We stayed at this hotel in February 2014. Honestly I don't think you can get a better located hotel in the whole of Gangtok. The main road on which it is located -M G Marg is beautiful with the flower baskets hanging from the lamp posts paved footpaths and immaculate cleanliness. The staff were helpful and smiling. The sightseeing around... More

I was on business trip and in non seasonal days, may be that made them to serve the customers in an improper way. The hotel architecture had a local feeling of the northeast region with wooden stairs and walls, dragon paintings, less height in floors. The bed was not so comfortable and washrooms were too small which made the activities... More

We reached Gangtok late in the evening after a pretty long but picturesque journey and checked in to this pretty boutique. The first thing that struck us the most about the hotel was the tastefully decorated interiors. Every corner lay a Sikkimese artefact, old pictures of the area and beautiful paintings. The location couldn't get better because it was right... More

Was In Gangtok this month for a pleasure trip. I wanted to stay right on the M G Marg (The Mall) but was suprised that there were just a couple of good hotels on the main M G Marg. Luckily I got a room in this hotel. We greatly enjoyed our visit to Gangtok and have decided to come back... More

The hotel is very close to the main market, so you can see a lot of hustle bustle around and walk to the market. It is neat and the food is good too. The hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. In fact they are honest too, we had got a booking done for two days here, with a gap... More

Excellent hotel of this class-beautiful property and kept extremely clean. Front desk staff is very friendly and welcoming. The extensive use of wood which is rare in this day and age really impressed me. Food was good. Location as I had read in the reviews before booking this place was the best in the town. The early morning view from... More

Never in my life had I stayed in such a filthy hotel. The rooms end even before they start. Small and cramped rooms. The toilet even smaller. The worst thing is that during our stay some problem arose with the plumbing system and the water turned murky and dirty. When we complained about this to the staffs they said they... More
