We have stayed in suit room. The room are very big air conditioned, they provide heater on winter session but it was very small. The hotel located at shimla enterance. They have complementry breakfast and dinner tariff. Food taste ok but no more veraities. The hotel have no accomodation for drivers they need to sleep on car so drivers feel uncomfortable on next day driving. The room rates are ok compare with other hotels.

Room Tip: The room tariffs are depending with View point.

This hotel looks quite grand from the outside. However the rooms are terrible. Dirty and smelly. Bathroom had mould on the ceiling, and ceiling was falling down. The room was unheated, heat provided by a one bar electric fire from the 1970s, that sparked in a most dangerous manner. The breakfast was the worst food i have eaten in India. Avoid!!!

The Quality Inn Himadev is not a four star hotel by anyone’s standards, it is best classed as a budget hotel. It is not in Shimla but a 10 minute taxi ride from the railway station. On the plus side,though, we were made very welcome by the extremely courteous staff, in fact, nothing was too much trouble even to the point of finding us an electric fire ( ancient but effective) as it was rather chilly in the rooms in the evenings and early mornings. Our room was huge with a sofa and armchairs as well as everything else you would expect.Unfortunately there is only hot water early mornings and late evenings
The restaurant is particularly good with a good choice of excellent local dishes and a more limited choice of non-indian food. The breakfast was good, the restaurant manager was very helpful and arranged for us to have anything we wanted such as omelettes,scrambled egg and hot buttered toast
In general the hotel was care-worn and rather shabby but had a great atmosphere and the staff went out of their way to look after us, even allowing me to use their own business computer to access the internet as the wifi was not working. I would happily recommend this place to any travellers who do not want to stay in one of the higher priced places in the town. .

Worst hotel I've ever stayed in my entire trip to India. The rooms are not maintained properly. The walls are mouldy and there's mouldy smell. The bathrooms are in bad conditions. The walls outside are stained. The food is bad. Tour agents should just stop booking clients into this hotel. Very very disappointed.
