Hospitality was great. Well trained staff. Room were good though small in size and We had an issue with the hot water in the shower.
The Food in the restaurant was awesome. Location of Hotel is also ideal. Overall a very good place to stay. Definitely recommend it if you are looking for hotel which is proximate to the center but also offers quiet, peaceful and scenic beauty.

Our 3 night stay at Seven Seventeen helped make our trip to Darjeeling one we will not forget. We loved the hotel's Tibetan atmosphere and culture....the vibrant decor, the rhythmic sounds of chanting in the restaurant, and most importantly for us, was the owners' warm and welcoming approach that included chats about her family and her country. Our room provided all we needed and was clean and comfortable. Staff were always friendly and provided timely service. We were close to many of the places we wanted to visit and the hotel assisted us to get to more distant locations. Seven Seventeen was recommended to us by a friend.

The hotel is conveniently located and is very near to the taxi stand.
hotel interior is nicely decorated and in line with the local culture.
the booking was made through cleartrip and hassle free. by mistake we were allotted a small room but within an hour they shifted us to the designated room. a spacious neatly maintained room in3 floor.
room service was good but the buffet BF sucks.
we hired a local taxi (sumo) for the entire stay and drop to Mirik.
the driver Mr.kundan (09641672772)was very well behaved and a good guide. he was never in a hurry. book him directly not thru hotel.(any other taxi as per choice but never thru hotel)
enjoy

Hotel Seven Seventeen in Darjeerling was even better than I had hoped. This hotel was wonderful! I chose it and booked it in Australia through bookings.com based on the bright Tibetan décor, the reviews I had read, the price and the things I had heard about the restaurant. Check in was hassle free. The staff were polite although a little quiet (shy I think). Our rooms (I had booked two) were fantastic. They were bright, clean and both had windows with views (one over the street which was really interesting and the other towards a Buddhist temple). The hot water was only available in the morning (7 till 8) and in the evening (7 till 9) but this was not a problem. The bedding was really warm, which was needed as it got pretty chilly. The best thing though I think was the amazing restaurant! It was incredible to look at…the painted walls and ceilings were so atmospheric and the food was divine! If you go there (and you should) then order the chicken Momo’s (a Tibetan type of dumpling or gyoza). So delicious and made fresh when you order, so they don’t sit around. A little bit of a wait but well worth it. We also had the vegie Momo’s (yum!), and the fried chicken momo’s (also yum!). We had dinner there twice out of 4 nights and the food was clearly the best we had. Also give the Tibetan soup/noodle dish a go…excellent! Breakfast was yummy and plentiful. The Indian Puri Bahzi was a winner with my family and the banana pancakes. The thing that topped off our visit was our invitation by the owners to share tea with them in their residence. It was just so nice chatting to them and we were even given some homemade biscuits to take with us to eat on the train! This is a clean, family friendly and atmospheric place to stay, that is in the heart of Darjeerling and walking distance to everything we needed. I fully recommend.

I stayed here for three nights on a work trip. The room was okay, not brilliant but clean and comfortable (especially the bed). I struggled with the hot water which was intermittent and not very hot but I would stay there again just for the food which was exceptional! The breakfast was to die for (especially the porridge with honey) and the owners kindly arranged for me to have an early breakfast on the morning of my departure. I chose the cheapest room and if I return then I will choose a better room higher up the building so I get the wonder views of the mountains in the morning.

Room Tip: Higher up the building is better for views but these are the more expensive luxury rooms and suites...

We stayed 8 nights in this hotel in the 4th floor. The room was beautiful with a view to Kanchenjunga mountain. It was clean and tidy. We always had hot water when we needed. The hotel is situated in the center of the city and the fact that cars have difficulties to go on the hotel street makes it more a quiet place. The restaurant in the hotel serves very good food and something extraordinary was the treatment from the two Tibetian sisters which own the place. They always made sure we do not miss anything and several times invited us and other guests for tea and cake.

Room Tip: In Darjeeling most hotels do not have elevators. Choosing higher floors might have better chances fo...
