“Not clean but helpful staff”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

I booked late and there was only a triple room (300 Rs) available. Very basic, not too clean (especially the bathroom) but acceptable for the price. Food was good, the restaurant a cosy place and the staff helpful with well priced travel arrangements.
A bit of a (uphill on the way back) walk from the centre though.

Pros: nice view (at least if you have a southern room), quiet, friendly service, good price.
Cons: hot water only 2 hours at evening time, not-so-very-good restaurant, about ten minute walk from the main hotel area in Dr. Zakhir Hussein rd.

Worst experience ever. Mattress and best sheets were moist, room was dusty. Hot water only available for 2 hours from 4 to 6 pm in double rooms. Noise at night is terrible. No central heater, no A/C, no TV. Soap & toilet paper were not provided. Toilet with no flush system (bucket to be used). Towel given was dirty. Owner was dishonest when it came to arrange transportation from "hotel" to nearest city to the airport. Internet is paid by the half hour/hour and is slow. This place got me sick. I would not recommend it to anyone!

I could live in Aliment a whole year. The location, the View, The Lounge, The rooftop, The Food and the People! I've been everywhere in India and Nepal, Darjeeling is my Favorite!

A clean guesthouse run by a friendly and informative family high in the hills of Darjeeling city. Situated about 15 minute walk from the main bazaar area. The beds are comfortable and the hotel is quiet. The only downside is the indian style toilets bit that can be overcome. I haven't met a more helpful or pleasant family in the hotel business. Quite a charming place to stay. Hot shower morning and evening. Fast internet cafe downstairs. Roof top restaurant with reasonable prices. The way to the hotel is a very steep hill climb, you cannot go up and come down alot, if you think you have left something in your room, while you are downtown, forget to pick it up from your room and come down in a minute....and after the climb....obviously the view would have to compensate it, or else nothing else is extra-ordinary. The room rates are very reasonable..in Rs.250-350 you will get a decent double bed room.

We stayed at Hotel Aliment for 5 nights and felt very much at home by the time we left. We really liked the hotel owner, Jhulendra Gurung, who is very helpful and friendly. For backpackers, this is a great find.

For anyone taking a shorter holiday, be prepared that there is no central heating (it gets pretty cold at night) and that the generator goes out at about 9PM - but that's fairly typical in Darjeeling!
