“Decent Hotel to stay in with family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

we stayed at the hotel on 9th, 10th & 11th Nov 2013. You need to be sure of the hotel you have booked since there is another "THE Royal Residency" about 3 Km from this one. Also the entrance is such that without a local person to help, you may easily miss it.
The staff is very good & helpful. Right from the Manager Mr Rahul to the entire staff would go the extra mile to ensure you are at ease.
The rooms & food is good so go ahead & book the MAP (Breakfast + Dinner) option unless you want to experiment around the city.
However if you are visiting it in the colder months be prepared to shell out extra for the heater (seemingly true for every hotel in Sikkim & North Bengal)

Hotel rates in Gangtok are based on what view they offer you of Kanchandganga. From that point of view....yes if you ask and get a room with a view...you can see it form your bed while you sip the tea you make from the cattle provided.
The second plus is, from the basement of hotel you are just 2 minutes or around 50-60 stairs from MG Road.
As you will read in all reviews staff is very responsive. Breakfast is 'Indian', I wish they keep things like Museli and otehr cereals. Whatever we eat in breafast was well made. The bonus was one of the staff, young boy who sings amazingly well. I hope they ask him to sing for the guests in the evening!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with a clear view of the Kanchandganga!

We stayed in this hotel during our trip to Gangtok.There are 2 branches of this hotel , one in the town and one at the upper Kazi Road. We stayed in the latter. Rooms are spacious and have a balcony with good view.The main advantage with this hotel in that in certain rooms you can have a beautiful view of Mountain Kanchenjunga. Stay wise, the hotel is comfortable and the food served is good . They serve complimentary breakfast which was good on both the days we stayed there. On day 1 they served hot idlis with sambhar and chutney, fruits,upma with choice of coffee or tea. On day 2 they served poha and Maggi noodles +the other items as on day 1.For lunch or dinner you have to order atleast one hour in advance otherwise you have to wait for long. The staff is courteous and the place is well maintained. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms on north side for early morning view of Mountain Kanchenjunga.

Very Nice Staff , Always ready to co operate.

Very Nice Food , (Give me feeling like I am in Home)

After coming from sight seen my 4 year old daughter told me GHAR CHALO , she feels like home.

Mr Jayant personally look after all things.

Hotel Manager Mr Rahul is too much helpfull.

In short if you want to stay somewhere , its like bird nest with mother bird.

Room Tip: Royal Room is too good

I stayed in the hotel with my family. Jayantji's behaviour is very nice he gave us proper care and the atmosphere is very friendly. The view from the rooms were awesome and their was no noise pollution as you require peace on your trip.We enjoyed watching Kanchenjunga hill & its different views from our room.Even we enjoyed shopping as the market was nearby from the hotel.The food was nice and we did not faced any food problems which we worried about. The service was great.I would suggest all if you are planning a trip do stay in only this hotel....
