3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

As fellow reviewers had already mentioned, it is located on the 4th and 5th floor of the ISBT building, so not a typical mid/high end hotel set up. The rooms however were very neat, spacious and clean. Even the bath rooms were large and well designed with premium fixtures. One drawback was the unavailability of fans. Shimla can get hot during June and without fan, one has to open the windows for ventilation which can comprise safety and calmness given the location of the property. Break fast was good, tasty and staff was quite service oriented. None of the hotels in these hill stations have ACs and a first time traveller shouldn't assume that a deluxe room would by default have AC.

I stayed at the hotel with my family from 2-4 June 2014. We had taken an Map package for 2 nights and 3 days. My wife made a face when we reached the hotel as the hotel was situated in a mall which also housed the new bus terminal of shimla. An out of order lift and lack of proper signage made the matters worse. Finally we were checked in.

The deluxe room was spacious with a double bed and all other amenities like led fridge etc. The washroom was spacious but lacked a bath tub though there was ample space for its installation. But when you opened the windows you could see the various buses and heard their blaring horns from the bus stand so we kept the windows closed for the entire trip.

Now coming to the distance from various spots of shimla. You would require a vehicle to visit these spots as nothing is within walking distance from the hotel. So do not think about a stroll after dinner the only inhabitation around is the bus stand and a few shops in the mall.

Now the good points the food is excellent. The breakfast and dinner buffet were sumptuous and extensive. The staff was attentive to our needs and the chef was present personally during the meals and asked about our opinions and suggestions.

The night passed peacefully as the windows were closed but the buses start again at 5 am so opening of windows to let the fresh air in is not advisable.

The hotel is ideal for travellers who believe in hectic tours and use the room for sleeping only. The hotel offers ample parking which is at a premium in the city and of course the food is good.

I had visited last month in June. To my surprise the room which I got on the first day werep not good as shown in the pictures. 2nd day I was moved to a much better room after speaking to the GM of the hotel Mr Hoshiyar Singh. It is a good budget hotel. Breakfast was not so widespread but whatever they served was tasty. Rooms are comfortable. The good thing is that the rooms don't l smell. The location from the mall is far off. You can't go walking. You need to either take a bus or a taxi from the hotel. I don't think by any means it is a 3 star property. The lobby is very unimpressive. You get a doubt looking at the lobby. Also there is a bus stop beneath the hotel. The hotel has ample parking which is a great advantage for the visitor. There is improvisation required in doing up with the interiors of the dining area , lobby area and some of the rooms.

Location is little odd. its a five storied building with New ISBT at its ground floor, SRS and CCD on 3rd floor. and the hotel is on 4th floor. The kind of rush at the ground floor can make you feel uncomfortable. Lift is very slow. But, the reception is good, but the overall ambiance at reception requires a makeover (as the work here was still under progress).Once you are on the 4th Floor; you will find the place great with good Customer service.Rooms are excellent and washroom are great. Staffs are very courteous and are always ready to help. Restaurant area is great, but the Food is average and also, the place has very less or no amenities (Disc, games, etc). The same hotel at a different location would have been much better. But overall, it was a great experience and is recommended if you are not interested in amenities and can bear the average food
