TravelPod Member ReviewsChumbi Residency Hotel Gangtok
This hotel has been very satisfactory. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We love the duvets - beds very comfy. We could have a spectacular view of the valley if the mist would lift but it might be the wrong season - April 18 & 19. The restaurant in the hotel is quite good and recommended in guidebooks. Service has been good. I hadn't realized that Sikkim is making lots of efforts to be green and I appreciate that a lot.
