Awesome Hotel with good facilities

6.5/7
Posted 17 Oct, 2015

Last year I have stayed in this hotel. This hotel is worth of money. This hotel is totally awesome. This hotel is among one of the famous hotels in Shimla. I have stayed in this hotel with my parents when we come Shimla for a trip. This hotel is situated on a very good place. The environment around this hotel is really nice. The hotel appears really great. Their is everywhere fresh air is available. Many types of food items are available here. I and my parents were sleeping on a really comfortable bed with its most comfortable mattresses. The television set is very nice LCD and situated at the place where it should be. The room was really awesome with its brilliant design. AC was also very powerful. The bathroom was also really neat and clean. Food that we ate was really fantastic. The front office looks great and the staff here are helpful and take their duty properly. None was rude to me. No one was doing anything wrong. Every staff was very nice and he/she come with a single word to call with and was handling our requests in time. So the service of this hotel is really very good. The scene of seeing the outside world from the window of our room was absolutely awesome. Everything which is required to the guests were supplied to us. We did not felt any difficulty in staying in this hotel. There is a famous restaurant right next door to it The Taj restaurant. This is famous for it's food which is hygienic and also the cost is far less. Also there is a big cinema house where you enjoy movies at a lower cost. There is also a park at back of the hotel. So it was a very happy trip for me with my parents. So We really enjoyed our trip. Hence I would like to advice the other travellers to at least visit this hotel for one time and enjoy the services of this hotel. You will definitely not feel any difficulty and this hotel will make your trip awesome.

Excellent services with good food

6.0/7
Posted 7 May, 2014

Stay at the hotel was good. It is located far from station. Location wise, it is good. Look wise, it is nice. Pick up and drop facility was not available. Rooms were nice. Geyser and TV were there. Parking facility was provided. A nice view was visible from hotel rooms. I had no problem to stay at this hotel. Whatever we ordered, we got that immediately and staff was excellent. Food was delicious. Food arrangement was perfect. Complimentary breakfast was not given. Varieties were available there in the menu card and both veg and non-veg varieties were served. Booking, front office, and reception service was excellent. There was no outdoor activity available. It is a fabulous place for tourism.

Hotel was expensive according to facilities

5.0/7
Posted 20 Sep, 2014

My stay was for three days in the hotel. I reached the hotel easily. Pick-up facility was available there but drop facility starts from 7 am. I travelled there with my family for outing. Overall, capacity of the hotel was normal. Hotel location was nice. Services were not up to the mark. I think restaurant facility was not available there. They provided the food facility from outside. I made my booking online. Drop facility charge was costly. Rooms were fantastic. All basic amenities were available in the room like TV, hot water, etc. Wash room was neat and clean. Mountain view was visible from the room. Nothing was available in activities. Hotel arranged cab facility for sightseeing trip. My experience in the hotel was nice. Hotel was costly according to facilities.

We visited this place in the month of February for a holiday trip. The destination was an average place to visit. The location of the hotel was average; it was away from the main area of the city. The best way to reach the hotel was by cab. The appearance of the hotel was good and ambience was good. The reception staff's were good and friendly. It was an online booking. The room was good and heater facility was good. The service was very good and they were on time without delay. The food and drink were average, the breakfast was complimentary. The overall experience was good.

Welcome drinks were given. I would rate the room service excellent since the staff were quick in responding. I would rate my room as excellent because the maintenance was done neat, and it was spacious and clean.

Cooperative staff; good food

6.2/7
Posted 22 Aug, 2014

The hotel is near a chain of hotels and is excellently located. The front desk staff was cooperative and efficient. The room was good and I was upgraded to the better room (suite). The buffet dinner was just alright. The choices are limited and not so tasty. The morning breakfast was good with vast choices. Away from the hubbub side, this is for sure a must visit. Food was good and staff was cordial. Pickup and drop facility to mall road adds up for a comfortable stay. The best was the parking, safe and right in front, which is actually a concern in Shimla. Would love to stay here every time we go there.
