The location is very good (bang opposite to Pelling Helipad) with clear view of K2 and helipad from its roof. We were not very lucky to see very good views as it rained cats n dogs the next morning. The owner Raja (9732258987) is extremely jovial and down to earth person. He tries his best to make you comfortable and feel like you are staying at your home. I would recommened this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Take rooms on higher floor. They are good spacious rooms. We stayed in room no 502. A good budget ho...

We reached Aurora around 8pm at night after a long journey from Gangtok and our expectations were quite high as this is rated as one of the best on TripAdvisor. This is located at a horrible location far away from everything and the approach to the hotel is really painful. On reaching we found out it's like small building wasn't too appealing. There was no electricity no genset for power back up just a few dim lights were switched on using an inverter. We were attended by a group of guys and taken to show a room with hand held torch lights.
The rooms were not even painted properly, furniture etc seemed old and bathrooms were not up to the mark as well, we were extremely disappointed to see. The hotel smelled so dirty. I was with family and they didn't want to stay at such a weird place. We were lucky that we didn't pay any advance. We ran away from that place and checked in at a different hotel called Sonamchen.
Just wondering how did they get so many good reviews.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel

Stayed at Hotel Aurora Sikkim from 28th September to 1st October 2013. Was fortunate to be allocated one of the best rooms with a splendid view #501.
The staff were friendly and provided the best with in their ability. The food choice in the restuarant is fairly limited as most of the items listed in the menu is not available.
The hotel is located in Upper Pelling near new Helipad. The location is deserted with no shops for even bare essentials.
One should ensure that one is allocated rooms in 4th and 5th floor as the rooms in lower floors are like dungeons.
The worst part is that the hotel DOES NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS & THE NEAREST ATM IS 10 MINUTES TREK DOWN HILL ( there is no mention of it in any of their website fliers).. A tough journey for the elderly.

Room Tip: Insist on rooms on 4th or 5th floor with view

This is a very nice hotel in upper peeling (adjacent to new helipad) offering excellent view of the mountains. As I traveled in September, they have offered 40% discount on the room tariff and provided the best view room (room no. 501). They have made the travel arrangement from NJP in reasonable rate. The services offered by the staffs were very good. We were always offered with hot and fresh cooked food as we ordered. We traveled with our 1.5 year old son. The kitchen staffs were always co-operative in cooking some food for him. The hotel made arrangement for our sight seeing also in reasonable rate. The morning in which Kanchenjunga was visible, the hotel staff came to our room to inform us. It was very nice of them. I will suggest everyone to stay here for your holidays.

Room Tip: Room no. 501 (on top floor) having best view

Oh! what a beautiful hotel is this. It is in upper Pelling (near new halipad). I booked for 3 nights, but now I am regretting for that. As all rooms were already booked unable to extend. First they showed me few rooms to choose, but the room they selected for me was nicely decorated and neat & clean. In the morning if the sky is clear the beautiful picks were visible through the window. Breakfast to dinner the food was never repeated. Bengali to continental all types of foods was served. Hospitality was so nice that insists me to stay here again.
Meet again.

Room Tip: "Corner suites are large and sunny"
