“A nice boutique hotel with great service, view and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Location: Rating 3.5/5
1) Just opposite Shambhu Hotel on the Gandhi road, just 5 minutes walking distance from entry point of Mall
2) Car stops directly at hotel premise unlike many hotels in Darjeeling specially the hotels in Mall
3) Has individual parking facility. Per night costs Rs 200/-

Property: Rating 4.5/5
1) This boutique hotel comprises of 5th and 6th floors of a residential apartment. The hotel is only two years old
2) The most advantageous is the building having automatic capsule lift which is a rarity even in higher category hotels
3) Great view from majority of the rooms. Incase some room do not have view of Kanchanjangha, one can have a lovely view from balcony, fantastic view from restaurant and terrace
4) Aesthetically decorated with modern furniture

Rooms and Toilet: Rating 4/5
1) Two categories of rooms are there – one with a better view of hills but smaller in size ( approx 130 sq ft) and another one relatively larger (160 sq ft) with accommodation as 1 King size bed and 1 extra cot. Both the rooms are aesthetically designed and decorated to feel cozy and warm. Larger rooms have 32 inch LCD TV
2) Toilet is standard with standard geyser fitment and no problem of water unlike many hotels in Darjeeling where there is scarcity of water

Room Tip: Choose 203 for more number of guest and 204 for better view

Service: Rating 4.5/5

1) Most important thing is hotel not keeping my room on hold just on the basis of mail booking and no advance money was required. Guests are however requested to pay some amount as advance in peak season
2) All the staffs are cordial and service is prompt.
3) Special mention to owner Chogyal and counterpart Nima for ensuring the guests are happy. Chogyal also arranged for internet in his laptop for important mail/monetary transaction and we did not have to move outside the hotel
4) Hotel arranges for package tour at moderate rate though we had our own conveyance previously arranged and did not opt from the hotel
5) Hotel helping in preparing my kids’ meal in pressure cooker free of cost

Cuisine: Rating 4.5/5
1) The hotel though does not have a wide array of choices in terms of food but covers the majority of the common items for most taste buds having Indian, Continental and Chinese preparation
2) All the items that we tasted were really delicious covering Alu paratha in breakfast, Laccha paratha, Chicken curry – Indian style and Chicken Chowmein and Chilli Chicken as Chinese cuisine. The food tastes all the more tasty couple with the fantastic view of Kanchanjangha from restaurant

Memorable Moments:
1) While checking out, each member presented with a white silk scarf as mark of memento, well being and safe journey of the guests
2) Two lovely pets – Kattu and Shinje making jolly faces at the guests

Areas of improvement:
1) Credit card facility is not yet ready
2) Internet café/WIFI not present
3) Currently the hotel has only 10 rooms and can be full in peak season.

Room Tip: Choose 203 for more number of guest as it has an extra bed and comparatively bigger and 204 for bett...
