would anybody recommend a nice place in Shimla for up to 1500 Rs (off-season price) for double room? "Nice" means a place with clean rooms, ensuite bathroom, within walking distance (can be somewhat longer walking distance) to The Mall.

Hey there, can anyone recommend a package at Bandhavgarh national park that includes 3 drives in the tala zone? I think this would be 3 days and 2 nights. I know the Tala zone costs more but preferably something on the less expensive side for a package including the Tala zone. Thanks in advance!
