“Great experience..!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

Our first visit to Gangtok from 11 to 13 April 2012, and Hotel Sikkim Retreat proved to be perfect. The location of the hotel is nice, very near to MG Marg (10 Mins walk). The view from the room was too good. we stayed in room no. 202. The entire experience from check in to check out was very good. The manager Mr. Gurung is very helpful, he arranged our pickup from NJP, trip to Tsongo lake, city tour and drop till Pelling. Thank you for making our stay at Gangtok wonderful.

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view facing room.

No complaints about this hotel. We preferred this hotel based on the reviews and i had no regrets. Hotel is decent. We were given room in ground floor (210). Room was big and had a balcony which had view of the city (not bad though as it was covered with fog most of the time). Room and bathroom were neat. Food was tasty. Service is prompt. Staff were courteous. Only problem with this hotel is its location. Though close to market we cannot go by walk as the road that leads to the market from the hotel is sloppy (more than 45 degrees for sure).

We can easily say that this our wonderful stay at Gangtok and we have already advised our friends and relatives to book this hotel when they will visit Gantok..

This has to be among the best hotels of Gangtok. The check-in was so quick! Enormous room, King size bed, good house keeping and away from the crowd... all made the stay wonderful. Room service was prompt. Staffs were helpful and extremely courteous. Through the window, I could see the hill slope full of trees...gives the feeling of being close to nature. Will definitely come back to this hotel in future and recommend to friends.

We reached Gangtok from Darjeeling around 2 p.m.. The location being near Paljor stadium, finding the place was not a problem. The front office lounge was welcoming. The front office manager and the concierge were very courteous and helpful. I'd requested for a ground floor room as my mother was traveling with us and they obliged.
The rooms were among the best I'd experienced for the tariff. My wife and I stayed in a large room with an excellent balcony. The furnishings were tastefully done up, elegant and also dust-free. The bathroom and toilet, clean and almost spotless. My mother and daughter stayed in the adjoining room, which was a tad smaller but just as comfortable. The balcony was missing in their room, however.
Room service was good. The variety and quality of the food was quite good. They could cater to both my mother's and my daughter's tastes. The variety offered for breakfast ranged from continental to north and south Indian, quite satisfactory.
The advantage of the location is that, though, it is walkable from M.G.Road , it is in an area with low traffic noise. The only disadvantage being the steep slope leading upto it.
To summarize, Excellent ambiance and service, good food and decent location. I recommend it and I'm sure I'll be staying there the next time I visit Gangtok.
