station. Book a room in the front the view is good. However you have to climb / walk a lot if you want to visit the Ridge. the Mall or the kalibari.

In June 09 end, we have decided go for a vacation to a hill station, we have selected Shimla. We have booked transportation well in advance, and thought of book hotel when we reach Shimla.

A day before journey, think that what will happen if we didn’t get proper accommodation, hence we decided to book online. So looked for some of the hotels, but almost full, at last got Hotel Victory, which had some rooms left. We have booked online with one of the website, but in back of mind had fear @ the hotel quality and location and I hadn’t been to Shimla earlier.

Anyway, we had traveled to Shimla by train, and hire a Porter to reach hotel as we have luggage, else the hotel is just ½ to 1 KM away from station as mentioned in the advertisement. On checking in we got keys and reach to room. The rates we have got was Rs. 1600 per day (in June which is heavy season for hill station), with 25 % cash back for online booking, so effectively, Rs. 1200 per day, with taxes.

The view for hotel is quite clear and we can say greenery as well as hills. The mall road is @ 1 km away walking distance.

Hotel has a taxi service for local sight seen and to Kufri which is at reasonable charges.

We have tried food, we found it quite tasty compared to other restaurant at Shimla, and also rates are quite comparable.

On last day, checkout at 12 noon, but our bus to Delhi is in evening, so we requested to keep our luggage in lock room and hotel manager agreed. In evening, We found our luggage safely returned to us.

Overall, the hotel is good, and we may go there again if we end up to Shimla sometime in future.

  • Liked — Its distance to famous places - mall road, Railway station, Bus Station
  • Disliked — Cleanliness was OK, but can be improved.
