“Peaceful Hotel”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

Hotel Dreamland is ideally located in the city of Shimla. It is a bit away from the Mall Road which will give you a quieter stay away from the regular street noise. The staffs are also helpful and were able to provide vehicles next to the hotel gates at reasonable price. The room in which I stayed was sufficiently big enough for two persons. Food is a bit expensive but as long as you can walk outside and try the local cuisines, it is within the budget. The hotel is located slightly uphill and so there is a walk uphill. In the night and in the morning, the view of the mountains is spectacular. Be aware of the timings of the lift that operates in the Mall road. If closed, coming to the hotel from the station or bus stand can be a good walk.

We stayed here for 1 night after reading it’s review in the Rough Guide thinking it would be pretty good, how wrong were we! We travelled from Mcleod Gang and stayed in some very basic places so we’re not fussy.

The view is the only good thing about this place, the beds were dirty, and the blanket on the bed was covered in hair. The bathroom was beyond shabby and smelt quite bad, with no hot water.

It’s located just above the ridge, which is a very steep walk and hard with back packs. It seems over priced for the quality of the rooms, we paid half the price in Mcleod Gang for an equally good view. We moved to the Le Royale which for information is about 50 metres to the right of Dreamland up the hill a bit further. (However, we met some other UK travellers whilst there who said the YMCA further up the hill is absolutely fabulous which we now wished we’d gone to!)

Overall we found Shimla very unfriendly and unwelcoming towards westerners and wouldn’t recommend going for longer than 1 or 2 nights – just long enough to take a ride on the toy train. The views from the ridge are amazing but there isn’t much more.

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.
