Clean and comfortable. The hotel organize trips around. But:
-my wife was ill the last night. Polite indifference. The client must fend for himself.
-departing, we left a lot of postcards at the lobby. The boss verified the stamps and promised to post. Never received by relatives and friends. A month later, we sent a E mail to the hotel. Three months after , no answer.

Dear Mr Bernard ,

We read the review posted by you for our property .We are sure that You and your wife have thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of Suhim Portico during your six nights stay and that is why you had come back again to our property after your visit to West Sikkim, Since you did not had any guide with you the hotel provided complimentary guide for you to your visit to Phodong Monastry ,Gangtok local sightseeing , Aritar lake and Tsomgo lake .

You did not leave any post card for mailing in the hotel lobby or with any of the staffs as claimed by you. There is no Boss in our hotel , we work through Team and we have a Team Leader who supervises us for our daily chores including the welfare of our esteemed Guest so therefore your claim that you discussed checking the stamp of your post card with our boss is out of place.
We did not receive any e-mail from your end .so there is no question of replying your mail from our end .
We request you to revisit your review and post honest review once again.
Looking forward for your continued patronage.
Thanking You

Team Suhim Portico

The hotel was on the down side of Gangtok and even they told me it is a walking distance to the downtown it is not so easy. Gangtok is on the hills so you have to clim up to get there and it is about 1 hour to reach the city center. Not much around the hotel because all important monuments are above the city. However it is easy to get taxi there and nearby is a taxi point where you can get a share ride for 10 Rs. The staff is quite friendly and food was excellent! Rooms are clean but do not belief what you see on the web pictures. It is more dated as it looks like on the picture.

Room Tip: If you are coming during the sunny days ask for a room with the valley view.

Our trip to Gangtok in April 2012 was our first one there. We stayed at Suhim Portico and the amazing, warm and homely experience we got there, makes us wanna go back everyday! From Emmanuel's hospitality, Mr Thapa's yummy food and the comfortable and cozy room, everything was perfect! Kudos to the team running the show!!
We can't wait to plan our next trip to Gangtok and our stay will, without a doubt, be at Suhim Portico!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the valley have a calm and peaceful view

I went to Gangtok for my Honeymoon this year Feb 2012. To be honest i was aware of Portico group but was kind of skeptical about how this hotel will fare out as it was the most special trip of my life. Fortunately, it turned out to be even better than what i could have imagined or wished for. Starting from the room - Spic n span clean, newly built n amazing views and amazing hygiene. To top it all, i enjoyed the best food ever in my life. a 7-course breakfast and 7 course meal. You run out of hunger but not out of the wish to eat more. Amazing service by their well trained and courteous staff.. special mention to "Arun" with his amazing dedication to serve the guests. The location is slightly away from market (M G Road) but you can easily get a shared-cab which takes you to market in 10-15 minutes. Gangtok is a beautiful place and ideal spot for someone who loves hill stations but hates the commercialization like in Mussorie n Shimla. The weather is very cool during Dec-Feb .. ideal for honeymoon ;)

Room Tip: Go for a suite room towards the valley...Awesome view.

We had a wonderful experience in Gangtok and our stay in Suhim Portico was lovely. With hospitality at its finest- staff, food, housekeeping, the hotel made our stay memorable. Pick up, sightseeing and drop back to Bagdogra were all arranged by them. Overall it was a comfortable stay........

Room Tip: Trust the staff. They know best and will go out of their way to help you..
