I went to this hotel with my family (Wife and 1 yr old daughter) as part of our Michael Pradesh expedition with first stop at Shimla for 2 days. My experience was great with this hotel especially because of the courteous staff, excellent room service and room decor. It is a compact hotel with space well utilized. So please don't expect facilities like a resort with pool and gardens. Families with small kids can stay here without any worries Amenities :. 1. Linen was spotless and bed was super comfortable . 2. We got timely room service . 3. There was a separate shower area inside the bathroom . 4. Tea and coffee maker was provided . 5. Good decor and LCD TV with all channels provided . 6. Very clean rooms with toiletries in bathroom with shower caps . 7. Adequate cabinets were provided for storing bags and hanging clothes Parking is not available in this hotel and it is located in a narrow lane. However, Cars can be parked at a distance of 50 meters from the hotel at the premises of a government building. I had a driver with me so he took care of the parking. Parking is a problem not just with this hotel but in entire Shimla. Roadside parking is seen is most parts of Shimla Food options are many near this hotel. The food within the hotel was reasonable but was average in terms of taste. It was made with typical Himachali style which tends to be bland compared to south Indian food. You will get many food options in a distance of 100 meters from this hotel. View from this hotel is serene with valley view. There are many monkeys around so windows need to be closed all time. If I again go to this place, I would make prior arrangements for parking or hire a bike. Also I would ask for a room at the ground floor because the steps to climb 1st floor are a bit steep. Its tiring especially when are you back tired and want to crash on the bed. Top floor have the advantage of a more scenic view. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you fancy sight seeing Shimla in a cost effective as well as comfortable manner. I would not spend too much time in this hotel as there are no games or extra circular activities but all that over weighs the excellent rooms and polite staff which delights you and feel special.
The hotel is good and convenient to locate. I had been here on a family vacation and resided at this hotel. The appearance of the hotel was very good and interiors were nice. The staff members in the hotel are helpful and friendly in behaviour. The food quality of the hotel was poor and taste was not good, and price was also expensive. The room allotted to us was spacious and cleanly maintained with all the necessary amenities in good condition. There were no activities or games conducted by the hotel management. Overall, our stay was comfortable at this hotel and destination Shimla is also an awesome place for holidays. I suggest the hotel management to work on food quality and improve it.
We visited to Shimla on 16 Nov 2014 and enjoyed the stay with Hotel Kapil. This is THE BEST PLACE to stay. We found below best quality about the hotel and staff. We received warm and smiley welcome by staff after the long journey Hotel is in heart of the market. Market, mall road are just ahead to 5 min walk from hotel. You can enjoy the walk from market to hotel after 10 PM also. Hotel is very neat and clean The hotels rooms are big enough for couple and no need to worry for other things including your toiletries. This is really 4 star property All staff members are very attentive in mid-night also and very polite. Staff is ready to help you and guide you as they helped us to get same quality hotel in Manali. For that I really wish to appreciate their support. Its worth to enjoy the stay with Kapil. Value for money!
