I stayed at hotel modern residency lachung for a period of 2 nights (29/04-01/05) with my wife and 10 yr old son for our north sikkim tour....the first thing that stuck me was the efficient, prompt and enthusiastic service provided by the group of nepali boys who were forever runnung around catering to the demands of the various guests...
Modern residency is a small but a tastefully made hotel reminiscent of tibetan architecture...the ground,1st and 2nd floors have small but self-sufficient rooms; the ones in front have a view of the mountains...they even have a museum floor on top with tibetan curios, dresses and other items on display....the interiors and the exterior both offer a glimpse of tibetan culture and heritage...
As mentioned earlier, it is a small hotel in a small village( lachung is actually a valley containing a group of villages...modern res is in one of them...singring, i think) so don't except any luxuries...lights can go out any time...be forewarned... this hotel has the basic comforts like t.v, telephone, heater(on rent in off-season), nice cozy bed with real thick quilts which keep u warm and cozy but nothing beyond that....the views from the hotel however is fantastic with the surrounding mountain ranges and the lachung valley...
Special mention must be made about the extra special care taken by the staff of nepali boys esp simon, milan ,rubal etc who enthusiatically cater to your every demands....the food though simple is quite tasty ...the manager norden bhutia is also a nice guy who takes good care of his guests....so all in all the shortcomings of this hotel like lack of luxury, no power back-up, lack of heaters in summer etc are well compensated by the prompt and efficient service provided by the staff....also the lounge and reception area provide a nice place for conversations...the fireplace provided on each of the floors is v.thoughtful indeed
To summarize , all in all a good comfortable stay in a nice cozy hotel....BUT do not expect luxuries....

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the mountains preferably on the higher levels....401-03 or 501-03 would be good enough

Clean room, clean toilets, great service, good food, friendly staff particularly the one who provided hot water. Hotel is built in Tibetian style monastry which makes it very attractive.

Room Tip: Best place to stay in Lachung.

This is the Hotel for the budget travellers. At Lachung this is a very moderate and affordable hotel. Good neat and clean with very basics for a traveller to this part of the world. But i need to mention the quality of the staffs. They are excellent. Always on their toes to serve the guest. The food is also tasty and with no frills. Such food is always good when you travel hectic and moreover tourist come here to soak the beauty and not to eat....

Room Tip: Nothing inside a room. Heaven is outside...

We stayed at Modern Residency Lachung during our trip to Gangtok.It has 15 to 20 rooms which are very basic but neat and clean.The hotel is managed by nepali boys who are always running around to serve guests.The hotel looks like a monestry which makes it stand out.The food is good and home like.It is a good view and can see snow clad mountains. 2 nights stay is recoomended.
