About Prestige

The cosy, simply furnished rooms have heating and private bathrooms with showers and free toiletries. Many rooms boast city and mountain views. Standard features include telephones, desks, wardrobes and flat-screen TVs. Family rooms are available too.

There is room service and free Wi-Fi throughout. Further amenities include a 24-hour reception, laundry service and meeting rooms.

Positive Reviews

Central location had appealing aspects

With shopping and dining options nearby, this hotel’s location appealed to reviewers. Guests were pleased to be a short lift ride or walk away from Mall Road, the shopping heart of Shimla. Moreover, the lofty position afforded excellent views of the city and surrounding hills.

Rooms did the basics well

It pleased guests that the rooms were, on the whole, more than sufficiently clean, neat and comfortable for their needs. Even though the rooms were often described as being fairly simple, it was a bonus for reviewers that they had features like flat-screen TVs and private bathrooms.

Good in-house dining

More often than not, guests had praise for the on-site restaurant here. It offered a decent range of authentic dishes typical in north India. Furthermore, those who tried the room service often said it was good.

Negative Reviews

Shortcomings reported in some rooms

Besides reports that some of the rooms were quite small, guests occasionally took issue with cleanliness and maintenance issues. These included inconsistent housekeeping visits, dirty floors, patchy Wi-Fi, interruptions to the water supply and missing bathroom blinds that compromised privacy. There were also reports of musty smells in some rooms. Critics blamed poor ventilation for making the unpleasant smells problematic at times.

Difficult access

For newcomers to Shimla, this hotel’s location made it quite hard to find at first because it is in an elevated position that has steep and tricky access from certain directions. Those with heavy luggage also found the access challenging.

Slow service at times

There were claims from guests that poor communication between personnel meant they were sometimes left waiting too long for their requests to be dealt with.
