We stayed here for one night, the hotel is just on the malls, u get out of the hotel and you are in the mall.

Location :- on the mall

Rooms :- rooms are clean, rooms on each floors has a attached big corridor, the corridor has a open view of the mountains.

Food :- the hotel has a vegetarian restaurant, the food is good and tasty, you wont regret having a veg lunch/dinner here.

Staffs :- are polite and respectful

If you like to stay on the mall then it is a good option for you.

Room Tip: suites are the best rooms

We booked the hotel through yatra ~12th December for a check in on 28th. When we landed at the hotel, to our surprise, the reception denied any intimation from yatra and said they would not be able to honour the yatra voucher. On calling up yatra, they said that the management refused them booking after confirming first, but yatra did not inform us. Later, there were different versions provided by the management and yatra blaming each other.

Anyways, we booked directly with the hotel for one night since 29th was not available. The rooms were decent, clean with a geyser in the bathroom for 24 hrs water. The best part about the hotel is that it is bang on chowrasta, in the middle of the market. However, there is no taxi drop till the hotel because no vehicles are allowed near the market. You need to get a porter from mall road and walk up to the hotel

The snacks served were good. however, the dinner was strictly average. The hotel is near a mosque hence be prepared to wake up at 6 am with the prayers being recited on a loudspeaker. Also, ensure you get rooms at the back side, not facing on the mall, to avoid market noise.

Due to this miscommunication between yatra and hotel, we had to shell out 4.5k extra for another hotel.

Strongly suggest booking this hotel directly and not through any online agent.

The hotel is just next to mall market and close to chowrasta. Colonial style rooms with wooden panelling. Kettle(tea coffee making facility) geyser, good food, toiletries provided. Some small niggles are that the shower couldn't practically be used as the water pressure was very less. The toothbrush holder was dirty. The dressing light wasn't working. So it could do with abbot more of quality check and upkeep. Other than that linen and rooms were clean.
Please note if you have a lot of luggage you be better off requesting a porter as vehicles cannot approach the hotel. It's about a 3 to 4 min walk from bhanu bhavan and the road is at a slight incline.

Overall good stay.

I went to Darjeeling in the month of March. It was pretty chilled weather all over Darjeeling. Booked hotel sunflower online blindly without watching reviews. But had a very enjoyable stay in hotel.
Hotel is at main/central location exactly on mall in Darjeeling. Rooms are small, crampy but ok. Food is good in quality but only vegetarians food served as per hotel policy. Vehicles can't go up to door step in day time as main mall road. Hotel has two floors below ground , no lift. One can see tallest peak Kangchenjunga from room also.Overall nice hotel at stay as it is at main center place.

Best feature of this property is its location. The hotel staffs are very courteous.
I had stayed in a two bedded room the size of which was very impressive.

Note : They do not serve any non veg food. Wifi signal was not accessible from the the room.
