Dekeling offers you the best! Polished wooden interiors and an excellent lounge are the highlights. It has everything to offer- from a corner library to a cozy fireplace. The lounge upstairs is the perfect place for indulging in a conversation . The USP of the hotel are the 'rooms with a view'.One can witness the magnificent sunrise over Kanchenjunga from the hotel room itself. So you needn't wake up at 3 in the morning and rush to the sunrise-viewing spot. I and 3 of my travel mates take rtae this hotel 'excellent' without hesitation!

What a gem! We stayed here for a few nights before doing the 5day Singalila trek, and then a couple of nights afterwards. We requested the same room (budget in the attic, shared bathroom with a view of the mountains - on a clear day!) & got it no problem. In fact we were welcomed "home" by the adorable owner on our return! The beds & bedding were divine; the common areas lovely & the addition of a hot water bottle every night a very special (& appreciated!) touch. Hot water availability was variable (but great shower when it was) and shared bathroom could've done with a more frequent clean. However I would thoroughly recommend the Dekeling for its warmth (hot water bottle AND welcome) & gladly stay again in a jiffy :)

India can be daunting: the crowds, the incessant horn-honking, the simultaneous threats of falling into some hole while hitting one's head. High above Darjeeling is a place where you can escape that. Hotel Dekeling should not be missed. Sangay (the owner with husband Norbu) and her Tibetan family are great hosts and they provide amenities that delighted us: a great common room with large windows that look out over the town (sometimes, in the mornings, you see Kanchenjunga); a great library (Western classics, Indian classics, others); an atmosphere that enables and encourages great conversation with other guests/travellers in the common room; a location that is an enjoyable walk away from the places we wanted to get to (Observatory Hill, Himalayan Mountain Institute, Tibetan Refugee Center, restaurants, etc.). (Lunar restaurant downstairs has the best dosa we enjoyed in India. Kunga--also downstairs--serves up very good food, too.) They happily provided the usual additional services such as advice regarding Darjeeling activities, as well as unusual services, like volunteering her hot-water bottles for our Singalila trek. The service is attentive and proactive. Our room and private bath was more than adequate; we were happy that it was clean and well-maintained by the staff. We gladly recommend it to anyone who can make it up the stairs. (The walk up provides an aerobic workout!) Bill Lindenfelser, Rochester, NY, USA

Super friendly team. About 5 flights of stairs from street level to Hotel Reception plus another 1 or 2 to the room so pace yourself on arrival. Once inside it's worth it. Good room selection. We had Himalaya facing room which would have given fantastic view if the cloud had not been thick in the valley. Nevertheless we could watch the street action below. Good food, comfy lounges, and great atmosphere with Tibetan hospitality.

We really enjoyed our stay here.. Run by a lovely family with clean rooms and a central location.. Would advise to call and check your booking before arrival.. We had given a deposit but were still double booked and sent up to their sister hotel for our first night, which was out of season, and freezing!
