The stay was comfortable.


I visited Shimla with my friends. The location of the hotel was convenient to reach. We visited Shimla for the first time so am not very familiar with the city. The appearance of the hotel was average I didn't see much as we just stayed there for a night. The front office staff were helpful and polite. The overall service at the hotel was prompt they were responsive. We didn't request any service at the hotel as it was a very short stay. The room was neat and clean they provided hot water blankets. The location behind was very nice. There was no extra activity at the hotel. We didn't take any food from the hotel.

Pleasant stay; staff was cooperative & helpful


I had a pleasant stay in this hotel. Its design of structure is much good and it is built on a hill with so beautiful view. The staff is very cooperative and helpful. The food is not so delicious but not so bad also. The rooms are better but not so beautiful that we think that should be. Overall I will give 5 points to the hotel.

Good employes and nice location


I had a good experience and feel secure at the time of staying in hotel Prakash, it's having a great location at mail road Shimla. The service quality was good and the behavior of employee was good. From the hotel window the view of hill were best, I have never seen the location like that from I will get this type of view. It is too easy to reach the hotel and they also provide the cab facility for outing. It was one of the best Experience of My Life ,.

Very pleasant hotel


We are a married couple, and would like to say that this hotel was very pleasant. The food was good, with many choices, and the service of the waiters in the restaurant was excellent, they were very polite and friendly. This was the same for all the staff of the hotel, especially in the reception, and the cleaning staff. The rooms were very nice too, clean and tidy. We would like to come back for several weeks next year
