“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

We found this place based on reviews on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. We stayed in the family room for 2 nights and enjoyed it very much.

It is within walking distance of the main mall. Shopping and restaurants are all located along the mall.

Our hotel room was clean and a decent size. The staff were very accommodating when we asked for extra sheets and towels. The beds and pillows were comfortable.

The shower is the first one we have had in India that is enclosed so that the whole bathroom floor doesn't get wet when you use it. Fantastic.

Our room had a beautiful view over the whole valley.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. When I checked out I had forgotten to mention that we hadn't received something from our room service order. When I did mention it they quickly subtracted it from the bill without question. Appreciated that.

Ordered breakfasts from the room service menu and enjoyed the dishes we chose.

I can definitely recommend choosing this hotel to stay at when you visit Shimla. If you need directions it is just before you come to the Radisson. Everyone seems to know where that hotel is. Just follow directions to it and then keep your eyes open. It is just around the corner before you come to the Radisson.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view over the valley. That way you can enjoy the sunsets. We stayed in the fam...

We stayed in two different rooms; standard and deluxe. Both were super clean and comfortable, neither had a view or large window. The deluxe room was bigger and decorated a little more. Hot water was available. The location was very good, within easy walking distance of the Mall - 10mins uphill. The staff were very friendly. Kapil is good value for money and I would not hesitate to reccomend.

We struggled to find somewhere in advance from either the lonely planet or from tripadvisor that was affordable. Hotel kapil is excellent in so many ways: location, beautiful views from the rooms, good breakfasts with room service available. Best of all it was excellent value for money. The only drawback was the level of knowledge of staff (for example, they said we could ski when in fact we couldn't). No complaints really and a great choice

This hotel in lakkad bazaar offered really neat and clean rooms with all amenities. Staff cooperative, food good and quick. Avail their transportation facility, its the best.Mall is at walking distance but you have to climb up a few steps and the road to mall not so steep but tiring.Rooms are bit small but with huge windows and good view and the cleanliness offered you won't mind it. Deluxe suite is best room.

Room Tip: select deluxe suite though bit costly but the best room in hotel.
