We visited Snow Lion Homestay in June, 2014 as a couple on our trip to Gangtok & Pelling. Its location is superb, just right in the middle of city center from where you can have a 5 minutes walk to busy Gandhi road. Run by a very caring Tibetian family, they don't have a restaurant inside but when you are... More

Snow lion was a great, affordable stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were a bit damp during monsoon season but otherwise fine. They did not have much information on the city, but the location is perfect for getting around Darjeeling! Nice stay.

Pros :Good ambience ,courteous staff, Clean room and toilets Cons: No restaurant, No signboard hence difficult to identify property at night ,very limited parking hence if you book a cab from outside it might wait quite far from the hotel . Over all good experience but no restaurant is really a heartbreak .

It has been a delightful stay at the hotel. The people and the staff were excellent with the homely touch, food was acceptable as one can expect away from home. Cleanliness was outstanding, perhaps the grooming of rooms was unbelievable, family too warm to make one feel like being at home. The owner is very enterprising and passionate about his... More

Although this place is called a homestay, its just like any other hotel you would go. I visited Darjeeling in May 2014. This is run by a Tibetan family and I must say the decor and cleanliness if first rate. We, were not lucky to get a room with a view, but nevertheless we enjoyed every bit here. So, if... More

Very nice stay. It is not a hotel, but a home stay. A Tibetan family runs it. It is very clean. Towels and bed sheets are also very clean. No restaurant in the home stay. Family serves breakfast on the 3rd floor from 8-10 AM. In case you need food for lunch/dinner they bring it from outside. You can get... More

The positives about staying at the Snow Lion are its location - easy walking distance to the main street and shops etc, the possibility of a view of the mountains from the rooftop and the quirky breakfast room (unfortunately only accessible for breakfast). The available communal room had no windows and wasn't very inviting. The owner was helpful when we... More

Nice, tastefully done interiors at a convenient location. Staff is courteous and polite. The hotel being run by a family, you will feel you are their valued guest. However service response time needs to improve.
