Reviewed 5 May 2012

we went to Darjeeling without booking. knocked on a few doors before staying at this place. had to bargain tariff. they have family rooms for 4. views are good if clear weather. restaurant below is ok for dinner. this street is a busy one as all in india. hotel can be better or even worse.....

Room Tip: surely backside rooms to get views and avoid road noise

By mistake i booked this hotel for 4 days so i have too stay there because i did made the payments,they promised me three star facilities but later i found that they are bunch pf theivies who dont care about hospitality ...never come to this hotel because
1)Location::the location where this hotel is situated is pathetic,you will found a dustbin directly in front of the hotel main gate,and this hotel is in a very narrow street which isolates you from the beautiful view of darjeeling
2)No good Cabs ::I asked for a cab to visit darjeeling ,,and they asked a price of 2800 Rs,,where as later i got the cab from outside in only 1800 Rs(so they are just money makers)
3)Bad food:Each and every time i ordered some food either it was not tasty or it was not hot
Over all i would say you guys please dont spoil your hard earned money on these types of hotels ,,go for good hotel

I visited darjeeling in nov for business purpose and stayed here for 2 nights.

the overall experience at the hotel was okay. the room was spacious. on a clear day one can see kancendzonga from the room.Food at the hotel was delicious. the staffs were polite and courteous.

the hotel manager was helpful in arranging taxi for airport drop .

overall a decent place to stay in if traveling on budget . the location of teh hotel is also convenient . its close to the mall. some 15 mins walk . locality was slightly congested.

Room Tip: try and get the kanchendzonga view rooms only . non view rooms are not good and small.

Avarage quality. rooms have all standard facilities. Fridge was working well. Hot water machine contains small amount of water. Extra charge for room heater. Good window view at mountain view rooms. Restaurant is good. Location is bit far from main buzzing area of Darjeeling.

Dear friend
I went to Darjeeling & Gangtok in month of October 2010 (from 3rd oct. to 10 oct). I enjoyed the climate of Darjeeling but Darjeeling itself is now dirty. Any way I was very satisfied with the service of North Star. It's a good hotel in my view. Waiters are very coperative.

Advice : If u want to go to Gangtok then pls don't go in the month of October, becasue i could not go to a fomous lake, baba mandir, zero point, yumthang. These are place to see in Gangtok but due to landslide i could be able to go there. Before going there u pls check when should go there. But in Darjeeling u must go to see sun rise it will be a good adventure in your life.
