Had a satisfied stay at this hotel

Posted 7 Feb, 2017

My visit to this hotel was in the month of January 2017. Shimla as a destination is average as it is a simple city. The hotel location is very good since it is very near to mall Road and it was located vey conveniently. There are transport facility available near to the hotel. Appearance of the hotel was average as it is look like made of wood. The hotel room was available in the underground. The booking and front office of good as the staffs were very polite and they front office area was very decorative. I booked my room though Goibibo. The serivce provided at this hotel was very good as they were quick and they provided us hot water while having food. The disadvantage at this hotel is no breakfast was provided. the room was average as it was available in the underground. Wi-Fi facility was available at this hotel. I stayed here for two days and I was satisfied with the stay. I will suggest this hotel for other travellers to stay.

Spacious rooms and awesome balcony view

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.

Hotel was conveniently located

Posted 30 Jul, 2015

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

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.
