A charming Tibetan homestay with wonderful staff!

5.9/7
Posted 14 Jun, 2016

The homestay is located on Gandhi Road which is around 5-10 minutes walk from the Mall Road/Chowrasta, on a straight gradient. Due to peak season, we got two rooms on the top most (4th) floor (no views rooms). Note that, they don't have a lift, so it was a quite some climb upstairs. However, the staff were very helpful and they helped us with our luggage. The rooms were neat and clean, with hot water available throughout. The homestay does not have a restaurant. But they have a kitchen arrangement and serve breakfast, which was good. The breakfast was served in the 3rd floor, which was exquisitely decorated in Tibetan style. And this rooms offers you the amazing view of the Mount Kangchenjunga! You can also stroll to their roof top, and from there too you can have the view of the majestic mountains. They also have a lounge area beside their reception. This room has some good collection of magazines and novels, and also offers free WiFi. They can arrange for sightseeing Tours, but I found it was cheaper to have it arranged from the local taxi stand, which is just near the mouth of the Mall road. And the best experience for me was that during check-out, they presented each one of us with a (Tibetan Buddhist white scarf) and wished us for a good journey! Such thoughtfulness !!

Worth for the money; good hospitality

5.0/7
Posted 10 May, 2015

We people were on the trip to Darjeeling. My friend some how managed to book the hotel because we were in a hurry I think this is a good hotel. Nice location. It is very near to Darjeeling railway station, Bus stand and taxi stand. Darjeeling mall also very near from this hotel. The room was large for two people and they also provided hot water which is quite essential. The room was clean and cosy. The breakfast was good. Very good hospitality. Overall, the stay was very good and is recommended. Hotel rate little bit high. But at the end of the day overall experience was very good.

Recommendable to experience a family atmosphere

7.0/7
Posted 25 Aug, 2014

It has been a delightful stay at the hotel. The people and the staff were excellent with the homely touch, food was acceptable as one can expect away from home. Cleanliness was outstanding; perhaps the grooming of rooms was unbelievable, family too warm to make one feel like being at home. The owner is very enterprising and passionate about his family business, which is this hotel upkeep and recommended for people, families who want a family atmosphere and the delight of soft caring people around.

Good place to be but has water scarcity

4.8/7
Posted 18 Feb, 2014

A cosy place to be, owned by local Sherpas. You will get local food to eat on request. Breakfast was included in the hotel charges. The place gives you a feeling of being at home. The staff were good and friendly. This hotel was slightly far (15 min walk from main market) However, good place to be. Amenities provided were only a TV. AC was neither available nor required as the climate is super cool. Washrooms were clean. However, water in this area was a scarcity. Need to use it with care. Overall a good place to be and value for money.
