Where to stay in Darjeeling

A popular hillside resort town with plenty of attractions old, new, natural, and manmade, Darjeeling has a good number of accommodations to cater to the long list of visitors. Hotels and lodges across the main urban area provide the most popular options in town, with some newly built accommodations sitting alongside particularly well-maintained colonial-era properties. Hostels can be found on the side streets in the main urban area, while further out of town sit a number of eco-lodges and old plantation houses, now open as hotels or rental cottages.
