One of the best hotel in Darjeeling

6.8/7
Posted 21 Sep, 2015

I stayed at Swiss Hotel with my and three other families during 21st of June to 24th of June, 2015. I must say that we enjoyed a lot over there, Its a beautiful hotel which will remind you of British Era. The food was excellent !! The staff are very cooperative. We were 15 in number including kids. Everyone was happy and if got a chance to visit Darjeeling again, we will definitely stay at same hotel. It's a value for money. Situated at a key spot with walking distance from mall road, pretty decent view with spacious open area for leisure and peaceful time. Stood out for me during my two day stay were amazing homely staff, food and of course and free WiFi with decent bandwidth. In my experience Summit chain of hotels served excellent food which was much better than any other restaurant we visited out there in Darjeeling. So go ahead for a holiday in Darjeeling and dinner plan stay especially when with family. Totally worth it.

Rooms were neatly arranged and maintained. Had a iconic ambience. Food was very good and staff were supportive. They arranged all out travel schedule and bookings including Tiger hills and Toy Train. 1st floor rooms are better as they have fire place. Would recommend for a stay.

Close to Himalayas and worth the money

6.0/7
Posted 6 Jun, 2015

What else do you need if you get to stay in an old European property in Darjeeling which is strategically built to have the better view of the Kanchanjunga. Although costly its worth staying in this hotel as you can spend your entire day watching the slow changes and views of the mountains from every corner of the hotel. Food is very good.

Best stay; spacious rooms

4.3/5
Posted 9 Sep, 2014

It was indeed nice to stay in a property which is nearly 100 years old. Located on Gandhi Road, which is sort of pulse of hill town and a shopper's delight. Swiss hotel is strategically located so that you can enjoy the view of mountains form its cottages. Little artefacts from the bygone era of the British makes this little property special. Rooms are spacious. Our room has fire-place too. The huge window opened out to lot of greenery. Food is good, staff very courteous. Overall, a good place to stay while you are in Darjeeling.

3.9/5
Posted 2 Oct, 2014

We have stayed there for three nights with family. Its 110 years old property and maintaining its heritage legacy. Awesome appearance, we stayed in wooden cottage. It was spacious and fine for a family of two kids. Very well decorated room, staff were extremely polite and helping. Food was one of the highlight of the stay. It was delicious. Have to say this may be the best property in the town at this budget range. Highly recommended for budget travellers.
