“cozy and homely”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

we stayed in this hotel in the rainy seasons of july....as it was off season we got the room at discounted price....we stayed in a room with a double bed and an extra bed...we paid a meagre 1100 rs per day....the room was cozy....it had a British touch....but as it was an old property it was some what damp...you can also blame it on the weather......what i specially liked about the room was that it came with an impressive storage space which you can use for dressing up also...and also the bathroom was large and clean.....during our stay we had food in the hotel itself....the food is homely and tasty...a lil pricey though....the stuff was also well behaved and helpful....and not to forget about its location...just down the mall road...where u can reach in 2 mins....only thing is i wished there was light on that road....and many a times we found couples having a cozy chat down the road.....well anyways as long as it is safe i could not complain.......

if i had to go back again to Darjeeling...i would definitely stay in this hotel....

Room Tip: rooms with balcony facing the road..

Alice Villa,located beside the much-hyped about The Elgin and near the mall,is one of the biggest hotels in the town and probably the best value-for-money hotel.The biggest plus-point of the hotel is the hospitality and the cordiality of the staff and the hotel owner,Mr.Pradhan.The fact that tall figures such as Anjan Dutta and Satyajit Ray graced the hotel just adds to the experience.The hotel staff are always eager to help.We went to some nearby places and they arranged for cars just as we told them our interests.We stayed in two different rooms and both were good.They were clean and big.The bath rooms are quite good and suits both domestic and international travellers.The rooms have multiple rooms and therefore perfect for those travelling with families and friends.This hotel is one of the few hotels which have a 24 hrs water supply.As for the food,we just had one night's dinner and it was good and satisfactory.I would recommend this hotel to those travelling with their families and budget travellers(both domestic and international).

Excellently located , just below the Mall Road , this hotel is value for money . This was the second time I stayed here and was very satisfied with the stay . The rooms are big , clean and cosy . The Fireplace is brilliant . The food menu is limited , but whatever is on offer is made very well . Mr. Pradhan, the owner , goes out of the way to arrange everything you want .

Room Tip: ROOMS 2,3,&4 , which have a fireplace.

Superb in hospitality and well-mannered staffs along with owner of the hotel 'Alice Villa' Dhiren Pradhan. We will avail the opportunity of staying again in this hotel when will go there in future. The fireplace system gives remembrance of old days of British era. At the same time this hotel carries the sweet memory of staying of actors of 'Kanchenjunga' film of Satyajit Ray. We felt here to stay in a home away from home particularly for its location, service of all staffs, neat & cleanliness & good quality of food.

Room Tip: Rooms with fireplace at ground floor.

We booked rooms based on the rating on Trip Advisor and it was a let down.. I guess the problem lies more due to the fact that in Darjeeling getting a room in the peak season is a challenge and more so at the tariff what is charged for a centrally located hotel.. The town itself is coming apart with filth everywhere and choked & potholed roads.. If at all somebody wants to visit the town I would suggest people to look up some place on the outskirts of the town and visit the town for a days' visit for shopping on mall road, chowrastha, Japanese temple, peace pagoda, breakfast at Keventersor or Glenary's or Frank Ross etc.

We went during the month of March. The hotel rooms in the new wing are cosy, clean & good for stay.The room was not very big but the facilities were good.Food was tasty, service was prompt.However we looked at the old rooms & didnt liked it much.The location of the hotel is close to the central point, the Mall of Darjelling.
