“Satisfactory Budget Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

It is a satisfactory budget hotel. Room and toilets were fairly clean and maintained. Geyser was working properly - though it takes some time to get hot water as chilled water takes some time to get heated. Location is excellent - 5 minutes walk from the Ridge towards Jakhoo Hill - though the hotel is a t a very steep height, unless you are very old it's not that difficult to reach the hotel by walk. But the view you get from the hotel corridors will let you forget all the pain. Food is very reasonably priced. If you are not that much concerned about privacy then this is a good budget hotel you can opt for.

I viewed a few rooms before choosing mine and they were all clean and quite large. The staff were very friendly and I met most of them during my stay so I dont understand the previous reviews.

It is a steep walk up to the hotel, but Shimla is built on a ridge where most of the hotels are either up or down hill from the town.

The town itself is fantastic and the views from the hotel are great - try and get top floor as there are power lines in the way of the 1st floor rooms view.

Wake and Bake Cafe opposite the municipal building in town is also well worth a visit - Himanshu, the owner has created a wonderful atmosphere upstairs in his little cafe.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor for a bettter view - also check that the shower works properly - i m...

Please don't stay here. The rooms were filthy (my pillow was covered in human hair and the bed sheet was filthy), the staff were rude and quite aggressive and one member of staff was drunk. It also felt quite unsafe as the rooms face directly onto an outdoor corridor and no one seemed to be policing who walked in and out of the hotel late at night. My mum and I arrived there late in the evening so it was too late to find somewhere else otherwise we would have left immediately. I don't understand how this hotel remains open let alone gets away with charging 1,000 INR per room.

i visited Shimla last year in may with my wife...... and stayed at Dreamland... firstly.. the hotel is ahead of ridge... u have to walk on very steep road to reach there, which itself is a challenge....

then the deluxe regular room booked was too small like a storeroom... reception staff was not polite as well... my change of room request was not entertained... restaurant furniture and ambiance on top floor of hotel was pathetic as well....

Room Tip: dont go by the room pics pasted on their website...

Stayed with family for four nights during August.Location just above Church is ideal though little tough as climb to hotel is quite steep. View from 2nd floor balcony is breathtaking especially during monsoon when sky shows innumerable hues and colors. Absence of good restaurant/food is greatly felt . Staff is generally friendly especially Mr Dogra who seems to have landed from Bollywood. I got our booking through one of the best known Travel Sites which was inclusive of Breakfast but the hotel never offered us any. The Manager of Hotel Dreamland in fact quoted higher rates when I wanted to book directly on their website as compared to what was offered by travel sites which is quite strange. Ideal for young people who can ignore small comforts.

Room Tip: Buy some ear plugs if you are staying at 2nd floor as their kitchen there is meetion place of staff...
