Location of the Hotel is the best reason why should u choose this hotel. Breakfast is also good. Dont. Rooms are below average. Service is not good. Gangtok place is like heaven on earth.Must visit place for couples.Hotel is also okkk.Staffs are good,but service is not good.You have to call them for every common service required.

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

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
