"Spacious rooms and awesome balcony view"

4.3/7
Posted 14 Jan, 2016

Fare- 800Rs per room for 2 person. We got a nice spacious room with attached toilet-bathroom. Geyser was fully functional and we also had a facility to use heater on extra charges. We also got a TV but with very less working channels. The high point was Awesome view of Shimla Hills from the Balcony. Conclusion- Nice, affordable, and Luxurious. Will surely stay there when we revisit Shimla.

The hotel was conveniently located near the city. Kitchen was provided in the room. The staff were friendly. The room was neat and clean. Check-in and check-out was done on time. The hotel had a modern look. The room was spacious and well-maintained. AC, TV and geyser were in working condition. There was no special view from my room. Hot and cold water facility was provided all the time. Drinking water should have been provided in the room. The food rate was little bit on higher side. The food quality was good. There were no activities in the hotel. The hotel was value for money.

"Great place to stay but it was expensive stay"

5.3/7
Posted 27 Apr, 2015

Bathroom of standard room was very small so choose the luxury room. No ventilation in the bathroom. Food & buffet spread is average. Food is expensive compared to other similar hotels. Buffet dinner is Rs900 and a coke costs Rs200. In Novotel the buffet costs Rs700.

Travelling to this hotel was very easy as it was located on the mall road. The location of the hotel was very peaceful. From outside it looks like a showroom, not so great. It was completely underground. The hotel was very good. Breakfast was not provided there. Food facility is also not available there. The services provided were good. The room has all the basic amenities. The room and the bathroom were well maintained. There was no particular view from the room window. They did not have any indoor and outdoor games in the hotel.
