I have always been reluctant to come to shimla for 2 reasons:. 1. Car parking 2. Good property near mall road But this time, we stumbled upon Royal retreat on our internet research, and we are so glad to finalize it. The hotel is conveniently located near mall, absolutely walking distance and has car parking. The stay was amazing: 1. Rooms were amazing and well kept 2. Service was good 3. Staff is amicable And food is something we loved and relished through our stay. Just the right flavours and with each meal we wanted to thank the chef for the excellent taste. Overall a great stay and highly recommended..am looking forward to come back soon and finally i have a hotel that will be my reason to come more frequently! Keep up the good work, special mention to Sahil for being a great connect! ❤❤❤

Nothing special. Needs improvement seriously. Positives. 1. Centrally located. Mall road is a mere 10 min walk for a fit person. Those with walking issues will find it difficult to reach Mall road as the walk is a uphill task and first 150 odd meters is steep uphill walk. After that, it's a gradual ascend. 2. Parking space in hotel itself. 3. Valley view rooms are good. The city view rooms face the always busy circular road & need to be curtained everytime. Negatives. 1. Unresponsive staff. Despite seeing two vehicles, no one came to help in unloading luggage. 2. In the end, I brought my luggage on my own. I am physically fit and I myself prefer lifting my stuff on my own. If help doesn't comes at a budget hotel no-one bothers as it is expected. But after getting three rooms and paying almost 16k for one night stay, atleast I can expect this little courtesy. 3. Same issue on check out. Despite asking for room service to get luggage downstairs, no one came. In the end, got myself. The lady at reception in front of me called someone that thrice she asked for room service to go, but no one went. 4. Need to surrender car keys to hotel staff. As cars need to be moved to make way for other cars move in and out. Don't leave anything precious in car. Everyone knows how your car will be handled by staff. Mine had a bruise on bumper. But it's useless fighting. 5. Kettles are dirty with stains in bottom. Tea and coffee pouches are provided at room but looking at dirty stains, most likely you won't like to make it. 6. Walls are scratch filled with luggage marks form other customers. 7. Room 508 has drainage issues in shower cubicle. As the result you stand in about 1 inch soap water after one two mins. There is no rug outside washroom/bathroom. You end up with watery footmarks all over the room. 3 positives & 8 negatives. Guess that's enough to tell.

The staff and service is very good. At the reception post request we were upgraded to Royale suite where we got a good view of the mountains. I had a 2 night stay here an did not try out their restaurant food. Overall I had a good experience here.
