“Perfect stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Based on the reviews in Tripadvisor I chose this property and after staying there I must say that its a perfect home stay away from home. I stayed here from 24th May 2014 for 3 Nights along with wife, daughter, father, mother, sister and niece. Mintokling Guest house is very near to Flower Exhibition Centre and 15 mins walking distance form MG Marg and is surrounded by garden.
Pema Mam being an excellent host we never had any problem during our stay period. Since it was a peak season there was a shortage of big car, but she anyhow managed a good Innova on our journey to Darjeeling.
Rooms - We were given 2 rooms (302 and 303) and both of them were spacious with excellent view and has TV with good number of channels.
Bathroom - The bathroom was clean and had geysers. We never had water shortage problem.
Dinning - 20 people can site together in the dinning. The food was exceptionally good and one can order customized food also. Since my father is 72 yrs old it was very helpful for us as we preferred home style, non spicy food.
Room Service - Room service is very responsive and exceptional.
Overall it was an excellent stay and I would definitely come again.

Room Tip: Room 302 and 303

The Mintokling is a big guesthouse on a hill (in 15 minutes walking distance) above the center of Gangtok. The room was large and clean. The bathroom nicely in order. Around the hotel there was a nice small garden overlooking the town. The restaurant was o.k., the service very friendly. The meals did not satisfy me, but maybe that is only my personal taste. I would prefer the neighboring hotel Pandim in Gangtok.

I had chosen Mintokling based on other travellers reviews on trip advisor and holidayiq. Many thanks to all of them because of whom I was able to spend 4 comfortable days in Gangtok.
Mintokling has a pleasant homely ambience.The solitude of the place really touched me.
Pema and Tenzing are very gracious and humble hosts and they go out of their way to make the stay comfortable and hassle free.
I stayed with my wife, 2 kids( 6 and 2) and my mother-in-law and we all would like to come back again.
Rooms- We had booked 2 rooms and we got 304 and 305 with excellent views. Rooms are very spacious and airy.Unfortunately the weather played spoil sport on all days with afternoon and evening rain. No views of Kanchenjunga but the overall view from both rooms(especially 304) is excellent. If you are an avid bird watcher then early morning and evening will be a treat sitting at the window. Bathrooms have storage type water heater and hot water is always available. We did not face any water shortage. For the couch sloths TV has sufficient channels.

Cleanliness and Hygiene- Housekeeping is top notch. Due to the wooden floors and panelling there is no lingering odour. Bathrooms are clean

Service- Excellent. Room service is very responsive.

Food- The food from the kitchen is akin to home. My MIL became a fan of the dal laced with a hint of butter. They also do well on the Sikkimese dishes which need an advance notice. Do try the Soucha and sikkemese pancakes which is quite filling as a combo.

Sightseeing- We did not want to be saddled with seeing 7 or 10 points rushed through. So we had planned to have a vehicle to ourselves for the day and see all the points at leisure. We requested Pema to arrange for a taxi and she was prompt in booking one. It was a Wagon R owned and driven by a 67 year old ex-army gentleman Mr.Thapa. He was jovial and patient guy and took us to all points we had listed for sight seeing.

MG road is a 10-15 min trip down the slopes and stairs.Climbing back will give you a hearty appetite.
For water bottles and snacks, head down the road beside Keepsa residency and there are many shops.
For any requirement Pema usually has a solution. So do ask her.
I am surely going to be back at Mintokling

Room Tip: Both 304 and 305 are spacious rooms.

The hosts at Mintokling, the location and the simple decor make this place The Place to stay in Gangtok.
We had a very comfortable stay at this reasonably priced place where you get very good home like food and lots of warmth. The father of the host being a Doctor really helped us in case of emergency.
They also arranged for a trusted travel agency to take us to North Sikkim. So it became an ideal launch pad for a fantastic holiday.
The rooms are very generous and simply but tastefully done. The overall feel is very relaxing.
A brisk long walk takes you to downtown Gangtok and you really don't need transport to do that if you take the short cuts cutting across regular roads. The flower show place is also a short walk from Mintokling.
We feel in love with this place and do will you.

My stay at Mintokling Guest House in Gangtok was very comfortable and pleasant. Its a great place for budget accommodation and the rooms are well appointed with good service.

It has a lovely garden to enjoy breakfast and meals. Also one can get clear views of Mt. Kanchenjunga.

Mintokling is a charming little family-run place that is a stone's throw away from the Flower Exhibition. The rooms are large and spacious with a sitting area and a closet. The bathrooms are clean and well maintained. The room service is very responsive and quality of food is good. The view from the rooms are stellar, weather permitting, and the garden in the back is a great place to relax. Most of the city is walking distance from the guest house given that you can manage the uphill hike back.

We had been here in November 2013and it was a wonderful experience. The spacious rooms, the clean wash rooms, the wonderful hosts who accommodated us twice. The second time was with just a call after we returned from Lachung at about 11pm. It was an unplanned return hence we didn't have a booking. We knew they were running full,yet we called. They were most happy to help..... It is sometimes this gesture which makes such places worth visiting. The view of kanchanjunga was mind blowing. Everyday we woke up to this sipping on chai right from the kitchen... Good food and service. Very close to MG marg/mall road, walkable infact . We indeed had a memorable Diwali too. We could pick some crackers from the mall road/mg marg and light them near the guest house with no restriction at all... I will someday return again to relive these memories and more :) .

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the view of the Kanchanjunga
