    Good but not Great
    on Oct 8, 2019
    The location of the hotel is brilliant. On the mall road and a 5 mins walk from the ridge area. We stayed at the valley view rooms which provide a nice view of Shimla City and the ridge from the balcony. The adjacent cafe - Cafe Shimla Times also provides nice finger food. The breakfast is absolutely delicious. However the rooms are a bit small and the fittings and finish are not of highest quality considering the price you pay. The bathroom is also cramped and you have to stand on a non functional bathtub to get a shower which I thought is very risky for elder people. Overall very good hotel, but there are some areas they need to work on. We had a nice trip to Narkanda Thanedar and Mashobra from Shimla. For the entire trip experience search Google with ramblersnaps.blogspot... More

    Amazing property.
    on Sep 11, 2019
    Hi. I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and booked two rooms. We were allotted the attic rooms which had amazing view and the room was perfect.You need to park your car atand the multilevel parking opposite Hotel Combermere. From there you need to take the Tourism lift which charges abtof 10rupees for adults and 7 ruppes for senior citizens. The hotel has its own lift too. PROS. #We requested for a coolie which they happily provided.(you need to pay xtra for that) # We were offered a welcome drink (iced tea) and ids were checked. #Mr. Kuldeep Verma was at the reception who made us really comfortable. #Rooms were well cleaned. Had two huge windows. Mini bar. LCD TV. #It has an adjoined restaurant EIGHTEEN71 and a cafe named SHIMLA TIMES. #Cafe shimla times has some amazing wood fired pizzas. CONS. #We booked the hotels through MMT. We got two coupons stating that we were entitled for two complimentary mocktails per room. The hotel denied it completely saying that it is expired in may although the year wasent mentioned. #I ordered a chicken sandwich from the midnight menu for which I was charged abt 380 rupees. It was actually pathetic. The word is PATHETIC. IN THE END THE STAY WAS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.SITUATED RIGHT ON THE MALL ROAD; IT MADE IT GREAT FOR US TO HAVE A GREAT TIME.... More

    Nice place with good bar
    on Aug 6, 2019
    It was Jan'18 when we visited this property. Decent property in Shimla at Mall Road with indoor as well as outdoor bar and restaurant. They had decent cocktails and good food... The rooms though we're not great. For reaching the hotel, you need to use the common lift. There is a hotel lift as well for which you have to walk on a inclined road for sometime.... More
