Appearance of the hotel was good

Posted 31 May, 2016

The hotel was not value for money. I had visited this hotel with my family. The hotel was ok. The location of the hotel was good. I didn’t take any food from the hotel. The best part of the hotel was appearance and location. Only TV was provided in the room in working condition. The room and bathroom was quietly clean. I would recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers. I would suggest this hotel to improve the service and cleanliness.

Attractive view of valley from roof

Posted 18 Aug, 2015

Very cleaned room. Drinking water hot or RO pure. Very well mannered staff. Smiling face of manager. Although street and surroundings are dirty but you will feel comfort and relaxed in well managed room. Good quality, delicious, fresh food in attached Sonam kitchen. The fragrance of magnolia flower is present in the environment of hotel which attracts tourist again and again. Attractive view of valley from roof of hotel. Traditional paintings give a different look to the walls.

The best and the most affordable in Darjeeling!

Posted 16 Aug, 2015

I booked this hotel after an extensive research on the internet and was really curious to find out how good it was. And we had an amazing time for the four days that we stayed over here. First of all, I would like to say is what attracts me to a hotel the most is hospitality and which is spot on over here . . Each and every staff as well as the owners are so polite and well-behaved, that itself would give you a reason to plan your stay over here when you are in Darjeeling. The hotel is situated quite close to the mall (Walking distance of just 2-3 mi) which itself is a great advantage. The rooms if not very spacious are very maintained and clean. The hotel owner arranged for all the sightseeing at a very reasonable rate. Although they don't have food but there are lots of options around the hotel which won't make this much of a problem. Make sure that you have breakfast at least once in Tom and Jerry which is right next to this hotel for awesome pancakes and sandwiches. This has become my permanent place of stay in Darjeeling for sure It has an amazing view from the terrace.

Good hotel to stay with good facility

Posted 29 Jul, 2015

I stayed there along with my family during a holiday trip. I had booked the hotel online and at every step of booking, the hotel staff assisted me and confirmed that it was as smooth as possible Upon my arrival, since the location of the hotel was bit far from the bus/taxi stand, I called them and they clearly guided me how to reach there. The front desk provided me a warm welcome and they arranged taxi for sightseeing (with a perfect driver) and provided breakfast, which was too delicious. The staff even helped me to develop my travel itinerary Rooms are small but neat, clean and good. The hotel has 3 floors for guest accommodation, If you can book the rooms in the top floor, then it would be much better. The middle floor is okay, but there is no good outside view and the disturbance from the noisy road will also be there. I stayed in that floor, and other than the noise, everything was fine. But I feel if you can have a room in the top floor, it would be much better. (Don't worry, you are free to go to the terrace from where you will get a magnificent scenic view of the surrounding) Since it is a bit far from the bus station, you have to walk a bit (climbing up) to reach the hotel. But the location is in the city center and once you reach there, every facilities would be very near to you. The surroundings are not very neat and only an expert driver can take a small car near to the hotel If I go to Darjeeling again, I prefer to stay in the same hotel.

Rooms are small but facilities are excellent

Posted 1 Jul, 2014

Rooms are small but facilities are excellent. They even served fruits as my wife had a fast. Staff are courteous and efficient. Only view is the window of neighbouring hotel. Four wheeler can not reach Hotel, hence one has to walk and use porter. Tariff is on higher side considering location.

Rooms were neat, clean and well-maintained

Posted 11 Jun, 2014

The location of the hotel was in the centre of the city. Staff was helpful and friendly. Rooms were neat, clean and maintained. We had food outside. Food was not available in the hotel. No activities arranged by the hotel. Interior of the hotel was excellent. Check in and check out on time. Darjeeling is average destination for travellers. I went there in April with family. It was a romantic trip. They should include breakfast.

Not bad for lodgers.

Posted 2 Jun, 2014

Hotel is only okay. Location is not so good. There is no view available from hotel. Rooms are comfortable but small. Basic facilities are provided in rooms. Warm water is also available in bathroom. They have not done any food arrangement is hotel. You have to take your meal outside. It was an adjoining restaurant from where they can arrange only breakfast on demand. It was not complimentary. Hotel appearance is nice. Booking front office and reception are perfect. Services are also very fine. There is no outdoor activity available. Darjeeling is a good place to visit. Hotel can be recommended only for lodging.

It was an expensive hotel

Posted 22 May, 2014

Room facility was very comfortable. Location wise, hotel was good. Look wise, hotel was very attractive. Food arrangement was very nice with veg. And non-veg. Varieties, food was delicious. Hotel was located at around 5 kilometer distance from Rinchenpong place, but it was far away to prime location. Pick and drop facility was available but it was very costly. All basic amenities were available in the room such as bed, sofa, blanket, bad sheet, TV, hot water, cold water. Staff service was excellent. Nice view was missing from the room. My room was normal. Reception was average. Activities were not present in the hotel. Kalulk destination is very quiet and beautiful place. I went there with my family.

Just manageable

Posted 7 May, 2014

We stayed there for 3 days. It was just the lodging. Hotel location was average. It is bit interior but not within the mall. I went there with my friends. We had taken 2 rooms there. Both rooms were neat and clean but not spacious. We took non-AC rooms. TV, hot water facility, and everything was available there. Rooms were good. Appearance of the hotel was also good. Darjeeling as a tourist destination is an excellent place. Check in and check out procedure was also excellent. We did not face any problem with that. It was just an average hotel. It was not a recommendable hotel. No view was visible from the rooms.
