“Yep, it was good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

It was good but didn't start off brilliantly. I was quite sick when we arrived and the long entry stairs were a problem. It was also really cold in the room (December) but hot waters bottles and thick doonas really helped. I hired a heater on the second night as I was still quite sick. After 2 nights they asked us to change rooms. It is still not clear to me why, so i found it annoying. However the 2nd room was warmer and did have better view, and the mountain appeared and was magnificent. I got better and got over my annoyance and really enjoyed the last two nights. I think the location is good and the views are great when the weather complies. A hot water bottle arrived avery night at 9pm, staff were friendly, co travelers interesting and the atmosphere very pleasant. Recommend - I would definitely stay there again!

Stayed here for 4 nights. The charges are of a budget hotel, the services given by staff and owners was fantastic. The family run hotel is very clean and warm and friendly. The location is awesome. Not to miss the Darjeeling tea served at your bed every morning! The common area here is so unbelievably good, the collection of books is good to relax . Special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Norbu Dekeva for being such perfect hosts and showing us the time of our lives. We will be back again

Spent two nights here and loved it. There are cozy, wood-panelled rooms with plenty of covers and the option of having hot water bottles as well. There are common rooms on each floor, giving this place a great, lodge-y feel. Had some beers and wine, played cards, and talked with other travellers. The people who run this place are awesome - really, really sweet people. Best place we stayed in Darjeeling and the only place I'd want to stay if I went back to Darjeeling.

Owners and staff at Dekeling are very warm people who made my stay felt very much like at home. Although there was limited hot water and no heater in the hotel room, warm water flask and hot water bottle were provided to help me survived the freezing winter nights. If you are keen to have a taste of someTibetan culture and cuisine, this hotel is your choice and it is affordable.
