This is a good hotel situated in the heart of Darjeeling, just near to mall road opposite to Keventas. Only problem is, there are seventy steps to climb up to enter the hotel. The rooms were clean and big but the bathroom was small. The room service used to take lot of time to deliver the ordered items. There was... More

Nice and decent hotel. Has a very nice view of both Darjeeling City as well as mountains. The restaurant was good. Food was nice. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Overall nice experience. Walking down to the city was easy, but walking up was a very tedious job. If you are travelling with a car - then no problem.

It was lovely being back at the Dekeling Hotel which Mr and Mrs Dekevas always make so homely. Both Norbu and his wife always take time out to see you are well and enjoying your stay. This was our fourth visit in 12 years. I still rate it as the best budget stay in Darjeeling and the breakfasts are always... More

There is no food arranagament as such but for light chinese sort of item the hotel has a restaurant downstairs. If you need snacks and fast food then mall road is quite... More

This is a good hotel situated in the heart of Darjeeling, just near to mall road. Only problem is, there are seventy steps to climb up to enter the hotel. So if there are accompanying senior citizens or those with heart problem , high blood pressure or joint ailments, the entry may be troublesome. Otherwise the rooms are good. The... More

Honestly speaking this place is not worth getting five stars. I agree that the location of this hotel is very nice, just at the tip of the mall road, but you can forget service component altogether. First of all you will need to climb several stairs to reach the reception ( may be more to enter your room) then reception... More
