Hotel was very difficult to find, down very steep stairs. None of the locals we asked knew where it was. Eventually when we found it we were very disappointed. The room smelt like urine. Walking past the kitchen we saw it was mouldy and full of rubbish. The pictures used are very deceptive. Avoid.
Worst place and fraud Hotel
on Jul 2, 2017
I booked this hotel Laljee via booking.com for 2 nights with the option to pay at Hotel but they keep calling me to pay before check in. I paid 2000 via Paytm. When I reached hotel Laljee I found this property is terrible, location is bad no parking and rooms were pathetic. I refused to stay and asked for refund but staff Mohit Mandal and owner said that I will get the refund from booking.com. When I contacted booking.com they said hotel Laljee refused the money paid and hence can't refund. Since then I'm calling hotel but either no one answers or not giving refund.
Pathetic Hotel....full of rogues
on May 16, 2017
Location is end of mall road...parking is 1 km away. And the hotel is not located on road but five floors down the road where u've to walk down the steep stairs. No assistance for luggage transfer from car to hotel. Location is worst.
Secondly it's not a hotel but a dharmshala. Management i.e Miss Nidhi of hotel does not operate from hotel but someplace else so the manager at hotel does not know about the bookings etc. Manager at hotel is a nice fellow but the general manager is a daytime drunkard and has no decency left of how to behave with family.
For us they made a makeshift arrangement of rooms as they said that all rooms are full. This is when we had prior bookings made online along with payment.
They take all deposits at time of check in and refuse to provide services and receipts during your stay.
There was no water available in room for a day and the response was this is usual in shimla.
Food preparation is pathetic and they serve food cooked for lunch also during dinner times.
Overall I would say that this hotel is for solo travellers but that too not on these prices. There are many good options available in these rates.
Think twice before you book this stay especially for Families.
Nice Budget Hotel in Shimla on Mall Road
on Apr 20, 2017
Hotel Laljee is one of few hotels on Mall Road Shimla which is derivable. Walking distance to the hotel is just 10 metres from the Mall Road. After you get down from your vehicle its hardly 2-3 minutes walk to the hotel. Best part of the hotel is that just after 2-3 minutes walk from the hotel you step out on the Mall Road, from where you can visit The Max Museum, The Mall Road Market, The Ridge, Christ Church, Lakkar Bazzar, Scandal Point and if you are little adventurous and don't mind walking for like 30 minutes then you can visit the historic Institute of Advanced Studies also by foot. And to add on more to your adventure you can also walk to Jhaku Temple through stairway road taking live experience of "monkey games" on the way to Jhaku Temple. To sum up I can say this hotel is gateway to the Mall Road with hassle free luggage troubles that we generally face in hill stations and you car can come till the mall road from where you hotel is just 2-3 minutes walk away. Less price and more value.
