“Above average certainly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

Stayed at HHH last 2 nights. The location of this hotel is simply awesome. There is a short cut from the rear of the hotel which takes you straight to the Mall Road, which is more or less the epicenter of shimla. I found the check in to be fast and the rooms were tidy and ready. The only problem was that since I was traveling with parents and kids I had to request for some quilts which took a long time to organize. I guess the house keeping staff was not too keen on providing the same. The staff at the front desk was extremely helpful and got everything organized.

Food at the hotel though pricey but was very tasty. Hotel is normally booked the entire season and therefore I recommend that advance booking be made.

P.S. just in case you donot want to walk all the way from The Mall lift you can Take a dropping from tha taxi stand to the hotel for Rs. 100. :-)

Room Tip: We stayed on the 4th floor and found very good views from the room.

Inspite of being a Government hotel the staff was courteous and polite. The general cleanliness and maintenance is good. It is located just 500m from the lift which takes you to the Mall where no vehicles are allowed. Lifts are just a walking distance away. Has lot of space for parking your vehicles which is a luxury on a hill station. The food is good.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms in the (New) main block which houses the reception. The rooms facing the mall give...

Best Place for all seasons fitting into Budget of all with very nice Breakfast and meals. I had stayed not less than 8-10 0ccassions in last 20 years.!! Going daily twice to Mall is a excellent walking experience . Sunset is to be watched fro roos with windows facing west.

Room Tip: Choose rooms with windows facing West or North

This hotel is located just beside the Lifts to The Mall which is an exelently convinient location since the approach is motorable with ample parking.You can easily walk to the 2 lifts that can take you up to the Mall on the Mall Road which is the heart of Simla.No vehicles are allowed on the Mall road strictly. Since this is a Goverment Hotel you wont be pestered and by touts hovering all over Simla.

Room Tip: Try to take the Delux rooms and you can alwas book online at hptdc.gov.in .

We went on a weekend trip and after a lot of search this was the best hotel with reasonable price. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and well maintained and the view from the room was terrific... The staff was very co-operative and polite. It is quite near to the lift and bus stand...The best part was the food quality..the food preparation was awesome..hats off to the cook...We had a very good time there...Keep up the good work..A special mention of Mr. Chauhan of house keeping, he was very helpful n made us all feel like home. Highly recommended.
