“Amazing view from the hotel!”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

Can enjoy Shimla from the room all day, having amazing tea and food. The service is good, polite and helpful. They will take care for your tour and cab right from the reception.
The view with the sunset from the room is just amazing!
Also there is free wifi.
The hotel is in walking distance from the Mall Road (1 km) but they can arrange a cab to take you until Lakkar Bazar.

Room Tip: The downstair rooms are quite small.

kapil hotel is a delight in itself.. though they don't bargain on the tariff but the rooms and services they provide is top class.. would love to visit again n again :)
it is also a 10 minutes walk away from the ridge.
do not get persuaded by the taxi valas at the bus stand, they give you horrible reviews about kapil hotel. but trust me.. you'll not regret a single penny

Room Tip: our room was 111.. it had a small bathroom

This is a hotel worth staying in Shimla!! Lovely little place!! The room I stayed in was great!
Good sized, very comfortable room very neat and clean.
Very good standards in the room for the price.
A VERY CLEAN BATHROOM !! OH YES !! A VERY CLEAN BATHROOM!! Well lit with added natural light from the window.
Quick roomservice - faster than the star hotels.
Very good location - very close to the Mall road, Lakkar bazar( a 5 min walk), Auckland school and Chapslee school.
Safe and very helpful staff.
In case the power goes out (which is very rare in Shimla) a light comes on automaticly in the room.
Recommend to stay when in Shimla!

We arrived at shimla on a rainy day. We were staying at another hotel where everything was so damp the smell was unbearable. Reading tripadvisor we booked at Kapil on the same day. There the room was in good condition. We asked for some heating (extra cost but available) and some additional room services. The staff were always friendly, helpful and very polite. It was really a nice stay.
