Shimla Accommodation Himachal

There is a large variety of accommodation available in the Shimla throughout the year. From budget accommodation to the deluxe options within luxurious hotels, every traveller, no matter what the budget, will be able to find something to suit.

Most hotels are situated right in the city centre, many located on the Mall strip, but all within a reasonable distance of the main attractions and facilities such as restaurants and shops.

Rates for accommodation during the peak season can be rather steep, especially April through June and including October, November and the Christmas period. Off peak months can see a dramatic fall in prices with often large discounts. If a discount isn’t offered, ask! Touts can often deceive you into thinking some hotels are either full or closed, but don’t always take their word for it as usually they will say this to gain a commission from another.

A great place to start for budget accommodation in Shimla is Hotel Dalziel. Thought of as ‘heritage on a budget’, The Hotel Dalziel has character galore while still clean with hot water. It is in a handy position at the bottom of the Mall.

For a mid range option, start looking at places like Spars Lodge. It is your average lodge with the added extras of good food and welcoming staff.

At the top end, Oberoi Cecil provides a five star hotel option for those wanting a bit of luxury on their travels. It is modern in style with a colonial splendour as its exterior. With a bar and restaurant on site and wifi available throughout, this is a top market stay.
