The location of the hotel is probably the most convenient for any traveller from mobility, view, shopping, outside restaurants and of course the Mall. I have travelled with my spouse and an infant for whom I had placed series of demands to the authorities right from speed of the pick up and drop car to warm water, special food (for... More

I stayed here with my family on a trip to Darjeeling. The hotel location is pretty good and it is near some really good restaurants. The rooms themselves are a bit tacky by western standards and the bathrooms could use some improvement. Staff is very pleasant but as to be expected in this part there is some lacking English which... More

Visited Darjeeling with my family ( of 3) in Mar 2014 and I had picked Dekeling cos of the great reviews and to sum it up quickly, its just as good as I read it would be! The location is kind of perfect as its smack in the middle of the main road overlooking Keventers. The hotel is actually on... More

The hotel had a good location and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I really liked the "lounge" where we had breakfast and that they kept warm in the evenings which can get a bit chilly in the mountains.

We picked Dekeling because of the excellent reports in Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. It is a beautiful hotel, perfectly sited, having mountain, valley, and Darjeeling city views. Shops, restaurants ( Dekeling, Glenary's, The Park, Keventer's, Lunar, and many others), are right there, as are pharmacies and transport agencies. The main road and, importantly, Darjeeling railway station on Hill... More

I went here with not a little trepidation after reading reviews whingeing about all the steps etc.I am hopeless on hills and steps so was dreading it,but it wasn't bad and you can stop if you need to...although by now,the lovely manager,Norbu and his delightful wife,will have finished the new stairs which will make access so much easier. The hotel... More

Found this hotel to be too pricey for what it offered. The place is an absolute maze to get around inside. One of the few hotels on our trip that didn't offer some sort of free breakfast. Our room was very large and pretty comfortable. Bathroom was older and nothing special. Common areas are pretty cool, sadly the great views... More

I am a very avid traveler and this is hands down the most homey hotel I have ever stayed in. The common room in an absolutely lovely place to sit by the fire (with a pot of delicious Darjeeling tea) and talk with other travellers. The staff is out of this world friendly and accommodating and the rooms were cozy... More

I stayed in this hotel with my wife for three nights - 4 to 7 April 2014. We were coming from Gangtok after spending 3 nights in The Nettle & Fern hotel. We were highly disappointed after seeing the congested and dirty roads in Darjeeling. The hotel was easy to reach, right on road at the start of market near... More
