Very kind and helpful staff, an extremely nice proprietor, cosy, nicely decorated, clean and big rooms (room B is almost like a suite, part-devided into sleeping and sitting room), very quiet (no cars allowed on either sides of the hotel), good beds, balcony with great view and most important in the hills: electricity and hot water 24hs, without any disturbing and stinking loud generator - that´s hard to find in the hills.
The perfect place to stay if you want to be away from the chaotic&loud streetlife of Darjeeling, and still have only about 5 minutes walk on foot to cafes and shops on mainstreet. We were there in the middle of a strike, and the proprietors took kind care of us so we had food delivered to our room when all restaurants were closed downtown. All wishes were fullfilled immediately, and it´s really nice to have your tea and breakfast delivered to the room free of charge (as there is no breakfast room). The hotel only comprises a few rooms, why it is really cosy and feels like home. The only place I would go when coming back to Darjeeling!
Only (very small) drawback: you have to walk 3 minutes to get to a taxi, as it is a carfree zone. But you get so much on the plus-side, that you won´t worry about that. Besides the staff will help you to carry your luggage free of charge.
