Great location, right at the Mall. Good restaurant. The only problem is that the cabs won't go near the hotel and you need to catch porters for your luggage - an issue if there are elderly in the group. Book in advance, one of the faves.

We stayed in the suite rooms on 1st floor in The Oriental as part of a family trip to Gangtok during March 2015. The hotel's location is simply superb. It is on MG Road and everything is nearby from shops to ATM to restaurants. At the same time it is also reachable by car although a stretch of MG Road... More

Great location, decent rooms and breakfast but bathrooms are cramped. Good place for families, right at the city centre and value for money. Originally we booked some other hotel but later shifted here due to location. And they offered good deal for 3n stay.

The only disadvantage with this hotel is that there is no lift or no parking is available. The reception is only a small counter but is... More
