“Hopeless!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2010

What would you call a hotel where...
1. There is no water in evening
2. If you ask the room boy, why there is no water, or can he arrange something... He says, "Why did you not take bath in Morning!!!"
3. There is no Tap/Tissue roll near the pot... rest better not explained.
4. Geyser is there for sure, but it takes an hour to fill your bucket...

Hotel is at far end of Gandhi road where it is near to nowhere, It is good 25 minutes walk from Mall Road; and you cant reach from train station by walk..
One veg restaurant is nearby; thats the only saving grace.

Hotel advertises that it has restaurant, but it does not say you have to order your dinner by 5 PM.

Will not recommend this hotel...

This Lodge might suit a budget traveller... or I even belive there are much better budget hotels in darjeeling just walkable from this lodge for the same or slightly higher cost.

They would say they have internet, but that is not internet that is available at your room or neither internet that is available in a common system at the hotel. They stupidly are refering to internet that their manager can access on his laptop when he comes to office.

They would say they have a restaurant in the hotel.. but they only ONLY have tables and chairs and laid out space that looks like a small restaurant area.. but no food is cooked in the hotel, no food is offered at the hotel.. if you need they will buy it for you from outside and give you with buffer cost of course. They simply DONT have any restaurant operational inside the hotel.

They DON'T have a room heater or any cooler/heater facility, if you beg, they will give you an electric halogen heater for cost of 125/- per day, but only for maximum 2hrs a day. Electricity bill cost-cutting practises.

The same with Hot water supply.. they probably have only a central geyser and they switch it ON only one or half hour a day in the morning (or if you beg). Electricity bill cost-cutting practises.

We did not vacate the place though it had all the above problems or poor / zero facilities, we could adjust, and just used it as a lodge for the nights.. otherwise we spent the entire day outside sight-seeing the beauty of darjeeling and its kind people.
