Great location, courteous staff!
Located at just 10min walk from the Lakkar Bazaar and 15min from the Ridge and Mall road , the hotel was away from the hustle of the Mall road and at the same time just a walk away from it. The staff was very polite and courteous. The room offered a great view of the valley. Hotel has great facilities.

Room with a view
This hotel is a little away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of town but is all the better for that. It was welcoming and comfortable. We booked a superior room with mountain view which was well worth it.The room rates are very reasonable. The room was very comfortable, clean and the shower was great, powerful hot and clean. Staff were pleasant and attentive and in house food was good, portions large so don’t over order! . I would highly recommend this hotel, it is a quality hotel at a very reasonable price. Would be happy if all hotels in India met this standard!

Five minutes walk from Mall Road. Met at the railway station by a (pre-ordered) taxi, so no problem finding the hotel on arrival in Shimla ;-). Breakfast (chola bhatura) just like home-cooked (delivered by room service, since no dining room) - room service rapid, friendly, efficient. Solar-heated hot water ran out in my room, my friend next door had plenty :-(, so 4 not 5 stars. I've paid 5x as much for a worse experience!

Good enough, poor breakfast
The staff were good, room was fine. Didn't like nowhere for breakfast, served in the room. Breakfast very poor, in fact one day made me very ill, I will spare you the description. I also wouldn't book with Expedia again due to the the perpetual bombardment of emails. If I want to review somewhere, let me decide
