I was a part of a group of 20 persons - both men and women - for a spiritual retreat from Chinmaya Mission - Kolkata - who had satyed in the hotel for three nights. Based on Trip Advisor's rating and some word of mouth recomendation also we decided to stay at this place and did our bookings accordingly from... More

The main building of the hotel is a 100 year old place with antiques and old paintings and photos. The dining area was large and the staff was excellent. As this was our last stop before we headed home after a 10 day trip, we were missing home food, we did not enjoy the food much. The rooms were nice... More

Kalimpong was the last leg of our trip and Himalyan Hotel was the perfect ending. I would recommend Old Block if you want to have a feel of Old times, wooden ceiling, beautiful sit out balcony area, beautiful lawns. The rooms are clean and the staff will always be there to ensure you have a pleasant stay. They have a... More

This is a very pretty old heritage building overlooking the hills with a wonderful garden which has nice sit-outs under an umbrella. The rooms are very cozy ( we stayed on the first floor) with a balcony with comfortable sitting arrangements where you can have endless cups of tea and look at the beautiful scenery. Food is very good and... More

One of the best holiday properties we have ever came across and certainly the best in Kalimpong. Quite close to the market area and main streets, yet enjoys a secluded spot, which is calm, quiet and beautiful. Just four double storied cottages built around the well kept lawn of the heritage bungalow owned by the fabled McDonald family. Lots of... More

Himalayan Hotel in Kalimpong is one of those rare gems that travel writers like me scour the world for. It's completely magical and just run down enough to allow your fantasies to run wild. In a state that could never be described as renovated, it's creaking with charm, charm, charm. We loved the old paintings on the walls, the gramophone... More

We selected this hotel based on its location and trip advisor review. Room and view from the room are very good. But looks like rooms are not properly maintained. The telephone in the room did not work. 3 bulbs were not working while we checked in. Bed cover was dirty. We had no clue that there is no menu card... More

My partner and I stayed at your hotel from 30 December 2013 to 1 January 2014. To be quite frank it still retains the old world charm - mostly hotels are either too commercial or lack the touch. Personally, we would have loved to have met with the owners since we have friends who have spoken highly of your property.... More

We were surprised to discover a british Hotel in that arera, where once Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, the first men on the Mt. Everest stayed. It has a warm and welcoming atmosphere.The rooms are well equipped and cute.
