“Quaint and homely”
Reviewed 24 June 2016

Revolver - We read up the reviews and had to book this place - because of the positive reviews and because it is a themed place to stay. We had no issues with the booking. We mailed Vikash (the owner) and booked the room John, by transferring a minimum amount.
We live a hectic travel life (on work), so we needed to relax. We reached on Sunday, around 4 pm, and just walked down to the mall and chowrasta after freshening up. We had all our breakfasts there, and 3 out of 4 dinners as well. What do you need to go out for when you can stay home and have such excellent meals? The platters, especially the Naga platters were awesome! The breakfast is so filling, especially if you take the morning delight. You don't need to have lunch then, so we just ate out having the roadside momos, which are light and just right. The lobby downstairs has some lovely books and comics to read and also a guitar, which my husband enjoyed playing.
I also loved the locking system. They have a little letter box on the door to each room and you can leave your room key there when you go out. This little key box has its own unlocking number. This is helpful for housekeeping.
Overall, we had a very pleasant stay and we will definitely be back. Unfortunately, we didn't meet Vikash till the last day when we were leaving as he hadn't been keeping too well. However, Sailesh made up for it, looking after every need that we had!

Nice place to stay. Everything is perfect. Rooms with modern facilities. The concept of geyser and bed heater is very good and unique. It is very close to mall. It is located in a corner. You may view kanchanganha from few room. The food is good and testy. The owner is very helpful and to plan your sightseeing.

Situated at one corner of the mall road lies one of the cosiest and the most hospitable stays in Darjeeling. This Beatles themed hotel is a backpackers paradise!
While we arrived at the ’Revolver’, the place was already occupied by tourists and to our dismay there weren’t any rooms available. However, the owner (Lipok) went out of his way to make our stay possible by making arrangements in one of his own private rooms.
The room was very comfortable with clean linens, tidy comforters and also well placed charging sockets.
We even got a chance to catch up with Lipok (the owner who's also an extremely talented musician) one evening sharing various anecdotes and having a good laugh all through ought thus turning the evening into a very enjoyable and a memorable one!
Overall, it was a very satisfying experience staying at 'Revolver'!

Room Tip: 7 minutes walk from the MALL

First and foremost, this is a Beatles-themed hotel with only five rooms named after the four members and their manager. Secondly, the owner Vikas is a gentleman and a Beatles buff and between him and his wife, they are simply the coolest couple. Reasons enough to go and snuggle here while in Darjeeling.

The pancakes that they offer for breakfast are our staple and we make it a point to relish them every morning that we're there.

Although it's a 10-minute walk from the Mall, yet that added together to another walk down to Joey's Pub completes the musical journey.

While in the Hills, Revolver's the place to be.

Had booked two rooms for two of us almost 3 months back based on the reviews at this site. Stayed there on the 18 th and 19 th of May, 2016, and sure enough were most happy to have found, perhaps the best homely, clean, neat, efficient, functional place for stay at Darjeeling. The food, whatever we had, breakfast, lunch or dinner were excellent. Mr Pradhan and his team deserves congratulations of the highest order for their meticulous effort in keeping their guests happy and contended throughout their stays.Will definitely stay at Revolver in the next visit. Need one say anymore!
