The hotel is a bit far from Shimla city center (15 mins drive), but the view on the valley is just beautiful. The hotel is very well maintained and staff very helpful. We had a very nice stay - 3 nights.

Great place to stay when you are visiting Shimla or nearby. Perfect location away from city chaos, quite and serene place. I had been many times to Shimla but this was my best experience till date staying in a Hotel. It was a long but comfortable stay. Warm welcome drink is served when you arrive. Good decent rooms with amazing view of the valley. Courteous staff and room service was good. Quite big and happening restaurant at ground floor which serves good food and also enjoyed live music on Friday and Saturdays night. Just a small suggestion to the chef to make food bit luscious, there is some space for improvement, otherwise everything was prefect. Also General Manager Mr. Alok Sharma very appreciating person, because of his efforts hotel is doing really well. Thanks for the hospitality.

I think giving 5 stars would be underrating the property and its staff. This is my second visit to The Zion and i can proudly say they have exceeded the expectations every time. The property : it is situated around 7 kms before the mad rush pf Shimla so the biggest advantage is that you find peace and serenity. The view from the property of Shimla is the best at night! So if you want to live in a little peaceful place , this is the proper. The staff: they are just extraordinary. They know what customer service is all about and they live up to it. The restaurant staff is just awesome. They took care of my child's needs and remembered her choices. 10 stars to Narendra!!! Food : super tasty..be it veg or non veg, you will just love it... try kadhai chicken, dal makhani and dal tadka. Super tasty!! Overall.. must visit!!
