“Good hotel with few scope of improvement”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The hotel was booked via Cleartrip around 3 months in advance. The booking was in place but the rooms were not ready even reaching 3 hours after hotel check-in time. Took them another 1 hour to set the room. Was very annoying after tiresome journey. Bed was comfortable and duvet was warm. Hot water available from 7am till 9am and 5pm till 7pm. The shower pressure with hot water was very relaxing. Were staying at 2nd floor and no noise from outside to hamper your sleep. There was no house-keeping service for 3 days we stayed!! Just opposite the hotel there is shortcut to the mall which will take around 5 mins but if you want to avoid the steep climb then one can reach the mall in around 10 mins. Rooms were bigger compared to Darjeeling standard. We ate at the hotel's restaurant. Taste was not as per with other Tibetan restaurants. The way they prepared Darjeeling tea was unacceptable spoiled the flavor. The food service was extremely slow. The management does allow smoking inside the restaurant but don't have separate smoking zone. But after so many observations still giving 4 star for the room costing me INR 1100 per night. Good value for money all-together.

Room Tip: Shop at the ground shop next to reception. Good price in Darjeeling.

This is a wonderful Tibetian hotel,everyone is so helpful,the landlord and landlady are warm and so affectionate.They have opened a new resort 'Little Tibet' which is much more stategically located with a clear view of the Himalayan range and the valley.Nice little souvenir shop at both offers visitors with cheaper price and genuine tag.Food is very good and hygenic.

This is nice hotel in the center of Darjeeling. The decoration in tibetan style with various pictures, traditional tools etc. gives that extra feeling. Rooms are ok, though rather small, bit smelly (common in monsoo eaffected areas) and hot water occassionaly missing. The owner is Tibetan refugee who loves to invite her guest to her apartment on the highest floor for tibetan tea and brief them thoroughly about the plight of tibetan refugees and tibetan people under Chinese rule.

Nice clean hotel with very warm, friendly and helpful owners. Staff is also very helpful. Mrs Tashi is very helpful and make us feel like family. It is a tibetian family-run hotel. Nice restaurant and shop with reasonable price to buy local items.

Room Tip: Check their suite rooms and with a view to Kanchanjunga..

Our family have a very good time for our vacation at the hotel. It is extra normal, as far as the tibetan culture is concerned. We have learnt a lot, when we are there. Food and service is excellent. We are looking forwards to visiting Darjeeling and staying at hotel again in April.

We stayed at this hotel from 4th March to 7th March 2013, booked directly after reading reviews on tripadvisor, Mr Bhutia was really helpful. We stayed at 2nd floor due to my Mom could not climb top floors. Hotel717 has a decent restaurant and bar, lot many dishes available, try Tibetan dishes, Momo & Soup etc, only problem we found in terms of food is less salt on all kind of foods, some time its good to have less salt. Hotel is situated on HD Lama Road which is always congested due to vehicles parked on the sides of the road. But many places are walking distance from the hotel, Mall is just 10 mins walk, Taxi Stand is 5 mins, ATM is next door. The Hotel has a small shop for purchasing souvenir run by Mrs. Bhutia, Aunty is very kind, has taken out some time to show us their home and home temple, we paid our homage to Lord Buddha. Shop has many souvenir in lower rate than out side market. I would recommend Hotel 717 to all specially for family with kids, really decent hotel to stay at Darjeeling.

Room Tip: Check the rooms with Hill View, prefer to have rooms on 3rd or 4th floor.
