“Cold, not inspiring hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

We asked for a room for three and they told us that they only had the deluxe room available. The next day we found out that the hotel was very empty. Not very friendly and lying!
the room was old and very cold, but they didnt want us to give a heater for free in the "deluxe" room.

Would not stay here again!

I had been there in December 2011 with my wife. To be very frank the pictures appearing on the hotel's website are somewhat misleading, infact, the picutre of the "super deluxe room" that too at a comparitively low rate was one of the factors that led me to book the hotel. Thoough the room had everything from television to a good warm "razai" (blanket), yet, everything was shabby and seemed to be in continous use for ages without being replaced or cleaned even once. The room heater was not working properly (though I was charged Rs.200/= per day for the heater). The Bathroom was useable and clean. One positive aspect about the hotel was its location. The proximity of the hotel to the mall was an added advantage, however, this aspect would really seem challenging for the elderly guests. Later on I found out that there were far better hotels available elsewhere in Shimla at the same rate which I was paying in Dreamland. However, the location of the hotel has its own price. I have to mention that the staff was extremly good (especially one Mr.Dogra!!) and the food was good too. Overall, it would be advisable, not to make a decision by looking at the hotels website, but, on a whole, dreamland is a standard budget hotel specially during the peak season.

I spent 2 nights here recently in March 2012. The hotel has good views over the hills, and has good staff/guides. Unfortunately the rest is not good. The rooms were freezing overnight with nothing more than a dirty duvet for extra warmth. No Heater. Bathroom was not clean. No food available and no Wifi. Steep walk to the hotel from the Mall/Ridge.

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.
