“Average hotel with small Rooms,No parking,Steep climb to hotel,Near mall road.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Its an average hotel,rooms are bit smaller than average,bit overpriced,Not suitable for people who cant walk coz its very steep climb to get to the hotel,Cleartrip says hotel had parking but no parking at the hotel,I booked it for the sake of parking only.
Owner are Ok people,No issues with them,except if someone books a room for 3 people on cleartrip they should automatically provide room for 3 people.Location is 5-8 minuted walk to the mall road.Overall average hotel.

Room Tip: choose room facing the valley,

I returned yesterday from my three days trip of shimla. During this period i stayed at hotel doegar which is about 600 meter away from church at ridge.
It is just on walking distance from ridge which is main visiting and happening place of shimla.
Let me come to facts about hotel.
Rooms were good with wooden floor and walls so you doesn't need heater, No AC in the rooms justifying weather of shimla.
TV,Geyser in bathroom, warm and sufficient linen & bed in all rooms.
I stayed in the room with balcony giving view of whole city.
Hotel has its own kitchen, taxi, and could help in ticket booking also.
Food prepared and served in hotel was too delicious, i liked it more than SHER-E-PUNJAB restaurant which is main food point of shimla.
Room service and hotel staff is cooperative.
They provide me warm drinking water every morning but you have to ask.
What i can say demerits of hotel is slightly costlier (around 1500 per day), but it was affordable.
Around 17.5% tax levied in every hotel of himachal pradesh. (But you can bargain if pay in cash)

Room Tip: Ask for balcony room

I have been to this Hotel. It is a very comfortable Hotel with rich services. I stayed at Honeymoon Suit which is located on the top floor of the Hotel.the view from my room was amazing ,it was connected to a shared balcony,where he had a good party time at night.Only thing i didn't liked about it is its far from mall road but its nearby Church and the ridge.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Top floor are the best specially a Honeymoon Suit located on top Floor

Stayed two nights with my husband in November. We arrived in the dark which is always a bit scary because the taxi from the train didn't want to drop us right there- don't blame him- v steep roads! 500 rupees from train but worth getting - would have been quite a trek otherwise! Ajay's is v welcoming. Always ready to jump If you need anything. Rooms are smallish but not surprising considering the size of Shimla... Everything needs to be built on a precipice! The only complaint I'd have (and it's a small one) is that there is a smell of moth balls in the room, which I've had an aversion to since childhood. Good, fast food in the restaurant on the terrace facing awesome views.... Yeah. That's what shimla's about!

We (group of 9 friends) stayed on the top floor(family suite) of the hotel which had a terrace with a magnificent view. First day climbing to the hotel was quite steep but only because we took a shortcut of stairs and not the main thoroughfare. The staff of the hotel was quite good, though the service could have been better in terms of room cleaning and servicing the food orders.
The pricing was also quite economic considering the other options we had. Location-wise, it is only a few minutes from Mall Road, the heart of Shimla. Route to Jaku Temple also starts from very close to the hotel. Wifi connectivity was not great but that hardly mattered as the main priority was sight-seeing and hanging out, not sitting on the net.
Overall, the stay there was indeed very pleasant. Would like to stay at the same place if I visit Shimla again. Advice to fellow tourists - take a room on the top floor if you stay at Doegar.
