Hotel city view is located fairly high up on the ridge affording you a lovely view of Shimla from above and beautiful skyscapes in the evenings (however it is only about 5 minutes distance from scandal point). You can observe the daily going ons of the local macaques on the rooftops and sometimes even interact with them if you're on the top floor balcony! The rooms were all very clean and in good condition and the staff members always provided excellent room service and were perfectly friendly to boot! As an added bonus most of them could speak pretty good English too. If we ever come back to Shimla we will always choose to stay at Hotel City View.
