Friendly Staff; Clean & Spacious Rooms
on May 3, 2018
*We travelled India for 3 months (February-May) staying mostly in budget friendly accommodations in a private room with attached bathroom. We are a young Canadian couple. Other accommodations that we stayed at in India that we rated between 3-5 stars are: Hotel the Spot, Kedar guesthouse, Roundcube Bungalows, 03, Flavia, Premavati Guesthouse, Gir Wild Farms, Cosy Guesthouse, Tofu Hotel & Safari, Sunface Homestay, and Ram Yoga House. Prices for the private rooms we stayed in (depending on location and time of year) ranged from 400-2500 rupees a night, but typically we paid around 700-1000 rupees. Our reviews are based on the specific rooms we stayed in.*
We stayed at Verma’s Homestay for a few nights in April for 800 rupees a night. We were very happy with our stay and rate this accommodation 5/5.
-Our room was upgraded to the family room at no additional cost as we wanted to stay longer and this was the only available room.
-There are 2 “blocks” of rooms (beside each other) and the first night we had a basic room in 1 block and the remaining nights we had the family room in the other block. Both times our room was spacious and clean.
-The family room we stayed in had good wifi (however it was turned off during the night time) and also had large windows offering lots of sunlight and amazing views of the mountains
-The staff were so friendly and helpful. We were greeted at our taxi upon arrival at 11pm at night and over our stay we were provided information for any questions we had (ie local bus, things to do, etc)
-The restaurant owner/cook (Vijay Thakur) was so friendly and made delicious Dal Fry meals and food was fairly priced!! We shared lots of good conversation with Vijay and the young boy who speaks English and lives at the homestay. We really enjoyed the restaurant!!
-wifi doesnt work in one of the blocks
Nice property in a peaceful location. Had a good time with a family especially to see the sunrise and sunset.

Peaceful location, very polite staffs. Not to far from the city center, reasonable price for a family room which includes beautiful view of a valley and neighborhood. Clean environment.
However, they should work on basic thing that a home stay should have like toilet papers, ash tray in smoking rooms, dustbin and hot water boiler as we all know that Shimla is known for its cold weather, so something that can warm instantly like tea, coffee or a hot should be there in every room.
Overall, its a good place to stay in, if you are looking for a peaceful holiday and its also a pet friendly hotel.
There is a Dog by the name of Diesel in the neighborhood who is very friendly and welcoming!

It was an amazing stay there. We were 7 people in group.
This is hotel is 15 kms from Kufri which is fine and around 4 kms from Shimla Mall road.
The hospitality at the hotel was too good. They helped us with carrying the bags till the room. Also arranged for the dinner even when their dining was closed.
We had an amazing breakfast for 2 days.
The rooms had 1 double bed and 1 single bed , which can accommodate 4 people in 1 room easily.
This review is from 7 of us. :)

Reaching the place was tough as google maps were not locating the place properly . Need to ring the Hotel person for perfect location. Road to the hotel is very small , be careful while driving . Will be away from the disturbances of city . Calm and quiet place . Rooms were a big small but still satisfied . All requirements are given . Good food . Cleanliness maintained . View from the hotel is beautiful .
