Let me start by saying that I find that hotels in Shimla are extremely over-priced, especially during tourist season. Even a very modest accommodation far from the town centre could cost a bomb. Weekends are also expensive since Shimla is within driving distance of Chandigarh and Delhi, so the flocks descend on weekends too. One ought to bear this in mind while looking to book a stay in Shimla.

I travel to Shimla every few months on work and I prefer staying at Himland East because is it within walking distance of some of the offices I visit for my work.

Reservation: Reservations to Himland East can be done over phone or by writing an email to them. I have been going here for the last 5 years now and found them pretty responsive. Remember to ask for the 20% off-season discount if you are travelling when it is not vacation season. I have noticed that you can also get the rooms cheap on some travel portals now. Check all options before you make up your mind.

Service: The hotel staff are good and generally help you with most requests that you may have. If you reach Shimla by the overnight Volvo from Delhi, you're likely to reach Shimla by 5.30 a.m. Himland (and most other hotels) have a Check-In at noon, so that becomes a concern. Usually the staff have allotted me a room by 7.00 a.m. but this depends on room availability.

Room: The rooms are clean and just sufficient for twin-sharing. They do have an electric heater during winter. The bathroom was also clean, with running hot water.

Food: The restaurant is good and you can order standard North Indian fare which is well prepared. The restaurant of the adjoining Himland West hotel is equally good.

Activities: The hotel is close to Talland. You can actually walk to Mall road, which is about 2 km from here. The walk to Mall road is uphill, so you can consider walking back if walking uphill is difficult. You can also hail one of the local buses that go to the lift (to Mall road) easily by walking about 50 m outside the hotel.

Overall: The hotel is descent and suits my requirement for work. As a tourist, this could be a place to consider since it is not very far from Mall road. They also have limited parking (the biggest pain in Shimla) which is a big advantage. If you intend to spend most time on Mall road, then this is a good option because places on Mall road are equally pricey and may require you to walk up beyond a point since they are in the 'no-car' zone.

Neat n clean with efficent staff good food but overall its way to overcharged for all value it gives. Being on road side in other offices nearby its bit noisy at times.
Its more of a business hotel n being overcharged its not great value for money ...
