Hotel Prestige
Reviewed 4 August 2012

We had recently stayed at the prestige hotel as it fits our budget during our last visit to Darjeeling and was pleasantly surprised. The management has changed. The hotel is now run by a lady who has now changed the look of the small lodge. The rooms are clean, service good and the staffs always ready to help with a smiling face.

Parts of the hotel are being renovated and from the first looks of it , I see Prestige regaining its fame of being a friendly family run hotel of the 70s.

Wish the new enthusiastic team of prestige the very best and look forward to coming back

Reviewed 10 April 2012

Time of visit April 2012.

When you imagine what a hotel looks like – you think of a nice building with an impressive name board and a beautiful entrance. You will not find any of these in “The Prestige”. To enter this hotel you have to climb a very narrow (and filthy) stairway. This stairway goes right up a hill. It is actually a very busy stairway. While climbing these stairs you will find water dripping from the flats above. After climbing about sixty steps you will see a very simple room on the left. You will never even guess this is a hotel!

We had booked two rooms for three nights but left the very next day. The managers at the desk were very arrogant and rude. On reaching the hotel we were told that the flushes don’t work in the toilets and we would have to use a bucket to flush. They never even provided a small cake of soap and when we asked they said they don’t provide soaps. We have booked one of the rooms for three people but they only gave two towels and refused to give an extra towel.
Surprisingly, we found much better rooms at lower prices just nearby. All these hotels nearby do look like hotels. While leaving the hotel the managers didn’t even bother to ask why we were leaving the next day.

I made it a point to write this review in public interest. We had booked this hotel through a travel agent who had knowingly or inadvertently concealed information that would have made us look for a different hotel and the Internet did not also show the truth. In fact I found only two photos in Google showing the sign board (and stairway) of this hotel. The reviews in blogs never gave a hint of the real place. I have taken lots photos of the rooms and entrance. Trust me – if you really want to enjoy a holiday in Darjeeling – stay elsewhere. You will find lots of decent hotels.
