We stayed there for 4-7th June. Shimla was very hot at this period of time but our stay at kapil was very pleasant as their hospitality n promptness is awesome. We stayed in super deluxe room ( no.110)
Pros:
Very tasty food at very reasonable rates.
All important toiletries provided.
Room was very large n very beautiful with a valley view.
U can book ur local sight seeing from them at market rate only.
Very quick room service n always with smile.
Very peaceful place plus complementary drop to lakkar bazaar for mall road.
Superb high speed free wifi
Cons:
Far from mall road n isbt.
They don't hv their own resto.
No elevator.

We booked this hotel with goibibo.com n got 30% discount on room tariff

Room Tip: Choose super deluxe room or higher

I booked 1 Super Deluxe and 1 Deluxe rooms.It was very nice experience.We reached 5 hours early in morning and the manager arranged one room for us to get fresh and ready to visit the city without any extra pay.Room services was nice.Local tour package was very good and we booked manali tour package as well with but we had bad experience in manali tour.Driver was not good.He was always busy in phone call .We had very bad experience for rohtang pass trip. Driver told us there is no one to guide ,he could not help..we had to take guide for INR 2000.Driver dropped us 2 km before to Beas Pass...we thought that place was rohtang pass as driver misguided us...when we asked other travellers we got the whole story...rohtang pass was another 40-50 km and we ended up without visiting the place. We used to take auto from mall road every day to visit our hotel daffodil because driver used to busy in phone and taking rest in our hotel.Only excuse we faced all the time from him 'there was heavy Jam in road' where we never faced Jam in auto.I would suggest not to take long trip package from Shimla hotels rather book car from Manali itshelf.

Room Tip: Super Deluxe with Hill View

Stayed in the hotel on 14-15 June. Picked us from the shimla station. Since we were early, they gave a temporary place to fresh up. Courteous staff welcomed us with a drink. Beautiful view from our room. Walkable distance from lakaar bazaar. Tried both north Indian and Chinese food. Awesome. Our superdelux room had a expandable bed for two children.

after searching many hotels on various travel websites finally I decided to stay in hotel kapil.when we reached the hotel I experienced that my decision was right.this hotel is perfect place to stay in many aspect,first of all this hotel is very near to mall road and ridge (only 10 minute walk,although hotel provide complimentary pick and drop till lakkar bazar).another good thing about its staff,staff is really very helpful and honest.room service is also very quick.rooms are little bit small but very clean and comfortable,They do not have a restaurant but they have in room dining facility. We had ordered breakfast and dinner in room. They had a decent variety in menu and I would like to mention it specially that the food was excellent and it was better than the famous restaurants on the Mall. Overall our stay was pleasant and it is true value for money,and i'll stay in this hotel again I visit shilma.

After searching several hotels on Tripadvisor, decided to stay in this hotel. The best part - the management is honest right from their first correspondence. May be it is one of the few hotels who tell you want they don't have!

We stayed in the family suite. It is comfortable for a family of two adults and two kids. The rooms are clean, linen clean, sheets clean, very clean toilet. Hot water was available all the 24 hours.

The rooms and facilities provided in the room are at par with 4 star hotels I have stayed in. LED televisions in both rooms of the suite.

Room service is prompt.

Food is very tasteful, good quantity and reasonably priced.

Definitely recommended.
