“Best Hotel for your budget and to stay with your family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

We stayed in Hotel Pomra for 4 nights. The rooms and toilets are very clean and neat. The staffs Arjun and Sandeep were very helpful. And the view of the mighty Mt.Kanjenjenga from our View Room is majestic. There is a walking spot called ridge road which is very near to the hotel where you can do your brisk morning walks and also you can have chance to meet local people doing morning workouts. And also there is a Palace and Royal Monestry which is also situated very close to the hotel. The owner of the hotel Mr.Pema is a very nice gentleman who gives lot of informations about gangtok and its culture. He is very helpful to arrange taxis for sightseeing and bargaining the fairs. He never let us to spend a single penny uselessly. He also let us to cook our south indian dishes :) Our Overall experience is excellent and the hotel is worth for your money and you can feel like a real traveller ;)

I was in Gangtok for over a month at Hotel Pomra. I was welcomed, looked after, given good advice and made so at home I didn't want to leave. Travelling as a single woman of 60 it was great to feel comfortable and to be able to ask advice which was freely given and sound. I made the mistake at first of not asking Pema, Hotel Pomra's owner, and consequently had difficulties. Any of the arrangements Pema made went well, were good value, the transport and the drivers were great so I strongly recommend asking and taking his advice. He also negotiates a good price for you, much better than any I tried to negotiate for myself and doesn't take any commission.

The rooms were clean and comfortable and there's hot showers and western-style loos. They have tv, all the space you need to store things and boiled water is always available from the kitchen. There's a range of prices so you can choose according to your budget. The views from the back bedrooms and the dining room are fantastic as the hotel is high up and looks over the town of Gangtok and towards the mountains and Darjeeling (on a clear day). It is quiet and I spent hours reading and writing on a small balcony between the rooms. There is free wi-fi, good home-cooked food whenever you want and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. There's a roof terrace which is available to use at any time and has the most incredible views.

The sleep quality was just compromised by barking dogs which you don't hear if you keep your windows shut and affect the whole of Gangtok (probably less at Hotel Pomra than most places). If, like me, you like your windows open, take ear plugs though I soon got used to them and they didn't disturb me.

And the rooms are really good though I know there are plans to make them even better, maybe just a bit cosier, though I liked them just as they are.

I can't recommend Hotel Pomra highly enough and will go back again as soon as I manage to get back to Sikkim.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, ask for one of the rooms with a view to the mountains.

Me & my wife stayed in Hotel Pomra for a week in Gangtok and to be honest enough we are totally satisfied with the hotel hygiene , ambiance , food and staff respond. Mr Pema , the owner , is a very helpful person, he arranged for all our needed vehicles and permits required for different trips to different sites. The staffs responds you prompt. The food is nice and reasonable. Few view rooms will give you a decent view of the beautiful gangtok city and the sight of mighty kanchenjunga in the morning time. The dining hall is neatly and soberly decorated and hygienic. The hotel is located uphill just a 5-7 mins walk from the MG road where you can sleep without any disturbance from traffic or anything.

The food of hotel pomra is specially liked by foreigners from UK , USA and Europe and to satisfy them , they usually maintain low spice in it..

Friends told us about the Pomra Hotel and after a long day jeep hopping our way to Gangtok, the welcome we received by the two male staff here was worth it. The hotel is up, away from the noise of the town and a gorgeous walk to and from the Main Street. The best things about this hotel are;quiet location, great free WIFI in your room, clean white sheets, spotless rooms, fresh WHITE towels, 24hour hot water, excellent food and, after traveling in India for 3 months, soft beds. The price for all this is nothing compared to other places we have stayed. A real gem.

After spending a good 2 months in Sikkim, and several weeks in the city of Gangtok, I have to say that Hotel Pomra is the absolutely best accommodation, hotel-wise, available. MANY things contribute to this. For one, it is in a beautiful location--high up near the top of the city, on a quiet street with an incredible view cascading downwards and of the mountains on a clear day. Just a walk away is the Ropeway, which can take you down to other neighborhoods, as well as MG Marg, the main shopping center of the city. Another factor is that Pomra offers delicious food, a calm & peaceful dining room with large windows overlooking the city, and wonderful rooms & bathrooms. Third, Pomra is a family-run hotel which gives it a communal and tight-knit atmosphere. It truly is an escape into paradise to stay at Pomra. It offers such a wonderful way to experience Gangtok. You'll never want to leave!

Room Tip: The best rooms are those with views, the others have windows that look out into alleyways. Such is t...
