The hotel is on the uphill road away from the Mall (on the road with the stable). The hotel itself is clean. The room, though not very big, is clean and luxurious. But it is on a very narrow road with cheap hotel/eateries on both sides. The approach road is through a local market, quite dirty. The breakfast served was...

Stayed from 26.05.2016 to 28.05.2016, room no 305. The room was clean and tidy with excellent view. They offer breakfast at rooftop which gives you an excellent sentiment. All staves are really helpful and polite. Mr.Navin is a very helpful and guide us for our sightseeing. The Mall is just 3-4 minutes’ walk from the hotel.

Traveled in Jan 2016, Room was very cozy, Although rooms do not have any view but from terrace a spectacular scenery can be viewed. Staffs are very hospitable.

Nice hotel at the top of town. Comfy beds with good bathrooms. Dont stay on ground floor unless you know it's one of the rooms with a proper window. Ours looked onto a corridor and the bathroom has a grill that opens onto ground level on the very noisy street. Quite loud! Great breakfast and helpful staff. Good value

We enjoyed our stay at the Magnolia. Its location is a definite advantage, as Dr Zakir Hussain Road is a pedestrian road, so we were not disturbed by the incessant hooting of vehicles. The manager sets the tone by his welcoming and friendly manner, the bedroom was comfortable, the bathroom clean and the roof-top restaurant has a great view of...

Hotel rooms are cozy but all rooms are cleaned and decorative.It is near Chowrasta, you can pass evening time sitting on benches and relax for a while. Market and mall road just nearer to the hotel. Vehicle is not allowed up to hotel. So, you have to book coolie to carry your luggage to hotel.

By far, your best option in Darjeeling. After 4 years Magnolia Residency shines even more brightly! There are no words to describe this wonderful place which not only continues to be a safe haven but also serves the best breakfast we have had in India! It is not trivial to maintain an excellent service but the owner of Magnolia does...

I've just checked out of this hotel today. Once you visit Gangtok - you will most probably not like Darjeeling much, especially if its a part of the same trip. However, Hotel Magnolia is one of the nicer things to happen to us in an otherwise so-so Darjeeling visit. The place is budget - so you should not expect to...
