Very close (2-3 minute walk) from Kalka railway station. That is the only good thing about this hotel. The staff were rude, slow and unhelpful. Rooms were barely clean, very worn out, stained bedding, freezing cold and very loud. Windows don't appear to actually shut properly so sounds like you are in the street with the fighting dogs, shouting me...

It is not for enjoying your stay, but to have shelter until your train starts to wherever. Not very clean, noisy and cold but still very close to the train station and two restaurants. I wouldnt recommend to stay in Kalka though.

Of all the Indian places we stayed at this one took the cake. The rudest owner extorting extra money to take a bicycle to the room. Indian arrogance came out in the most aggressive manner. Bad mannered with worse english he teaches his staff the same bad manners. Rooms were adequate but dirty. Hot water, forget it.

Kalka isn't a tourist resort, I doubt that any of the hotels are that great, but the room lacked any heating (February, marble floors, it was cold). It was...adequate, conveniently close to the station. But it definitely wasn't great. No hot water, no toilet paper (or towels). Not welcoming at all. The 'fast' food place two stores up was very...

“Avoid rooms opening to the main road and check the windows, especially the ones with the cooler outside- any cracks and you will have a very noisy night to contend with.”
