Himachal Bhawan
Reviewed 5 January 2014

I stayed here for a night on the way to Shimla and it turned out to be a disappointment. Had booked a family room with 4 beds (the most expensive one) - and it was a poor room and so chilling (wet walls, window gaps, etc) - during the December cold. Had to struggle to get a heater going. There's typically no one around to service quickly. The food at the restaurant is okay, though the choice is limited. The travel folks they link up is also an expensive proposition and one can find better options on your own. Overall not worth for the steep cost paid. Please avoid & go only if there's no option.

Room Tip: Never choose the family room @ Ground floor

Reviewed 16 December 2013

I struggled to find a place to stay in Chandigarh, and this was the first place I found to have a room available. It was a bit more expensive than most places I stayed in India, but the room was a good size (particularly with the high ceilings) and the reception area, halls and stairways etc. had lots of space.

The bathroom was decent, there was a good selection of extra bedding in the wardrobes, and things were generally in a good state of cleanliness and repair. The room faced the main road, but at some distance, and there was no traffic noise at all.

Service at the reception was efficient and not too busy.

The restaurant was pretty reasonable, perhaps a bit character-less, but with plenty of space and fast service. Prices were OK too.

Location wasn't ideal for the centre of Chandigarh, but it's not too far to the rock garden, and it's the right side of town for the railway station.
