“Value for Money”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

The hotel is great especially for business travelers who just need a place to crash in the evening. You actually cant ask for a better location in Shimla and that too at this price. Right in the middle of town. Every other place is going to be just walking distance. Every room has a fantastic view of the mountains. & Don't forget to visit the New Inhouse Bar!
You Dont need a GYM- Just go for a jog on the Mall/Ridge/Forest Road and enjoy the morning air.
Shimla hotels don't have pools, You gotta be a fool to even look for one;)
Most Important- Its a SAFE place to be in.

The best thing about the hotel was the location. Right near to the Lift, it was convenient to travel around Shimla and come back to our room. The service was good, the rooms were spacious and well-maintained. All in all, the trip was memorable.

“We had a lovely stay in "Hotel Samrat SS", Near Tourism Lift, Mall Road,Shimla. The hotel facilities were fine, bedrooms were spacious and well equipped and the atmosphere in “VIVA” Restaurant and Bar was convivial. Every member of staff we met was helpful, pleasant and welcoming. Added to all that was the great view, with excellent food! We would definitely recommend “HOTEL SAMRAT SS”, Shimla for memorable, safe and pleasant stay”.
Hotel Samrat SS with “VIVA” Res-O-Bar is a place you would definitely come back to and recommend to your friends. Thank you very much for making our stay so pleasant!!!

We stayed at “Smart SS” for 4 nights recently and have a memorable holiday. It is situated at fantastic location at Mall Road with walking distance at Ridge with great views. Rooms are well furnished and decorated. The service was absolutely fantastic. Staffs are very friendly and excellent. The food was great, especially lunch/dinner with a wide variety of choices and is up to the mark…... Highly recommended and will definitely go there again when we will be in Shimla.

The hotel is situated right on the Mall Road opposite to the tourism lift. We stayed here for two days before heading off to Manali. The rooms are clean, comfortable and pleasant. Toilets although small are clean and well maintained. Room service is prompt and there is a restro bar in the hotel. Although we did bulk of our eating outside the hotel during sight seeing but we did spend some time in the bar. The booze was reasonably priced and the tandoori snacks were just yum. Will recommend for people traveling on a tight budget and short stay. Do book in advance to get better prices.

CONS- No central heating but a room heater was provided on extra charge (Should be free)

Room Tip: Ask for the BIG room. A bit expensive but can easily accommodate a family of four.

this property is situated in heart of shimla just opp lift at the start of mall road. you have the ease of going anywhere for sightseeing as well as its location pn mall road makes it convenient to have a leisure walk on mall and ridge. rooms are pretty good keeping the tariff structure. Room service definitely upto the mark. if you have kids with you, just at downstairs..you may have prams at 50 rs per hour. food is not at all any problem as there are plenty of all quality restaurants in the vicinity.
overall you may save a lot of time and money at this place..but if you are more of indoor person, this place is definitely not for you.
