Very good location. Staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant has very good food. The only problem is that the hotel has no elevators and climbing to the fifth floor several times every day is quite tiring. Overall, very good hotel. Highly recommended. Mashrafi Dhaka, Bangladesh

It is at the back side of Glenary. Very close to mall road. Service very good. We stayed at 3rd floor, 603 & 605, on 29-30 October 2022. View from room excellent. But all rooms are not such type. No lift is there. Car goes upto gate of hotel, but road is very congested and car cannot stay there for much time.

It was a nice experience in sonar Bangla Darjeeling. Good view from d super deluxe room ND also d suite room. Super yummy food . Only thing that thr is a very limited variety in d brkfast which they should work up on. Nd very difficult to get upto d higher floors as thr is no lift which is definitely a problem for ppl with heart disease nd leg pain.staffs were very good ,well behaved nd caring. Its just in d lower lane of glenarys takes only a few minutes to go to mall. Cars cn directly drop u to d hotel.

First of all the Hotel Location is Good just few hundred meters from Mall, staffs are very friendly specially the room service boy always respond with a smile. Rooms are old need maintenance. Bathroom with broken tiles, mattress that will pain your back. the worst part is the food. there is a huge gap between the food we order and the food we received. they charged Rs:- 400.00/Day for room heater which should be included in room tariff because this is something mandatory in Darjeeling. whatever rating i am giving is because of the behavior of the staff.

"We stayed at Hotel Sonar Bangla on our trip to Darjeeling and it was great. A nice cosy hotel which was located in the city center. A very convenient location because all the attractions were at a walking distance. Very budget friendly hotel with decent rooms and a good breakfast spread. The staff were very nice and friendly, esp. Ramesh and free breakfast served in the room itself, was great. The manager Mr Banerjee was very cooperative. The duplex Room was perfect for myself and my wife. Our room faced the mountainview. Enjoyed staying there. Would definite stay here again!"
