Reviewed 4 June 2012

We had stayed for 4 days during first week of Feb, 2012. Starting with Tibetan ambient and warm help from Hotel Owner was appreciable. We had stayed at 1 floor at 1st night and then shifted to top floor where view of valley is incredible.Since, it was cold weather there, I requested for 1 hot water bag and a extra heater. With deep concern about our stay and health, they provided 2 water bags and warm water every night for drinking purpose. I am very much impress by the treatment and hospitality from Lady in house. We were enlighten by their sharing of custom and culture of Tibet. Also, stay budget is also reasonable. Here, you can roam around the Darjeeling, the hotel is located at heart of city and reachable for every hot spot.

Room Tip: Ask to Hotel Owner, if you have any trouble. It is really helpful to talk directly to Owner rather t...

If you would like a cozy, friendly, homely place to stay at in Darjeeling with reasonable prices your choice should be Hotel Seven Seventeen.
We were lucky to get a nice room there in April 2012. The hotel which is owned by two charming tibetan couples is well located in the center of Darjeeling and has a gourgeous view over Kanchenjunga if only the weather is clear.
The hotel have nice rooms, a cozy library and a good restaurant , which offers traditional tibetan dishes just as well as indian and western dishes.
We would strongly recommend this hotel to our friends because of the friendly athmosphere by the tibetan owner families and the whole staff.

I enjoyed my brief stay at this hotel. It was a reasonable price, and the staff were friendly and professional. The hotel is very quaint, and tibetan, and had many Tibetan artifacts and small exhibitions in the public areas. I was staying on the top floor, and the room had a lovely view out over the Chowk Bizarre markets, and the hills around Darjeeling.

I found the room to be clean, and comfortable. I also enjoyed a nice meal in the restaurant, and the waiters were very attentative.

The hotel does have a lot of stairs, which might be an issue for some guests if they are on a high floor. I enjoyed this aspect personally. The hot water does take a while to draw to the room, and as there are signs in the bathroom asking not to wast water, it would be a good idea if the hot and cold water taps were labelled clearly. I had to call reception to confirm which tap was the hot water tap, which was a little annoying.

All in all, this is a nice little hotel in Darjeeling, and had a nice homely atmosphere, and the staff were service focused. I would recommend this hotel for those wanting a comfortable stay, at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Rooms on high floor facing back of hotel have lovely views

Clean, good food, good service. The owners run a gift shop in the hotel lobby and the prices are better than in the shops outside since the prices are fair and there's no need to do any bargaining. The staff also helpful and friendly. Location right in town. The interior is very colorful in Tibetan style.
