"Small room & bad location"

3.7/7
Posted 5 days ago

Location is bad. All you could see through your window is a smoky terrace of a house. Rooms are small and geyser problem. It works sometimes and it doesn't most of the times. Tea and coffee is horrible. They use water and not milk.. Water was over in the night. Morning when we turned on the tap, it was in beige color. The muddy water. Woul....

Room was exactly the same I saw in the picture. Very nice experience, 5 min away from Mall road. Whenever we called them, they reached on time and their behaviour was so nice. We stayed for 3 days and wish could have stayed more...

"Good"

5.8/7
Posted 1 month ago

The overall of this hotel is very good, the view is awsum, the food is delicious, once you are in hills you feel hungry every time so this worth it, the bone fire are its main attraction. Spending time with family is the best option you have it in here. The atmosphere and the climates are so fresh you feel not coming home from there.

It was a nice stay. Food was good. Location wise it was excellent. Market is very nearer to it. It will give a homely feeling. Bus Stand is nearer too I. E just 5-10 mins it will take to reach either the market or bus stand.

"A charming Tibetan homestay with wonderful staff!"

5.9/7
Posted 1 month ago

The homestay is located on Gandhi Road which is around 5-10 mins 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 lugg....

"Great place to stay with nice facilities "

7.0/7
Posted 4 months ago

This hotel is an absolute gem. The nicest hotel I have stayed at in Darjeeling. If you want to stay near the centre of Darjeeling in a warm and friendly family hotel, this is the one for you. It's boutique tibetan decor and wood paneling are very atmospheric. You eat upstairs in the owner's family area, with them serving you as guests in their own home. It is great. The staff cannot do enough to help you, hot water bottles were lovingly provided every night, essential in the February cold of Darjeeling. We had views of Kanchenjunga from both our bedroom and the restaurant. Please stay there, you will be very pleasantly surprised at all it's boutique style benefits for such a budget price.

The homestay is located on Gandhi Road which is around 5-10 mins 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 !!

"Good rooms and good view of Himalayas "

6.4/7
Posted 4 months ago

Good room, it was well furnished and maintained. Wood paneling on floor and wall gives the feel of a luxury room. Prompt response from the staff for all our queries. Nice view of kanchenjunga. Staff are very friendly. Food was OK, though options are less. It is safe since it is prepared in home. Good for families and small groups.

"Nice hotel for successful memorable stay "

6.0/7
Posted 6 months ago

We had a great experience staying at that hotel, the rooms were spacious, food was good, great customer service, and nice view from the hotel point. There are many hotels where i stayed, but this was one of the best hotels. I like the variety of food they provide, which were tasty and delicious. The area where we stayed, was pleasant and nice with the mountains around, that moment i cherish for life because of the hotel. We were not much tried after a whole day of sight seeing. Overall i give 4 star rating to the hotel, and it made our tour successful, and an awesome experience, i recommend that hotel.

"Excellent experience & value for money"

5.1/7
Posted 4 months ago

Staying at the Snowlion was such a lovely experience in the hills of Darjeeling. Conveniently located in the heart of town but away from the taxi stand, we were treated so well by the awesome team of Snowlion. Right from breakfast in their top floor breakfast area to the hot water bottles in the night. We stayed in Feb so that warmed us up inside the covers. Room heater was also provided for. Linen was clean and service was good. There is a hot water geyser in the bathroom and towels were always fresh. If anything was needed, a quick ring to the reception was all that was to be done. Overall, a wonderful and satisfying experience.
