The location of the hotel, the food and the staff are three key pillars which make Swiss Hotel an excellent place to stay. We also met the owner, Siddharth, who was extremely cordial and makes one feel at home. its a comfortable 10 mins walk from the mall and has a parking lot, which saves some carrying effort. even in the absence of Mr. Uttam Paul, the manager, the service staff did an excellent job, especially Arpan with his smiling face, serving us in the rooms. The Jamling Norgay room is excellent for an early morning view of the kanchenjunga, although due to cloudy weather, we were not so lucky. We had first booked at Kabru Cottage, which was also nice , later we shifted to the mentioned room , since it offered a well lit up sunny room. One suggestion though is that the rooms could have been better lit up and maybe a touch of maintenance could have made it almost perfect. Although energy saving effort is undoubtedly praiseworthy, some more bright lights could not have increased the carbon footprint much. Mr. Paul met us on the day we were leaving and we had the most pleasant interaction with him. Overall I would definitely recommend this place to people who want to stay in a home away from home!
