“Very old hotel, crying for renovation”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

The hotel staff are really friendly, but the facility is in desperate need of maintenance. Break fast and wifi was included in the price but yet I found it not value for money as the room was dirty. Cracked bath, shower handle came off to the hand and can't remember anything good apart from good reception staff.

Restaurant staff were very old men who was not so much in to service and just after the tips. The young staff were very good but couldn't introduce any service as the senior staff were the ones who ran the show.

Room Tip: Location is good if you have things to do around sector 17 and easy commute around many other import...

Stayed at this hotel for one night along with friends.
Positives: Excellent location (walking distance from Sector 17 market), Seems like hotel has been recently redone (lobby, lifts, pool etc), excellent pool, has a gym (didnt get chance to visit), ample parking space if you are driving in, big sized rooms, Big Screen TV.

Negatives:
Staff demeanor - when we came in we intended to give our car to vallet but none of the valet guys came forward and we ourselves drove to parking. Once we are in lobby with our luggage, bell boys rush to take the luggage to our rooms and would not go out of room till we paid them (against our wish post parking episode).
Breakfast - Poor spread and not so good preparation.
Furniture - Though hotel appears redone, furniture is not and especially bedding, linen etc is not up to mark.
TV - While it is large screen , they don't have DTH and instead have cable TV, not a big issue.
Bed Size - Quite small for Twin beds.
Rooms - We had to struggle to find the light switches.

I have been using Shivalik Hotel for our Group Travels often. This time me and my colleague preferred to stay here again for over night while going to Shimla.

I must say that this hotel breaks the myths of being Compromising hotel being belongs to state run tourism Organisation ( CITCO ).

This hotel is situated at ideal location which is near to main markets of Chandigarh. All the services were excellent. Most importantly delicious buffet.

Met with ever smiling reception staff and Mr. Dixit, who is one of the main reason of being repeated customer of Shivalik View.

We just had a one day transit stay in Chandigarh. We were travelling as family of 4. And I am glad we chose this hotel to stay. As in latest reviews by other travellers- the premium deluxe rooms on higher floors, proximity to market, prompt service and helpful attitude of the staff- are all worth repeating again. Add in the - value for money deal inclusive of breakfast and dinner, huge room size with balcony, and the surprise Hop-On-Hop Off Bus starting for the hotel- it just worked so conveniently for the us and kids for the short visit. In half a day we were able to visit Rose Garden, Rock Garden, State Museum, Sukhna Lake and drop to Sec 17 market. Would recommend this for all and especially those travelling with young kids. The open top double decker ride (half day city tours starting at 10 am and then again at 2:30 pm) was truly fun. The breakfast and dinner too was very enjoyable and service was friendly and excellent all around. Rose Garden, the lively markets of Sector 17-especially in evenings and a host of eateries inside market are all accessible within 5 mins of the hotel. Highly recommended for stay. Kudos to CITCO.

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
