Why does some one go to Darjeeling? Yes it is a hill station so there will be majority of tourist visiting this Queen of hill stations for enjoying the cold which is about 10 degrees lower than the planes. Then one has to spend the time as well. Then comes the requirement of a hotel which is very close to Mall and one can easily get in and get out from Mall. This outfit meets that requirement.Then comes the requirement of viewing Kanchanjungha from the room. Yes this hotel meets that requirement to T.
We stayed in room number 201 and could see Kanchanjungha from the bed on a clear day. So this hotel met above to criteria but for a price. The rent per day is 5000 bucks.
Mr.Sarcar GM of the hotel and Arijit Chatterjee at the reception met all our requirements with a smile.
A special word for Videsh who was serving us smilingly during our 3 days stay.
Yes in this hotel i felt as though i am at home because of the staff like Videsh and his ilk.
The food in the multi cuisine restaurant is quite tasty and fairly priced. We used to take breakfast and dinner in the hotel itself.
The room was getting cleaned every day with change of towel.
