Description on Hotel Sites does not match reality. If you are looking to stay during the cold months give it a miss unless you are from the Arctic-No Heating. Electric heater needed and take a hot water bottle.
Check room before you accept it including the bed. Our bed was actually ok.
Hot Water was intermittent also.
Restaurant …. ‘Eating Area’ very cold, did not try any meals as breakfast said enough.

Front room with view required, higher the better, as rear rooms face a retaining wall.

Very expensive for what you get when compared with other places.

Hotel victory is no doubt budget hotel. Food was being arranged through Mall Road hotel. Eventhough Hotel Victory is claiming to be on Mall road, it's not on Mall road. It's back side road (very narrow & can't be used in dark climate) is nearer to mall road.

The hotel is located just near Busstand and railway station where the iconic shimla train will complete its journey. Also, the mall which is a shopping big street in shimla is just walkable distance from the hotel.

Even though the hotel is small but not lacking any basic requirements. The staff are nice and helpful. You can have a spectacular ariel view of shimla if you get front room.

Rooms are below average. The person at the front desk at night is a very good and helpful person. Person at the travel desk is worst. Don't book taxi with them as they will try to loot you. We had horrible experience with travel desk and the driver was terrible. Overall a bad experience.

I stayed with my friends n family for a couple of days and enjoyed the great hospitality , courteous ,welcoming staff behavior.
My booking was done online initially. Later, I directly approached Mr.Tushar, owner of the hotel, and extended my family stay along with friends.
I recommend you all to call Mr Tushar, and he will guide you for a place to visit and make sure u r stay is comfortable. He has given us rooms for early check-in as a gesture.
Mr Tushar phone no.+91 96252 40000.
Contact him for the best itenary n hotel suit room booking

Please read other poor and terrible reviews and you will find many similarity. Reached shimla on April 13th 2013 with wife. The vendors will pull you to see the room. Rooms are okay. Bathroom are not well managed. drain pipes are visible in wash rooms. They will ask you for Rs 2000/- plus for one night stay. Bargain well. It is not worth 1200/- when you book with local vendor. We paid Rs.1800/- per night
Important- they have link with a local tour company just below their hotel named "SWASTIK TRAVELS" PREVIOSULY "KANWAR TRAVEL". The hotel staff will try his best to book a cab through him and will assure you of best rates. They will charge you Rs 2500/- for TATAPANI trip and Rs.2500/- for local sight seeing. BEWARE- tatpani trip cost only Rs.1200/- and local sight seeing Rs.600/- may go up to only Rs.900/- for all sight seeing. DONOT BUY TRAVEL PACKAGE FROM THEM. Go to MALL road and you will find various taxi service people offering you reasonable service
After returing from first trip and felt cheated, we said no for other trip. The travel agency people called us down to fight. But dont get afraid slap them as I did. If sistuation worsen call police from MALL ROAD. They will support you. Hotel and travel agency both belong to one family. DONOT BOOK THIS HOTEL. Instead move to mall road and you can find various hotels with in your budget and with great view.
Hotel will tell you that MALL ROAD is only 100 meter from their hotel from back side. But just it once. It is dangereous and frightfull in night. We had to shift very next day to Hotel BrighView which is couple of yards from hotel victory since we just wanted to get freshed up.

We just landed at Shimla near victory tunnel and saw this hotel. We are two women. We just wanted to see room and book if we like. The guys at the reception are were very overbearing instead of being polite and professional. One of them was even blatant enough to say that we must take the room. As the aggressive methods didn't work with us, another guy tried the polite route. By this time, we have had enough and left. The place is definitely not safe for women traveling on their own. We got all wrong bad vibes.
