Hi
There are many hotels in your budget i.e Rs 2000 per day for a double bed room, Hotel Ascot at La DEn La road, is one of them, I stayed there in October 2012, neat and clean hotel with 24 hour water supply, hot water 7 A.M to 10 A.M and 6 P.M to 8 P.M.

Thanks
Alok

Hi
I booked a Wagon R for darjeeling from NJP, paid Rs 1600, he dropped me at Hotel Ascot , Darjeeling, you can also take shared vehicle from NJP station parking area.

I booked a Sumo for Gangtok through Darjeeling Transport Corporation (2256172 ) , which is besides Hotel Ascot, very reliable, paid Rs 1800, driver dropped me at Bus stand at Gangtok, outside Taxis are not allowed in Gangtok, I had to take another local Taxi for Hotel Mariegold ( booked in advance), driver charged me Rs 200, real taxi fare was Rs 80-90 only. In Gangtok you will get a good hotel on MG Marg for Rs 2000, if you want cheaper - stay in Lal Bazar area.

I paid Rs 1500 for a 3 Bedded room at Mariegold, there are many hotels in this area.

Thanks
Alok

Gentlemen and friends,
Is there any budget hotel in Darjeeling which also has provision for car parking? I am looking for rooms having a tariff not exceeding Rs 2000/- per day for a double bedded room.
Thanks,
Rahul

True. The road goes uphill sometimes, sometimes down, and there are curves. It didn't seem too challenging to us, but then (a) we live in a state of small mountains, so it all seemed familiar; and (b) we had a driver.

Yes. I am always more comfortable with cars rather than going by train, at least when travelling for a distance of less than 800-1000 KMs. Even last year I had been to places in Sikkim with car. Here is a trip report I posted in one automotive forum and I shall be glad if you just have a look.

Trust me, with somewhat careful driving, it is really very easy.

I do agree, Sir.

Let me tell you that very good new road is built between Sukhna and Kurseong and it is going to be toll road in coming months, buts it is real pleasure to drive on such roads.

Has any IndiaMikers stayed in the hotel 'Magnolia Residency' in darjeeling? I would love to hear the reviews as i am thinking of booking it within a week.

May being the peak season time, most of the good budjet hotels have allready been booked out and i am looking for a good hotel in the central location i.e near Chowrasta mall.

Thanks In Advance

Cool

According to the rating in tripAdviser.com, my advice for a budget hotel is "REVOLVER". It ranked No. 1 in that website. It will cost you Rs. 1000 - 1300 per night in peak season.
