Hotel Fairmont is a budget hotel in Darjeeling offering nice rooms and amenities in a very convenient location. The hotel is located on Gandhi road and right opposite to the four star hotel Viceroy. The Chowrasta Mall is about 5-6 minutes walk from here. Vehicles pass by the hotel and the road at this point is quite narrow. The Clubside Taxi Stand (across Gandhi Road Police Point) is only 3 minutes walk towards the Mall.
From outside, the entire hotel is tiled with white and light grey tiles having black borders. This building was built in the 1990s and looks quite new. There is an iron grill gate in front of the building followed by a small private car park and then the main entrance door of the hotel. The reception area is in the ground floor and right across the front door. The staff at the reception are quite nice and speak English.
The hotel was owned by Mr. B.P. Mistry, a local. Now his son Jeff Mistry has taken over. Jeff is a cordial and a very polished man. Next to the reception area there is a lounge that has several sofa sets and a center table. The hotel has 21 rooms of different categories. There are Super Deluxe rooms which are located on the top floor and have nice views of the mountains. The are also standard double, three bedded and four bedded rooms.
