We stayed in Hotel Zodiac from 20/09/2011 to 26/09/2011. We had originally planned to go to Gangtok also but did not go there due to the earthquake. Our room was very spacious and clean. Though the hotel does not have a restaurant, there service was very good. The manager Rakesh Biswas was very helpful in arranging taxi for our travels. I would recommend the hotel for any budget conscious family without any hesitation.
