During my summer break 2009 I we planned a trip to northeastern India.
I would like to write a review for the travelers, who wish to travel to Darjeeling,
And stay in the hotel named Shangri –la regency.
Don’t go with the name ‘Shangri la’, as it not the 7star hotel. It is a boutique hotel in midst of the queen of the hills.
The rooms are very nice, giving you views of the valley, but if you can afford and wish to get a attic room which is at the top of the 5th floor you can, see the magnificent views of kunchenjenga which you can see only from these rooms.
Note- there is no lift!!!
We stayed in the attic room, which was cozy and nice. But the main problems of these rooms were the bathrooms. The shower hardly worked and was less effective.
The hotels in Darjeeling state not to waste water by using a bucket bath, and rather use shower, but ladies and gentlemen you cannot use a shower if the water supply is poor, I mean the water coming was very less.
Also the other thing I dint like about this hotel was the service. The breakfast was horrible! But the dinner was good. We had to eat our breakfast outside the hotel on our last day.
Besides all of this everything was nice and we enjoyed our trip to Darjeeling.
