Prity's 4 days trip to Shimlaover all nice trip axcept dalhousie stay in HoLiday inn in o e word poor hospitality nd 8 km away from mall road
Sriram's 6 days trip to ShimlaThe hotel in manali was changed in the last minute due to some "shortcircuit ". But just infront of us, a couple were alloted rooms in the same hotel. Shifting hotel rooms isn't a pleasant experience. Even on the next day, after i've had to follow up with hotel, agent. Finally with travel triangle team stepping in, that they've alloted rooms in the hotel. I double checked with the agent while booking, if the hotel in manali was good. He insisted it was great. Atleast prior intimation would've been good from the agency or from the hotel. Apart from that the trip was good.
Kalyan's 5 days trip to ShimlaThe hotel which we got in shimla not at all good(Home inn) , there was no proper maintenance and the staff also not at all responsible. The days we spent at manali...
Rajneesh's 4 days trip to ShimlaHotel was changed at the last moment with no hot water facility in the bathroom. They are provided hand made water heater with no safety precautions. You have to fill bucket and bring to the living room for connection of heater. While booking they show 3 star hotel Snow Villa and then change to the Hidden Heaven cottage(Same name Malhaar Cottage). But view from the room is good. Taxi driver is good and cooperative. Over all trip was good.
R's 3 days trip to ShimlaWorst food(breakfast n dinner) we ever had in our trips till date.location of hotel is also very hard to find even with navigation. Time we spend at lifetime was the best we will cherish n remember.
Devendra's 4 days trip to ShimlaIt was good, Check in for the customer should be immediate in hotel. Vehicle condition should be known to customer Delhi to Manali and Manali to Delhi traveling should be by Sleeper AC Volvo not by seater.
