No breakfast provided at all. DO NOT BOOK CAR SERVICE from this hotel. They cheated 200/- Rs from me to book a car and let us... More

Location is great. Right on M.G.Road beside the Gandhi statue.Be prepared to climb stairs with your luggage. Approx 20 stairs upto the reception. Again you may have to climb stairs to reach yr room. This is common in Gangtok as most of the hotels do not have lifts.Rooms are not bad. Clean rooms with clean toilets. Hot water is available... More

We requested and got a road facing room on the second floor. The entire process of booking (over phone and emails) was smooth thanks to... More
