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. Since it was below zero degree, we were provided with hot water-bags to warm ourselves. The best part was the Breakfast. It is sumptuous and very tasty. Already recommended many and shall... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

After a harried trip to get to Darjeeling it was such a joy to arrive to Magnolia. The manager is so friendly and accommodating and has excellent fluent English. Our deluxe room was neat and clean.
