My wife and I stayed in one of the suites, in April. We thought it was fantastic and recommended it to friends. We looked at the standard rooms, which were dingy and unappealing, but waited for a sutie to become available; there is better value at other hotels in standard rooms. Our friends emailed us to say that the Sonam Delek was like a lifesaver for them. They arrived at Gangtok in a bad state. Food poisining, a train delayed for six hours on a sweltering track due to an accident, all the usual misadventures of India. They needed a stay at the Sonam Delek, and were reluctant to leave. The food is good too. I am a wimp with chili, and the Sonam was one of the few places in Ganagtok that could moderate the heat. The staff were helpful as well.
