Excellent location close to the lift and with adequate parking facility.

The hotel has two advantages that matter: being close to the Tourist Lift and in premise parking.

There is an in premise parking for around 20 -30 cars and these are usually reserved for the guests unless a high ranking Government official chooses to stay at the hotel with his motorcade. Even in such circumstances, the hotel arranges for parking in the nearby Government parking lot.
Location of the hotel and reasonable tariff make Holiday Home an option you cannot ignore. This is a worthwhile option for those who want stay for two days at Shimla and go sightseeing during the day and spend evenings on the Mall and Ridge. Given its in-premise parking facility, it is a good option for those driving down to Shimla in their own car.

Tourism lift is within 500 metres from this hotel making it easy to go the Mall and to the Ridge. Not just that, by Shimla standards, the hotel boasts of a spacious parking area.

Only the higher priced rooms have good views and adequate furnishings. Lower priced regular and semi delux rooms have no views and can turn out be be very stuffy. During winters, they provide room heaters at no extra cost.

In house multi cuisine restaurant serves Indian, Himachal and Continental cuisine. In peak season, rooms are sold only on MAP basis (includes Dinner and Breakfast). This turns out to be a disadvantage as there are better restaurants nearby.

If you are travelling to Shimla by HPTDC Volvo bus, you can get a discount on the tariff. Call up HPTDC office for further details as they keep changing their policies frequently

Our Verdict: 4/ 5
