Visited simla for valentine day. Stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights. Basic accommodation. Don't expect anything fancy. Rooms are clean, staff is warm, food is great. Staff tries to take care of your every need. Best part is, it's ON THE MALL ROAD JUST BEST TO THE MALL ROAD LIFT. Warm water in bathroom is available for full day, extra pillows, towels, etc, can be asked for. They do charge for the room heater though. Overall an amazing experience. Prefer the ground floor rooms as the view is breathtaking. We were given the option of a bigger room in basement and a smaller room on ground floor. I chose the ground floor room and it was a better decision.

This property is located just at the beginning of the famous mall road, and bags all points for this location! Just 100 meters walk from the tourism lift and you are there.. no steep climbs! Talking about rooms, super deluxe room is quite good, extremely spacious and comfy! No valley views from the room, but awesome views from tha balcony jus outside their pathway which leads to the rooms! Food.. lipsmacking and an awesome variety to chose from! I especially liked their kadhai paneer! There is no wifi in this hotel, but you dont miss that as you can roam around mall road in your leisure time and explore shimla in the best way without any hassles if you are staying here! Staff is very nice and great hospitality from their end! Kudos to rock sea for making our stay comfortable and looking forward to another visit!

We, 4 families stayed at Hotel Rock Sea for 2 nights (13 & 14 March, 2017). Sorry for the delayed review. The hotel is an average one, specially suited for budget travellers, at an excellent location, just two minutes level walk from the upper side of the Lift. Easy walk to reach The Mall. The hotel is situated just in front of Hotel Prashant. We initially planned to stay at Prashant which seems to me a better one; but as we did not get room there, Mr. Bobby, the owner of the property, arranged our stay at Rock Sea. Rooms are a bit small with just average bathroom. However, the valley view from the window of the room and balcony just outside the room was awesome. The food was not upto the mark. But, that is not a problem, because there are lots of restaurants available nearby. Booking, check in and check out were all absolutely smooth. I would recommend this hotel for short stay of budget travellers.
