Its worth staying here nice view, awesome food, well maintained rooms n key location.. Jst get down walk towards clarks n mall started. Internet may b bit challenging but hotel staff try their best to get you connected. Its safe for every sort of travellers. All the rooms have good scenic views.
We stayed here for two days and took a family room. They have the best family rooms in Shimla..We saw around 10-15 hotels before finalizing this one. These are two seperate rooms connected in between...which gives required privacy as well. Staff was owkay..could have been little more polite..but the room..the hotel..and the place it was located was good. And family room on 1st floor is best. :) It might be slightly expensive than the other hotels on mall road..but hotel was clean and spacious.
We stayed at this hotel for two days on our way to Delhi. Very helpful and kind staffs. They helped us for local sightseeing and arranged transport for our Delhi trip too. The rooms were nice compared to prices. Location is also nice. It's mall road. Wifi is also available in fast speed.
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!
