The Location: Although the hotel is located in the supposed center of Darjeeling, it doesn't make for a very convenient stay. The hotel is situated on the 3rd floor of a building which hosts another hotel/restaurant. So it's basically shared space! There is a taxi stand right below the hotel and they make God-Awful noise throughout the day! KanchanDzonga is... More

Mach (Fish), Mishti (Fish) and Mall (The Market Strip on the Mountains) are possibly few of the closest things for a Bengali.. and am no exception... The mystery of the Himalayas to the heritage of the British winter capital, from the road side eateries to the beef steak at Glenery's you get it all... If it's for the kids to... More

When I used to do a lot of budget travel, that was IMO the best budget-to-midrange hotel I had been to. A few years back, a room with large windows overlooking the otherwordly Kangchenjunga peaks cost just about 20 USD and a room with a panoramic view of the mountains and the city-slopes cost around 30 USD. The hotel is... More

The first rooms we got, with the mountain view did not have heaters. They changed us then to rooms with heaters which sucked. The room insulation is so bad that even with the heaters on full blast, I had to sleep with clothes and five blankets. Five blankets. And I am someone who is used to the cold, living in... More

thought the hotel is too small and does.not have any amenities appart from accommodation in the main street.. the big plus point of the hotel is their personalised service...the hotel staff go.out of their way to make your stay comfortable... and the only negative is that you need.climb atleast 3floors to reach the reception..so aged people who has breathing problem...

I visited Hotel Dekeling on June 2016. Rooms are really nice and cozy. Its in the prime location just opposite to Keventers. I forgot one woolen garment at the hotel which was very special to me. On returning to Kolkata I contacted the hotel about the lost garment with very little hope and they contacted me after two days saying... More

We booked hotel after seeing review on TripAdvisor, but this time it didn't meet the our expectation. Hotel is very average.. at very high.. you have to climb up with tiny wooden stairs.. which is really difficult for old people... Hotel rooms r not clean.. and having totally old word robe/furniture.. which looks very ugly. Only good thing is ..... More
