This is the dirtiest hotel i have ever stayed. All steel fittings in washrooms are rusted. When we reached the hotel foul smell was also coming from washrooms. It gives a feeling that you are living in dharamshala. Perhaps dharamshalas would be better than this dirty hotel. When we went to dinner buffet on first night we could only eat...

Located about 1 km from MG Road but people have trouble locating it. But once you find it should not be a problem. A road with steep slope leads to the hotel. The hotel is just like any other 2 star property. The staff there is helping and warm. My room had a view of construction in the hotel premises...

The hotel is simply awesome for the price that they charge. My wife and I visited Gangtok for the first time and were amazed at the service provided. The rooms were simply awesome.

Hotel is on a 60 degree inclined road which is as wide as a rickshaw! very troublesome to commute with vehicles which most travellers would have. Staff is literally just "stationed" there! they really don't know how to contribute to your trip. Pathetic Food!, rather go out and have momos everyday!. Rooms are good and well furnished, else I would...
