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

We were on a Trip to Gangtok, Lachung and Darjeeling. We stayed in The Oriental twice. First time, we had top floor room (6th floor) which was superb. The view was awesome. Only drawback, there is no lift here. You have to use stairs. Second time, we had fourth floor room. It was nice and clean. This hotel is right... More

We were particular about staying on MG Road, and thus picked this hotel. In terms of accessibility to taxi stands, restaurants and the main drag of Gangtok, this hotel is superb. We picked the 5th floor, having heard about the nice views from here. However, in summer, the haze prevents a glimpse of any mountain, so this wasn't possible; I... More

Looks like a good heritage property but room service very poor. Person in 3-5th floor will have a horrible experience. No water supply from 8 pm to 8 am. No manager on duty at night. New room attendant everyday. Buffett is terrible, you have to wait for food to arrive. You have to take chappati witout sabji. Only good thing... More

The food was good but the service a bit slow.Interiors are exquisite and very neatly maintained. Hospitality of hotel staff and housekeeping staff was... More

Found the hotel truely worth the price. It located at a perfect place - right on the MG Marg. The rooms are a little smaller but are well maintained. Interiors of the hotel have been done well too (given the limited space). First floor lobby is excellent place to spend time in. Our room was on the first floor with... More
