“Beware of them before they fool you”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

I was having a conversation with them over mail as well as over phone and then after a discussion they agreed on to provide us with ceratin discount and subsequently asked us to transfer 50% as the advance payment for the same.
On asking for a wriiten confirmation, they simply said not to worry much about the trifle stuff and that it will be taken care of. Now once I trasferred the sum, lo and behold! , he simply denied of having any such discussion and then somehow had a half-hearted agreement to what he had said but refused to oblige by the same.
It was a immediate decision on my part to not continue with them any-further, come what may !! You would never know what might they be further upto, come tomorrow.

Wouldn't recommended them going by this initial bad experience, even before I could have had actual experience of staying at their property.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days, the hotel has excellent location and very quick service for food and anything else. The best part about this hotel is the location, although its situated right on the mall it feels like you are cut off from all the noisy activities of the mall. The hotel has a lift so no strenuous climbing of stairs is required.
The only drawback of the hotel is the housekeeping ... the simply do not understand what CLEAN means, we were traveling with my one year old son and had specifically asked them to dust the room and keep the toilet clean. The dusting was shoddy not at all satisfying and the curtains and upholstery was used and dirty ... we had to ask them to replace the hand towels twice before it was done once. I recommend staying here if you are not too particular about the dust lying around.
Other than that the hotel staff and everything else was good and the view from the hotel is excellent I would stay here again only because of the view and the location.

Room Tip: Choose the room facing the Himalayas.

I booked this hotel through Trip advisor reviews and I must say I made the absolute right choice.
Our room had an excellent view of the valley. The rooms were clean and the waiters very friendly. The bathrooms are CLEAN! The room service was fast and affordable.

But clearly the cherry on the cake was access to Mall Road. It was mentioned in the lift that their 6th floor was 'Mall Road'. We rode the lift to the top floor and it opened on one end of Mall Road.This was amazing as cars are not allowed beyond a certain point there and this made our stay very comfortable.
Will definitely recommend to everyone.

What I really liked about this hotel was how we were directly able to go to mall road from the roof top. It was conformable walk of 15-20 mins to the mall road, which is the main happening place to visit after evening in shimla. We didn't stay here for long as we had to move to other places but we really liked the place and would be visiting this place again if ever get chance.

Good location close to the mall road and the railway station. The food is amazing and very prompt. Neat though lacking a little on the crumbling infrastructure.

we stayed at hotel landmark fron 7th to 10th oct 2011. i got it booked through a travel agent who promised us the best of hospitality. my ordeal started the first day when i asked the room service to boil bottles for my kid. this was met with a refusal and i had to ask the room service that if this was the hotel policy i had to change my hotel. on this they agreed. the same continued for the next 2 days and each time to get the bottles boiled i had to make repeated requests. finally at the time of checkout i requested the manager / the owner to please look into this so that other guests dont suffer bur the owner mr aggarwal was hardly apologetic for this. well the place is not a chain of hotels as appears from the name. service and hospitality were poor. complaint redressal was worst. only good point was the connectivity to mall road. Advise . donot travel to this hotel with kids

Room Tip: dont opt for family room
