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

I stayed here for 3 nights. Actually i booked it for 4 nights, firstly for 3 nights and after that 1 more night. They clearly booked my stay for 3 nights, but due to some lacking in reservation update, they didn't booked it for 4th nights in their system and E-mailed me the confirmation. Because of this issue i spent... More

The best things about this hotel are its position, its light, airy, friendly lounge with views, and its proprietor and staff who are warm and helpful. The hotel is in the higher part of the town, and an easy walk to Chowrsta Square with good restaurants nearby. The room was comfortable and clean, and the bathroom was adequate by UK... More

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 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.
