“Great Experience*........but condition apply”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Location is little odd. its a five storied building with New ISBT at its ground floor, SRS and CCD on 3rd floor. and the hotel is on 4th floor. The kind of rush at the ground floor can make you feel uncomfortable. Lift is very slow. But, the reception is good, but the overall ambiance at reception requires a makeover (as the work here was still under progress).Once you are on the 4th Floor; you will find the place great with good Customer service.Rooms are excellent and washroom are great. Staffs are very courteous and are always ready to help. Restaurant area is great, but the Food is average and also, the place has very less or no amenities (Disc, games, etc). The same hotel at a different location would have been much better. But overall, it was a great experience and is recommended if you are not interested in amenities and can bear the average food

Actually it's a 5 storied complex, Simla new bus stand (I.B.T.) at ground & 1st floor, some restaurants at 2nd floor, cinema hall on 3rd floor & this C.K.International hotel is on 4th & 5th floor. Really very odd to stay above shabby bus stand. Hotel lift is badly maintained..........but yes rooms are good, food quality is good, staff is friendly but poorly trained. Overall ok for economy stay option.

Room Tip: Hill facing rooms

Overall comfortable Stay.
Food service was superb.
Room was clean though little more focus should be towards bed sheet cleanliness.
Location is worse else stay would have been more pleasant.
staying just above bus stand is not a very good idea for trips.
Regular shouting at Bus Stand(like Chandigarh-Chandigarh) will be the most hated thing at midnight.

My wife and I stayed at CK International (Shimla) for two nights on 5th & 6th April 2014.

We usually take overseas holidays once every year and this year we chose to spend 25 days in India and stayed in 9 different hotels which included The Grand Hyatt (Mumbai), The Lalit (Mumbai), Surya (Mc Leod Ganj), Snow Peak Retreat (Manali), Cama Hotel (Chandigarh).

My wife is extremely picky about cleanliness and overall condition of hotel rooms and in particular the bathrooms. Having read many bad reviews about hotels in Shimla, we were quite apprehensive before arriving at the hotel but very much liked our stay at CK International which we had booked online on the sole ground that it was a new property with modern bathrooms and were not disappointed with the offing.

Our Chandigarh-Shimla volvo bus was running an hour late but we were pleasantly surprised that Mr Hoshiyar Singh (the hotel GM) called me to enquire whether we needed any help. We reached the hotel around 5 pm and check in was swift. We were offered complimentary tea and coffee by the hotel GM on arrival.

The hotel is located on the 4th floor of Shimla Tutikandi Bus Station (all long distance HRTC buses terminate there) and the location was extremely convenient as we just had to walk a few metres and take the lift to the hotel, compared to steep uphill stairs and ludicrously excessive porters charges had we stayed in a hotel around the Mall. So the location is a definite advantage especially as there is a Shimla Taxi Union office on the ground floor with a lot of taxis in the parking. A taxi to Mall Road cost around Rs200 and a bus ticket is less than Rs 10. Could not be happier in terms of location.

The room itself was big, modern and very comfortable, with two arm chairs and a coffee table. The view from our room was exceptional (dominating Shimla valley). The bathroom was very modern and spotless clean. Complimentary tea & coffee making facilities in the room was a bonus. Breakfast quantity and quality was very good.

Staff was attentive and helpful. There is Cafe Coffee Day restaurant on the 2nd floor of the building as well as an SRS cinema.

Having booked CK international from a carefully selected short list of popular hotels in Shimla, we made it a point to physically visit the other short listed hotels during our Shimla stay for comparison pursoses and sheer curiosity. These included Combemere, Clark's and Hotel White. Needless to say that after our visits to these hotels we strongly felt that CK International offered a far far better value, be it in terms of price, cleanliness, modernity and comfort. In fact some of the hotels we visited were priced more than twice that of CK International but were quite shabby, run down and poor bathroom condition. Only the location were better in terms of the distance from the Mall Rd.

On the negative point, we felt that the entrance lobby could have been better lit to give it a more modern and luxurious feel on first arrival.

We will definitely choose this hotel if ever we visit Shimla again. Highly recommended especially for foreigners who value overall cleanliness, comfort and modern bathroom more than location near the Mall Rd. In fact, by staying at this hotel, we easily saved at least 3 thousand rupees every day compared to the other hotels whilst our net cost on taxi fares to and from Mall Rd did not exceed Rs 500 per day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the valley.
