My wife and I stayed one night in the new wing on the second floor. Amazing room with very nice indoor and outdoor living areas. Very bright due to lots of openable windows (no air conditioning but a fan), and wonderful views. Our friends who stayed in the original building had very dark, gloomy rooms with no TVs. Our room...

Stayed at this during my diwali vacation in Oct 2014. Good things: Beautiful property, bit old but Clean, helpful staff, location is also just 10 mins walk from main market. Bad: Food is extremely costly and simply can't afford their meal plans. Will need to take food from outside. As market is just 10 mins walk, we always has all... More

Evidently there is a better place to stay in Kalimpong but we did not go over to check it out. The Himalayan has an excellent central building but the annex rooms are substandard. The sheets did not stretch under the mattress so that once you got into bed they immediately became a tangled mess. The wifi kinda worked but often... More

Stayed for a few days at the Himalayan whilst visiting Dr Graham's Homes. Can't fault the hotel - had a nice room in the annex with balcony overlooking the Himalayas and everything I needed. Hot water, good food, charming staff who couldn't do enough to help, walking distance to the main centre and yet peaceful in its own gardens. I... More

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
