Nice and clean, friendly staff. Good continental breakfast with porridge, omelette, juice, coffie and tea. Hot water in the showers☺ Central location. Easy to talk with other travelers since there are plenty of lounge areas to hang out in.

Room carpet was little dirty, location is very good we have selected view room my room was 101. Staff are really helpful, do not talk with night guard for any type of tour guide. Talk with staff only. Hotel owner is also very helpful and co-operative. I will stay again here.

The place sits atop the mall road of Darjeeling and is a fantastic stay and property for the price being offered. The restaurant a floor below is one of the best ones in the place and always full with lovely people. Ample parking in front of the hotel and great view from the valley facing rooms

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Dekeling Hotel for three nights and, based on our experiences, would highly recommend the guesthouse to other visitors. We opted for an attic room which, although being a steep climb up, provided us with stunning views of the surrounding town and mountains when the skies were clear. Although we feel that the hotel...

I recently stayed at this hotel for 2 days with family. I found the rooms cramped for space and furniture was overused and broken. Service was a little slow. Also, the reception itself is located on 4th floor (its quite a climb from the road). I am still giving it three stars for the bed as it was comfortable and... More

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
