“7 out of 10 to brightlandl in shimla”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2012

we stayed in April for two nights- 28th/29th booked through clear trip.com - good deal indeed- EP
good location close to mall road, railway station. Courteous reception and staff. good information. no misleading about anything. Rooms fairly well maintained and go for valley view rooms.
Negative side: restaurant hardly used and expensive. funny room furnishing with a large mirror over the bed!!

Room Tip: go for valley side - to see the city, sunrise and sun set

My trip was wonderful but bit sad with the hotel. It was beautiful with tasty food, but located bit far from Mall road. Room was small and very cozy with closed window. No air vantilation. Bed was rounded without enough space. Tariff was high as Shimla is hot tourist spot. But yes its not too bad hotel but OK Ok hotel.

This hotel was slected after lot of hopping and door to door research. Recommended for family visit, not for people who like solitude and open surroundings. The staff is very good, and the whole hotel is managed very professionally. Worth the money spent.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

We had a tiny room with perhaps the grubbiest sheets I've seen in India, and that's saying something. There were no top sheets, and I'm guessing that they don't wash the blankets very often, so we were snuggled up into someone else's smell. The room smelled of mould and the staff gamely sprayed lots of air freshener around, but that didn't last long.

There was no heating of any kind, and even in April, we were cold. It was 5 degrees outside, and not much warmer inside. There is only hot water between 7am and 10pm, but at least there was plenty of that.

We ordered snacks in the room, but it seemed that nearly everything was 'unavailable'. When our order eventually came, it was OK, but not great. Breakfast on the first day was dismal, but on the second day there were omelettes, paranthas, porridge, cereal, toast, tea and coffee. Bizarrely, we were telephoned each morning at about 8:30am and told that breakfast was served on the 6th floor and 'please come now'. Do they only do this for foreigners?

Don't be fooled by their description of a 'terrace garden'. It's a room entirely enclosed in glass, with a bunch of indoor plants arranged around tables. Some hotel rooms open onto this glass room.

It's a long, steep walk to the Mall, but then I guess everywhere in Shimla is a long, steep walk. There's no wifi in this hotel and the staff were unable to suggest where we might find a connection in Shimla. Surprisingly, we found a great spot on the Mall, in a frozen food shop that also sold hot coffee. Now there's a combination.

Its a good hotel with good connectivity to mall of shimla.The rooms are good,clean and comfatable.The view from rooms is excellent exp valley facing rooms.The food is good and the garden restaurent is a great place to sip a hot cup of tea with snacks.The staff is good and helpful.Overall its a very good hotel near the mall yet away from the croweded bazaar.The parking facility is an additional plus point.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the hills esp on the upper floors are best.
