The Quaint Homestay, Shimla

Shimla, the capital city of Himachal Pradesh is a gorgeous all year holiday destination. From museums, theater and colonial lodges to contemporary mall and charming cafes, from picturesque walking trails to vibrant bazaars – it has something for everyone. Between the bustling streets, musical evenings and cultural shows, if you need a place to calm yourself and enjoy the beauty of Shimla, you can’t miss this charming homestay. It is situated on the highest hill amongst the 7 hills in Shimla, the Jakhu hill. Falling in the green zone area, the property is located near the mall road region behind Christ Church and fulfills the requirements of anyone searching for mental peace. It is within walking distance to various tourist spots near Mall Road. 

It has a perfect blend of luxury and homely touch. Warm hospitality, delicious meals and super comfort is what the homestay is popular for. It has 3 floors, ground floor has parking, a level above is for guests, and the host family stays on the top floor. There are 3 clean and beautiful guest rooms with lovely views and attached bathrooms. The classic room is a small cozy room with queen size bed, mostly for people looking for a hideout from the busy city life. Superior Room is a spacious room with king size bed that overlooks the highest peak of Shimla. This beautiful English room gives off old school vibes. And the premium room offers the magnificent view of the Lord Hanumana statue located at the highest peak of Shimla.

The place is pet-friendly and the host has two loving dogs. Fast WiFi makes it perfect for workation as well. It is situated in the area where a lot of retired people, bureaucrats, judges and ministers live peacefully, so a no noise policy after 11 pm is adopted for maintaining the harmony between the dwellers.

Our stay experience was amazingg

our stay experience was amazingg!! We stayed here for almost a week. The cleanliness, service and cooperation was beyond our expectations. The food was super delicious 😍 Must try their dal makhani, Bhelpuri and momos - they prepare everything fresh so you should place the order about 1 hr before you want to eat. Every one is super cooperative and helpful. I had an amazing stay experience.

The best homestay I’ve ever been privileged

The best homestay I’ve ever been privileged enough to stay at. It gives a nice homely feeling and only gets more breathtaking as you walk in the room. Clean & fresh rooms and utilities and a great host providing a scrumptious meal to complete your day. Walking distance from the Ridge adds a cherry on the top!
