“truly, home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

There are places where you feel instantly at home, as soon as you set foot on the property. Mintokling is one such place. Pema, the affable owner; Montu, the head of staff and the entire crew was extremely hospitable without being obstrusive. They were there whenever we needed them. We will never forget the food served at the place. Every single meal was top class. The breakfast was the most awaited event of the day for us :-). The place is at a slight distance from the MG road area. But, for us that was the USP, since we would be assured of a good night`s sleep after the hectic schedule of the entire day. The view from the rooms is great too, and we had a stunning view of Kanchenjunga on 3 of the 5 days we were there. I could go on and on, but suffice to say that, Mintokling was the main reason why we enjoyed our visit to Sikkim so much. Will definitely return. Pema, keep up the great job.

Room Tip: We stayed in the double deluxe room (No.202), which has a balcony.

Pros: Excellent location...very warm and friendly people..very helpful..excellent service. what else do you want ?
cons: if you are looking for a "hotel" type accomodation with swimming pool and all....forget it ..this is not what u r looking for
First of all...there is no hustle bustle..2ndly very near to the market . we in fact liked it so much that we came back from north sikkim and stayed again before going back...
Pure value for money!
Rooms are spacious... and there is a small lawn for children with a small pond filled with tadpoles and frogs :)

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms are spacious...and u have access to the lawn as well

I stayed at this place in mid May 2009. This was a small guest house with basic facilities. Location is pretty, can see Kanchanjunga from your room window! It is located on a quite road, 10 min walk to the main market. Inspite of being a vegeterian my family managed decent vegeterian assortment on ala-karte food menu. Staff was courtious and helpful. Room was good and clean. Room service was a bit slow. For my son there was not much to do in terms of activity, but no complains as place was really pretty. Overall a very good experience in this beautiful city of Gangtok in awesome state of Sikkim. Would definately recommend someone who wants a simple and quite stay for their trip.

Room Tip: take kanchenjunga view room.

If you're nature and peace lover and want to avoid hustle and bustle and yet quite approachable to downtown, this is the place you should check-in. We didn't find the booking for another day in our hotel and the owner suggested this place. We got the suite room and deluxe room adjacent to it. We stayed there for two nights before going to darjeeling and had a wonderful time. Good restaurant and we had breakfast which was good. Peam and her team takes good care of their guests and the good thing is that all systems are working from geysers to credit card machine. In a nutshell-wonderful place. Just a suggestion they have ample space if they can add a cross trainer and tred mill for cardio fitness this place will be an ideal retreat in itself.

We stayed at Mintokling for a couple of days in June during our Sikkim trip. We had heard a lot of good things and I have to say that they lived up to our expectation to the hilt. The rooms are nice , fresh and clean while the food served in the restaurant is good but what makes Mintokling the gem of Gangtok is without doubt the warmth and hospitality of Pema and her staff especially Govind who runs the kitchen. Almost felt like home and that's saying a lot.
Look no further when in Gangtok and we will surely be back next time..
Warmest regards,
Jaideep

Room Tip: Rooms on the front overlooking the garden are the best for a grand view of the Kanchenjunga range.

My husband and I stayed at Mintokling Guest House for Four Days in May 12, and we must tell anyone who is thinking of staying at this hotel, don't think any further! We had a wonderful time at Mintokling! The owners are lovely, very helpful and kind people who make you feel that you are meant to be there, and it is your second home.

Beautiful rooms and setting, close to MG Marg. The friendliest, most helpful staff imaginable.
We had a lovely time here, the host is amazing, she ( Pema ) really cares about you having a good time
Staff was very helpful ( Gopal ). He help us alott for every second. View From Room was good, on 1st day we saw Kanchenjunga and 2 days the weather was foggy.
food was sensational and the service was amazing.

Amazing value! I'd go back in a moment and recommend it most highly....!

Room Tip: We stay 303 Room No. and it's on 2nd floor. Room was good and nice view from room
