“Lovely hotel - nothing too much trouble for the staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

I disagre with Kamal1's review - this is a lovely hotel. You get what you pay for and the staff couldn't do enough for me and my partner when we stayed there for 5 nights in April 2011 (sorry, i have put March 2012 because there isn't an option for dates further that this). The room was clean and the food, which we mostly had sent up to the room was very tasty and hot. It only took half an hour to reach the Ridge. On the day we departed, my partner had booked a taxi to take us to the bus station the night before and the driver didnt turn up. The reception staff made a quick phone call and within minutes a driver was waiting outside the hotel and we caught the coach back to Delhi. I can't rate this hotel highly enough really - it leaves me with lots of wonderful memories of Shimla and we will be returning again this year.

We stayed for a night while returning from Spiti Valley in March 2010.
This was an average hotel with average prices.
Rooms: Basic, clean and decently furnished
Food: Excellent
Location: One of the best features. It is located near the Vidhan Sabha and Cecil Oberoi. Away from the main hustle bustle of the city. But at a walking distance to all attractions.
Parking: which is a major problem in the entire city, has been handled pretty well.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear and low level look to the retaining wall. Try rooms at higher level and towards th...

Hotel harsha is one of the worst hotel ,i have every visited in my whole life. Very poor and misguiding reception staff , poor food , very very expensive , false commitments...it takes 1 hr to reach Ridge by foot. I paid more then 4000 for 1 room and had terrible experience.I advice all reader never ever think of staying in this pethatic hotel.
