I arrived at Aapo Aap after over a month of traveling around India and fell in love with the place immediately. Shivi and his staff were so considerate and helpful, the location was really peaceful and quiet, and the rooms were very beautiful. I was able to relax on the huge communal balcony (monkeys permitting) and enjoy an undisrupted view...

Our stay here was really excellent. Beautiful, spacious rooms, great food and fantastic and very professional staff. The views are simply spectacular. We came here at the end of our holiday after much travelling and it was a very welcome and relaxing break.

We stayed for two nights in a huge room with amazing views over the valley. The house is quite a bit out of town so it's a 500 rupee taxi ride to get into town. Shiva, the host, couldn't have been more helpful, even providing us with a local mobile phone during our stay

Had a lovely time here. Shivi (the manager) and his staff are very accomodating, considerate and informative! This is literally a home stay with family vibes and it's nice to stay a little bit out of the hustle and bustle of Shimla. The rooms were clean and spacious - Not to mention waking up to that view every morning!

I have spent 10 weeks travelling in India and this is one of the best places we have stayed both in terms of value and hospitality. The guesthouse is situated roughly 6km south of Shimla where the views are fantastic. Our room was south facing and the views during the morning sun were particularly beautiful. The room was spacious with...

Lovely home stay. Shiv is a character, most helpful. Shimla is beautiful. Food at the home stay was delicious but dinner was overpriced (however, take away options available). Would stay again. Thank you

Value for money, Shivi will be your host, guide , friend and more in shimla. Great food and support staff, will come again. Great view in family room with balcony. Will visit again. Some points to note: A bit far from city, you end up paying for taxi. Other than that when you pay 5k in off season for the...
