Can some one suggest a good place to stay at Kalka. It would be better if the hotel is near Kalka railway station.
Did you find a hotel in Kalka? We are looking for the same thing. Coming up from Delhi and wanting to stay near the railway station so that we can catch the first train up to Shimla in the morning. Any info you can give us would be gratefully received.
I recently returned from a trip to Shimla, Manali, etc. We had a train reservation from Delhi to Kalka on the Shatbdi and planned to stay overnight at Kasauli and hire a taxi from there.The himachal tourism people here recommended that we change our plans and disembark at Chandigarh instead of Kalka. They told us that facilities at Kalka were not so good and hiring taxis, etc would be very difficult and troublesome. Apparently they had faced a lot of criticism on this count earlier.
Just something for you to keep in mind ...
Anybody stayed in Kalka for a night in order to catch train to Shimla in the next morning?
I'm looking for same information and seems nobody either stayed in Kalka or having only information regarding lodging in Kalka.
I would appreciate if someone can share his/her experience.
Contact details of 3 hotels which are situated close to Kalka station are:
Hotel Kumar Plaza, 01733-220634
Hotel Amber, 01733-221444
Hotel Blue Moon, 01733-220936
Kalka is indeed a small town.
Kalka Railway Station too has rooms for hire.
It's very neat and clean railway station and food is available just opposite the railway station in various dhabas.
How to book hotel at kalka on line
They are all small hotels, so I don't think they'll have website or online booking facilities....
I think You'll have to book them old fashioned way by calling up only....
i woukd suggest hotel Lotus situated abt 150 meters frm rly station....
the no. is 09896295004. nice and small hotel....
The best hotel in the area is Hotel Timber Trail. Its a 3 starish kind of a place. Has two parts, some rooms in the main building and another set of rooms on a mountain which is accessible by a ropeway.
It has a nice restaurant in the main building and also a bar. Worth staying the night. The railway station is just a 15 min drive. I am sure the hotel will provide transfers. Checkout their site:
