Reviewed 21 July 2015

I stayed there long time ago with my friends. Very reasonable considering pretty descent sized rooms and good food. Their suit is on the top floor with a unhindered view of the mountains. Location is 10 minutes climb up to the mall road.

I've been here with my friends in june , hotel people are very courteous and are ready to help at any given point of time, beautiful tibeten decoration in rooms, the best thing about hotel is there food, they have class taste and we booked the hotel on MAP plan and guess what a lovely dialogue took our heart, (sir jitna khana h kha lijiye baki chord dijiye) just like our mom say to us at our home, will definitely recommend this hotel , the only bad thing is WiFi, I expect WiFi but even restaurant have the bad WiFi ..it should b there.

We stayed at Hotel Seven Seventeen for 6 nights before and after our trek. The rooms are basic but comfortable as half of the rooms offer a fantastic view over Darjeeling and the surrounding mountains.

The breakfast at the hotel restaurant is very good as we ate dinner there on a few occasions as the quality and choice is as good as mainly of the nearby restaurants. The staff were always very friendly and helpful, and the owners especially went out of there way to ensure all guests were comfortable and happy. The rooms were a little loud at times due to thin walls but we still slept well.

The hotel gives you a very Tibetan ethnic place look, with all the decoration , interior designing done very well and maintained. The rooms were clean and gave you a royal feeling. We had the suite booked and i tell you it will give you the feeling of a king and queen from the Tibetan Era. The room had beautiful painting and the colour of the walls was so enchanting. I would highly recommend you to book the suite. I was there with family and had a great stay.

Food served was in good taste and room service was also up to the mark.

PROS: Very near to the mall road and shopping place.
CONS: The road towards the hotel is very small and the car parking makes it difficult to walk

Room Tip: Suite - its worth every penny

Impressed by the series of good reviews, I had booked hotel 717 for our family trip to Darjeeling (March 28 -31, 2015). We were simply over whelmed by the hospitality shown by the hotel owner. I must admit that Mrs Bhutia is so caring and concerned about all the boarders, it is unlikely to be experienced in any other hotel. A devout Budhdhist, her philosophical understanding and ideas about life makes her company memorable to anyone who spends time with her. I must appreciate the colourful Tibetan decor which speaks high of the aesthetic sense of the owners. The boutique shop she runs has a beautiful collection of gift items and the things are priced very reasonably. Food at the restaurant is also quite good. We stayed at Room No 301& 302. The rooms are very cozy and offers a wonderful view of Kanchenjungha, provided the sky is clear. The Singalila range borders the view across the window. Locationally, it just a 5 min walk up to Mall and few steps down to Chowk Bazar. We had a wonderful stay at 717 thanks to all the staff of the hotel, particularly madam. Last but not the least our driver Lama da ( Hari Lama) added to the pleasure of our trip. We would love to come and stay at 717 every time we visit the Queen of Hills.
