Kapil Hotel
Ranked #3 of 123 Hotels in Shimla
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We stayed at the Kapil Hotel during our 3 night stay in Shimla. The penthouse suite was ideal with great views outside, a nice balcony and a small seating area around the TV where you can order snacks and drinks to sit and relax.

The service from the staff was second to none, happy to accommodate any needs, the only issue being they closed at around 10pm at night. We also organised a car to take us around for two days to areas we could trek far away and bring us back at reasonable rates.

The hotel offers a free drop off to near the bazaar until 7pm but it's an easy enough walk back after this time.

All in all couldn't have asked for more. Will definitely return if I come back to Shimla.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with friends

Pros: Location,this place is at a walk-able distance from Lakkar Bazaar, Mall Road and Ridge.

They offer free Pick up and Drop from Hotel to Lakkar Bazaar bus stand and Mall Road entry.

Food served in the room is decent and they can serve in the Hot cases if you plan to eat late than 10 PM.

Neat and Clean rooms.

Cons: Small Hotel which feels more like a small guest House. Rooms are way too small and you feel cramped inside. Difficult to say that this is a hotel..

Food to be ordered before 10 PM sharp; otherwise you are on your own

The Deluxe room are right on the top of the road; you feel like you are on the road and can actually hear the sounds of vehicles passing on the road.

Final Words: Book this hotel only if you are out of options.. This is a Good place if you wish to spend more than 16 hours out of Hotel

Room Tip: Do not choose Deluxe rooms; It has no view of the valley and room is totally cramped. Feels you are...

We simply loved the view from our room and the hospitality displayed by all the staff. The food is reasonably priced and yummy too. The Hotel provides complimentary drops to the Mall at any time during the day if you want to go shopping or buy anything. They even arranged Taxi and other travel arrangements at a reasonable price.

The gesture of arranging a cake(on the house) was special and memorable one too.

Room Tip: Choose a valley facing room. We stayed in 118 which has a very good view.

We stayed for 3 nights at hotel Kapil from 14 - 17 June-2014 in their penthouse room, very interesting room with low roof in the corners.Some of the things I really liked about Kapil was the standard of cleanliness specially in the bathrooms , the spacious size of accomodation with a separate living area and terrace with beautiful view of the valley and the Radisson hotel.

The in room dining experience was good and food presentation was very good.wi- fi worked well. We just rested and relaxed in room for three days without any sight seeing and preffered to spend time with Kids.

Only problem faced is that their credit card machine was not working and i had to pay and settle the bill through cash.

Room Tip: penthouse room
