Mussoorie is an excellent escape from the city life of India. It definitely has one of the best views I have seen since I've been in India and hands down best temperature. It is a (relatively) quiet town, clean, with many great shops and a large range of food options.
Hotel Shiva is in a great location, just blocks from the main road of the city. The hotel staff will help you with all requests, and if you are sick, they will even go out and get you tissues! I was unhappy in the first room they put me in, but when I asked to be moved it was no issue at all.
The rooms vary in style and when they were remodeled. My first room was very damp feeling with old, old carpeting but had a beautiful view of the mountains. My new room had beautiful hard wood floors and was much more modern, but had a view of a brick wall. Compared to other hotels I have been in, the bathrooms are in great condition with a separate area for showers with a shower curtain. Because of the climate here, it has a tendency to feel damp in some of the rooms and some have mentioned mold in the damper areas.
My favorite part about Hotel Shiva is the food. The kitchen staff never stop making new and delicious food for all meals.
