Cedar Inn

Cedar Inn profile

First up in our list of top Darjeeling accommodations is the Cedar Inn. Located high above Jalapahar Road, the hotel is distant from the crowded town and seems to be surrounded by pure peace. Previous patrons have fallen in love with its stunning location and the excellent mountain view that it commands.  

Cedar Inn bathes you in comfort and rejuvenation. It is one of the classy hotels in Darjeeling with spacious and clean rooms, furnished with two star-category amenities. The hotel is a steal when it comes to both services and price.


Krishna Residency

Krishna Residency
We highly recommended Krishna Residency to travelers seeking a top-star category hotel in Darjeeling at a mid range price. It stands tall just half a kilometre from the centre of Darjeeling, above the Happy Valley Tea Estate. The view of the tea garden from the rooms is something that you will cherish for always. 

Krishna Residency serves pure vegetarian fares and is quite popular among domestic travellers. You could walk up to the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park, which are both within a walking distance (appx 1 km) of the hotel.

Travellers Inn

Next up in our list of top Darjeeling accommodation is definitely the Travellers Inn.

Anyone looking for accommodation in a Budget Hotel with good ambiance, neat and clean rooms and great services....should pick the Travellers Inn. The staff members at Travellers Inn give exceptional service and do anything to help their guests. The hotel also has a cozy restaurant that commands a great view of Darjeeling and the surrounding mountain range, not even a star category hotel has this blessed view. Mall Road and the famous Darjeeling rendezvous Chowrasta is just 5 to 7 minutes walk from the hotel.

Classic Guest House

CLassic Guesthouse
Our top 5 Darjeeling accommodation list would be incomplete without the Classic Guest House in it. This heritage property belonged to the Smith Brothers back in the day (colonial period) and now it is a small and exclusive guest house with just five rooms. The homey environment of the guesthouse is further enhanced by a wonderful lawn garden in the front. It is an ideal place to relax and bask in the morning sun with a cup of Darjeeling tea. The rooms have a balcony that offers a stunning view of the mountains, tea gardens and the Sinchel Wild Life Sanctuary on the other side. Chowrasta is also just a two minute walk form the guesthouse.


Holumba Haven

Holumba Haven Cottage

Holumba Haven just cannot be missed when it comes to recommended accommodations in Darjeeling. This unique property is located in Kalimpong (a district of Darjeeling) and is a two hour drive from Darjeeling town. Attractive little cottages surrounded by beautiful Himalayan flowers and a garden make up the premises. The owners take great interest in orchid production, they even have a rare collection of orchids in the nursery. The friendly and helpful nature of the hosts further adds to the joy of being in such a wonderful place.
