I stayed at the Dekeling Hotel for 3 nights in early October. Booked a normal room after reading the reviews on Tripadvsior and was not disappointed. I am sure the mountain view rooms are nice, but the view from the common room which is accessible by all is more than good enough,plus we were away from any street noise. We were fortunate that Kanchenjunga was clearly visible for the first time this season on our first morning. I have included a photo with this review.
Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast and cups of tea were good. Wifi works OK, bur works better in the common room.
As others have said, the gracious Mrs Norbu is present every morning at breakfast and makes a point of going round and talking to all the guests and providing any advice required. Her staff are well trained and provide a good level of service from the reception desk, down to good hand drawn maps if required.
After spending many hours walking around the hilly streets and steps of Darjeeling, I would have to say, the location of this hotel is hard to beat.
A word of warning, if you have trouble getting up steps, unfortunately, this hotel is not for you. There are about 40 steps from the street level to the front door of the hotel, as it occupies the upper stories of the building it is located in and there is no lift.
