My stay at the Classic Guest House was from November 25 to November 27, 2016. It's just 2 minutes walk down the happening Mall area (where you can shop, eat or spend time with family or friends just by sitting in the side garden chairs..having tea/coffe..enjoying the view). The owner of the Guest House Mr. Rajen Sing was always responsive...

We had a wonderful stay here, arriving with a warm welcome and very good service from the staff throughout our stay. Chandra has been a great help! The guesthouse is located close to the top of the mall, with great views looking out over the mountains East of Darjeeling and very close to plenty of food options.

Great place for our short 5 night stay. Spacious clean rooms with balcony. Spotless bathroom and a lovely breakfast to start the day. The owner, Mr. Rajen Singh Chettri, was so helpful with our initial enquiries from Europe, letting us know the slightest detail we required. The staff were super helpful and can not be praised highly enough. Our only...

The Classic Guest House is a heritage building of Darjeeling, originally owned by an American dentist. It is also known as 'Dnat kothi'. Two minutes from the mall. Extremely well maintained, the building is a treat in itself. Excellent view of the mountains. Prompt and polite staff. Mr. Chhetri, the owner, is a very helpful gentleman. They serve nice tea...

Is not easy to find in Darjeeling a good and cheap place to stay, even off season, but Classic Guest House is all you need. Clean and super friendly staff. Well located (quite noisy during the day) I experienced other options, but for sure this is a very good option for quality-price relation.

We stayed in Classic Guest House fro 4 days from 27-May to 30-May 2016. It was really home away from home. We have enjoyed a lot there with bigger rooms than usual with a private balcony for each room from where you can view the Mt Kanchenjunga range. Pros: 1. Rooms were very clean with 2. 24 hours hot water...
