Reviewed 9 January 2012

We visited this hotel from 15th-19th December 2011. Booking was easy. It was a comfortable stay with excellent staffs and good arrangement. The room was quite large and cozy. Hot water bags and well arranged fireplaces provided us the necessary comfort which we needed in the cold season. It is just on the mall and so everything was quite close. The trips were arranged by the hotel staffs in very short notices. We could see the Kanchenjugas clearly from the lobby attached to our room. Room faced a beautiful garden. There was also an observatory on the terrace from which you could view all the distant hills and the start lit sky. Overall, it was wonderful. However, lunch and dinner was not available in the hotel premises which was bit of a worry in the cold season. Thanks to Bellevue. Would visit it again and again

Stayed with my parents from 21st dec 2011 to 23rd dec 2011 .Nice homely and tradition experience. Hotel staff were nice and helpful whenever needed either for rooms or tours. The room was quite large and very clean. And had a nice experience. Also enjoyed the view of sun rise from the room itself. Very helpful. Willing to go and stay there again.

For a semi-budget hotel, you really can't go wrong with the Bellevue. My husband and I spent three nights in Darjeeling in Late November 2011 and were very satisfied with our stay at this hotel. The proprietor and staff were very nice and helpful, the room was actually quite large and very clean. I had read that there were stoves in each room, which was true. Unfortunately they weren't working when we got there, so instead they would give us hot water bottles to put into our beds at night because it was so cold. It's location is great because it sits at the top of the hill of the city center, so you get great views.

The only con about this hotel is that it's a little hard to find because there are so many hotels with Bellevue in the name, and this is the last one in the line; since you can't drive up to it (that part of the street is pedestrian-only), just keep walking until you're at the top of the hill. Also, and I'm not sure if it's like this all over Darjeeling or just the area where we were staying, every night at 3am all the dogs of Darjeeling decided to convene and they would bark and howl for 2 or 3 hours every night riight outside the hotel. Luckily we'd brought ear plugs, so it wasn't a problem. I don't think there's anything the hotel can do about this as dogs seem to be a citywide problem, but, bring some earplugs and you'll be fine!

Room Tip: We chose the room standard room available and it was great. No need to book rooms with views unless...

The hotel is at the very top of the ridge, facing straight onto the mall square and is in an ideal spot. The room was oddly shaped but quirky and comfortable, the bathrooms could use a little maintenance but were clean. The shower was boiling hot (need it because it gets very cold), nice staff, nicely furnished sitting room and overall a great stay.

Room Tip: Most rooms face onto the street and can get a little noisy in the early morning, but this seems to b...
