We stayed here for a few days - it was very clean with nice views - but we were on the top floor and during the day people were running over the roof which was quite annoying. Got some incorrect information about the visa, and they seemed to be a bit disorganised. Breakfast was nice and the lounge area was... More

The Dekeling was great. We stayed at a few places in Darjeeling and this one was the best value for what you get. The free wifi works in most places (except our room on the top floor, of course lol). The rooms were clean and HUGE! The only weird thing was the shower, the head was a little low because... More

This is a lovely hotel situated right in the centre of town a short three minute walk to the main chowk. When you arrive, there are quite a few stairs to climb before you get to reception so make sure you steel yourself for that! The hotel itself is very quaint, the reception looks a little tired but the communal... More

I am a bit late in writing this review. Visited Darjeeling in Nov 2014 and stayed at Dekeling for 3 N and had a wonderful experience. I was travelling with my kid and they were so accommodating with all our requests.. from cooking meals for him to late night requests for heating the milk. They did it all with a... More

If you are fit to climb 70 stairs, this is best place to stay in Darjeeling. Awesome view of Kanchanjungha and very good hospitality. Very good location. They have proper heating panel installed in rooms. Nice sitting place at the top.

I have been to Darjeeling quite a few times but this time we decided to stay in Dekeling. Location is just awesome bang opposite to Keventer's. On a clear day the view of the mountains is great. The hotel itself is very clean and the super deluxe rooms are big and with a wooden finish and looks great. The only... More

This was my second time staying at Dekeling, and it will not be my last. Everything about the place, from the friendly staff to the cute resident dog, makes you feel completely comfortable and at home. The decor is great, love the carpeting in the rooms and the huge windows. Unfortunately it was very cloudy during our stay, but on... More

On my 3 week trip to India, I have stayed at 8 hotels all the way from this hotel to big 5-star hotels like Leela. I would rate the experience of this hotel in the top 3...the other two are 4.5 and 5 star hotels. First, this hotel is in the heart of the touristy Darjeeling. You step out of... More

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.
