Quaint little family run hotel

Posted 27 Jan, 2016

nestled in a quite part of the city, with bamboo shrubs on one side and steep hill side on the other, the outer facade of the hotel is rather unimpressive. When we entered the hotel through a small passage to the reception, I was in two minds whether we should shift to a more fancy hotel. But when the ever smiling Mr Norbu Bhutia, the proprietor cum manager , showed us our room ( room no 1 ), it was like WOW ! A big well furnished room with fantastic view of the city and the mountain. Gyser, room heater, double blanket, every thing that one needs in the month of December. One can have one's morning cuppa in bed and watch sunrise over Kanchenjunga. But the USP of the hotel is its dining area and terrace. Decorated in Sikkimese style with abundant flowers all around, it is a visual delight. Fresh food cooked in the adjacent kitchen is served piping hot to the guests. One must try their homemade pancake and Momo - simply delicious! And the management believed in the motto " service with smile". If someone wants a quite memorable holiday in the cleanest city of India, try this hotel. P.S : Richerd Gere, the hollywood superstar, stayed in room No 1 in April,2013.

Awesome Pandim with nicely decorated big rooms

Posted 8 Jan, 2016

It's our bad luck that we've selected this hotel for 1night stay.. The story is like that:- After a long day journey from Zero point to Gangtok mis-happed with landslide, we've checked in by 10:30 PM at night. The hotel staffs asked us whether we're medically or physically fit after this long hectic journey.. They prepared very light food and warm water for us and served at room that night.. At morning at the breakfast table we amazed with the view of Terrace garden restaurant and food quality.. We're still regretting why one night only.. Rooms were big. Nicely decorated and comfortable.

Nice view, good food, cooperative staff, value for money

Posted 27 Oct, 2015

We visited Gangtok in April 2014 and stayed in Hotel Pandim. We didn't get a mountain view room as all the view rooms were booked but the view from the roof and dining area is really nice. the ambiance of the dining area is very soothing to spend the evening or morning. room is spacious enough and clean with all amenities. staff was very cooperative. and the food was very good... from tea to dinner with plenty of options. we tried Tibetan breakfast which was fun and tasty. you can get car for sight seeing from hotel itself . But we got another car from outside in a cheaper rate. The manager was a bit busy with foreigners but he is very helpful. I asked to use his computer for 1 hour and he accepted with a smile. The locality is calm and quiet and the market area is just 10 mins walking through shortcut way though it is a bit tough for aged persons. overall we enjoyed our stay in this hotel and recommend for others...

Excellent room with view of Kanchenjunga

Posted 21 Aug, 2015

We stayed for 11 days in Gangtok. We changed to 3 hotels with Kanchanjanga view...but Hotel Pudim... R. no. 101 surpasses all...I will go again longer stay. The room has two major views 1) 180 degree Kanchanjanga range Sunrise view. You feel like shake hand from bed. 2) It is on the edge, entire city of Gangtok & long valley view for 180 degree is open to have a bird eye view of the city & valley....Romm is hanging in the space. Night view of lighted city & valley is beyond words. I would give 7 out of 7 to Padim. Food was good...even we got Kichadi & Kadhi. Taxi to go down to M.G. Rd is easily available. A momo restaurant is also within the building. The hotel is on the back of Palace & Sachivalay....excellent cleanilness. I recommand to one & all.

Good view and staff are very helpful

Posted 30 Jun, 2015

I stayed in Hotel Pandim for two nights in November 2014 during our trip to Sikkim. Its a place which is a little difficult to find and is a little away from the main Gangok town. The hotel is well kept and the rooms are warm with wall to wall carpet (thank god for that). The hotel provides Tv in all the rooms and the bathrooms are equipped with hot water geysers. The rooms are big with beautiful view of the town as well as the Himalayas. The restaurant is on the top floor and has beautiful ambiance. The food is nice and is home cooked. The restaurant also has open view where you can cherish your breakfast and sip in your tea and enjoy the view. The staff is very cooperative and looks after your needs. Dorje was extremely helpful and took good care of ours. The rooms are not on the ground floor and there is no elevator available. So, if you are travelling with old age people who cannot climb the stairs please avoid this place This is a no frill and simple hotel which is duly recommended.

Good budget hotel with cooperative staff

Posted 10 May, 2015

This was our second visit to this hotel,previously we went in 2010. Since 2010 We have seen a huge improvement in interiors of the rooms. Rooms were excellent with all amenities provided.Food was average but they served in rooms if you ask for it. Hollywood superstar Richard Gere had stayed in this hotel.The hotel location is excellent, you can take a stroll in a park located nearby or sit in open restaurant to take a sip of coffee. M G Marg the most happening place in Gangtok is located nearby.The hotel staff is very polite,well behaved and cooperative.The hotel arranged transportation for us at reasonable price. The only downer would be that they serve dinner quite early. The kitchen closes by 8PM. Other than this issue I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel even better this second time.

Posted 13 Jun, 2011

You can get a glimpse of the entire Gangtok city from this hotel and you can also see the entire valley.The location is quite and serene. Well connected to all parts of the city. The manager Mr Kesang Norbu Bhutia is a very co-operative gentleman who ensures prompt service. The hotel staff is cheerful and polite. Kitchen is neat and clean and you can taste Tibetian cuisines there in the rooftop restaurant beautifully decorated.Our family had a pleasant experience there.

Excellent facilities; well-maintained rooms

Posted 18 Dec, 2014

I did not face any problem while finding the hotel it was suited in convenient place. The staff behaviour was good and helpful nature. It was relaxation with trip with my family. The rooms provided to me were neat and clean well-maintained with basic amenities. There were no problems while check-in and check-out. The appearance of the hotel from internal and external was very nice. There were activities like swimming pool and gym facilities. The room was neat and clean but there were no AC in the room. There was no parking facility. I would like to visit again in the same hotel even like to recommend to other traveller.

Good experience

Posted 17 Jul, 2012

Excellent base to stay for a trip to Sikkim. Clean, comfortable rooms, delicious home made food, and extremely hospitable staff. Its a home away from home. They arranged all our sight seeing trips also to perfection. We will definitely go back to sikkim for another stay at this Hotel.

Wonderful stay; dining area was beautiful

Posted 23 Jun, 2014

We stayed in hotel Pandim, Gangtok in the month of June. It was a wonderful stay there. The rooms are spacious. The washrooms are also clean. It was just another home for me and my family. The manager, Mr Kesang was quite helpful in arranging the cabs for us for local sightseeing and for transfer to Darjeeling. We enjoyed the food also. Mr Ramu would prepare the food for us even in odd hours. The dining area is beautiful with good decor. The small garden outside the dining area with beautiful flowers is good. You can see the whole city from the terrace and the balconies of the room. We would like to stay there again.
