“Good stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Location of hotel is great. Rooms are average but worth as per cost. Hotel ambiance is below avarage. Hotel staff is co-operative. Room service is average.
Hotel is right on the mall road & near lift. Very good place to stay for members who are old.

I have stayed in the Samrat many times over the past 20 years, and always find it a pleasant experience. Well situated on Combermere Bridge, adjacent to the lift, it is easy to find, and is just a 5 minute walk from Christchurch and the main ridge. It has only about 20 rooms on 4 floors, all facing west, with balcony corridor access. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the downstairs restaurant serves good food, with room service, as well. The rooms are simple, and not always with all of the lights functioning, and the bathrooms are clean but basic. There is satellite TV in every room, with a good range of channels. The only negative thing about this hotel is that they invariably lock the front door by 11 pm, and waking the staff to gain access after that time, can occasionally be difficult, but if you're not planning a night on the town (which is not easy to do in Simla, anyway) , that shouldn't be a problem! The prices are very reasonable, and off-season, the management is always happy to offer a discount. For a visitor on a budget, , who still wants a comfortable stay,I can highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms face the same way and all open onto a public balcony; the lower floors involve less climbi...

We were at hotel for only one night. The room was nice, neat and clean. The location of the hotel as well as my room was on perfect side to see the night beauty of Shimla. The staff were good and helpful. Food was ok!! the room tariff was low as per the location.

Room Tip: Top rooms for better view of the city.

Only for those for whome hotel is only a place to spend night .There are no proper balconies to take a view of valley down . The owner takes advantage of location offering no amenities .Most of rooms are too small. .Bathrooms are not clean floors are old styled mosaic of cheap colour.There was a water problem in hotel on 23'rd july 2012 and management did not even arranged a bucket of water upto 9.15 in the morning One Bangali lady was very annoyed and abusing loudly in the morning for not getting any response from service staff as her departure was in the morning. ...Not worth the price they charge

Room Tip: See the bathrooms before finalising the hotel as it tells the dedication of staff towards guests

When we reached this hotel the rain was pouring down and we were all wet. Taking the advantage of the situation, the manager made us hire the room at higher expences. But we already knew the rate of the room was cheaper. We demanded for a cheaper room so they assigned us a room which was half of the size of the previous room, whose washroom was completly dirty and the water wasn't available in that room whereas it was available in the room which was costly. I had to carry a bucket full of water from the ground floor to the 4th floor myself. And I suggest to all the travellers not to stay in this dirty hotel.

Room Tip: Never ever make a mistake by visiting this hotel....................this hotel sucks.

Hotel location is very awesome.
it is on mall road near by Church
and food is tasteless.
if you will go there in may-June you will face water problem.
Room number 20 is very good you can enjoy the view from that room.
its my personal experience

Room Tip: Room number 20 is very good you can enjoy the view from that room
