Hotel White
Ranked #34 of 113 Hotels in Shimla
Reviewed 23 November 2013

We received a quick reply to our email enquiry which helped our travel planning. We were welcomed warmly and the view of the hills from room 27 was amazing! The weather in November was warm in the day but very cold at night. Be warned, the room was cold all the time, but there were plenty of blankets on the bed and a small electric fire to snuggle up in front of. The water was heated by a boiler (switch on a few minutes in advace) and was hot enough to fill my hot water bottle! If you don't travel with your own you can ask for one. Short walk to the Mall for a good choice of restaurants and a few bars. Great budget place for a friendly stay. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. WiFi was available on the upper floor. Room 27 was good.

Very very rude staff , Also they stole my laptop ... My laptop was in room and i went out to cruise on mall road... when i came back , my laptop was not there . The room was locked.. Who else can have my room key else then me... When i called police , the police also supported them. No one helped me .... Avoid this hotel ....

Room Tip: The hotel is pathetic and its staff too.

We stayed here from 15th to 17th jun2013. Excellanty veiw of valley from rooms.
rooms are clean. very near from mall road, 2mins walking distance.

Hotel provides snacks and tea. But for food, you have to go outside. No problem of water.

Overall good hotel for budget travellers. Also if you want to stay near mall road.

It is a nice hotel at a very strategic location. Mall & Ridge are only 5 minutes walk. Many restaurants around in 2-3 minutes walk. Market is only 1 minute walk. Rooms are clean. Overall you can go with your family and enjoy Shimla staying in this hotel.

A Balcony with a fantastic view down a valley. We sometimes shared the balcony with visiting local monkeys. Need to keep doors and windows closed. A basic room, spacious and very clean. Bathroom clean and adequate. No restaurant but food was cooked and brought to the rooms by very friendly obliging staff.
The manager was very helpful giving information and organising taxis.
Worst bit was when we arrived our taxi couldn't find the road to the hotel. We could see the hotel on the top of the ridge but not how to get there. We phoned and a porter was sent to help us up lots of steps with our luggage and showing us were to go. This hadn't been pointed out to us earlier so there was confusion and slight panic on arrival. Don't attempt the climb up if you are not traveling light, help or two trips are needed. Disregard this if you are young strong and fit.

Room Tip: ask for a large room with a balcony they have the views
