We stayed there for 2 nights during our trekking tour in Sikkim. The staff was very friendly and hostability. We welcomed every day with warm tea and fresh and delicious dinner. The hotel is very old so to people how likes everything from western civilisation it might be not the right choose.... i would book again.

Stayed in the Tenzig Norhay suite which had an incredible view of the Himalayas. Food was good, served in a dining room with a big fireplace. Fires lit in the evening which was appreciated because it was unseasonably cold. Unfortunately, not so at breakfast which meant even the staff served in their jackets! Some broken glass high in the roof... More

Our original booking was for Dekeling but thanks to a goof up by Goibibo we ended up spending three nights (28th to 30th September) in this hotel. This is a heritage property located on Gandhi Road, a few hundred meters uphill from Keventers and an easy walk down to the mall. One of the biggest advantages that this hotel has... More

First off I love Darjeeling... my favorite city in India... also known as the walking city. The hotel was quaint... wifi downstairs. The management was very helpful to both me and my daughter. An oddity to me was the shower did not have a stall but emptied on the floor. I found that all the hotels in Darjeeling are like... More

We were booked to spend 3 nights at this hotel but checked out after a black rat was in the dining room and our bedroom. Mould all over the walls, dreadful damp smell, stained sheets, broken bed, no hot water and bedroom carpet eaten by rats. It was the most shocking hotel and we checked out as soon as we... More
