    Had a very pleasant stay. Valley view room provided a really good view and was quite big. The food at the restaurant was really nice and Punjabi thali is a must try.

    Although the experience at Oberoi was wonderful,still the hotel lacks in providing many things...... The king size bed which was provided to us had so soft mattresses which made us have sleepless nights and on the last night our grievance was finally resolved. As far as the staff is concerned,all of them were very courteous,soft and helpful who took extra care of us. The best part of the Hotel is the activity area for kids & the swimming pool along with its instructor who could probably lend all he had to teach swimming to the guests, this feature makes the Hotel distinct. The other thing is the lesser variety of dishes in the buffet... But on the whole the experience at Hotel Oberoi was wonderful.

  • Beautiful and colonial property in heart of Shimla

    by 984richa on September 28, 2016

    Property is located in chaura maiden which is away from crowded mall road and was a plus to avoid hotels and traffic. Heritage property, very well maintained . We stayed in suite and the view of valley is just awesome from that room. We did not try food at hotel but General service of staff was pretty good.

  • Opulent Luxury and World class service

    by Ramachandran V on September 28, 2016

    A property steeped in history and showcasing the Raj era. It is wonderfully maintained, gives a complete view of the hills and is easily accessible. The staff are great and have hospitality in their blood. The rooms are very spacious, very bright and have a wonderful aura about them. The sleep quality is just great. The mini bar is well stacked and has a good offering. The breakfast is either buffet or made to order, but the staff ensure you have any thing on earth you order. The food quality is very good. The hotel has opulence in practically everything it has to offer. This is luxury at its best! Prefer Oberoi when in Shimla.

  • Outstanding Hotel, Amazing Staff.. Oasis in Shimla!

    by Laurenjayne1102 on September 22, 2016

    From the moment we arrived we were warmly greeted by the staff. We were shown to our rooms, which were very large and luxurious. The hotel staff had gone above and beyond and they had made a birthday cake from my grandmothers birthday and left a lovely hand written note for her. Our room was very large and the bed was every so comfortable to sleep on. The hotel have "no tip" policy which I must say is the best idea when staying in India. We found the staff were genuinely helpful and happy and not just "working for the tips" like you find in other hotels, which becomes tiresome and annoying. The breakfast is delicious and they have a large selection of Indian and international cuisine. They have a large variety to chose from the menu which is cooked to order. We ate dinner here as well and the food was also very high quality and the service was amazing. We also had treatments in the spa and the staff there too were very professional and we all had a fantastic, relaxing experience. The hotel manager even gave us some books that we had been asking about to take home, I cannot praise all the staff enough at the hotel. The only fault I can say is that the hotel only allow 30minutes free wifi, after which it is charged at a very high rate. This is the only hotel we stayed at whilst in India that did not give complimentary 24h wifi. This is surprising at it was the most expensive and the nicest hotel we stayed at. I believe that in order to be a 5* hotel wifi is expected by travellers, especially in remote locations. That said, this hotel is in a league of its own along with the incredible hard working and dedicated staff that bring this hotel the true value. I will surely be staying again when I visit Shimla!

  • 6 out of 5? Best in the world!

    by zubibaby on September 14, 2016

    We just had our first visit to an Oberoi hotel. It's hard to be perfect, but they are. I told by others that the Oberoi experience is the same everywhere, but I will be satisfied with perfection in the corner of the world called Simla. Our room had a walk - in closet! How God is that. Every piece of furniture was perfect, with no dings. Our bed was perfect. The club chairs in the bar were perfect. I'm a hard to satisfy tea drinker. My tea at breakfast was so flavourful. The welcome was perfect. A lifetime of staying in hotels has finally led us to perfection. Oberoi Cecil, in Simla.

  • Choose Valley View rooms

    by Ramachandran V on September 28, 2016

  • Request a room with a view of the hills if possible (although garden facing rooms maybe quieter with no traffic noise)

    by gillsmith164 on September 4, 2016

  • Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter and you can watch the monkeys playing around from your window!

    by Albanoo on August 26, 2016

  • You could try the "valley-view" room. But be careful that the season is clear of mist / fog. Else, you'll have no valley view!

    by deepak_pandya on August 22, 2016

  • Valley View is a must!
