    Well the hotel really is at strategic location - it is just a walking distance to mall with no slope. Very economical price point at such location is difficult. Nice decent rooms - for family and friends.great food - amazing quality. Less parking hassle. Since lakaar bazaar was nearby , so all our other needs we fulfilled.infact Owner personally met us for feed back - great hospitality.... More

    Nightmarish experience. Terrible.
    on Jun 13, 2016
    I was totally disappointed by the standard of the hotel. I was expecting at least the availability of some minimum amenities and a neat room, but the stay was a nightmarish experience for me and my family. The room given to us was in a deplorable state. There were no towels, no soap and there was an unbearable stench in the room. The bathroom was unclean.The room was infested with mosquitoes which caused rashes on my daughter's arms. Check the floor on which room will be allocated before booking , as there is no elevator and 5th floor is like climbing a mountain.... More

    Excellent service and food@Satkaar Hotel
    on May 24, 2016
    A budget hotel with home like stay. I have stayed there for 4 days with family and the stay was very comfortable. Just 5 min walk form Mall road Shimla. Centrally located. Food is very good and the staff is very humble. Best part was in acute water shortage in many of the hotels these days 24 hrs water supply was there in this property. Free of cost Parking available just outside the hotel. Breakfast is better than any other hotels in the same budget... More

    I don't usually write reviews but...
    on Mar 6, 2016
    Me and my 2 friends stayed at hotel Satkaar at the end of February as it looked like a good budget place to stay in Shimla. It was advertised as a hostel online, however it turned out to be a poor excuse of a hotel. Pro's of staying at hotel Satkaar: • Good location 15 minute walk from mall road. • Nice view from the communal balcony • you can order drinks to your room at a fair price Cons: • The rooms were damp(condensation dripping on the walls) • The walls were mouldy • Strange smell of petrol which gave us headaches and ashtma • Shower was non existent, unless pouring cold water from a bucket on yourself counts • The toilet was dirty and you had to refill the flush • The duvets were damp, cold, dirty and heavy • No heating it was as cold inside the room as it was outside (5-10°C) • There was one small window in our room which opened onto a wall behind • The sockets as you can see from the photos are extremely dangerous • Everywhere was generally dirty and unclean • The interior design was atrocious. Paint was falling off the walls due to dampness • Staff couldn't care less about the quality of our stay and one of the receptionist's was rude and unhelpful • One of our room doors got kicked in by a guest on a school trip as they were on short on rooms. The previously mentioned receptionist's tried to convince us we didn't need any security for one of our 2 rooms. We thought otherwise so they nailed it back together that night • WiFi didn't reach any of the rooms was only in the reception • we started of in the economy rooms but they were even worse, so we had to pay more to stay in a so called deluxe room. Which is the room we are basing our review on (expect worse from economy room) • Not allowed to take in your own water or food from outside the hotel • As it was so cold the 3 of us shared one bed in the slightly less damp deluxe room go stay warm enough Shimla is a beautiful place, however it's a shame we will remember by the atrocity that is hotel Satkaar. For your own health, please do not stay here. ... More

    Tips for Shimla Visit.
    on Jan 4, 2016
    Instead of giving a hotel review i would like to share some points which is mandatory for anybody planning to visit Shimla. Of course it was what i learnt on this trip and stay. 1)Always book a hotel which is approachable by road else you have to risk travelling 1-1.5 kms uphill on foot from the point the taxi drops you.It is really very tiring and not recommended for elderly and kids. 2)Hotel approachable by roads are costly and not fit for budget travelers. In that case always know in advance the point exactly below the hotel where the taxi shall drop you and you can save your energy and time by travelling a smaller distance.I had my hotel above Auckland tunnel(Lakkar Bazar) and had to travel 1-1.5 kms from the Shimla taxi stands whereas i had to travel only 500m uphill from Auckland tunnel. 3)Never get meals included while booking in budget hotels like mine.You will have the worst food in your lifetime and risk stomach upsets also. 4)Last but not the least you need to hire a full day cab if you really want to enjoy all the places nearby ....
