Great homestay out of the city”
Nice location about 30 mins drive from old shimla. Perfect for a getaway especially if you have a driver, but possibly a bit too far away if you want to spend a lot of time in town. The place is a huge mansion with a great view. Rooms are very spacious. Shivi the host is a really nice guy and extremely helpful. Breakfast and dinner were both delicious and come highly recommended.

Thank you for remembering us well past a year of your stay. The picturesque location of the property and the distances are mentioned under the "Useful Information or Some Helpful Facts" of our Agoda page. You might have forgotten there was road repair work going on outside the homestay at the time of your stay. Glad you liked the view from the balcony, comfortable beds and home-cooked food. Safe travels.

The following transport options are available: A) Public bus leaves from right outside our homestay (next to Sargheen bus stop) for the Mall Road (The Lift) at 09:00 AM & 10:15 A.M every day. It charges Rs.25/- per head for one-way transfer. B) The intercity bus transit at Panthaghati has buses lined up for the Mall every 10 minutes. They charge Rs.20/- per person for one-way transfer. The last bus to arrive at Panthaghati from the Lift/Mall Road is at 07:00PM. C) The buses do not have any specific number allotted to them but operate as per route permit assigned. It is best to ask the conductor/driver of the bus if they are stopping at or crossing Panthaghati. D) Private taxi charges Rs. 400/- to Rs. 600/- from Shimla railway station/bus stand/Mall Road (The Lift) to our house for one side transfer. The rate varies as per the type of vehicle chosen and season. It takes about 30-40 minutes for the public bus and 20-30 minutes for the private taxi for one side.

A Shimla get away!”
Aapo Aap was a wonderful get away with an amazing view and spacious rooms, it is a little far out from Shimla centre, however Shivi the host was extremely helpful with details on share taxi's into town etc., and other helpful advice, the only downside was the hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow, otherwise we really enjoyed the stay.

Kindness Personified”
We arrived in the wee hours of the morning but the staff & manager made us feel very welcomed & offered us hot tea & cookies at 05:00am! Location is stunning & observing the sunrise in the company of chirping birds was a treat to the senses. We were offered complimentary upgrade to Superior room - The room was huge with independent living room, spotlessly clean with all amenities one could wish for including in-room WiFi, room safe and refrigerator. Breakfast was freshly cooked and very reasonably priced. Public transportation is available from right outside the homestay. Highly recommended!

Quiet and Peaceful Vacation”
Helpful staff, Home made food, Great view of the mountains
We liked the place very much. Its a little far from the city center and moving to and fro from the city is slightly expensive as cabs charge 300-400 rupees one way. However, being away from the city makes it a lovely peaceful place stay. The owner has a number of dogs of rare breeds so in case you are a dog lover, you will like it even more.

A perfect getaway”
Ambience, Staff, Comfort
This was the first time that we opted for a homestay instead of a hotel, and we were very happy with our decision. When we arrived at Aapo Aap, we were impressed by the stunning views that the property had to offer - step out into the balcony and you are surounded by valleys on three sides ! Adding to it, the rooms are very big, neat and comfortable and the decor is very beatutifully done. Shivi and his family are excellent hosts and go to lengths to make sure that their guests feel comfortable in every aspect. We enjoyed spending time with him discussing many things over food in the dining room. The breakfast and dinner served is just awesome. And yes, the staff at the homestay are amazing too - very courteous and helpful. For a couple scared of dogs, we fell in love with Coco- Shivi's quiet and very sweet Irish fetter.. We were sure about not taking a place in the busy Mall Road area in Shimla and wanted a peaceful place instead, and although Aapo Aap is a good 10 km from the city, it perfectly fit our needs. It was my wife and I who visited this place this time around but we are sure to return to this wonderful place with our families early next year. To people who want peace of mind and want to spend some quality time with their spouse/family, I would strongly recommend this place.
