Hotel Comfort: Not the best but not the worst

I arrived late by bus into Shimla and, as I was only staying for one evening, booked myself into the nearest relatively cheap hotel accomodation.

For 330 rs, I got a double room, hot water, a television. By Indian standards, everything was fairly clean.

The hotel is fairly centrally situated literally a couple of minutes walk from the main shops in the mall.

Having explored Shimla further I found other hotels very near that appeared slightly better for about the same place or less. This is not a bad hotel but, if you have time, you should be able to find better.

Fairly good views.

Rather unfortunate smells from the drains (even by Indian standards). Bearing in mind, I visited in the winter I can imagine that this could be a lot worse in the summer heat.

Hotel Dalziel: Colonial Style

I stayed at Hotel Dalziel in Shimla. It is a Heritage budget hotel with modern day hospitality, is centrally located on the Mall Road in Shimla, the scenic capital of Himachal Pradesh. It has the unique advantage of being the nearest hotel to the Railway Station, Bus Stand, Town Center and Shopping Areas, Banks & Kali Bari Temple. The Hotel is housed in a Heritage Building and has panoramic views overlooking the Annadale valley, Tara Hall School and distant mountain ranges. All the places are accessible on foot. However, you have to walk up the narrow road to the Mall / The Ridge. I find it a very good exercise but this could be a problem for unfit people. They hv different type of rooms depending on yr budget. However if you decide to stay here during winter, make sure you ask for heater/s since it didn’t come with the room rate. You hv to rent it. One heater might not enough to heat the room (depending on room size). Hot water could be a problem at times, especially during heavy snowfall when the pipes are frozen.

Koti Resort: Hotel in Shimla

You can select Koti Resort which is about half an hour out of Shimla if you wish to stay for a day or two. Its designed as a Swiss Chalet in 1992 has 40 elegantly furnished spacious rooms. Built along a central lawn each room is individually designed in such a way it offers a breathtaking view of the forest aglow with the setting sun. I have stayed there and enjoyed every moment of peace it has to offer. Their new premium rooms reek of luxury at an affordable price.

colours of india travel agent: Colours of india travel agent

Never ever book a package from colours of India, they don't deserve to be travel agent, they make false promises while booking tickets and package. They promise some thing and you end up with something. No value for money, they cheat people by giving u worst accommodation in hotels, never trust the drivers from this agent they always bluff and they show u colours.

They cheat people by words and never fall in to their words as they never keep up their words.

Sunrise Villa Shimla: my Shimla stay different from usual hotels

It was a home stay. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The food was simple but tasty and hygenic. Facilities were standard but well maintained. Overall nice experience. It has a drive in parking which is difficuilt to find in most hotels in Shimla. The rentals were cheap as compared to hotels.
Will recommend to all who like peaceful location away from city ,simple food and want to enjoy nature. It is 13 kms before Shimla near the highway at Shoghi

homely atmosphere, food, service, ambience & location
