“worst luck in the hotel”
Reviewed 18 June 2009

I managed to get a room in darjeeling in this hotel when i landed up in evening ( without confirmation ). i got a room at 30% discount but the only caveat was it was in basement. worst part was room had a window outside ofwhich was a wall nearly i ft away.
so practically speaking there was no window at all in the room. i checked in as i was not getting any other room in the hotel and else where.

but when i decided to stay inthe room for one night , how ever the night was tough. room being in basement smelled a lot. there was some smell for whcih reason was being damped, there was no sun light, so it was difficult.

however hotel other wise looked very good actually. other rooms ( saw inthe morning ) on other floor were costly but if you stay on upper floors it is good enough. hotel restarurant also looked great as such, but unfortunately we didn't had a nice experince as we landed up in wrong rooms.

so before booking here, get a confirmation on where the room is. not all rooms on upper floors have valley view as well.


so don't go fo discount they offer, ensure room is not on basement and has valley view, as most of other hotels in same budget offere better views.

It was actually not the good choice with rooms smelling funny and average cost of stay almost equal to a good class hotel. The staff was not well informed and travel agents who disturb you roam around freely in the hotel. In all not a very good choice.

Stayed November 2008
