The best thing about this hotel is it's location. Just next to the Kanchenjunga view point, away from the chaos of the mall , however the mall is a mere 10 mins walk from the hotel making it very convenient. Now for the rooms; the rooms are neat and tidy . Preferred rooms will be 401, 402 , 501 and...

View is nice but no proper Maintenance for the below ground level rooms. Full of insects even big spiders. Rooms of the Top floor is better to take. Food is good and staffs are cooperative. But can't spare the insect part.

You visit Darjeeling to view Mt. Kanchenjunga from diverse viewing locations, and end up being awed by its Majestic presence - no matter from where you view it. If you select the right hotel, you can watch the rising sun bathe it inch-by-inch every morning, from your hotel room. We stayed at the Dolphin hotel, located on Mall road, right...

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The location is nice, right next to Raj Bhavan and Observatory. Mall is 10-15 minutes walking distance. The staff is extremely helpful and well behaved. Food is nice and rooms are satisfactory. The only downside is low network coverage and no wi fi at the hotel. While they can't do anything about...

Shabby hotel not worth the money spent. Smelly damp room. Water heater wires in the bathroom dangerously exposed. Discovered a mouse in the room one morning! Service slow, but staff courteous. Only advantage: close to mall
