Good stay and poor food facility

Posted 18 Aug, 2016

My visit to this hotel was in June 2016. Thee food facility was not at all good. The taste was not good. The tea was also good to taste. The location of the hotel was average. There is parking facility at the hotel. Appearance of the hotel was simple. They gave poor service. There was no delay while check-in and check-out process. We stayed for two rooms and the stayed for two nights but later we booked for another rooms. The rooms were spacious neat and clean with all the basic amenities in good condition. The wash room was also neat and clean. They gave good furniture's in the room. The food facility was not good it was terrible. It was not tasty or the quality was also not good. There were no activities available at this hotel. It is a recommendable hotel according to me.

Good hotel to stay but reaching is bit difficult

Posted 13 Oct, 2015

No doubt room I stayed in was value for money and had good ambience. Bathroom was really good with hot and cold water running all the time. Hotel staff specially room service guys are really courteous. Hotel is very good, however, in its restaurant most of menu card items are not available to eat. I would recommend people to stay in Harsha who wants to stay in peace and away from crowd of Shimla. Hotel location is bit difficult to reach because it is located near HP Vidhan Sabha, police blocks the simple straight road to Harsha Hotel and you have to take another route with really narrow and steep road. If any vehicle comes from other side the situation is drastic. When I took straight road, police threatened me with fine of INR 3000 if they see me again on that road. I think Harsha Hotel management should speak with local authorities and make some procedures so their visitors don't have any problems like I faced.

Good stay and the facilities

Posted 17 Aug, 2016

I visited this hotel in June month 2016. Location of the hotel was convenient to travel. The appearance of the hotel was good but not that big hotel. The fan in the room was not working. There was TV in the room and the room was neat and clean with attached wash room. It was overall good. We did not avail food from the hotel bit they had restaurant facility there was no food available. The service they provided by the hoteliers was good. The receptionist was helpful and co-operative. The hoteliers should provide good room facilities like fan. It is recommendable hotel. Overall I had good stay at the hotel.
