Nice hotel with normal room service

Posted 27 Dec, 2015

The hotel is nice, with ok-ok atmosphere. Room service is normal, food is ok-ok. Travelling is long to this place from central market as it's far off from the main road. Basically a middle class hotel if you are a budget constraint one. However this hotel is a go-one if you are there to stay long to save money as well.

Pleasant trip but difficult to locate the hotel

Posted 24 Dec, 2015

I went to Shimla on a family trip it was a good experience had lots of fun the bed was extra comfortable it was like sleeping on a cloud. The television set was of very good quality and all the channels were coming in HD. The services were same as promised the staff were very punctual of time. Housekeeping services was okay. I had very difficulty in finding the hotel and I wish had known before. There are many good restaurants near the hotel the meals are cheaper than my thoughts. If I come again I will choose only this hotel.

Staff was very friendly & food was average

Posted 17 Dec, 2015

I visited this hotel last year. It's a average hotel according to my view compared to it's price. Staff of this hotel is very friendly. I think if you visited Shimla in minimum budget than this hotel suits you. If I visited again Shimla hotel than I pack my food from home. Food was average.

Good hotel to stay in good location

Posted 27 Nov, 2015

Located at lower mall just stone throw from lift parking. Good hotel with ample parking area, good spacious room neat and tidy. Sophisticated presentation of food you order in room. Draw back is too far from the mall, but comparatively good away from crowd.

Wonderful stay

Posted 26 Nov, 2015

Located on the Lower Mall Road in Shimla, this hotel is basically suited to Indian middle class families who visit the famous Shimla 'hill station' (now a bustling city) for a few days of sightseeing of nearby attractions One has to take the lift from the people near the hotel to go up to the Mall Road, a major city attraction. It has the facilities & amenities of a decent hotel, without the frills, and is run quite professionally. The small bathrooms have hot water in showers & a small window, but no exhaust fan The rather small rooms are adequately furnished with a decent double bed, chairs, a desk, table & stool. The 'wifi' did not work and the management was in no hurry to get it working. However, credit cards are accepted for bill payment A large dining room serves good, hot, delicious Indian meals but the cooking is high in oil. Overall, a fairly above average hotel for a reasonable tariff of Rs 3200/- per couple per night Ask for a room with a view of the hills. A 'toy train' operates from Shimla to Kalka in a 5-hr journey and the railway station is about 20 minutes by walking from the hotel.

Beautiful atmosphere & location near to mall road

Posted 3 Nov, 2015

It is one of the best government hotel in Shimla and they made all their efforts to make happy the customer by their services. Food is nice and its location is very near to the mall road in Shimla. The atmosphere of Shimla is very beautiful and it feels like you enter in a beautiful world.

Helpful staff; nice interiors

Posted 10 Jul, 2014

Three of us had gone to Shimla from Delhi during the middle of February in 2007, just before the snowfall ended! We had made our hotel booking in advance, and had selected Hotel Holiday Home. Shimla is a very good place. In Shimla there are so many sightseeing spots . . Hotel appearance was very good. Hotels interior was good. Staff were helpful. Overall, Holiday Home was very good to stay in. We booked three rooms through the website and the check-in was a breeze. The carpets in the corridor was dirty but the rooms were big.

Good location and spacious room with nice interior

Posted 24 Mar, 2015

This property belongs to and this is a premium hotel. Good location, interior is nice, rooms are spacious and open and room service is also fine. This is a Govt. Hotel but the quality is competing with private hotels. The restaurant is clean. Modern and food quality is also excellent. It is a not a normal government operated hotel, it is better than the expectation.

Good room services and beautiful rooms

Posted 30 Jul, 2015

When the first time I visited Shimla, luckily I found Holiday Home. The room was beautiful and well furnished. Even the food was good and it's like home food. The room service was good, you can have a beautiful scenery from the room itself. Hotel people suggested me the places which I shouldn't miss, very friendly people. Enjoyed my Shimla tour.
