Hotel Sonar Bangla - Darjeeling
Ranked #24 of 99 Hotels in Darjeeling
Reviewed 25 March 2012

Overall hotel service was not satisfactory. Hotel location is great only 3 minute walk from mall. Food was normal but not great. Room cleanliness was average and hotel towel was not provided. Room service was terrible, it took several call to get hot water going and no room telephone was available. Hospitality was missing in hotel management staff. Overall, I am disappointed.

Room Tip: Choose room in 2nd or 3rd floor.

This hotel had pretty okay rooms, not very spacious but comfortable. The restaurant serves okay food and does not have much variety. Most of the time we ended up eating out. The location is excellent, centre of the city, it is right behind the Mall road, walkable to taxi stand and if you further ahead, there is Fortune and Elgin. There are many places nearby to shop and eat. The hotel staff is good on service. Overall, a value for money place given its excellent location.

Room Tip: Try for ground and first floor, don't go for basement.

We stayed in this hotel in the 1st week of dec 2011. Hotel is ok ok. For sure wont look for this hotel in case we come next time. First sight of the hotel was disappointing. Thought we should move out to some other hotel but had to stay back because it was booked in advance and we already payed for it.
We were given room in 3rd floor and theres no lift. There was some kind of smell in the room and that was suffocating. Could not dare to open the windows because the view from the room was terrible (facing the adjacent building terrace which was shabby). Room was small and stuffed.
Bed heater was provided which is the good part. Service was good and prompt. Food is tasty.
Hotel is situated in a busy street. Easy access to the market areas for shopping.
