“Basic but decent and a fair distance from MG Marg”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

I spent about 5 nights and found it to be quite comfortable although a tad bit pricey considering it isn't on MG Marg. It is located in Tadong, which is a 30 rupee share taxi ride to and from the Marg.

The standard room I first checked in to was really claustrophobic and tiny. Too basic for me so I moved to one of the bigger rooms which cost me RS1,300 per night and was of much better standard.

The toilet seat however was really dirty and mouldy underneath the seat but because I always carry a bottle of disinfectant when I travel I cleaned it myself.

Apart from that no real complaints about the cleanliness and my stay was generally comfortable.

The food wasnt great but there are many options for dining at the Marg itself.

Mr and Mrs Dorji Bhutia who own the place were very pleasant and kind, ever ready to assist.

Overall a pleasant stay.

This was one of the most heart moving stays we have had. The family that runs this hotel are so extremely kind, friendly, helpful. We left a little of our heart in Gangtok. The hotel is very nice. The rooms very clean. They great you with a delicious Chai. The food at their restaurant is really good and please do not miss the Tibetan home made bread at breakfast! We are still dreaming about it!!! Soo delicious, not even in Tibet I had this bread! I will totally go back to Tashi Tagey!

It was a special stay for me and my wife, a very memorable one indeed. We had chosen this hotel from Tripadvisor and it lived up to all that was said of the place. We had booked a room for two nights but ended up staying for three since we turned up at Gangtok by a day early.
The owner of the place Mr.Dorji had confirmed our booking and also advised us on the Nathula trip before our arrival. Both the owner and his wife were extremely courteous and made us feel like home all throughout our stay. In fact we were welcomed into their living room to have food and we had long discussions over hot cups of tea.
Location – it is about 2kms from MG Marg. That said it is very easy to get a taxi in Gangtok and the main road which is also the NH31 highway connecting Sikkim runs past it. You can just hail a cab and travel on per seat basis to places like MG Marg for around Rs.15 per seat. The return was the same by asking them for a drop to SBI Tadong. Hence it is well situated and easily accessible to all major areas of Gangtok.
Rooms – We had booked a standard room at first but later upgraded to a bigger room costing a little more since the standard room was very small. The bigger room was very comfortable with distinct area for sitting and bed. The toilets were spic and span with round the clock hot water courtesy the geyser. The room was cleaned up one in a while and we did not have any issues what so ever.
Service – This must be the highlight of the stay. The hosts made us very comfortable and served us food and snacks whenever we asked for. They also provided pocket guides and booked our sightseeing and Nathula pass trips and make enquiry calls when we were out about our progress and if everything was going as planned. Now that what we call taking care!
Food – The food was cooked by the landlady herself and it was really tasty. Being of Tibetian origin, you would get pretty much all kinds of Non Vegetarian spread, but since we were Veggies, she smilingly served us delicious momos, soups, rotis, curries and tea whenever we pit stopped at their kitchen. We also exchanged notes and recipes and chatted away on lots of topics. Also do ask for the local specialty drink which tastes similar to sake and it will be arranged for you.
All and all it is truly worth its every review of excellence, very homely, quite economical, clean, well located, run by a couple who truly walk the talk in terms of hospitality and take that extra effort to make you feel home!

Room Tip: Choose the room one level higher than the basic room if your budget permits

We vsitied this back in 2004. Very comfortable place and more than that it was the extremely friendly staff that made the day for us. It was a great resting place after long hours of looking up the beautiful places around Gangtok. In addtion to this, the food served was extremely good. Esp the roasted rice....would definitley recomend this to anyone ...even though it is a bit off the centre.

Room Tip: The room we were in was large spaciaus and very confortable. I guess this would be the case with all...

THE PLACE to stay while in Gangtok! The warmth, love & affection of aunty & uncle....I cannot describe in words; aunty's food too :o))) Yummmm!
It happened by chance that we stayed at Tashi Tagey & we thank our stars for it. They would go out of their way to organise our days schedule, as well as sort out our problems during & after our stay in Sikkim.
They are one of those acquaintances, who will be treasured for life.
