Before I tell you anything about the place I must admit that the people who are running this place are amazingly helpful.. They booked a taxi for me from Shimla to Manali and were always prompt to pick up my phone and help me during my 8 days in Himachal when they could have easily ignored to do so . Thank you Kumar Saurabh for being so helpful. The hotel is a small place with fine little rooms . There is not much problem with the place except for Steep Steps towards the room . This is surely a budget hotel but the Mr Saurabh you desrve to run a star property.

I booked this hotel for my intermediate stay in Kalka while going to Shimla. They told me that its a budget hotel and not to expect much from it and town. Its a small hotel but the owner tries to go extra mile to please u ....apart from that its just a basic place with small rooms and steep staircase. One thing I didnt liked was a little confusion during the checkout process other then that its just fine.

A good one for money conscious people.Very near to the Railway Station Hotel has very steep steps towards the room but overall the people are warm and the room service is prompt. We stayed in Semi Deluxe rooms which were on 3rd floor phew a bit difficult to climb.

If you are a non fussy traveller who is ok with a small nice, clean and no frills this place is good enough for your stay. Small town with nothing much to do. Visit the temple as its the only place to see in this town.

Room Tip: if you are wise enough to see the reviews never waste your money and energy staying in this hotel.

From telephonic booking to check out, We got one of the best service. The budget hotel near Kalka station perfect for early morning trains. The person named Kumar Saurabh realy impress me. With in half an hour he give me feedback about our booking status. He recommend a restaurant to us which has one of the best quality food we ever had. I seriously recommend this hotel for Early morning trains.
