The property is a lesson in space planning. The common areas are small and yet so beautifully designed that the effect is very cozy. I was specially impressed with the small atrium created and the restaurant has been designed. It is amazing how much has been fitted into such little space. The bathrooms space is also small but again the... More

When we went to Gangtok, we wanted to stay as close to it's center but due to non-availability of rooms, we got to stay in this hotel for only two nights. I would say that this is the best hotel in the M.G.Marg area as it's sophisticate exterior catches your fancy at the first look. you step into a tiny... More

The rooms are quite cozy with a large bed and a separate seating area , but the bathroom is quite compact and snug . The staff are so friendly and efficient.The manager is very prompt in fulfilling your travel requests and very supportive . The location is its main plus point as its bang on M G Mall Road ....

A perfect location on the main MG Marg in Gangtok, this hotel is a favourite for most of the travellers, fairly affordable, the staff is active and helpful; the rooms are cute and corridors resemble some cottage (which to my liking is good).

It seems, they want to close the hotel soon, as they show no interest in running business. Worst reception area. I booked suite room and they were allocating regular room. This hotel has the worst bedding. Didnt sleep for a moment the whole night. So decided to shift to new hotel next day. Dont waste u r money here.

Descent hotel in between the market. Great location. You can enjoy evening strolling in the market. Not a luxury hotel it's a mid budget hotel. Good food and good hospitality. They arranged our trip to Yumthang and Gurudongmar lake. It was superb.

We stayed at Oriental in June 2009. The location was good, right on the MG road which is a good place for evening stroll and to eat out. We stayed for a couple of days only on our way to Lachun, Lachen & Gurudongmar.

The hotel is situated in the middle of new market, which is the new extension of M.G. Marg, so you can't deny the advantages of staying here while visiting Gangtok. The rooms are cosy and well maintained but they may appear small if it's a family of 3. The biggest disadvantage of the hotel is its stairs. The rooms on... More

We stayed for a night in the hotel and found it to be very good. Hotel is in mid of the market and car parking is not an issue. Besides, food served in the hotel was too good. One can get a good deal, if hotel is contacted directly, especially during off season.
