Hotel Holiday Home HPTDC (Shimla)
Hotel Holiday Home in Shimla (India) is a premium property of Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) and as experienced – one of the very good hotels in Shimla undoubtedly, located very near to the famous Mall Road.
I booked this place after looking at many hotels in Shimla available on the internet. Been here with my partner in March 2008 and was delighted on getting here. Just as we landed, the Front Desk took not more than 5 minutes to sort out all their paperwork & formalities and assigned one of their guys to show us our room. Since this is a big property, the Reception area was reasonably far from my allotted room, that was in another building. But the entire path and the room was all cleaned up, nice and cosy but spacious. Spacious Parking available.
Amenities At Hotels in Shimla, In General
The room was well lit, had a heater (since early Feb can also be very cold), clean cupboards, bed, pillows and mattresses, clean bathroom, hot shower available, HD TV, safe box among other things. Breakfast quality and menu was good too. Our room luckily had a great view as can be seen in the pictures below.
Ours was a basic room, meaning if there are 4 categories or of rooms (1 being the most basic & cheapest and 4 being the best), our room was at No. 2.
Since we did not eat anytime in this hotel, cannot comment. Staff was very polite and courteous. From the cost point of view, they charged us around INR 2,300/- per day inclusive of morning continental breakfast. The rates and the quality of breakfast I found reasonable.

Majority of the hotels in Shimla including Hotel Holiday Home is close to Shimla Railway Station, within a radius of 2 kms. Finding this place near Shimla High Court is not at all a problem, if you don’t mind asking for directions 😉
Sight Seeing Spots Near Hotels in Shimla
One of the very popular sightseeing spots that is very near to the hotels in Shimla is the Mall Road. It took us max 10 minutes to reach there. If it took more than that, then may be I was holding my partner’s hand and was busy admiring her while walking, so may not have realized how much we have walked 🙂 Then, who cares if I missed a couple of turns… Recommended for Sure !
