The best in the budget hotel. we have booked this hotel after a long research on Tripadvisor with travel guru. Booked 2 super deluxe room. nice and spacious rooms with all the amenities. Very nice service but not 24hrs. Food was excellent. I am also a hotelier and having a working experience in 5 star hotels, i recommend the best budget hotel which is hardly 0.5 KM from The Mall Road. The Chaman Palace make our trip the memorable one. Thanks to the staff and the owner of the Hotel. We will recommend to the others about the same.***** stars to you guys. Keep it up

The hotel is nice. Only the location is a bit issue but can be managed. All the places are nearby. Thats an advantage.
food is always the USP of this hotel. everything is delicious.The only drawback is that rooms don't have sunlight touch which makes them a bit humid.

We booked Raja Rani Tour for 29 Jun 2012 and 30 Jun 2012, we reached shimla at 7AM and reached hotel at 8 AM , our check-in time was 12 , but the Hotel Staff was very very nice and they let us rest in another room till 12 , so that after 12 our check-in could be done in raja rani suite.
Room was overall good, Room service and personal were excellent.
We had Hot water and clean rooms in the hotel,
I would like to appreciate the Cook , who make super hot and delicious gobhi paratha's and we both enjoyed it.
Hotel staff was truly wonderful.
Only thing that was BAD was The TOUR SERVICE OFFERED BY A THIRD PARTY PERSON INSIDE THE HOTEL COMPLEX, Who is a COMPLETE" FRAUD PERSON AND A CHEAT PERSON", He Charged 4TIMES The Tour Cost and Showed US NOTHING AT ALL
To ADD to This when my WIFE Told him that HE is a Cheat then HE STARTED ARGUING AND MISBEHAVING.
****BUT THANKS TO THE HOTEL MANAGER, THAT HE COMPENSATED THE AMOUNT CHARGED AND APOLOGIZED ON HIS BEHALF*******

SO AS A HOTEL ITS VERY GOOD BUT HAS PATHETIC TOUR SERVICE

Room Tip: Raja Rani is the BEST

This place is an absolute dump. It is very difficult to find tucked away behind several back alleys which are unreachable by car or taxi. When I booked it the description promised "city views" but the only view I had was of the shrivelled up pot plants in the alley outside. There is no heater and the hot water takes 30mins to warm up and it only lasts for a very short time even then. There is no soundproofing, you can hear every noise from every other room as well as all the noise from the street. There is wifi available but it is unreliable. The blankets were warm enough but pretty filthy, the bed was very uncomfortable and pillows were no good. I booked for 3 nights and the only reason I didn't leave straight away was because the location was so inconvenient it would have been too much trouble to walk with my large backpack to find somewhere else to stay. I don't know what these other people are smoking who have given this place good reviews but I find it hard to believe anyone could stay here and have a good time. I had to walk 200 metres up the road just to get a bottle of water because the hotel doesn't provide any.

The hotel is just under the Kalibari at Mall Road. We were offered a suit for 4 adults and 2 children only for Rs 750/- which I felt a good bet in the month of April. The rooms were big (enough big) and carpeted (clean carpet). The only problem in that room was the number of the bathroom, only one for 2 rooms. But the bathroom was clean and good.This is a budget property but the staffs are very cordial and the owner/Manager gave us a car-lift from the bus-stand at the time of check-in. They arranged a 1-day tour around Shimla with a very competitive rate. Perhaps, the hotel has some contract with some companies for Holiday Homes at cheaper rates, which can be booked from Kolkata. Bengalis can have their lunch/dinner at Kalibari (If they wish), which is just 5 mins walk from the hotel. North-Indian breakfast can be found near the chowk, just beneath the Mall Road. Any car was not allowed near the hotel after 8 AM as per the civic policy. This is the only problem of the location. But I hardly experienced any problem to reach at Shimla Station with my family, thanks to the trolley bags. Anyway, The hotel is a good budget one.

Room Tip: Be aware of Monkeys. Don't keep the windows open. I took the suit no. 205.

We knew from the offset that this was a "budget hotel" however, the standard is well below that of any budget hotel in the UK.

We'd booked to stay for 2 days expecting something on par with a Travelodge or Premier Inn. We checked checked out after just 40 minutes.

The rooms were run down, dirty and tired. The hotel was difficult to get to and had all the charm of hemeroids. There were virtually no amenities, unless you count the pair of rubber reusable croc style slippers, shared by all the previous guests.

Our bed sheet (yes - singular) had clearly been washed - we know this as they it was still damp - but didn't look clean. There was no top sheet - you're expected to use a woolly blanket, which had clearly not washed from the offset. I felt dirty and uncomfortable from the moment I arrived and would rather have pitched a tent outside.

My advice, pay a little more, because this is "student digs" at best. Even then, you'd have to be a pretty unfussy student.
