Pleasant stay and well-maintained rooms

5.5/7
Posted 23 Jan, 2016

The Hotel is located at a strategic corner, you can have wonderful scenery of the valley and mountain from the room. We visited during 2015 Diwali. It was a refreshing experience staying three days in the hotel and visiting the adjacent places. Food was good. We being non vegetarian liked the Trout barbeque platter. Rooms were well maintained, geyser was working properly We booked a Black Innova from the Travel Desk of Hotel Holiday Home for taking us to Manali and Rohtang for three days. The mistake that we did was to pay the full amount before the tour was complete and as such, was cheated to the extent that last day the Driver did not turn up. A word of caution, don't pay the full amount until your trip is complete. Barring this financial loss, the stay was pleasant.

6.0/7
Posted 8 Jan, 2015

Overall experience in the hotel was good and the hotel is conveniently located. The surrounding of the hotel was superb and the staff service was very good. It was a comfortable stay and there were no delay at check-in and check-out. This hotel was maintained and the rooms are spacious and maintained with amenities like TV and geyser facility. They provided food it was good in taste and quality with both veg and non-veg and it was reasonable cost. They arrange for sightseeing and there were no activities available. It is value for money and recommendable for other travellers. It was a relaxing trip with my friends.

Rooms were very spacious. We had sea beach view from hotel rooms. Bathroom was neat and clean. TV and other basic amenities were there. Varieties were available there in the menu card and both veg and non-veg varieties were served. Food was tasty. Quality and quantity wise, Play ground was there for kids. I went there with my family in the month of July 2013 for relaxation.

3.3/7
Posted 28 May, 2014

It was a government property. Service was not good. It was located at 1 km distance from the prime location. Pick up and drop facility was not arranged there. Room was well furnished and equipped with TV, bed, hot water, table, and neat and clean toilet. Mountain View was not visible from the room. Intercom facility was not available there. Food arrangement was okay. It was average in taste and variety. Hotel location was average. Appearance of the hotel was normal. Reception and front office staff was not well spoken and not helpful. Services were average. Garden was available in the hotel area. Shimla as a tourist destination is relaxed and wonderful for outing. I went there with my family in June.

Lidder river view was visible from the room

4.5/7
Posted 19 Nov, 2014

Behaviour of the staff members was good. I think per day tariff of the room was round 2000-2500 rupees. Location wise, the hotel was located little bit outside the city but it was very near to the river. Room was small but it was fine. TV, geyser and other necessity items were available in the room and they all were functioning properly. Lidder river view was visible from the room window. Look of the hotel was nice. Food facility was available there and it was good. I think I stayed there only for 1-2 days. There was no delay in check-in and check-out facility. Nothing was available in activities. Sightseeing trip was arranged by our own. I had gone there with my family in 2012. Money wise, the hotel was little bit costly.

Good hotel to stay with good surrounding

3.4/7
Posted 31 Dec, 2014

Hotel is good to stay but the food is not good. The food price was reasonable. Hotel is far from the airport but the surrounding was good. Shopping mall is near to hotel. There was no delay in check-in and check-out procedure. The staff were friendly and helpful with quick request. Surrounding was good and the interior and exterior appearance was normal. The room was spacious, neat and maintained. There was a view from the hotel room. All amenities were in working properly in the hotel. There was no swimming pool and no gym to make our stay more comfort. I went in my own vehicle. It was value for the money and the place is very good. I would like to recommend other travellers to visit the hotel.

Overall, stay was good and value for money

4.5/7
Posted 21 Oct, 2014

The overall experience was very great, no vehicle was provided by the hotel, and the hotel was conveniently located in the centre of the main city and was close by to market. The appearance of the hotel from interior and exterior was good. It was a very old hotel but maintenance of the hotel was nice. We had no problem in check-in and check-out. The staff were not so friendly but responding our request. The room was very spacious it had all old furniture in the room. The facility like TV and AC was functioning well but geyser was not running well. There were beautiful views from top of the hotel. Welcome drink was provided, not provided to us. We did not eat food in the hotel. Other activities were not arranged by them. As our stay was very short so don't know about sightseeing facility in the hotel. There is no suggestion to improve the hotel and I will not recommend to others this hotel because they was no place to park the vehicle. Overall, stay was good and value for money.

Make sure you bargain

5.3/7
Posted 17 Nov, 2011

Two of us left from Delhi for Shimla on October 27 in a Volvo booked through Red Buses. Per ticket cost 880INR. The bus left from behind Chandralok building opposite to Imperial Hotel at Janpath. The departure time was delayed by one hour and it took two hours to tour Delhi before we could finally leave the borders. We reached Shimla at 6:45am. We were dropped about 15kms off the hotel and negotiated the distance in a taxi that charged 150INR. Hotel Holiday Home (HHH) in Shimla is a HPTDC hotel located near the mall road and a walk of five minutes from the Lift which takes you to the main market two levels above the ground. Little pinchy for the pocket as the tariff does not include the breakfast but once-in-a-while you can let looooo..se. Going by the reception staff, a web booking of the hotel does not warrant a discount but believe me, it does if you press a bit while checking in which we came to know while settling our dues during check out, ah.. we missed the 10 to 20 percent cut. Mall road market has the British touches, especially the scandal point with two well dressed sepoys of the \'gentry\' and ofcourse the broad welcomiing theatre. You will find several attractive places to shop but beware of the prices..little too high. For simple buys, you could choose hand made woollen socks, caps, mufflers, custom free woollens at a blanket price of 150 INR each. But, for others please do not forget to haggle. Well, a last discovery, which proved the best to satiate our shopping spree, a tribal shop at the hotel. It gave us the best buys. The main bus/taxi stand is very close to the hotel and accessibility to the site seeing spots is quite easy. You can arrange for a tour taxi at the travel desk in the hotel or a local driver but try to haggle a bit to get a fair price otherwise be open to being taken for a ride. However, the inflating fuel prices to some extent do justify the escalated demand. In Shimla petrol is a whopping INR 75 a litre. From Shimla plan your visits to Kufri, Naldhera, Tattapani and not the least God\'s own place Chail. They would come in the package. Locally do not miss monkey ridden Zaku temple and Institute of advanced studies with Burma teak interiors. It would hold you in awe, more so because here the Shimla Conference - the talks of India-Pakistan division were held. Try to snatch a photo at the table where they really talked. For you to identify...the round shaped medium built table has a split in between and is on the right side of the entrance adjacent to the conference hall of the Viceroy. Shimla and around, can be seen in two whole days not more, provided you
