I went here with not a little trepidation after reading reviews whingeing about all the steps etc.I am hopeless on hills and steps so was dreading it,but it wasn't bad and you can stop if you need to...although by now,the lovely manager,Norbu and his delightful wife,will have finished the new stairs which will make access so much easier. The hotel...

Found this hotel to be too pricey for what it offered. The place is an absolute maze to get around inside. One of the few hotels on our trip that didn't offer some sort of free breakfast. Our room was very large and pretty comfortable. Bathroom was older and nothing special. Common areas are pretty cool, sadly the great views...

I am a very avid traveler and this is hands down the most homey hotel I have ever stayed in. The common room in an absolutely lovely place to sit by the fire (with a pot of delicious Darjeeling tea) and talk with other travellers. The staff is out of this world friendly and accommodating and the rooms were cozy...

I stayed in this hotel with my wife for three nights - 4 to 7 April 2014. We were coming from Gangtok after spending 3 nights in The Nettle & Fern hotel. We were highly disappointed after seeing the congested and dirty roads in Darjeeling. The hotel was easy to reach, right on road at the start of market near...

The Dekeling Hotel is a sight for tired, traveling eyes! Comfort unlike anything else we had experienced in India. Our room (A3) was absolutely beautiful. Stain glass windows and a great view of the valley below. The beds were so comfortable, and the sheets unbelievably soft. Plenty of warm blankets, too! And every night we were delivered hot water bottles,...

We can't say enough about the Dekeling Hotel and its staff. It has a great location, nice rooms, good food, but the staff is what makes the hotel so excellent. Both the desk clerk (we wish we knew his name) and the woman we saw primarily in the eating area were helpful and delightful. My girlfriend and I highly recommend...

We spent 5 weeks in India and travelled across a lot of the country. This was by far the best accommodation we had during our trip. The food in the restaurant downstairs was also some of the best we had during our trip. Nothing is too much for the staff. You are greeted by the owner when you arrive with...
