Just returned from Darjeeling.It was a wonderful experience at Sonar Bangla.. First location- below the mall road on the backside of glenarys.Close to everything.However,for the the elderly people its a 7-10min steep uphill walk to the mall.

I can say the only best thing about this hotel is its location. 3 mins stiff walk to glenarys, 10 mins walk to Mall. We booked 3 rooms, 1 room was spacious but rest 2 rooms are damp, with no ventilation. The rooms and bathrooms are old fashioned, seriously need some renovation. Customer service is good enough, had received services... More

I was staying here for my business purposes. Room was big and clean. Room service was also good. The foods are OK. No free WiFi facility in this hotel. You can enjoy the Kanchanzangha from few room and balcony. It's very near from Mall.

It's a very below average hotel. It lacks on many points. Firstly the welcome at reception was not cordial. Then the cleanliness of hotel was poor. That peculiar smell in the hotel made us sick. Even the breakfast is very normal with poor options.

Sonar Bangla delivers exactly according to expectations - a budget stay, with the basics delivered as promised ... I. E. Clean rooms and linen, and blankets, hot water throughout the day, a great view (out of the Super deluxe room which I took) - looking out to the Darjeeling hillside and if you are lucky the Kanchenjunga as well.

I stayed on this hotel with my spouse on our Darjeeling tour August-2015. We booked the hotel from Amazing tours service. The best thing of this hotel was their room service. We got service whenever we asked for.
