A pretty bad hotel, a little on the outskirts of Shimla town. Hotel is par below in Standards; Room heaters were offered on extra payment during peak winter... Quality of food was very poor, no taste but too salty... A very horrible stay indeed... Would suggest to look out for other good hotels in Shimla...

Took a cab from Kalka. The hotel is located on the right side of the Old Bus Stand or Cart Road before entering the town of Shimla. It has a parking space. The Shimla railway station is a further 10 mins walk ahead. The Shimla bus terminus is a 15 minutes drive. Such good connectivity comes at a cost. It...

Hotel Firhill is good location in Shimla. Room is very Good. Food quality is also good. The rooms have to be renovated to current standards. But better stay at Chail an extra mile to make your stay comfortable.

25 families including mine stayed in this hotel in may 22 and 23, 2016. It is an average hotel. But the hotel is poorly maintained. Many of the rooms were not fully cleaned for weeks. It is clear from the included photographs. Most of the toilets were not clean at all. In some rooms, they even denied to clean even...

I have visited this hotel two days ago. They put me and my wife at a very dirty and weird room where drivers and tour managers are staying. Drivers and tour manager were drunk and shouting loudly. My wife had high fever. I went to reception for changing my room. When I told them that I don't want to stay...

We stayed at Hotel Firhill during last week of October 2014. The property is located on the main road ( Cart Road) and hence provides easy connectivity to all parts of Shimla and around. The Mall is 20 minutes walk away. The walk to the Mall, through the foot path up the stairs of 103 tunnel, is quite scenic and...
