Very useful and great service, excellent rooms and awesome view. In addition, atmosphere is truly Tibetan, the host being extremely welcome. Location is excellent right in the middle of town. Will come back here for sure next time I go to Darjeeling.

The charming Norbu and his ever-smiling wife run a very smooth operation right in the centre of town. The rooms are a good size, most have a panel radiator, thick mattresses and duvets: you will not be cold here. There is a large sitting area with views and a wood-burning stove. They do a good breakfast too. You do have... More

We stayed at the Dekeling due to its reviews and location. The Dekeling is centrally located with an easy walk to all the sights to see within the city. ie; the zoo, observatory, train station and restaurants. The room we had was a "super deluxe" and it was at the top of the hotel. The bathroom was small but clean,... More

We tried different places in Darjeeling and I would say Dekeling was the best regarding value for money. The best about the hotel is definitely the warm and cozy common area with breathtaking views of Kanchenchunga if you are lucky. It seemed like there was no real management in place, reception was sometime occupied, sometimes not. Half of the hotel... More

The hotel is located at a beautiful location whether it is view of the Kanchenjunga or the market. I would recommend to book a deluxe room. The room has a wardrobe, wall attached room heater, two single sofa, small table and a king size bed. The hotel is located on the 4th floor and there is no lift. You'll have... More

My best stay ever in Darjeeling has been in Hotel Dekeling. It's run by a respected Tibetan family and their behavior is very simple and co-operating. The team of management and staffs are not greedy at all. During my hotel booking they had mentioned that I may have to pay extra for my child but did not charge it to... More

I arrived and was shown to a room with a lovely view of the Himalayas. I was offered tea. My main concern was that the room was soooo cold. I asked where the heater was ,it was a big panel behind the bed that was switched on for me. It took forever to warm up and I had to leave... More
