The Oriental
Ranked #46 of 118 Hotels in Gangtok
Reviewed 24 April 2012

We had initially planned to stay at the "more-hyped" Tashi Delek across the road, but after a 1-night disappointment decided to move in this hotel and we are glad we did. The ambience and service are just great ! And, the restaurant food is pretty good as well (many locals eat at the restaurant, which is a certificate of their good food). Try it for sure !!

I stayed at the Oriental for 3 days in November 2011. It has one of the best locations in Gangtok, right within the MG road. Fantastic hotel, service was a little lacklustre, however location is a winner

Do NOT spoil your The Beautiful Sikkim Trip by booking here... although it would be recommended by Travel Agent...

1. Hotel is of five floors. No Lift. In case, you get a room on the 3rd/ 4th/ 5th... i.e. the end of your journey...

2. No fan/ A/C in the rooms. If you are there during your summer vacation... that's it... you have had it...

3. Right on MG Road... Until midnight or later... tourists keep strolling on MG Road... You can practically here every conversation of every tourist passing near the hotel... (You cannot close your window.. or else you suffocate)

4. After midnight, when tourists are gone... its time for the street dogs... then you get to here their conversation through the night...

5. Small Room... although looks cozy when you enter first... but then when your luggage is in... you keep wondering... who should fit inside.. yourself or the luggage....

Room Tip: In case you have booked it and refund is NOT possible, ask for rooms on 1st / 2nd floor ONLY

Exceptional location. Nice and Cozy Rooms. Only issue is with the choice of complimentary breakfast. Choices are very less. Very neat and clean with very good support staff.The toilets are a bit too small but very neat and clean and hygenic too.

We selected Oriental based recommendations from other travellers on many travel sites and never after that have we regretted our decision :)

Location: The Oriental is located right in the middle of MG Marg, the heart of Gangtok and let me tell you, there are very few hotels in Gangtok who can beat Oriental in terms of location!

Rooms & Staff: Apart from the location, the rooms were neat and clean, the staff (very) polite, friendly and helpful.

Food: We opted only the complimentary breakfast which was sufficient wholesome :)

Ambience: Its a pretty quite and cozy inside the hotel building, especially on cold nights, so you can have your moments of peace even while being situated right besides the bustling MG Marg!

Thumbs up for the Oriental!

Room Tip: The top floor rooms are awesome since they have a semi-terrace and some open space.
