“Good hotel for the price”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

For a government hotel, it is a surprisingly good deal. The rates are fair considering the size and facilities in the room. The rooms are massive with decent furniture. The staff is friendly and helpful.
The food could be better - we only tried the buffet dinner and breakfast that was covered in the room tariff. Considering that we were looking forward to some good Punjabi food, the restaurant was a slight letdown.
The staff was also quite cool about late checkout. The location of the hotel is prime and most key places are a stone's throw away.
All in all, would recommend this place to anyone going to Chandigarh.

Room Tip: Go for Premium Deluxe and above. The hardwood flooring etc give the room make the rooms a class apar...

This is a good business and leisure hotel.The hotel was renovated recently and some renovation is still going on.This is now a much improved and one of the finest hotels of Chandigarh.After renovation it looks very good.Staffs are very good and helpful.The hotel offers complimentary breakfast and dinner ( included in the tariff).The tariff of the hotel is very reasonable.This is a huge hotel and their new restaurants are very good.They also have 2-3 banquet halls.
Rooms needs to be improved a little bit .
The spread of their buffet breakfast and dinner are good but need to be improved.Range need to be widened.
Overall a very good place to stay.It is in the heart of the city yet very calm n green.Commercial and business centres are within a stone's throw.
Value for money hotel
Their fitness centre and swimming pool are yet to be operational/functional

Room Tip: take room on the higher floor with balcony to have a beautiful view of the greenary around

The two night stay was comfortable but left us wondering why such a premium property is not being maintained well. The room size is great & so is the location but maintenance issues and need for upgradation of upholstery & basics should be addressed to make it one of the best.

It has the feel of a government-owned hotel, and I believe it is. It needs money spent on it, particularly on the rooms, which are pretty basic. Mine lacked basic facilities such as a safe, for example
However there were compensations. The dinner buffet was excellent.
All in all, it is not a place one would seek out for a luxury stay. However it does the job if you want a night or so in Chandigarh

I have stayed here many times and always my experience was good. The hotel is half a kilometre away from the sector 17 bus stand. Except little slower pace at the reception rest everything was okay. Cloud 9 restaurant is very beautiful and offers great scenic views of the city beautiful. It's a bit expensive but the food here is delicious. Food served was good both in restaurant as well as one served in the room. The close proximity to sector 17 market area is a big plus point. AC control was okay. Hot water facility was also quite good .

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the sector 16 cricket stadium rather than the parade ground facing room...

I have stayed @ Shivalik View Chandigarh almost 10 times in past 5 years. Nothing has changed untill recently they decided to give it a makeover. The Hotel Lobby, Cafeteria & Restaurants have been redone but the rooms are still century old look with shabby beds & nothing in the name of ambience. The poorest part is the service where it takes ages to deliver your order, and that is because it is a govt. managed hotel & the attitude of the staff is like wise. I stayed in end December which was relatively very cold, so i asked for an extra blanket which they were unable to provide as they didn't had spare (this means you can leave your guest shivering in cold as you don't have ample arrangements). If you are sitting in a buffet & ask waiter to bring something on the table, they would harshly deny saying that "it is self service, don't you know it". Ultimately you would end up spoiling your mood & won't be able to enjoy. Bathrooms are worst, one would not want to enter. The hotel is just running because of its location & unavailability of other options in Chandigarh. Recently other properties like Park Plaza etc have come up nearby which will always be better option. I will not recommend this to anyone visiting Chandigarh.

Room Tip: Choose Room on 5th Floor which has been renovated, it will atleast make you feel little better.
