We stopped over for a night in this hotel on our way to Pelling. The people who knows the road from Darjeeling to Pelling, knows how bad idea it is, and now I know too! :) But we are here to talk about this hotel, and it was a wonderful experience. The check-in process was smooth, we were quickly taken...

Location of this hotel is the biggest USP. Close to the Mall just below Glenary's. Ours was a pitstop for convenience and it suited the purpose very well. The rooms in 3rd floor give good views. 24Hrs hot water is a luxury in the heart of Darjeeling indeed! Staff is super helpful and very accommodative. This hotel definitely stands out...

The person assigned to our room was pro-active in anticipating our needs and fulfilling them. WiFi is restricted to the reception. Our room did not have the view of Kanchenjunga but...

We had booked a suite room. When we checked in we realized it was on 4th floor (no lift) and the bedroom is on attic! Hence though we had paid higher price we settled into a deluxe room on 2nd floor. The room was very small. Since we wanted an extra bed all other furniture were moved out. There was...

We went to Darjeeling on 26th April. Weather and road was good from Gangtok till Darjeeling. As n when you reach Darjeeling, you will find garbage all over, it's such a crowded and stinking place that you will ask yourself why did you come here. Sunrise was worth, except that there is nothing much to do. We stayed in Sonar...

Conveniently located just behind the Glenary’s. The walk to the mall is comfortable. The view from the upper floor rooms is fantastic. The service is good and food is also above average. However, if you are in Darjeeling, you will definitely try out other restaurants. Overall a good experience and we would like to go back to this hotel.
