Sat in lobby for 15-minutes until a disgruntled looking man and three young men suddenly appeared through the kitchen door. Asked for a double room. I was show two initially. One on the bottom...

Our first view in the morning - from the 'restaurant' - was of the sun peeping through to show us the glorious Himalayas. We felt more like we were staying in someone's home and eating in their dining room, it was really charming and cosy. Think homestay rather than 'hotel'. An easy walk to town and the staff happy to...

This place is a heaven within the heavenly city of Simla. Tucked away from the hustle bustle of the mall road it's conveniently located close to viceregal lodge and cart road for ease movement. All rooms have a great view of Taradevi and the whole valley so be prepared to wake up to some amazing views. Must try is the...

Great view, great staff, and a really genuine hotel combine to give you a real sense of India, especially with the monkeys right outside your window. Don't go expecting the best accommodation money can buy, but do go expecting staff to go out of their way. Really loved my time there.

Rooms are old and furniture and bath facilities are moldy and filthy. Stuff boys don't know how to clean (remains of last guests) and the manager (17 years in the hotel) is not there to supervise – the poor middle-aged guy still sleeps on the floor in the lobby and the rich old owners that live near-by, don't really care...

This is a typicla Indian hotel, average on everything. Rooms are OK, people are helpfull and a good view over the Valley. For a one night stay it is just a bit too long and too steep walk too the center of Shimla , where the shops , restaurants and sights are.

Upon arrival the reception was slightly icy as described by previous contributors. They warmed up a bit but never really cracked a smile. The main grind here was the lack of value for money. The rooms were damp (at the height of summer) and at the price the rooms are sold at, it doesn't add up really. Stayed in Leh...
