The place feels like coming home to grandparents. Mrs Norbu treated us like her own children, which was comforting for a bunch of weary travellers. We arrived with some drama of a sick friend and the concern and car offered by the staff was genuine; they couldn't do enough for us. definitely one of the best places you could stay... More

Stayed 2 nights in September 2014. In general, it's clean and comfortable - like a two to three star hotel. You don't need air con in Darjeeling even in the summer; instead, they offered heater for the cold nights for a fee. This is more a family-run business with a somewhat casual attitude. For example, one young staff member struggled... More

We stayed in Dekeling Hotel in april this year, and I've been meaning to write a review for a while as I still have great memories of staying in this place. It's cosy, the location is good, the showers are nice and warm, the staff are super friendly, and the ginger lemon tea is great. We stayed for a total... More

Please don't go for this hotel. Beware of the charges their room rent looks bit on lower side but they are charging 10% service charge on the total amount and also a service tax of 7.42% again on the Room rent+service charge. Its like taking money from the other way round. For example. Room rent is Rs 4000 Service charge... More

First of all, Mr. M.S. Agarwal has not stayed with us in August., 2014 as he has claimed. Dekeling Hotel has no hidden charges. All our charges are transparent in our website: www.dekeling.com plus on all online travel portels. I am sorry, this gentleman is thoroughly confused and mistaken with the charges. All charges are as per government norms and... More

I had booked one Super Deluxe room for my family during June. I was a little nervous since I had booked the room via email and was sending my aged parents alone for the first time. I had told them to inform me about the rooms immedietly once they reach the hotel. The next day I got a call from... More

My husband and I spent three nights here and loved it. This is a lovely, quaint hotel built up a hill and has many levels with comfortable lounges on each level. The views of Darjeeling and the mountains are fantastic. The staff is wonderful as is the owner, warm and welcoming. They sincerely want to serve and their guests to... More

The location is excellent. The Frank Ross, Keventers, Gleneries restaurants are about a 60-second (or less) walk away. The rooms are well appointed and clean. The hospitality is warm and comes with smiles included (quite rare these days). I cannot fault this hotel. There is small restaurant on the ground floor called Devekas. I think theirs' is the Darjeeling's best... More

A lovely hotel in a great location. A welcome cup of tea on arrival was the perfect start to our trip (and most needed after a long, bumpy jeep ride!). Clean and spacious room? Very pleasant and helpful staff. Quick wifi connection in communal areas. Super fast laundry service too :) I highly recommend this hotel.
