“Worst Hotel to stay in”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2011

Hotel is located at the Ridge very close to mall road. Himachal registered vehicles are only allowed up to the hotel. Rooms are very badly ventilated. Rooms are very dirty. Mattress stinks very bad. Blanket is not washed since ages. Electrical sockets are pulled out and are very dangerous for small children. If you happen to visit shimla please dont stay in Hotel Shiwalik, it will spoil your vacation

First of all, keep this in mind that hotels in Shimla are costly. Rooms claimed to be super delux by a hotel is actually just a good room. During peak season if tariff of a room is anything above Rs 2000, you can assume that it will be a good room. But nothing great. Rooms under Rs 1500 (if any) can be the ones at the backside of the hotel and a bit suffocating. Also remember if you are staying at Mall or above ridge, then cars can charge additional Rs 200-300 to pick you up from hotel (that is only if car is allowed in front of your hotel).

Hotel Shiwalik Regency is located a bit higher than the Christ Church (and Ridge). To reach this hotel from Ridge, you need to walk uphill for 10min, while coming down to Ridge is obviously faster and easier. The location is quite peaceful near the jakhu road. Jakhu will be few minutes from this hotel by car. Overall stay in the hotel was pleasant. The staff is courteous and the managers are helpful. Room was clean with a nice attached bathroom (with a bathtub). We took a super delux room and hence the room was on the front side with a balcony giving a view of the valley. Though the room could have been a bit larger, but it is actually just ok for 2 people. The view might not be great, but it's not bad either. Try to take a room on the top most two floors to get a better view of the valley. Monkeys may sometimes pass through your balcony, but that's a common phenomenon in Shimla. Food is served at the room. The food is good and not costly. If you book car from this hotel, you may get a bit discount from the market price.

Reaching the hotel from bus stand / taxi stand / station can be a bit tedious if you decide to walk. A car will take Rs 350 to drop you at the hotel from station.

Govt employees should try to book Hotel Grand. It is wonderfully located at Kali Temple Rd. Its so near from The Mall and Ridge, but yet so peacefully located. Though I don't know how the facilities are there.

Hotel is far away from victory tunnel,where the delhi bus will drop you. As there is no vheicle is alloued in upper shimla so you have to walk on foot. It will take 20 min from victory tunnel.But it is very close to the famous Christ Church of shimla. So that you can spend a lot of time in the evening on famous mall road. the stuff behaviour was very good. Room are so good,but it is not like the picture as they paste on there website.

The Hotel is located near the ridge, has big rooms & parking facility. The food quality and the service is average. The Hotel lacks proper Buisiness centre, gym, spa, restaurant and conderence Hall. The Hotel has two sets of rooms - one in the front side, which is costly and one at the back side.

first of all THE RIDGE in address is misleading (and staff there accepted that this is written to attract tourists) .this hotel is on lower jakhu road which is about 500 mtrs from church at the ridge and that too uphill and you have to walk only to reach there otherwise take a taxi which will reach there in half an hour from alternate long route.if you are going for bachelors party then it is ok ,with family it is difficult.....other thing is there was no restaurant there though they said it is under renovation but there was no place for it......rooms are damp smelly and congested you hardly find any place to walk again for family it is difficult.......room service starts after 8:30 in the morning ,they will not pick phone before it so you have to go to nearby shop around 300 mtrs away to buy milk or tea for children and yourself.rooms dont have air conditioners or fans i understand that for 8 months in year they dont require it but what about other 4 months ..yes it was off season when we visited but i can not find any reason for black fungus grown on curtains .. so overall they dont spend a little part on maintenance which they should..
