“Hotel Prestige,Darjeeling”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Rooms are good, Location is Excellent near to Darjeeling MALL but view is not up to the mark. But i think view will be good from top floor.
You will get free WIFI service at Prestige with 24Hrs Gyser & water facility, which is very rare in Darjeeling at budget hotel.

Room Tip: Try to take room on top floor for better view

I stayed in this hotel for about 10 days in total in a couple of the different rooms. IT is clean and the staff were extremely helpful with anything that I needed, especially when during my stay I got sick for three days! However, there a few different room options and a couple of the rooms are very damp so I ended up asking to change to a room with more light and less damp. The shower was always hot and the rooms were clean so as a budget option in Darjeeling this hotel is a fine option. It was the helpfulness of the staff which really made up for some of the shortcomings in the facilities for me.

I stayed here at the end of high season so perhaps this was the reason I also couldn't get a good rate. The rooms were okay but I question the cleanliness. The first single room they showed me smelled highly of cigarette smoke. The second single room, where I stayed for three days, had bugs all over the towel that was neatly folded and laid on my bed. The third room, a double, I stayed in for one night (had to move since I didn't pre-book) was decent and had a western toilet. The rooms all suffered from a musty, moldy smell though. I didn't manage to get well-rested when I was here due to noise. The workers generally talk into the late night and some other employees blast music early in the morning. The highlights of the hotel were their mini library on the second floor and the free breakfast in the morning. The breakfast included buttered toast, milk tea, one egg (fried or boiled with salt and pepper), and oatmeal/cornflakes (with hot milk). The wifi and TV were a plus as long as the electricity didn't cut out. There's a shop that is up the street that's usually open into the late night for snacks or toiletries. There's also a good Shree Krishna restaurant up the steps when you make a left.

Room Tip: Go early and check out the room before you accept it. The ones higher up are quieter.

This place is very reasonable, free breakfast brought to your room. No damp like other hotels around here. Hot shower and excellent customer service. Also they have the cheapest laundry service we have seen in Darjeeling and it is a same day service too. I would stay here again!

This hotel is a little hard to find, as it is located on a stair case near the Big Bizzare shopping mall.

The hotel is very reasonably priced by Darjeeling standards, and good value in terms of the cleanliness and service. The location is also very central, and easy to get to Chowrastra and all the main attractions.

The rooms have cable TV, free Wi-Fi, and there is a generator for 24 hour electricity. Rooms range from 350 -500+ ruppees per night depending on the season.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. There are both Indian, and western toilets available in the bathrooms. Bathrooms Geysers work very well, and provide a long hot shower 24 /7 .

Rooms, while simple, are comfortable and clean, though the views are limited due to the location of the hotel.

Recommended for a budget stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on one side of the hotel are very close to neighbouring building so can smell musty -- get roo...

If you are traveling in Darjeeling and looking for a nice hotel with wifi and hot water that runs 24 hours (as opposed to others that runs only during the night), Hotel Prestige is the place to go. Staff are friendly, clean and cozy bed, some rooms doesnt have a view, but it's alright. It just gets noisy in the morning, our room is right in front of the reception. I recommend this place to travelers who are on budget. (400Rs - 600Rs).

Room Tip: Second floor has better views and a nice, cozy library in the corner.

As far as cheap rooms in Darjeeling go this one has a fair few extras that others in the area don't. The average room we found was 400 rps and had no facilities. For 500 at hotel prestige we got a tv, 24 hour running hot water and free wifi which is good value. However the building is located in an area that receives very little sun making the rooms bitterly cold in the winter. They will give you a heater for 12 hours for an extra 200 rps a day.

The problems we found during our stay, which didn't ruin it, but made it unpleasant were as follows: there was problems with the room phones. I don't know what was going on but for some reason at around 3am two days in a row every room phone in the hotel was ringing including our own. We answered and it was just music. Since some rooms were empty the ringing just went on and on. The second problem was that our room had a rat, we first noticed it on our third night when we saw it running all over our bags. There was a hole in the wall that it lived in and you could always hear it running around. It was surprisingly loud and kept us awake at night. Third problem would be location. It's downhill from the Chowrasta and up a huge set of stairs.

Overall our stay was enjoyable. The staff are lovely and were always willing to help and it's definitely value for money. Just avoid the double room on the top level. That's mouse territory.
