When we made plans for visiting Shimla, I had the tickets booked in the bus and also the hotel booked. I searched in the internet for a budget hotel offering all the necessary services and finally decided on Hotel Gulmarg Regency Shimla, which is a two star hotel located close to the Mall, which is the famous market place in Shimla. I had booked a family room so that all the four of us can be in the same room.
The room was very spacious and comfortable with all the amenities like color TV, telephone and other accessories. The floors and walls had a wooden finish and the family room had special kid beds for children. The children loved the bed very much. The attached bathroom had hot/cold running water and was equipped with all modern facilities for the comfort of the guests. There was a cupboard in which we kept our clothes and it was spacious enough to hold all the clothes. The sofa provided in the room was also comfortable and in good condition. The view provided outside the window was very beautiful and fresh air always blew in from the windows.
We decided to get the food in our room and made use of the room service available 24 hours a day. The local food and cuisines that we ordered was very tasty and we enjoyed every bite of it. Seeing that the Mall and the market place is within a walking distance from the hotel, we decided to visit the Mall in the evening. It was truly a wonderful experience and we bought a lot of items at the Mall. The Gaiety Theatre and the Lakkar Bazaar were also close to hotel which we visited later.
We had a three day stay at the Hotel Gulmarg Regency Shimla, and the stay was truly comfortable. The staff was polite and very helpful ready to be of any help. As laundry and dry cleaning facility was there, we had no soiled clothes to take back when we returned.since it was winter, they had provided room heaters which kept us warm and cozy. Blankets were also provided.
