Barowalia Resorts is the name of the Hotel Though it is not a Resorts but the way it is maintained from outside and inside it is wonderful .The Hotel has given almost all the facilities of a Resorts within. The Landscaping , the fountain the flowers etc are realy good, The view from the Hotel is marvlous.The rooms, the staff, the food is very good .Especialy the location, It is away from the crowd & near the mall Road (only a walking distance} sightseeng is also arrenged by the travel Desk. Actualy after booking this Hotel I visited onesite of a Reputed Travel Portal They have written it is a basic Hotel , away from the Mall Road etc.I thought of cancelling my booking but then decided to visit but I found it a nice place to stay and I think the tariff is very less according to the facilities provided.

We had an awesome time and great fun staying at Barowalia Resorts. Though, one has to climb a few stairs to reach the hotel but the warmth with which they recieve the guests is worth mentioning.
Me and my husband enjoyed our three nights stay at hotel- infact it was a home away from home!!!!
Food was good especially as they serve pure vegetarian food and Staff was cordial.
The room had open picturesque view of enchanting mountains and valley.
We enjoyed lots and will surely go back next year too.

Hello readers,
I just want to share my experience with you for my stay in Barowalia Resort in Shimla.
The hotel is located bit far from Railway station. But on the other hand the hotel is full of facilities i.e the rooms are spacious and the best part is the view you get from the hotel is amazing.
The Hotel has its own Disco so if you are a Disco freak then you can hang out in the basement of the Hotel that is why I recommned that is you visit Shimla just give it a try

Thanks

I had a pathetic experience of this hotel. The reasons:
The rooms are tiny and almost like a small shack.
Theres no view from the rooms, as the pine trees obstruct the windows.
The towels are dirty and unwashed, I had to go personally in their store and search for a few clean towels.
The curtains donot even cover the entire window!! Pull them on one side and the other end of the window is open!
The staff is not very helpful, Breakfast is served only after 08:30 am!!
Asked for Alu paratha and got onion instead, that too after 45 min wait, they didnt even have aluminium foil to pack it in and instead used newspapers to pack our parathas!! Can you beat that?
This is a ramshackle of a place and best is to stay away. Spolied my Shimla stay in this hotel.
And yes, the way to the hotel is pathetic, the climbing of the stairs and the overall surrounding is like you are entering some cheap and shady place.

Its not a resort, its a hotel with damp rooms and stinking carpet. Air exhaust is not available and rooms are damn cold with no heating. You can also see pillars in your small bedrooms. In Breakfast and other facilities I had similar experience. Their phone system does not work and you would need to go to kitchen to order morning tea. The manager there has the rights to fight with you as the hotel is owned by a shimla judge and you have no option to cancel the deal incase you want to. Pay, stay and crib coming to shimla. I would never visit Shimla/ Barowalia again. There are a lot more better hotels in Shimla, I had checked those out while I could do nothing after a fight to move out of the Barowalia.

This was my worst experience. Infact there was nothing as promised on the website. At the time of booking the website mentioned that the hotel has parking whereas there was no parking available.

The hotel didn't even have the basic amenities like towels.. I kept on repeatedly asking for towels but hotel couldn't give to me. Hotel didn't even have a remote for the television. My 2 days of stay was a nightmare. The food was terrible.

The rooms were stinking and the most amazing thing is that they dont clean the room after 5 in the evening.

Overall experience was terrible and this is the first time and the last time I stayed there. I expected it to be atleast descent since I booked it from a reliable source like cleartrip.com.

I was disappointed with my experience at this resort..I went there to relax for couple of days but ended up straining myself further..
