"Good hotel with nice room"

4.6/7
Posted 10 days ago

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.

"Terrible hotel as the hotel was not spacious"

2.9/7
Posted 10 days ago

I checked in to this hotel in the month of February 2017. It is a honeymoon trip as couple. The destination is good as I like the kukdi. The location of the hotel is poor as it is far from transport facility and the best way to reach the hotel is by car. The appearance of the hotel was below average whereas I did not like interior and exterior. Booking and front office was average as it was small and only two people can sit in the reception. I booked the hotel through travel agent. The room at this hotel was poor since it was not spacious and clean. The service would be terrible as there is delay in service. Food was average since it was normal. I will not suggest this hotel to others. Overall stay was very bad

"Awesome Hotel with good facilities"

6.5/7
Posted 2 years ago

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.
