Inspite of being run by government agency, this hotel offers value for money. Situated near Mall Road, the location is quite convenient. Lift is 10 mins walk from the hotel. We booked suite and it was nice and spacious. The only disappointment for this room was the view as i expected better since we paid more. There was this street light kind of thing that forced us to keep the curtains closed all the time at night. Food was nice specially chilli paneer, malai kofta, walnut pie and chole. They arranged taxi even at short notice and the drivers were nice and experienced. The breakfast buffet was adequate although it is almost completely self service. Also the rooms are a bit outdated with carpet smelling a little. A little bit of finishing is needed. But i would definitely recommend this hotel for its location and being budget friendly.

Great location. Large well appointed rooms with sitting areas. Fast service. Good food. The breakfast buffet had lots of options. Friendly staff who provided room service at no extra charge when their restaurant was too crowded. They also provided decent toiletries which was much appreciated after a long hot journey. They also provided heaters at no extra charge.

Awesome location with beautiful views of the Shimla town, very near to HPTDC lift which takes you to mall road or else one can climb stairs to the mall road in about half an hour. Food was slightly priced on the higher side, we liked the Chinese food especially the veg chowmin. Room in which I stayed was spacious and clean. Housekeeping average, room service fine and Front desk prompt.

I had stayed at HPTDCs Hotel Holiday Home Shimla in 2015 from 24 to 27 June. I am quite late with this review mainly due to the fact that I have become active in TripAdvisor very recently. But I feel that my review will help fellow travelers. I came to Shimla by the Shivalik Deluxe train of morning and reached around noon at Shimla railway station. Hotel Holiday Home (HHH) is a very popular destination in Shimla and all cab-owners were more than ready to drop us. I engaged a cab for Rs. 200 for hotel drop, a travel of some 3-4 km. I reached the reception and the person at reception saw my travel voucher and told me that you have got a cheap room because you have booked quite early. I had booked through HPTDC site some 3 months before and my room was the basic room (Double Bed Room Regular NXB). I think HPTDC raises room tariff during peak season, so it is better to book their properties earlier. Another problem with HPTDC properties is that very seldom you can book these through agents like MMT, GoiBibo, Booking, Agoda, Trivago, etc. The booking procedure of HPTDC seemed somewhat inconvenient as the booking voucher was not sent to my email ID. I think this procedure have changed now. The room assigned to me was No. 217 on second floor. Since my room was the cheapest of the hotel, I was not expecting too much. It was a fully carpeted room, quite large with wooden panels all around, had a table and chair (See room pictures). But it was not front facing and had a window which offered bad view of an alley. I think ventilation is biggest problem with HHHs rooms. I had a large LCD TV but very basic toiletries and very basic bathroom. In fact bathroom window couldnt be closed completely and guys going and coming downs a hotel stair could be seen from it. Pathetic. Room didnt had any kettle or other basic facilities. The towels were OK. Biggest plus of the room was wall mounted fan that provided the much needed respite from seemingly hot weather of Shimla. I just couldnt understand why some hotel rooms do not have any type of fan. Shimla weather is changing guys and now fans are required. The hotel looks very beautiful from upper hill range (See pictures). Hotel has well-stocked restaurant that provides amazing front view. But the rates are on higher side and service is a bit slow. The staff seems to entertain local persons more than the hotel guests. There are many lawyers and judges patronizing this restaurant as Himachal Pradesh High Court is near this property. But the food is very tasty. One plus point of this hotel is its location. You can reach the famous Shimla LIFTS in 5 minutes. But you have to walk through the Cart Road which has very heavy traffic all day. Elderly people could face problem in this regard. For LIFTS my suggestion would be to go early 9-10 am to reach Mall Road through it and return back at around noon or evening. In the evening the queue for it becomes very long. Service and attitude of hotel staff is a big minus. They dont seem to care for guests. Room service is pathetic. Your order takes ages. The room cleaning is another issue. The carpets seemed not cleaned for days which could be a health issue. There is no decent provision store near hotel for your daily needs like water, milk. These are really costly in hotel. The Sarkari attitude of employees came to fore when I asked for a guided tour. The receptionist took ages to suggest a bus tour while the tour is organized by HPTDC only. He suggested a very costly taxi plan for a few sights which I managed at a very less price through a local taxi. If you get caught in a local marriage in the hotel you will curse your decision to choose this hotel. In my text trip I will probably choose a better managed private property which is more near to Mall Road. There are many decent hotels in Mall Road itself that provide impeccable service. Go for them.

It was an awesome stay in Shimla even though the tarrif was bit over priced. There is no complaint on the cleanliness or the service of the hotel. The room was having a pedestal type heater plus a split unit which could produce hot blow; therefore it was a comfortable stay in the chill january in Shimla. The added attraction was that there was a Gazal night at the Dining hall which made our stay more overwhelming. The BBQ food that was served in the dinner was awesome and delicious. I will recommend this hotel for any luxury future traveler.
