If you are willing to witness the majestic views of snow capped in mountains then there can be no better place then Hotel Classic. The Rooms are very clean and fully maintained. Staff is also very good and helpful.

Been there in October , 2015. A cozy cove amidst nature with an uniterrupted view of snow capped mountains . The warm behaviour of the staff really made our three day stay homely one. The small lawn was enjoyed by the kids. They arranged for luxury car for sightseeing and chandigarh drop at very reasonable rates. Their warm hospitality really... More

If you are at Shimla and if you are willing to witness the majestic view of snow-capped mountains along with experiencing the coziness of the room then Hotel Classic would be your best choice. It's a good hotel (a budget one) and the manager, Mr. Negi, is always there (along with other hotel staffs) to appease your needs. Strategically located,... More

I stayed here for a night with a friend. Room are clean and the view was very nice. Staff was friendly and helpful. There is no wifi. Prices are fair, and location is not super central, but still ok. Definitely a good solution, but for sure not a fantastic one.

Stayed here for 4 nights with friends. Try taking room numbers 11 or 12 for the most beautiful views from the room and the balcony. The staff is limited but courteous and the location is a beautiful 10 mins walk from the centre(the ridge) It's a budget hotel so don't expect much except a beautiful view, serenity and peace

We didn't pre-book this accommodation, just turned up. We paid about rupees 950 per night, which is pretty expensive for India standards we thought.. But we fell in love with our clean room and the view! (Attached some photos) There is no wifi, but a there was a tv with lots of channels. They have a laundry service, room service,... More

Rooms are very basic and old, be sure to get a look at a few, some really smell a lot because smoking is allowed inside. For the rest, it's a good deal for the money. The people who run the hotel are very friendly and prepared to help you where they can.

I've already stayed twice at this hotel, which is reasonably priced by (the high) Shimla standards. I paid 940 Rps. The room is small, but confortable. The TV has BBC World which has disappeared at most places in India. Of course, you can see hundreds of customers have passed through those rooms already. It is a bit away from the... More

Yes we were tired after a long day from Delhi, and yes we were still finding our feet in India but the beds were hard, the pillows harder still and the sheets, towels and bedding were not as clean as they should be.
