If you are just a budget group tourist, may be this hotel is OK. Very pretty facade, specially with the lights illumination. Attention: you have to follow many stairs to reach your room.
I get a suite at the back side. Two rooms, two big double beds, partly clean. Everything terrible. Dirt. Dark. Against the dust - fat. Cockroaches.Terrible both bathrooms. Hot water available but huge problems with water pressure. It was really hard to take a shower. Very loudly till deep night, and since early morning from outside.Terribly steal door noise and smb. vomiting without the end took your sleep time. No toilet paper, soap, (used soap!). Guys working as reception staff were totally from the ,,another story. No basic elements of culture. Using VERY broken English, having their hands in the trousers pockets during the ,,conversation, etc. No reaction on my report about cockroaches. Mostly no communication. Talk by hazard with the owner was the pleasure and rarity! I received all necessary staff for the bathroom, in a travel pocket. BIG surprise!
Next night I get suite at the front side, with the view on Shimla city and mountains around. Nice two rooms. Clean beds. Same problems with the bathrooms. Very dirty sunny rooms in wood. Small cockroaches. I have used wet napkin to clean wooden elements of armchair. White napkin becomes black immediately. So just dirty to say, it isnt enough- ,,fat dirt.
That all just only because one reason: people are lazy and stinky. Very pity: best localization, ,,star city", famous history, many tourists- and lack of basic understand ,, what I am here for", ,,why I do this", ,,what is my best" and ,,what can I win thanks my doings".
To compare with the price that days, hotel was VERY expensive! And we talk about the higher price as in four stars great hotels in Chandigarh and near! Crazy! Dont stay there!
If you don't mind stairs (if you don't like stairs you shouldn't come to Shimla), or if you're good with peace and quiet away from the car noises, pollution and everything else, then this is a great place.
Great location- on mall road, but on the edge and away from noise and foot traffic
Staff was nice and kind and friendly and always helpful when needed!
Would recommend staying here -- I would do it again!
Good Hotel but stairs are problem if u are staying at top floor then u have to climb some 70 Stairs up-down each time u go-out. Food is good at reasonable rate.
Very good if Lift attached to it.
Location is good, staff is also good, owner is a good man happy to serve you always.
Only stairs are a problem.
Best hotel with best view, location, cleanliness, worth money, pleasing staff,very humble manager.
I recommend everyone to visit this hotel once.
Awesome food. Parents and babies felt like at home.
Very good housekeeping staff.
To Start off with there is no road to this hotel, the hotel is located on Mall road where vehicles are not allowed. The vehicle can go up to High court parking and then you need to walk up the hill. You will find a man who would carry your luggage to the hotel for a charge.
Heart patients need to stay calm and take short breaks as its extremely incline and has to climb loads of steps before you reach out to any hotel located on mall road,
Mall road is one of the beautiful streets in Shimla, no vehicles zone, and loads n loads of shopping shops.
Back to the hotel ... the check in process was too quick there is no lift & one has to climb several stairs, the rooms were decent, yeah rooms were small but ok.
In-house restaurant was decent and after 10 days of travel, I wish to have home food and this hotel just got it right.
The Internet is free but available only from 8:00pm to 10:00 pm and the other hours it's charged.
