This is a good option if you are in Shimla...
Decently priced, good clean rooms, good food, excellent service (considering it is a government hotel), very courteous staff..... and a good location, with parking facility (which is rare in Shimla).... it is 7 - 10 minutes walk to the Lift taking you to the Mall Road and the Ridge.
The rooms have only the basic amenities.

Should certainly be considered if you plan to stay in Shimla.

Room Tip: carry your own toileries..... Go for superdeluxe rooms for a better view.....

I stayed there for couple of nights in the experience was great.

Location central to shimla with just 10 mins walk from Lift (The Mall). Has good parking space inside/near hotel

Rooms were good in terms of cleanliness and comfort (super deluxe cozy room).

Very courteous and helpful staff. Nice restaurant with good food though some tuning is required in terms for service.

They have good spa with professionals from Kerela offering various therapies. Good value for money spa.

Recommended for families/couples looking for comfortable stay in central Shimla

Room Tip: P.S. - Avoid deluxe rooms. We were booked for one night on this but were disappointed with Bathroo...

Stayed in HHH in Jan 12. Initial apprehensions about service, being a govt run property, proved futile the moment I arrived there. I was six hours early then the scheduled check-in time. It was snowing heavy and I was with 8 yrs old kid. The staff was courteous enough to give us one grade higher room to rest till our room is available and no tip expected. Throughout the service was excellent and off course the hotel is a prime property in shimla. Superb Food and great views. One of the most memorable stay ever...

Room Tip: Higher the better. Some rooms have good night view of Christ Church at the ridge.

I stayed in the hotel in April 2012 for a couple of nights. The booking was done through the website and we did not face any difficulty. Though we did have our initial reservations about staying at the said property, it being a Government one, the services at the hotel did not only meet our expectations but far exceeded it. The Property is situated about 250 mts from the lift on mall road. The room we stayed in had a large window and the view from it was nice. The aspect that it did not have a balcony of its own was a bit of a let down. Otherwise the room was nice, big and comfortable. The food of the hotel was infact the best. we had all our meals at the hotel and found the food to be good on all occasions. the staff of the hotel was also nice, helpful and accommodating.Over all, the experience was nice, and i would not think twice before booking this property again when i were to travel to Shimla

Room Tip: the rooms with the valley view, the deluxe rooms are very nice
