It happened to visit Darjeeling on our way to Sandakphu Phalut trek. We reached Bagdogra airport from Bangalore International Airport 2 days prior to the start of our trek ,so me and my friends thought to go sight seeing in Darjeeling for a day.
As we reached Bagdogra airport we took taxi from there to Darjeeling. It was already evening when we reached Darjeeling ,as per the taxi driver recommendation we chose to stay in Hotel Amba Palace in N.C.Goenka Road, Chowk Bazar. Since the driver appeared to be honest and friendly we booked him for the Darjeeling Sight seeing for the next day too.
The Hotel was well furnished and very good. Service was good too. For the food we visited nearby restaurants like Shangrila, Hotel Shimla and Keventers during our stay in Darjeeling.
