Its was good and value for money, no frills and no hi-fi stuffs but good and tidy. Had to stay because of non-availability in other hotels in shimla due to peak season. It is good option for people who just need a place to sleep at night.

Room service was good (with Slight delays; however that was tolerable as the person who was serving in the room had a pleasant smile).
Room was just OK with minimum required amenities like TV, Hot running water, clean Bed Sheets and Towel etc.
The Main Advantage was the Location. It is just a 5-10 minutes walk from the Ridge or Mall Road. You can easily return to hotel during night time.
The amenities provided were good; however can be improved. (Also we can’t expect Posh Amenities in RS. 687 per Day)
Hotel location and the Room Charges were just the Best. The Toilet was not that much clean.
The overall Food quality was good. Many options on the Menu Card were not available though.

We are member of Youth Hostel of Association of India so i planned to stay here in Shimla. I had booked my rooms directly through hostel.

We got good discount too. Rooms are good. service was nice. Food at restaurant is not too good. Better to avoid it. We reached hotel midnight at 2.30 becasue we were stuck in traffic near fatak towards shimla. Finally we reached hotel and managed to get some soft drink. Next morning another member was ready to welcome us. (ie. Monkeys in balcony) so be careful with your cameras and mobile. mall road is walkable distance from this hotel. Mall road is great for evening walk. Just too good.
