“OK hotel for location/Price”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

I stayed here with another traveller friend I picked up and it's ok. If you want somewhere cheap with breakfast then this is your place. The bathrooms are super super clean and you get hot water from i think it is 7pm to 10am. The breakfast is ok. The rooms could do with being aired out and a good scrub and lick of paint. Basically refurbished. It does smell damp but then again, as said if you are paying 300 rupees each - what do you expect??

Also know as the Satkar Hotel, this was the hotel with the worst standards that we stayed in during our trip to India. Though it was also the cheapest, but not by much, at around 600 rupees/night. The worst thing about the rooms was the smell, which was a mixture of damp and sewage and something else that we couldn’t identify and was borderline unbearable, we’d only booked for 2 nights, but had it been longer we would have looked for an alternative. The smell was made worse by the fact that we couldn’t open the windows due to the monkeys. The rooms were also small and not particularly clean. The carpet was dirty and permanently wet. The service was also poor. Be warned, when we arrived the man at reception tried to get us to pay more than the online price, we refused to do so.
This hotel is YHA accredited. However do not go there expecting a sociable youth hostel atmosphere. A depressing place, best avoided!

Pretty good budget value for somewhere as expensive as Shimla. Great location and very helpful organised staff. Our room was comfortable and although we had a shared bathroom it was probably the cleanest we had during our 6 week trip. Price includes a very good breakfast as well. Highly recommended.

Its was good and value for money, no frills and no hi-fi stuffs but good and tidy. Had to stay because of non-availability in other hotels in shimla due to peak season. It is good option for people who just need a place to sleep at night.
