We stayed in this hotel on Oct 1st for 2 N. It's biggest advantage is it's in the heart of the city, evening when you have a free time you can walk to mall road which is very lively.This hotel is built on a height so the walk from the mall road to the hotel is very steep but it's manageable. Rooms are nice,clean and have enough space (in case extra bed is needed for kids). Bathrooms can be more clean ,on cleanliness parameter I Would give them out of 10 but to become perfect they have to take some minor things into consideration (like corners /doors etc.) , Towels were also not very clean. Another thing I'd like to mention is that they don't provide any brocher etc which might be of tourist interest.No body or nowhere in the hotel it was mentioned that we can see Kanchanjunga from this hotel.
we were lucky to get a room (Rm. 301) which had excellent view of kanchanjunga and the valley. Our trip to tiger hill was a waste because of the clouds we could not see the Himalayas, But next morning around 5:15 AM , we were just looking out of the window to figureout the directions and we saw whole Kanchanjunga range shining in the right side window of our rooms. It came as a total surprise to us as we were not aware that we could see kanchanjunga from this place.On every floor they've made balconies so that people can view the Himalayas from that place.
We had buffet breakfast and a la carte dinner at the hotel , both were good and the service was excellent. Staff is also very courteous. Overall a good place to stay.
