“Hotel at Darjeeling - Alice Villa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

This is one of the oldest family owned hotel of Darjeeling. Good for family,couple or solo traveller. Quite near the Mall, only 2 minutes walk. Spacious,clean rooms & bathrooms. Polite and ready to serve staff members.They do have a dining hall to serve meals to guests, but orders for meals has to be placed beforehand, as they do not have a restaurant facility. Plenty of restaurants are nearby only, including Glenary's and Keventars. Sightseeing tour arrangements are done with prior intimation.Tariff is moderate, within Rs.1500/- to Rs.2500/-. They doesnot have any mountainview room. But mountains can be seen within 2 minutes walk from hotel. All in all a very nice cosy place to spend vacation. We stay here nearly once, every year.

Room Tip: Take any room.

If you know the history of Bengal's summer capital and miss the charm of an erstwhile era, this is the closest you get to after Windamere, at a much more affordable rate.
Red carpet, Fireplace, wooden walls (these rooms are in the old wing of the hotel) makes for a cozy comfortable stay.

The service is average with basic needs attended to. It's more a guest house than a hotel.

If you notify them in advance they will also prepare your meal... Much like a delicious home cooked food..

Very centrally located, with the mall at a stone's throw...

This Holi, we, ie 3 of us, friends, for the last 50 years, reached Darjeeling, and checked in at the Alice Villa. A hotel just stone throw from the Mall. Pradhan welcomed us with a warm smile, and arranged for a 3bedded room on the ground floor. The red carpeted veranda with the raj day furniture and antique but functioning stove floored us. The room no.7 which was alloted ot us was a spacious and comfortable one with a fireplace in the room. The tea and breakfast was grand. The staff was ready to serve even at odd hours. We had a nice time with the fireplace warming us in the evening. The dinner was spartan but wholesome. We are looking for a relaxing weekend at the hotel with our family and would like to be in the room no.2 or3 which are of duplex type with the sleeping arrangements on the upper floor.

Room Tip: Look for the duplex rooms on the grounds floor.

Dainty old style property with clean rooms. Our room was in 2 floors, with the bathroom below and a nice and cozy fire place and living room also along with. The bed room above was spacious. Very well located, centrally in the middle of Darjeeling.

I was part of a Group of 18 relatives between 10 years and 70 years who stayed here for a day. The place reminded us of our childhood when we stayed in hotels with ambience that still exists in this hotel. Best part of the hotel is its closeness to Mall and the personal care taken by Mr. Pradhan to ensure our smallest needs are attended to. This personal attention and care was appreciated by both young and old. The food was excellent, the service was timely (Mr. Pradhan was up and supervising his team personally at 6 am in the morning to provide us hot packed breakfast ). Bed linen were clean and bathrooms were large and well maintained. The only issue was carpets which were pretty old and if these are changed the experience could have been even better. However the hotel is value for money.

Room Tip: Room no 8 and 9 and above them would provide better light and are nearer to the canteen hall.
