Lovely home stay. Shiv is a character, most helpful. Shimla is beautiful. Food at the home stay was delicious but dinner was overpriced (however, take away options available). Would stay again. Thank you

Value for money, Shivi will be your host, guide , friend and more in shimla. Great food and support staff, will come again. Great view in family room with balcony. Will visit again. Some points to note: A bit far from city, you end up paying for taxi. Other than that when you pay 5k in off season for the...

I have been in Shimla before, but this time I was there for a complete relaxation prior to join a new job and I could think of none but a hill station nearby for such rejuvenation, but a hotel with a great hill view was must for me. After a thorough research on internet I finally chose Aapo App Home...

We had a very nice stay at Aapo. The host is a REAL HOST. Friendly and always there when you have a question or you need something. Room was very big and very clean. Nice shower with warm water. Very special view over the valley and the mountains. Everything was okay and fine. We enjoyed it very much.

After a long and rather trecherous journey into Shimla we were in low spirits when we got into the cab on the way to Aapo Aap. However as soon as we walked through the front door, we were welcomed and felt instantly at home in Shivi's beautiful home. The host made every effort to make us comfortable and looked after....

Location: Aapo Aap is an hour's drive from Shimla rail station (with traffic), and is reachable by taxi for ~RP500. The location is well-known to the taxi drivers so we did not have any trouble locating it. We absolutely love the location of Aapo Aap as it is situated in a quiet area with amazing view of the hills. The...

This place is little far from main shimla i.e. Mall Road but its location and view of the valley compensate for it. Owner Mr. Shivi is very helpful and always willing to go the extra mile to do things right. Rooms were very spacious with all amenities. Food was homecooked and staff was well behaved. First time we stayed in...
