This old hotel, with its gaudy, yet gripping decor - with all the pictures, the make-believe silk and brocade curtains, the thick counterpanes and bedspreads with their oriental ornaments - is a rather misleading one. Behind all that, there is dirt and - having their natural habitat in abundance - cockroaches of the irkingly large type and numbers. Somehow the hotel reflects what the entire Gangtok is all about: fancy outside appearance with dirt and poverty behind! But as we so frequently experienced during our travels in India, even poverty does not necessarily come hand in hand with dirt. Moreover, the Soyang is a wealthy outfit, with several buildings in the middle of the promenade of the capital city of Sikkim. With a bad management and an apparent lack of caring! (Dirt, no mosquito nets on the windows etc.)
So, do not let yourself mislead by the traditional looking, old Chinese-Tibetan decor!
