“Anand Palace Darjeeling”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

Average Hotel with no car parking. Location is good as it is walking distance from Darjeeling Railway Station and the ridge road and Nehru Road. Hotel staff so - so. Room are nice and cosy. Room decor of our two rooms on fifth floor were very good. Few rooms on the sixth floor are better and more expensive. Food offered in the restuarant is good. Off season discount is also available.

Had been to Anand palace after visiting Gangtok on the 26th of July. We had stayed in Club Mahindra Gangtok. We were four cousins and had come to Darjeeling in an Innova which had cost us around Rs 2800/-. It was a four hour drive from Gangtok because of the landslides.

The hotel doesn't have a view from any side. We were on the 5th floor. It has buildings on all the sides. The breakfast buffet is very limited. Dinner was good. The hotel is still under renovation. The entrance to the hotel really put us off. it is a very narrow entrance and if u have your own vehicle then bad luck. The hotel doesn't have parking even for a single vehicle. U may park on the road and pray to god that nothing happens as the road is very narrow.

Coming from Club Mahindra and Gangtok, we didn't find the hotel that good because the facilities are that good in this hotel, the buffet spread not as good and the view wasn't that good.However, if we had come here first, i am sure we would have appreciated it.

Darjeeling as compared to Gangtok is not very clean and developed. There are not many places to visit. In the morning session u can go to rock gardens. This is a water fall which is good. For the full trip with about 1 hour in the garden it took us around 3 hours and cost us Rs 800/- in a sumo. The second half of the day, u can visit some 5 or 6 points. It would cost u around Rs 1000/-

The trip from Darjeeling to Bagdogra cost us Rs 2400/- in an Innova and took us around 3 hours. We had started at 7:30 in the morning, therefore there was no traffic jam. People had suggested us to start around 6 hrs before the flight departure because of the frequent jams. There are around 6 roads from Darjeeling to Bagdogra / Siliguri / Jalpaiguri. Even if there is a landslide u can be sure that there is always one road open!!!

Room Tip: Take any room. It is the same

Oh, what a mistake going to this hotel. The only advantage is it is in midst of town but the views out of window are actually the walls and roofs of other buildings. Rooms are not good--they say super delux but it did not have even a single chair and no attractive interiors. Do not believe the reception staff--they booked me a taxi, took all money in advance and left me to face the drivers, transporter on my own. In fact they booked me one car but asked me to travel in an inferior car after taking the advance. Beware !

Was there for a three nights four days trip with friends , we chose the hotel after seeing the pictures on the website ,on arrival we found the hotel indeed was really very beautifully decorated with different themes for different floors , the rooms were neat and clean ,the location was the greatest advantage centrally located amidst shopping arcades and multiplexes' ,the food quality was excellent ,the staff were very cordial , we simply freaked out.

The hotel's best advantage is it's location n the interiors are pretty good but there is No Power Backup n if u are planning your vacation in rains then Look for it.
Room service is average and there is no uniformity in rooms, you may get a smaller room in the same rent !
Food is good but the restaurant is quiet small, so there are chances that you'll have to stand and eat ! Finally, there is no supply of 24 hrs hot water there are fixed hrs in which you'll get hot water. It's location is an advantage for shopaholics but there is no parking space in front of the main gate of the hotel.
overall i don't find it a value for money deal !
