“A great budget backpacker hotel with astounding views but terribly damp rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2011

Hotel Tower View is the first budget option for all backpackers arriving in Darjeeling. A great meeting point for like minded souls, the efficient restaurant is a great place to hangout over views of Kanchenjunga or browse through books on the shelf. The only negative is that the hotel is terribly damp. The dormitory especially is like a dungeon and the downstairs rooms just slightly better. Plumbing is a bit dodgy as well. But the prices are unbeatable and total value for money. If you are short on cash this is definitely the hotel to head to. It's at one of the highest points in Darjeeling and requires a 15 minute steep trek up the steps and slopes to get to from the market, but the view from hotel restaurant and rooms is worth it.

Room Tip: try to get a room upstairs
