Totally a best in class Hotel with all facility

Posted 16 Nov, 2015

I went to this hotel some time ago with my wife. We stay in Amba hotel. My wife suggested me to stay in this because it has good service in this hotel. We booked a room for us. Reception and entry is very attractive. Then a boy picked our luggage and direct us to the room. We found room really big with nice interiors and equipped with all needful things like TV, geyser, telephone, WiFi, heater etc. Bathroom and balcony so neat and clean that impress us more. Room location very good and also nice view in balcony. Room service was very fast and tasty good. Parking facility there and also near the market. Overall very nice hotel to stay.

Decent budget hotel and superb service

Posted 31 Oct, 2015

In the budget segment, this hotel stands right at top. Excellent location, we have stayed here for 4 days and barring in-house food, all the experience is value for money. I would advise to avoid in-house food here and the service is excellent. Staff is polite and friendly, spacious and well maintained simple room, and nice peaceful atmosphere here. Suggested this property for budget trips.

Low budget and good hotel

Posted 29 Oct, 2015

As we completed our trekking in Shimla we relaxed in this hotel. As it appeared normally but good in food services and some activities. Encouraging staff, good management and good people. Need to improve in the international standards. Less interior and exterior designs, its near to the city surroundings. We ordered biryani, it's too good and low in cost. Outside of the hotel we purchased handicrafts and some apples as it is famous. Front office is good and good community people.
