We stayed at vatsalyam for 2 nights. Vatsalyam homestay is located away from the hustle bustle of the Mall road, but the beauty of this place is the picturesque view from the balcony. It was our first stay at a homestay and initially we were a bit reluctant but all thanks Asheesh and family, they were so warm and welcoming....

All we had to do was book room at vatsalyam and the rest of our Simla- Manali trip plans fell in place. Aashish contacted us and recommended a driver for our entire trip and an accomodation in Manali too. All his recommendations were first class. Aashish and his family treats the guests like they are part of the family. They...

We had a fantastic stay at Vatsalyam. Away from the crowds of Mall Road, it is a charming place. We were treated very well by Asheesh and his wonderful family. Did not feel we were staying in a hotel, instead it felt more like home. The rooms are nice and spacious and offer great views, the furniture inside is modern...

The Vatsalyam Home Stay was such a great experience. The whole family was so kind and charming. They took as for several walks and showed us the city. The food was delicious, the best we've ever had in india. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the huge terrace with an amazing view is the highlight.

I'd visited Shimla recently with my family. The unanimous positive reviews on trip advisor about Vatsalyam and the fact that we wanted to pick a Homestay was the reason I chose it. And boy were the reviews right! To begin with the house was situated on the slope of a hill which ensured a stupendous view to the rest of...

We stayed three nights. All the warm reviews are justified. From arranging for us to be met at Shimla station to helping us through India's currency problems Ashish was great. Room and terrace were great. We had two evening meals which were fab. Best of all though was the welcome and interest shown by the whole family and especially Ashish's...

Had booked Vatsalysam via Booking.com after reading the ever too good reviews. I have to say that the Sharda family is one awesome kind of people – extremely warm, extending such great hospitality. The rooms are neat, clean, comfortable and the views from the rooms are spell-bounding. Food was delicious and finger-licking good. It is a pity as we just...
