    Worst hotel for the worst prive
    on May 8, 2017
    We arrived here at night and were grossly overcharged. Staff demanded cash on arrival and were very incompetent. Room was without pillows and blankets. We had to ask multiple times for everything. Next, there was no water with staff telling us it would be fixed in 5 minutes on 6 different occasions. The double bed was ok but the single was truly laughable. TV is not working. When we ordered food we were rushed as it was last orders, this is understandable however, we asked for a minute to read the menu and our door was knocked on 4 times in that one minute. Staff member was then unable to take our order in both hindi and english? Food was sub par and overpriced. Seriously dont bother with this place they just want to fleece you for money and will ruin your impression of Shimla. You will leave unshowered and unhappy.... More

    A lot of potential

    Hotel Diplomat was nothing like the previous reviews, we chose one of the more expensive rooms which included a proper mattress, hot water and a clean room. Diplomat is in a great location and proved to be much better than the hotel we stayed at previously in Shimla. Suggestions: - Ensure there are showers in the rooms - Put rubber stoppers on the chairs at the 'Himchi' restaurant, as our room was directly below the dining area of the restaurant the noise of people moving chairs late at night and early morning woke us up & was very annoying. ...

    Not a good place to stay!!
    on Sep 24, 2016
    We had a stay in this hotel. The basic facilities such as towels, soaps, shampoos, etc. were also not provided by the hotel. The rooms were very untidy and despite many follow ups, nothing was done. Further, the hotel staff is very rude and take things very lightly. Overall, the stay was very uncomfortable... More
