Hotel Viceroy Darjeeling. I didn't previously appreciate that Darjeeling is "Base Camp 0" for the Himalayas--that knowledge should reset your expectations for this "luxury hotel". This is a funky town with a fascinating edginess to it that really defies words. Hotel Viceroy is a fascinating mix of Victorian Charm meets mountain reality. We stayed in two deluxe rooms on the...

A great property in the heart of Darjeeling , very close to chowrasta and the mall road. We had a super stay and got a vintage feeling as we stayed in one of the premium attic rooms, with the fireplace and the heater to keep ourselves warm and cosy. The interiors of the room were such that we could feel... More

A good resort in the heart of Darjeeling. Close to the Chowrasta and the Mall road. They offer very nice food. All rooms have very good view and but it doesn't seems like a 04 Star hotel. Overall compared to other hotel options available in darjeeling its a nice option and a bit expensive too. Staff is really warm and... More

Other than a great location on the edge of the main street and rooms with an outstanding view, this hotel has many issues that spoiled the stay. We had high expectations of this "4 star" hotel, none of which were met. It started with having to lug our bags up the outdoor staircase to the lobby, then from the lobby... More

It is an awesome hotel with a vintage feel. The rooms were outstanding especially the view. The food is out of the world, and the service is outstanding. Staff is really warm and helpful. All in all and amazing experience.

Spent 3 nights in November with my 73 year old mother at The Viceroy. Booked a Premier Attic Room as it looked lovely on the website and was next to the sun deck with views of Kunchanjungha. When we arrived we were faced with a steep staircase to the reception, which wasn't mentioned on the website. The staff were very... More

Darjeeling is a fascinating place with a great setting. This hotel is very well situated and has a great rooftop viewing platform. But we were cold and the requested heater had to work hard to keep up with the hot water bottle: question, why no heating? The food was goodies but the staff lacked aplomb and skill even for a...

This hotel is one of the few addresses in Darjeeling offering quality service and as they say "make you feel like a viceroy". Location is great too as it takes a 5 min walk to the mall area. Keventers, Gleneries,KFC ,Pizza Hut and the mall all within 5 mins walk , a great advantage. The lobby area is extremely well... More

pathetic washrooms with very unpractical w/c arrangement, almost unusable for many. The rooms are tiny and unworthily priced. paid 6500 for a room which was not even worth 2000. Also the approach to the hotel is bad. overall i would say it is a bad place to be in if you were on a holiday.
