The hotel is located on the MG Marg and has a wonderful location. The staff is by and large very helpful. The rooms are small - OK for 2 people but feels a bit cramped with the luggage. The bathroom is also very small - However the fittings are of great quality. However, no toiletries are provided except for a... More

The location at the fabulous MG road makes the hotel special. Basic but clean rooms. Courteous hard working staff who in absence of an elevator would keep climbing the stairs up and down for the guests. The menu was rather clichéd and the food OK. The main roof leaked in rains but the management was prompt in fixing it. The... More

Average hotel with above average service. The best part is that it's right on the MG Road & you can't complain. Can be recommended to all. But don't expect great food and actually no need to have food there as lots of eateries are available nearby.

We did our bookings through the Make My Trip website for the Hotel which was not at all appreciated by the Hotel Manager, he indicated quite a few times that he himself could have provided a little discount if we would book through him.. But the reservations were confirmed and there would be cancellation fees, so we went ahead with... More

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.
