“Nice Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

the best thing about the hotel is its location. you can stroll around the mall endlessly and then at the end reach the hotel easily without and climb up or down. This is just 5 minutes walking behind the church.

It was a nice experience as per the budget. Although they need to work on their food. The service, hospitality was good, rooms and toilets were clean. We took cab from hotel desk only to have a trip of kufri, naldera, mashobra. It was also gud, driver was helping, nice and guided us about different places as well. Overall gud experience.

after Manali visit we were at shimla in hotel Doegar, approx. 200 meters from Mall road of Shimla, and loacted at the heart of the city. hospitality wise hotel is good, other services are good except food. food is average in taste, outside hotel food may be preferred. rooms are not very big but are comfortable. our room was having mirror on every side of walls making the room to look like PALACE ROOM. this hotel is close to famous Jakhoo temple of Hanuman ji. very easily approachable from the old bus stand. (new bus stand is there in Shimla since 4 months and tourist have to come to old bus stand or to the Lift to move up to the Mall road hotels.)

First of all, keep this in mind that hotels in Shimla are costly. Rooms claimed to be super delux by a hotel is actually just a good room. During peak season if tariff of a room is anything above Rs 2000, you can assume that it will be a good room. But nothing great. Rooms under Rs 1500 (if any) can be the ones at the backside of the hotel and a bit suffocating. Also remember if you are staying at Mall or above ridge, then cars can charge additional Rs 200-300 to pick you up from hotel (that is only if car is allowed in front of your hotel).

Hotel Doegar is located a bit higher than the Christ Church (and Ridge). To reach this hotel from Ridge, you need to walk uphill for 8 min, while coming down to Ridge is obviously faster and easier. The location is quite peaceful near the jakhu road. Overall stay in the hotel was pleasant. The staff is courteous and the managers are somewhat helpful. Room was clean, though small, with a nice attached bathroom. Though we took a super delux room (one of the best rooms in the hotel), but there was no significant view from the room. It had no balcony. Room was a bit small for even two people, but had a LCD TV on the wall. Our room was on the top floor adjacent to a shared terrace. The high point of this hotel is the view from its terrace. Its just awesome !!! It snowed heavily on the day we stayed in this hotel. This made the view from terrace just breathtaking. If you plan to stay at this hotel you should try to take a room attached to the terrace. I doubt about the view from other rooms at the lower floors. Food is good and moderately costly.

Reaching the hotel from bus stand / taxi stand / station can be a bit tedious if you decide to walk. A car will take Rs 350 to drop you at the hotel from station.

Govt employees should try to book Hotel Grand. It is wonderfully located at Kali Temple Rd. Its so near from The Mall and Ridge, but yet so peacefully located. Though I don't know how the facilities are there.
