Good To Stay at normal price
on Jun 22, 2017
Very good place to spend vacations. The hotel is near the christ church and mall road. Very good food. But you have to take taxi with luggage as the walking is tedious with weight. You can not pay food bill with credit card they only accept cash.
So be prepared initially with cash.
Cheap option.. Okay hotel.. Good people

Let me clarify beforehand that my review is with the assumption that a decent hotel in Shimla is usually rupees 3000+
The best part of the hotel was service, couple of examples to share,
(1) I had to adjust my room booking date a day prior the visit and the hotel authorities were happy to help and didn't charge any extra money
(2) There was water shortage on the day we visited, however, the hotel employees provided us (and I am sure to everyone else) hot & cold water as & when necessary
Three things can drive the rating further up,
(1) Location - it was a hassle to reach the hotel, a big no for aged
(2) View - the window opens in neighbor's balcony
(3) Advancement - they charged 2.8% extra for credit card payment!!
You can stay if you need to pass one day within nearby distance from Mall road
Amazing view and also at amazing place......

Fraud and pathetic hotel
on Feb 3, 2017
I booked single room for 5 people through Make my trip and fully paid in advance. When I reached there at 10 pm in night.my room was already allotted to sme1 else. I was asked to stay in smaller room. When I asked y my room was allotted I was told you can leave if you dnt want this room. Then I walked more than 2 km in the middle of night and found another hotel. I think no 1 should ever stay thr
Eight days sick in Shimla
on Oct 8, 2016
Our three days turned into 8 due to us both getting sick. Room service was good, but our room was very small and overpriced in spite of low season. The balcony that came with it had four chairs, either wobbly or with bird droppings on it, not inviting to be used. Another room, that our friends used, was much bigger and nicer for the same price.
We also had to put up many nights with very noisy neighbours, in one instance young people using drugs and laughing hysterically until the early hours in the morning. To our knowledge, staff did not intervene.
The hotel has a certain old world charm with wood pannelling everywhere. The beds were quite hard and mattresses thin. The bathroom very outdated, doors rotten, but good hot water supply.
Unfortunately, India's air pollution has reached Shimla and what it is famous for could not be seen through the constant haze. It was lovely cool, though.
The position of the hotel is quite good, not too far from the Ridge. All steps to and in the hotel are extremely high and there is no lift.
