It's on a steep hike with very little scope for a car to stop by for getting luggage down . Rooms are decent ,views are great,linen was clean . Wardrobe etc shows signs of wear and tear. Wifi works only at the lobby . No parking for cars but walkable 1.5 kms from mall road.

Though it is half an hour walk from the city centre it is Home away from home. Great food, great views and very friendly staff. Will definitely recommend. The owners were friendly and had a a good chat with them. Also the restaurant was a great place to exchange travel stories.

We came there directlly from the train station, since it was rated as "TOP" by our guidebook. Location is pretty bad, far from everything but the train station. Rooms were nice, as they are in many other places around, and prices were much higher than avarage. Staff was not super friendly. Hence, we decided to look for another place.

The Himachal Museum is no great shakes, especially given that you have to do a really hard, steep climb to get to it, but I did discover two nice restaurants in the process. The first is the Peterhof, where I had a beer and French fries (you can find the review in Tripadvisor) and the other was Spars Lodge, where...

This place is amazing. The view, entrance and the location is worth every penny you spent to get there. Service is good too. Rooms are small but cozy and the woodwork is amazing. The walk from Chaura Maidan till this point is the real beauty.

Ok, it's expensive compared to the rest of India, but so is all the places in Shimla. Our room with a double bed (comfy) and a double-bed-sofa (not so comfy) were tidy and not so small. Shower and toilet was clean and ok. 2300 rs/night. The view from the room is to die for! The owner is very helpfull. He...

We arrived in Shimla around 8am from Delhi. The overnight bus ride was fairly comfortable. Not having made our hotel bookings, we decided to check out Spars Lodge, a budget hotel recommended by Lonely Planet. On alighting from the bus, we took a cab to the hotel which was situated off the main bazaar area, up a steep hill. The...

We stayed here for three nights and were not impressed at all. We got the cheapest room they offer (1409 RS/$23 US - not cheap at all but same prices all over Shimla) and were given a room three floors downstairs from the front desk. The room itself was comfortable (terrible views though) but the bathroom was stinky and the...
