This centrally located hotel is one of the few places in Pelling that offer a dorm. I managed to get a dorm bed for Rs 180 during the off season. The place is ideal for budget travelers and backpackers. Id rate this place better than Hotel Kabur as they dont have a dorm The staff is very helpful and kind.... More

Hotel Garuda, is located in upper pelling and is quite centrally located. It's an old establishment but a nice and cosy place. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. The rooms have different names which is a nice touch. choose a room with a view. It maybe a bit expensive but every peeny spent is worth it. The Kanchenjunga mountains... More

Visited Pelling on 21st May and stayed in deluxe room in Garuda. Room was spacious but there was spider Web. We requested staff to remove it and thankfully it was removed quickly. Food was very good. Owner was helpful. But there was house fly in restaurant.Hencee kids were not comfortable while having food.

We had the worst meal experience in Garuda ..We were kept waiting for over two hours on a rainy day with absolutely no forthcoming intent of being helpful. They refused to serve even 10% off their so called exhaustive menu card. Pls dont go there,if you are in a group of more than two,they cant manage it. Average food and... More

Booked one view room with veranda. Had a great view of the mountains next morning from inside the room. Running hot and cold water helps in winter season. Staffs are very helpful. Very clean and spacious. The idea of having dining table in each floor is very good. Overall nice experience.

Stayed at Garuda 4 two nights. Lovely location, just the hub of upper Pelling. Very hospitable owners. Food is good. Yadav gives you good room service. We stayed in room named PEMA. Can see kanchenjunga clearly from your bed. Overall very good.

The power was out in the morning and there were no other option to get hot... More
