Reviewed 28 May 2014

Hotel seven seventeen is very comfortable for us...room service is up to the mark...circumstances in the hotel is good...
the negative point is ...the hotel situated in the market...
the short route from hotel to mall is very narrow and tough...and there is no street lamp.

If you are yearning for a taste of the local flavor, want to get a close look at the tibetan culture & heritage and enjoy some really delicious tibetan food (momos, thukpa et al), you should look no further than seven seventeen.

We stayed here in Dec 2013 around new year's time. The stay was really pleasant. The rooms are nice n cosy. Very neat n clean. They do provide heaters to beat the winter chill. The location of the hotel is ideal, very near to the jeep/taxi stand. Also walking distance to the main market.

The most striking thing about the place is the decor and the interiors in the way it has been done up. Gives a nice feel about being in the midst of some tibetan wonderland.

The staff is courteous and responds to your every request promptly. The restaurant serves really good tibetan cuisine and we had our fill of it for the 2 day we stayed here.

They also have a in house tibetan souvenir shop next to the restaurant.

Only downside was the breakfast had a limited spread and the restaurant closes early by 10pm. After that you cant order anything from restaurant. That's understandable though as the town closes early overall & the staff has to return home.

All in all, it was a really pleasant experience and would surely repeat the place if i visit again. a truly value for money stay which we enjoyed thoroughly.

As charming as the town of Darjeeling, we truly enjoyed this 5 story hotel close to jeep taxi drop off, great shops, the main market and good restaurants. We found it very central and enjoyed the views over the town. We only walked a block or three with our bags from the jeep taxi rank that came from Sikkim.

At reception we were greeted by friendly, knowledgeable staff and walls painted in colourful Tibetan style. The staircase shows off traditional Tibetan artifacts and leads us to our room high up - decorated in wood and rich fabrics. We enjoyed tea one night with warm and friendly owner Yeshi, that was in her home on the top floor of the hotel. We also loved the reading room, beautifully furnished and just a perfect place to read and reflect on the day.

Coming and going we were always politely greeted be staff - most friendly we've experienced in India so far. The restaurant is good and we tasted both Indian food and traditional Tibetan fried Momo's (with some extra veggies prepared personally by owner Yeshi). What really blew our hair back was the impressive painted walls in the dining room and common areas...it felt like a proudly Tibetan museum showing off the rich culture - and as Yeshi explained, it took 20 years to build up, floor by floor - all done with much care. Be prepared for a little normal Darjeeling noise at night... the Darjeeling Dog Choir is unsurpassed for originality and they relish showing off their vocal stylings! Still - definitely our favourite hotel (and town) in India and don't see how it could be improved upon.

Room Tip: Head to the top! We enjoyed the views from the fifth floor

As per tripadvisor it is showing as a 3 star hotel but my booking is confirmed in new heritage seven seventeen which i dont think is a 3 star hotel. The rooms are not upto the mark. Room service is not well that much. Also the room is too small there is no towell in the bathroom. There is no view from the window as you can touch the building net to it from window by hand.

Overall I have visited there with some expectation which is not fulfilled with this hotel. I just one to mentione one thing that the food quality and variety was quite good with this hotel.

We had stayed at the hotel for two days in May 2014 and it was a pathetic experience. The prices charged were close to Rs.5000/- per night but the room wasnt worth it. The hotel looks very gloomy although the rooms have been decorated in Tibetan style as shown on the website. The bathrooms need renovation and hot water is available only between 7:30 am- 10 am and for couple of hours in evening. The approach road is always so congested that guests have to walk some 300-400 m to reach the hotel. So porters from hotel have to be requested to carry luggage. When we reached the room, some wet towels were hanging in the bathroom and had not been replaced. In the morning lots of traffic noise can also be heard from outside. Only saving grace is that the restaurant serves decent food at reasonable prices. However, guests are allowed to smoke in the restaurant which becomes uncomfortable for others as there is no proper ventilation in the restaurant.

Dear Sir,

Thank you so much for giving detailed information regarding your experiences staying here with us.

Sir I would like to inform you that when the management made this hotel at H D Lama Road the roads were broad neat and clean but after the Gorkhaland agitation every nook and street corner building has mushroomed and also no of vehicles has increased with little space for parking and space for pedestrian to walk,

What to do cant move the hotel and its surroundings . Darjeeling is crowded as any other city

Sir our hotel tariff starts from Rs:- 2,500 and not Rs:- 5,000/- as you have mentioned . you can check our website:- www.hotel717.com . Sir i know that we should be having smoking and none smoking zone and we did have for some time but repeated plea falls sometimes leads to brawl by the local youths which we avoid but we do have proper vents in restaurant which perhaps you might be aware off.

Extremely sorry for the inconveniences you had to face but what to do we will try to improve on the suggestions made by you .

Getting to this hotel will be a task in itself , because of narrow roads and all the parking etc, . Every corner you see tibetan art facts and they have good souvenir shop in the lobby . Hot water is only limited period of time and bathroom anglo indian commode is a bit of a disappointment . Feel rooms need lots and lots of maintenance needed. staff is helpful .
