We visited Rishop for a couple of days and stayed at this hotel. Very good overall experience. This hotel is located at the best place to see the Mt. Kanchenjungha. It can be seen from the room also. The hotel has a very big nice lawn infront of the building. The hotel is surrounded by many trees with full of... More

Arguably one of the best located hotels of Rishop as far as view of Kanchenjunga is concerned.One can enjoy the sight of mountain ranges in the comfort of the hotel bedrooms or can take a leisurely walk up or down the hill.Lying on the bed and watching the stars twinkle in night is an experience you'll hardly forget.

Lovely location, wonderful weather (8500 ft above MSL), relaxing large rooms, good food and friendly staff, specially a guy called Achintya....very cordial manager, Mr Tuhin Mondal...and on top of it sweeping views of the mighty Himalayas make this a great place to spend a couple of days... No geyser, yes (as Rishyop still does not have adequate power supply), but... More

Hotel is not synonymous to location. There is absolutely no Management in this Hotel. People who visits Rishyap generally is peace loving but if you visit this hotel for peace it will be great blunder. Unfortunately we book this hotel for 3 nights. Each day hotel played DJ songs till 23:00 pm and refused to stop even after our several... More

The best possible location in Rishyap. All rooms have the best possible view staring from Nepal to Bhutan including kanchanjangha view just straight to your room view. You can stay here and visit all nearby locations like Lava & Lolegaon.

We recently visited this hotel and stayed in 2 ground floor rooms. Here are some of our experiences: 1. The hotel’s front porch has a great view of Kanchanjunga. You can also see the mesmerizing mountain range from your room. However here is the worst part. The front porch area is open to all. So if I open my rooms... More

Not only the most trusted and oldest property but also the best one with spacious rooms,choicable decor,good furnishings and off course mount kanchendzonga from every room especially from the top floor rooms. Food is simple yet tasty. Only problem is booking process is too tedious after the sonar bangla group transferred the property.

If you want a place in Rishyap from where you can see the Kanchendzonga sitting in your room, it has to be Sonar Bangla, Rishyap. I had stayed there and though I was not lucky to get a clear view of the Kanchendzonga on the first day, the rain at night cleared up the sky the following morning for a... More
