“Very Good Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

I went to this hotel on 19th May 2014 in morning and to my surprise what all review I have read for this hotel was drastic but it was not like that
1. Reception along with the Reception People were great
2. Amenities like Bed, Cleanliness Bed LED 32inch TV was too good
3. Food Quality was ok ok but Parathas were great
4. It was easily accessible from Mall Road, Lift, Christ Church, Ridge, Scandal Point

Room Tip: All Rooms are good but do ask them for Room No 12 or 14 as they are great

Even for the price we paid the hotel had very small rooms and zero amenities. The staff was quite unprofessional and the room services quite crappy. The ordered food did come in some time, but even for something like water a lot of reminders were required.
Rooms so small that you need to keep the luggage quite judiciously so as to be able to walk around. Bathrooms are below average - but luckily for us there was no water problem as mentioned in other reviews.

The only advantage of this hotel is that it's very close to the lift, so saves carrying the stuff on back on an uphill (if you have to stay on Mall Road). We hardly stayed in the rooms except for the sleeping at nights as walking in the market was a much better option. It was kind of an off-season so we managed to bargain at Rs 2300 for 2 nights. Probably anything higher would not have been justified either!

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors have a better sunset view.

The most fraud hotel in shimla. On 12th apr14 I was there for my hooney moon.Took super delux room by paid rs 2500per night. Bt the room condition was very bad, and also provide us room in the forth floor. After many request the manager did not change the room. The room was wooden flrooring but the every corner of the room was dam and filled with fungas.

Room Tip: never booked this room for your trip

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
