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 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

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
