Food served was good

Posted 26 Dec, 2016

In the month of November 2016 I stayed in this hotel. The location of the hotel was good and was located in heart of the city. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was good. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The service of the staffs in the hotel was friendly and helpful. The room allotted to me was good and it was well maintained with all required amenities in working condition. I did not eat food at this hotel. I did not observe any of the activity at this hotel. I had been to this hotel with family.

A hotel with comfort and good food

Posted 12 May, 2015

This hotel was not in the list when we planned our tour. But, as most of the hotels were pre booked, we were forced to search for a new one. We got this hotel near the Taxi stand. The staff were cordial, they even provided us with good food+ tour packages which were really in budget. The rooms were cosy. Neat and clean too. Hot water supply was 24 x 7 in bathroom. Food was good, specially the Bengali thalis. They even provided a taxi for dropping us to the Taxi stand from where we were to take on board journey towards Siliguri. Over all a very pleasant experience with the hotel

Good atmosphere & nice food

Posted 26 Sep, 2014

Location of the hotel was nice but hotel was not good. Atmosphere of the hotel was not good. Staff people were nice there. Look wise, it was like a lodge. We booked 4 rooms there. Two rooms were good but two rooms were not good there. TV was available in the room. Park area was seen from the room. Food was nice there. I went there with my family and friend's family for roam around. Hotel people were not provided any transport facility for sightseeing.

Budget hotel with comfortable room

Posted 21 Jul, 2014

its a good budget hotel situated just adjacent to the tsomgo lake taxi stand and quite high from gangtok MG marg with a 5 min. taxi drive. Morning view from hotel's room is very comfortable. you can play with clouds within your hotel room. Above of this hotel (i.e 2nd floor) there are a residence of "Lama". You can watch and witnessed of a lovely prayer as well as traditional music with mind blowing atmosphere. You can see strawberry tree at the top of the hotel. Always a homely feelings will move along with you throughout your stay at this hotel... Have a very good stay here.

Staffs are very cooperative,rooms are really clean

Posted 24 Oct, 2013

We visited Gangtok for the first time for a family trip, Distance from mall to hotel Sonali International is about 2 mins by local taxi, This hotel has good view of mountain from every room. Reception, restaurant and rooms are on the same floor so that your legs can get a rest after exploring the nature & sight seeing exertion. Staffs are very cooperative, rooms are really clean and bed covers - pillow covers are almost new.It was like a home stay.Most important, taste of foods here are like home made.

Food was average

Posted 12 Jun, 2013

The TVs in the rooms were small. Food was average. It is very conveniently located on the main road. And although they do not have own parking space, they could manage a parking space for my car.
