“great rooms, great location, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2011

Staying at Shangri La really made our holiday in Darjeeling. We'd recommend it to you.
We stayed for a week in this very friendly and perfectly located hotel. We felt extremely well looked after by the staff who went out of their way to help us with anything we needed. The rooms were spacious, warm and clean and at the same time retained their colonial charm with wooden floors and open fires.
The central location on a pedestrian street in the heart of Darjeeling meant that we could easily walk to many local sights, including the zoo and main square, and the children could go and explore independently whilst we enjoyed drinking tea and watching the street life go by.
We ate in the restaurant many times. All the food was great and there was a wide choice; the children really liked the tandoori chicken.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Shangri-La alot, the staff was extremly friendly and very helpful and the rooms are spacious and comfortable with a nice view over the busy market. The hotel location is perfect. Only slight downside is for India / Darjeeling the price, but the room cleanliness and size as well as the service make up for this :-)!

We ate here one night- waited for at least an hour to get our food, when customers coming long after us were served first. There was only one cook and half a dozen waiters who seemed determined to not pay amy attention to us. The food, when it finally came, was good, but worth the wait? Lovely log fire, but they're overstretching themselves with only one cook for such an ambitious menu!

I stayed at the Shangri La Hotel in Darjeeling in Spring 2010. , The comfort and warmth provided in the rooms as well as the attention and care of the staff, made the holiday memorable. The rooms were clean and well maintained, and any assistance was only a "ring" away. The best Oriental food in town, ensured that a meal a day at the hotel was in order.
Add to that the tall, imposing yet affable and friendly presence of Sonam Lama-and you would never fall short of a friend who proffers valuable advice on anything from a trip or buying good tea or Tibetan curios, or even sharing the local "buzz"! All in all a great stay- and one to remember and savor

We stayed at the Hotel Shangri-la for a few nights and were very comfortable. Loved the wooden rooms and open fire and slept well under a mass of comfy blankets!
Breakfast was nice and a treat to be served to your room as there was also a seating area in the very generous sized room.
We also ate at the restaraunt serving a wide range of local cuisine. The staff were very attentive and I would thoroughly recommend both the hotel and restaurant.
