Sitting at the quieter end of the Shimla Mall Road, Clarkes Hotels is one of the oldest hotels in Shimla. It’s simple, clean and elegant with a Tudor style exterior and warm comfortable English interiors. Surrounded by floor to ceiling glass the Dining Hall offers panoramic views of the surrounding forests, hills as well as the city and when the weather is warm enough The Terrace looks out to the open skies. Rooms are modest but tastefully furnished; go for the Deluxe Room to enjoy better views of the surrounding hills and city. The Oberoi group manages the property so expect good service, cosy beds and modern conveniences. We feel this is one of the best value options in Shimla.
