To reach this hotel we have to walk a lot ..

6.1/7
Posted 15 May, 2017

It's worth walking for this amazing hotel . They've already won the best award & it seems they'll keep winning! But it's only for Indian government employees. Pre booking is done online. It also has a restaurant with good quality food. View from the hotel is beautiful.

Good accommodation for a family!

4.6/5
Posted 19 Nov, 2015

A good accommodation for a family very near to mall road easily approachable. Reasonable rate all facilities good environment. Recently eating food court Bikaner has started. Not far of from railway station. All amenities TV coloured, mattresses blankets heater almirahs available housekeeping service on demand. For tourist famous eating spots like Sagar ratna nearby and main markets for purchase. I suggest the best hotel for reasonable price, accommodation & on the main place of Shimla.

Its was a wonderful stay

3.6/5
Posted 9 Dec, 2015

My visit of Shimla was great this was a family tour. From Kalka we reached Shimla by Kalka Shimla rail. It was great may be 103 tunnel in Kalka Shimla train route. We stay in grand hotel. The Hotel Grand was very good. Hotel kaphi high par ta so the view was too good of Shimla. Room was big and clean and the bed was so comfort, room heater and water geyser was available in the room. 1 LED, TV with cable in the room 2 big almira was in the room. Hotel staff was very polite and helpful all staff behave like gentlemen I suggest that woollen clothes must carry with you. We visit Shimla in July but weather of Shimla was very cold in July so must carry woollen clothes. Meal is not too expensive in Shimla and tasty is too good. Must eat Gulab jamun after dinner. One more suggestion is that do not shopping expensive things. In Shimla must visit jhako temple, ridge Shimla church kali Bari temple Kufri Shimla heritage museum. Kari Bari temple was near to my Hotel Grand.

Clean and comfortable hotel; polite staff

3.7/5
Posted 25 Mar, 2015

Grand Hotel is a holiday home run by Government of India. Situated at the heart of city, the hotel is only a 5 minutes walk to ridge, Mall Road and lower bazaar. We stayed here for 2 nights. Check-in and check-out was easy and quick. We were allocated a good sized double bed room, with an awesome view of Shimla city and mountain valley. Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple. It can be booked online Overall, it was great value for money at an average cost of Rs. 600/- per day (Charges for State Govt. Employee), Rs. 300/- for Central Govt. Employee. The staff of this hotel was very soft and polite and helpful Food, breakfast was good but not great. You can try some other restaurants if possible. The hotel is near the bus stand (old one) but far away from the new bus stand where all Volvo buses will drop you.
