"Good place to stay"

Posted 31 May, 2016

The rooms were in good condition. The environment was calm. Food was also nice. But beware of monkeys. Avoid going alone as monkeys snatch the things. Try to move in groups. Room service was very good. There is a terrace where you can enjoy sunrise and sunset.

"The hotel was very nice and well furnished"

Posted 26 Jan, 2016

It was my first experience in Shimla. I was with my lovely wife. She was decided that we were going to Maharaja Hotel in Shimla. The hotel was very nice and well furnished throughout all the destination. It would be providing comfort and feeling awesome when we enter in that hotel. Really, the hotel members were very good in their nature and they provided good facilities to us. I thank to each and every members of Maharaja hotel. The service was very well with nominal cost. When you have enough time to spend please must visit Maharaja Hotel once. I was surprised with viewing all the environment that covers the hotel. I suggest to everyone, please go and feel it by from your bottom of heart.

"Average hotel but location is not good "

Posted 12 Jan, 2016

Hotel maharaja is fairly located from the bus stand. Not good for the old age people because it's too far and uphill. Location is not so good but average. Rooms are average too but the view is very nice from the rooms. Food is average and took time to serve. Staff is averagely good. Only recommended when no option left.

"Awesome hotel with good scenery "

Posted 26 Oct, 2015

My visit to Shimla has been extraordinary. It is one visit which i will remember for my life. My family also liked the place. Our stay at Hotel Maharajah palace was awesome. Location and the scenery around Shimla was mind blowing and refreshing. My kid loved the chillness and the snow in Rohtang pass.

"Spacious rooms with good room service, fresh food"

Posted 4 Aug, 2014

We visited Shimla last year after checking so many hotels through broker we finally decided to stay in hotel Maharaja. Their rooms are big, spacious and lively very near to the mall road hardly 5 min walk and the best part we bargain for the discount and they gave us room on three hundred discount (1300 earlier it was 1600). Room were clean and bathroom is also clean and big. Room service was good and supportive, food was also delicious but it took time because they serve you fresh, after taking order they prepare for meal and non-veg items are very good. Kali Bari mandir is situated just beside the hotel hardly 30 steps you go there in the early morning and get refreshed and the front view is spectacular. Visit hotel Maharaja and enjoy the beautiful Shimla.

"Good location; tasty food; spacious rooms"

Posted 29 Oct, 2014

Hotel was very good. Location of the hotel was very nice. I had no problem during check-in and check-out facility. It was located near by market. Rooms were neat, clean, and spacious. Staff behaviour was helpful and co-operative. Whenever you required anything, they served you quickly. Rooms were very clean and well furnished. A nice view was visible from hotel rooms. Nothing was available in activities. I took my breakfast in the hotel and it was tasty. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and other tourists. It was totally money worth. Shimla is a fabulous place as tourism.

"Decent hotel; spacious rooms"

Posted 17 Sep, 2014

My summer vacations were going on. It was hot summer in Jammu. So, I along with my family decided to visit Shimla. It was a beautiful city. We were advised about the hotel Maharaja by one of my uncle. The building of the hotel was decent. It was a multi storeyed building. The front office was not much impressive. The rooms were spacious enough. Their room service was quite good. One can see the beauty of the city from the room itself. Besides there were two restaurants nearby it.
