We had a very nice stay at Aapo. The host is a REAL HOST. Friendly and always there when you have a question or you need something. Room was very big and very clean. Nice shower with warm water. Very special view over the valley and the mountains. Everything was okay and fine. We enjoyed it very much.

After a long and rather trecherous journey into Shimla we were in low spirits when we got into the cab on the way to Aapo Aap. However as soon as we walked through the front door, we were welcomed and felt instantly at home in Shivi's beautiful home. The host made every effort to make us comfortable and looked after....

Location: Aapo Aap is an hour's drive from Shimla rail station (with traffic), and is reachable by taxi for ~RP500. The location is well-known to the taxi drivers so we did not have any trouble locating it. We absolutely love the location of Aapo Aap as it is situated in a quiet area with amazing view of the hills. The...

This place is little far from main shimla i.e. Mall Road but its location and view of the valley compensate for it. Owner Mr. Shivi is very helpful and always willing to go the extra mile to do things right. Rooms were very spacious with all amenities. Food was homecooked and staff was well behaved. First time we stayed in...

Really nice homestay with an awesome view of the valley from the balcony. It's a bit far from shimla but a perfect way to get away from the noise and grime of Shimla centre. Shiv was really helpful and the homecooked food was delicious and endless, a great intro to Himachal hospitality

This property is little far from Shimla. It was very difficult for us to locate this property. Though Staff is very helpful. Rooms are big with all amenities but no ceiling fans in the room and it was very difficult for us to manage during night. One table fan provided was not sufficient and request for additional fan was refused.

We are glad you enjoyed the hospitality, the spacious room & amenities. With all your room windows kept closed by you on a cool summer night, no extra fan would have helped. One oscillating pedestal fan was provided in the room. Assuring you of our best care. Regards, Innkeeper

My partner & I stayed here for an extra night as we loved it so much. Clean room with linen & towels incl. Bed was firm (quite typical of India) but slept well.

We reached the homestay from the railway station without any problems, as the taxis at the station all knew about the location. The view from the hotel was spectacular. The rooms were huge! We barely ever used the attached living room. The bathroom was clean, and similarly large. The rooms open out into a huge verandah overlooking the valley. Shivi...
