Do you want to have excellent accommodation with superb views topped off with hosts that are caring and on-hand to give local travel advise for Shimla? Go to Aapo Aap, we were a party of 6 and we were so happy with the services rendered by Shivi & family. Good local contacts ranging from a calm taxi service through to white water rafting all at reasonable rates and qualified individuals. Food at the homestay was excellent as was the company. Without a doubt, THE place we stayed at during our 4 week travels in India.

So glad we found Aapo Aap Home Stay,. Far enough away from Shimla to enjoy the peace and quiet and take in the local surrounds, and close enough to catch the bus (100 metres from house) up to Shimla to enjoy the views and shopping. The hospitality of our host Shivi and his family, and the useful advice given over shared meals (excellent food) was great, a homestay not to be missed.

On our recent trip to India with our two teenage boys, this would have to rank as our top stay.
Beautiful house and rooms, stunning views, great home cooked food and delightful company.
We could not have been made more welcome. Shivi took great time and effort to make our stay enjoyable, and his general advice on local attractions was a great help and enhanced our stay. This really is a proper homestay. We met with Shivi's lovely parents and spent evenings in the lounge chatting over coffee. They even gave my wife a birthday present before we left. A lovely thought which really touched her.
The distance from the centre of Shimla is no disadvantage as Shivi arranges collection from the train station. The views are stunning, the location quiet and the drive to and from town gives you sight of Indian village life you might otherwise miss.
In short, this place ticks all the boxes and will stay with us as a wonderful memory of our trip to India.

We stayed at Aapo Aap on our "way" to Dharamshala. We liked the views and homey feeling so much that we didn't really leave to visit the main area of Shimla, something we don't regret at all. Shivi and his family were very warm and hospitable. The food was excellent and the comfort and cleanliness oustanding. By far, one of the best places we stayed in all of our 2 months in India. Definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Book the suite or deluxe room- you won't be disappointed!
