Hotel Dolphin
Ranked #72 of 125 Darjeeling B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 March 2013

For mid priced hotels, this is not a bad place. Can be categorised into a no frills hotel with adequately clean rooms with good view and location. Getting a hotel on or near mall road can be a tough task sometimes but this find made for a comfortable trip. Walk down to mall road and be spared of the noise of the buzzing market. I did face a few problems such as hot water wasn't readily available and I had to ask for assistance; the hotel was locked when I had to leave for tiger hills sunrise view at 4 a.m.; they charge extra for room heater.
I did not get to try the food here as I prefer trying local food at all times.
Overall, the stay was nice.
My room had magnificent view of tiger hills (valley facing).

Room Tip: Keep a torch handy, a part of the road towards this hotel from mall road was not lit, during my stay

This is quite a nice little hotel. Currently they are doing some renovations before the high season, so I imagine that this hotel will be quite nice when it is finished.

The rooms are quite nice and well maintained and furnished by Indian standards. The hotel does have rooms that face directly towards Khanchendzonga also --- but in Darjeeling it isn't so often the weather is clear anyway, so you might not see the views!

This is a mid-priced hotel in Darjeeling, and it is in quite a quiet area. It is a little out of the main shops, restaurants area-- and at night or if raining may seem to isolated for tourists. That said, the mall road, that the hotel is on is one of the most beautiful areas in town, and if the weather is clear, the views are amazing.

The service is adequate, but nothing special. Stay here if you want a comfortable room that is in a quieter, more peaceful part of the town, and you are happy to pay midrange price.

Their is no internet, but the hotel had back up electricity generator, and 24 hour hot water.

Room Tip: Khanchenjunga facing rooms are available, and would offer amazing views at the right time of year.
