“A perfect combination of all sort expectations!!!”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

I was looking for a calm and quiet place near shimla away from the crowded city centre for a family stay.
luckily, I discovered 'Platonia Homestay'. Being only 30 mins away from the city center, Platonia provided me a stay which I was dreaming of indeed.

The owner and the contact person, Mr. Mayank is a complete gentleman with an outstanding combination of cordiality and sense of responsibility. He answered my every questions over phone regarding the place very patiently and helped me honestly to take a decision. The house was more beautiful, luxurious and comfortable than his description indeed. I was guided very cordially to the house and received by Mr. Mayank himself, as he was staying there at that moment during his vacation. He helped me a lot during the stay in all aspects.

I was accomodated on the first floor. Rooms are very spacious, decent, comfortable and equipped with all possible amenities. As a bonus, a living room, dining space and a well equipped kitchen are accompanied. Sufficient number of room heaters were provided free of charges.

Mrs Meena, the in-charge of the house is a very nice lady. She cooked homely and delicious dishes for us which were appreciated by all of my family members.
Her cordiality made us feel at home.

The location of the house is excellent for nature and peace lovers. The distance is practically around 35~40 mins from the main city which is not at all a problem. Google gave me a pin point location of the place. Final 100~150 meter was personally guided by the owner himself over phone. The view from the rooms was mind blowing.

The location, amenities and cordiality of the owner and the caretaker gave me a feeling of complete peace and satisfaction. I will definitely stay there again when I visit Shimla next.

In a word, it's a perfect destination for all kind guests with all possible amenities with very reasonable charges.

“A scenic abode”
Reviewed December 28, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Absolutely loved the experience at Platonia Homes. From the location, to food to the host. Loved it all! Absolutely recommend it if you are looking for a peaceful holiday with your loved ones where you can enjoy uninterrupted time to yourself, and that too in the lap of nature. To top it all, it is pretty close to the city.
P.S. Suggest you to have a conveyance to yourself for the entire stay so as to avoid any extra travel time.

“Great home with a serene view”

person found this review helpful

We were 6 friends who took 3 rooms here. The best thing is the location and the food served by the caretaker. The place is close to Shimla and yet away for anything that adds stress. Come here after a few days of work and get lost in the calm clean peace forest. The views will make you fall in love and the food will make you feel so satisfied.

We really liked the place a lot. Its a very calm and quiet place where one can go and relax for few days in the middle of mountains.
The property is very well maintained. Neat and clean rooms and bathrooms. View from the balcony is breathtaking.
Host and the caretaker both are very nice, polite and friendly people.
I will visit again soon.
