“Experience of Hote De Park Stay in Shimla in May 2012”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

We reached the hotel around 2 hours early but altough the rooms were vacant they didn't allow early checkin. We have to wait in the reception area only. There is no staff in the reception to welcome you. Manager comes after 12:00 PM. Somehow we got the room 15 minutes before 12:00 PM (Check-in) time. The room was not as per the expectation and pictures shown on the website. There was no towel, soaps, toilet paper. The bedsheet and pillow covers were dirty. The quilt was also quite old and dirty. We ordered one extra blanket in hope of getting cleaned one but it was in fact more bad smelling and dirty.
They do not offer filter water, they call tanker and just filter the water by cloth while emptying the water tanker to their underground reservior.

It seems that management is looking to shut it down very soon with their poor service in all the area.
Location is 5Km from Shimla, thus you have to catch the taxi, bus or your own car whenever going to Shimla Mall Road. No good view from the hotel you can only see the traffic on the road moving.

I would not suggest this hotel from any perspective to anyone, simply waste of money.

Room Tip: Bad choice, no no

The experience at the hotel was not good. It doesn't look hygenic. Food quality and room service is bad. Restaurant attached to it also looks morose and it is located outside Shimla. If you are going to stay here its gonna be difficult for you to go to mall road as it is difficult to find a parking space near to that.

we booked our room through yatra.com, room was not up to the mark ,in very bad shape, no electricity for hours,no power back up, cable connection is of poor quality, interrupted and staff there is highly uncooperative. so many hidden charges with no explanation. To get taxi from the hotel is another difficulty we faced and no cooperation from the hotel staff. i recommend think so many times before check in .

We had a OK experience. Although had higher expectations. The service was good but the food wasn't. The room was dull and bathroom was not very clean. We complained and got it cleaned.
Anyways we had good time in Shimla. You have to get a cab or bus to go the main Mall Area. However the place is quieter and view from room is great. I dont think I would go here again.

Hotel located about 5 km from Shimla with adequate car parking. The Hotel makes attempts at being clean, but the staff behaviour leaves much to be improved. Also, the food on offer is not too tasty..I would recommend this hotel if you are just needing to stay a night or so, but make sure you eat out!
