“My tour to Darjeeling”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

Very old building with very old and big rooms. I stayed there in March - service was not very good. It was bit expensive and not value for money. No restaurant service - you have to go out for food. Poor room cleanliness. You have to hire a porter to move your luggage as car does not go there at hotel's doorstep. Only advantage is , it is very close to mall. I would not prefer to stay there if I visit Darjeeling again

We have reached Darjeeling on 10th December with my family. We had a booking in a different hotel which was horrible for us. but we have shifted in this hotel, mainly the location of it. It is just on mall point. We have booked room no.24 and 27 here. Both the rooms are very good and well decorated. Specially room no. 24 is great. It has one another attached room inside. Toilets were good and clean. Staffs are also good and helpful. Only problem, the hotel does not have any restaurant, but staffs have provided us the tea when ever we asked them for that. Location of the hotel is the best one in Darjeeling for tourists. It was my sixth visit to Darjeeling but first stay in this hotel. It is a good hotel and I will like to stay here next time whenever I will go to Darjeeling.

I would give this 3.5 stars, if i could. This place is sort of benignly neglected, so you need to be careful. Probably best to stay if you show up in Darjeeling without a reservation, as they will bargain on rates, and room quality varies greatly, even within the same price category. Make sure they turn on the geyser and the sheets and towels are clean. Polite attention drawn to shortcomings will be addressed by the friendly, if spacey, staff.
Ask to see multiple rooms, and try to settle on ones facing south and or west. No traffic in this part of town, so there is no road noise, but you will hear barking dogs at night. It gets very cold as soon as soon as the sun goes down, but they will give you a hot water bottle upon request.
We ended up staying here twice, in Room 19, so it cant be that bad.

Room Tip: Room 19 is on a south and west corner and gets lots of sunshine. Make sure to visit a few rooms if y...

This hotel has a great location and has potential to be lovely. Unfortunately the poor maintenance and cleanliness let it down. We had booked ahead due to arriving in Darjeeling during a holiday period, had we not already paid a deposit we would not have stayed here. The first room we saw was a disgrace for the price (we have stayed in one-star places all over India that have been better for half the cost). We asked if any other rooms were available and moved to one with a good layout and excellent views however it was still shabby and filthy. The carpet and walls were grubby as was the bathroom, there were cobwebs all down the corners and attached to the bin, which wasn't empty of previous guests litter.This is the dirtiest room I have had in India and is unacceptable for the cost. I think some of the rooms are in better condition hence the decent reviews but we were very disappointed. It is a shame as the room could be lovely with a good clean, fresh paint job and carpet removed. The upstairs lounge area was nice but other than that nothing positive to say other than views. The staff were indifferent at best.

Room Tip: Ask to see as many rooms are available to get the best available. However, you could no doubt get mu...

I should thanks to the hotel manager & associated staff of the hotel for made my trip so beautiful. Always recommend this hotel for best to stay. Location wise its the first plot of Darjeeling Mall. So just move from your room and reach to Darjeeling Mall within a few second. Rooms are old but good. Fully furnished with wood. Hot water is always available.
Only you need to search for food, which is missing here. So if you are happy to stay nearby Darjeeling Mall, you can consider this hotel is one of the best to stay.
All together nice place to stay with family.

Me and my son, aged 8, spent there three nights. The advantage of the place is its location: it is built on one of the top ridges in Darjeelig, so if you are lucky and have a good weather, you may have a gorgeous view from both sides of snow topped mountains and green valley (we were not). We rented rooms in the heritage part of the hotel, which had been built more than a hundred years ago. But rooms were pretty simple, quite cold, so one should add the additional cost of heater to the basic price. The costly heater let to increase the room temperature another few grades. There was no kettle in the room, so we had to share one small kettle with the manager of the hotel. There was no hotel restaurant, so you couldn’t have breakfast or other meals in the hotel. On the other hand there is a street of food stalls and different restaurants very near, so in the day time it is not difficult to find something to eat nearby. Generally standard of the hotel is lower than three stars as it shows and thus much overpriced.
