It is good value for money. Direct booking with the management allowed a good discount, so the price was reasonable. The room was good & comfortable. The view from the window was good. All the facilities promised were there, and we were satisfied with the service. It is not too far from the Mall, though it was easier to take...

It's a cozy hotel with very good faculty. Mall road is walkable distance from here. The hospitality was very good. Om Prakash was the faculty member who coordinated with me over my journey from Manali to Shimla. He was very courteous. He arranged for cab to pick us up from Shimla bypass road. Hotel has free WiFi, blankets with heaters,...

We booked the Kapil seeing the good reviews on Tripadvisor. It is a good hotel in a good location but very basic. No restaurant so have to order room service for breakfast and other meals if you want. Room service is reasonable, ok but not the same as having a breakfast buffet. We upgraded to the Penthouse suite on the...

The first two are toooooo expensive too choose, I mean does not make sense to spend 10k for one day and then this place is perfect, book the Balcony room (only one room...

It's a small boutique hotel in a small road and we were not sure of what awaits us even when we arrived. But I can't think of anything that we would lack in this hotel. The hotel doesn't have an elevator but not a difficult climb. The staff helped us load and unload the bags from the car and also...
