“Surprisingly good package”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

Didn't know much about the place when I booked it on our honeymoon trip; stayzilla.com suggested this place. Turned out to be a very pleasant experience.

The guest house is on the main highway, a few miles down from the main City; the noise from the traffic wasn't intrusive at all despite the proximity. Getting around Gangtok - going to MG Marg and other areas in Gangtok - and returning to Dho Tapu was very easy with a lot of taxis plying on the highway on a very frequent basis.

The rooms were very clean; the staff were very helpful; they handled our laundry with care.

The food was excellent; breakfast was included in our package - and we feasted on the freshly made chapathis, omlettes, etc!

One of the owners of this place also owns the SNOD petrol pump next door; he was very friendly when we met him at breakfast, and later gave us a ride in his car to one of the tourist places since it was on his way!

We stayed for 2 nights; overall a very pleasant experience.

Dho Tapu Guest house is a nice little “boutique” kind of guest house with just 9 rooms, and you get a very homely, cozy atmosphere. It is on the first floor of a shopping centre, but surprisingly nice and quiet. We were recommended this guest house by a colleague who is local native of Gangtok, who did the reservations. We were skeptical about the place first, but were certainly glad after checking in. The rooms are LARGE clean and done up simply but tastefully, fresh clean sheets and towels, nice large clean bathroom, fresh flowers in the room, TV, DVD player.. the works. Some rooms have a nice balcony with Mountain view. The place has a terrace with great Mountain View where breakfast is served. There was no menu.. so one can order what one wants and given some time they will manage. We had nice simple breakfast (the standard breakfast that is available if you don’t pre order) comprising of cereals, juice, tea/coffee, porridge, toast, fruits (eggs/ omlette was also available). No room service though, but helpful though minimal staff. They had a huge collection of DVDs (complimentary for the guests) and we did enjoy watching some of them in our room. We did use their recommend tours and transport arrangements, which were nice as well. The place is nice and cozy and would suggest checking this place out while in Gangtok.
