My partner & I stayed here for an extra night as we loved it so much. Clean room with linen & towels incl. Bed was firm but slept well. Shower ok, not great. Location: some wouldn't be happy with the 20min trip from Shimla but it rewards you with serenity & a glorious view. The food (breakfast & dinner) were excellent, all cooked fresh & large quantities. Shivi the host & the staff are wonderful. Ask him anything, he's so obliging. Laundry good & wifi good. Excellent place to stay! Thank you!
It was wonderful to have you with us as our guests. We are truly delighted to know that you thoroughly enjoyed your experience of the homestay - the clean & comfortable room, the "incredible views" and home cooked food. We look forward to welcoming you back. Warm regards, Shivi - Innkeeper.

I was thoroughly impressed by the kindness and hospitality of the staff at Aapo Aap. They not only loaned us a mobile phone so that we could call back to the homestay at anytime, but also loaned me an extra jumper for the day. They really went out of their way to make our stay in Shimla enjoyable. The room and bathroom were spotless, the view extraordinary and the monkeys in the garden delightful. The hot water was also great, especially given the cold! I can't recommend it enough.
Thank you so much for your warm and positive review. We are delighted to hear that you had an enjoyable stay and were able to benefit from what the homestay retreat has to offer, as well as appreciated our genuine hospitality. Warm regards, Shivi - Innkeeper

This is a unique place run by a unique and lovely Indian family. Shivi is totally focused on his guests as are his staff. Rooms are palatial. Quality of everything excellent. Home cooked meals served in the dining room. Great views over Shimla. A wonderful quiet retreat. Cannot praise enough. Great value. The only slight negative is the homestay is located on the edge of town and taxis/buses are necessary.
It was wonderful to have you with us as our guest. We are truly delighted to know that you thoroughly enjoyed your experience of the homestay - its peaceful location, home cooked food and the spacious, clean rooms with a view. Your generous compliments for the staff and the hospitality are much appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you back. Warm regards, Shivi - Innkeeper
