Tara Palace
Ranked #41 of 118 Hotels in Gangtok
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We three families stayed for 4 nights during July 2014. We really appreciate the fact we were all offered free upgrade on request. Room 101 was comparatively huge in comparison to 107 n 109 though all were of the same category.
Pros : Excellent location ... probably the best option to stay near MG Marg the heart of Gangtok.
The kitchen staff deserves appreciation in providing boiled Khicdri to the three kids in our group... even at 7 AM.
Cons : The bathroom gets flooded after shower .... something really wrong with the drainage.
Also d breakfast layout had North Indian, South Indian n English except d cuisine of the land .... no momo, no thukpa, no chowmein.

Definitely this is not a star property but still not a bad place by any means. The rooms are very good. Go for the superior rooms at higher floors. They have a majestic view of the mountains. The room and the bathroom is also very good. The food and breakfast is not too good. They need to improve on it. The breakfast spread is not at all good considering they are charging 6000-8000 per night. The travel desk is extremely cooperative and helpful. They will plan all your sightseeing and travel trips for you. The hotel is located at a 5minute walking distance from MG Marg which is a great plus point. To summarize, apart from the food it is a very nice hotel.

Room Tip: Go for the higher floor superior rooms

A huge statue of Lord Buddha looks striking at the entrance. The dining room location is good. Food is good but nothing great. 3 nights we stayed, no Momos on the menu :( Chicken gravies are tasty. The triple sharing suite was spacious. Toilet was clean. Some malfunctioning in TV, toilet flush was attended immediately to satisfaction. Service is very good. If you call, someone reports within the next 3 minutes. The hotel is very near to MG road, just 5 minutes, but the road to MG road from hotel is narrow and stinking. In General, Gangtok, actually a charming place has been spoilt by too much commercializations, too many tourists, too many hotels, too much traffic. Some restrictions must be laid for population and no of tourists. I realized how important the weather is for success of tourism. We went in June 1st week and it was hot hot hot. To end this review on a positive note, Changu lake and the entire route / region is beautiful. The hotel organized the sightseeing for us quite efficiently.

Room Tip: Rooms Facing the hills. There is no fitness centre or swimming pool. The rating is stuck, please ign...

I stayed with family for four nights. I found the room spacious and having all the amenities. Bathroom fittings are classy. Maintenance is good. Rooms are clean.Lift works only sometimes and so be prepared to walk up. Food could be Ok for non vegetarians but for a south Indian vegetarian, things could be challenging. ( Where is Dahi bath?)

Room Tip: Take rooms on the back side. We took the one in the front side and were having problems at 3 AM with...

Stayed there from 22nd to 25th march 2014.hotel has very good interior, well spacious room a balcony with mountain view yet walkable distance from M.G.Marg the main mall road.But bathroom was terrible ,a very narrow space for bathing with a only 4 hole drain that too front side so when you shower soap scum stick to feet.
Regarding travel desk ,worst ever experience.As per telephonic conversation with mr. Partha Kundu I had mailed my ID's and photographs for Nathu la pass.At the time of checking in I asked for the Travel desk ,The fresher lady at the reception told that he will come tomorrow morning at 7 am. I told her about my talks with mr. kundu and to complete the formalities regarding my next day travel to Psongmo lake and nathu la.she said O.K. We had only that day to get the pass for nathu la as it remain closed on Monday and Tuesday.
Till next morning there was no call from either reception or Travel desk ,when I inquired at 7.00am recepionist told that he will come at 8.00am and at 8.00 she said at 9.00am. Funniest answer I got at 9.00 that sir today is sunday travel desk personnel will not come today.We walked out of hotel at 10.00 am without any plan for the day .haaasssh.
Management should give reasonable concern over it.
Regarding food mind you always take hotel with MAP plan otherwise it may be very difficult to swallow a ordinary chapati for rs 60/-.

Room Tip: Choose superior family room with mountain view.

A good hotel in almost every respect, Good room, food, service and facilities.There are also a room heater and coffee/tea maker.
Wi-fi is there, but only at lobby, unavailable at rooms. That is a very bad minus for us.

Room Tip: Select rooms away from road.
