The Oberoi Cecil - Shimla

Over 100 years old, The Oberoi Cecil is a Grand Heritage Hotel. It is situated at Chaura Maidan, Shimla, 7000 feet up in the Himalayas.

A celebration of the elegance and grace of the Colonial era in the Queen of Hill Stations, located in the majestic Himalayan ranges, The Oberoi Cecil is very much a part of Shimla’s colonial history. The hotel has been restored to its original grandeur with wood floors, period furniture, crackling fires and an inviting ambience. Built around a beautiful atrium, the rooms offer splendid views of the mountains and valleys.

Built in 1884 as a Himalayan hill station, the hotel has been extensively renovated and reopened in 1997. With fabulous views across the valley, The Oberoi Cecil is a perfect base from which to explore the spectacular mountain scenery, cedar forests and ancient monasteries of this world famous destination.
