Stayed at Hotel Monarch Aachal, Shivmandir, Siliguri (Bara Mohan Singh) in first week of June 2016. The hotel is on the Asian highway and located close to North Bengal Univ and other upcoming business establishments. The hotel is not far from Bagdogra airport & also close to Darjeeling-Gangtok-Siliguri junction. My views of the hotel is as follows: (1) Location: Good for business & tourist transit passengers (2) Rooms: The rooms are clean, well maintained and daily serviced. (3) Restaurant: This was a big let down considering that there are no good restaurants in the vicinity. Food is largely Bengali cuisine. Bengali Fish curry were good while vegetarian dishes were all similar in taste. North Indian dishes were ordinary while South Indian dishes were non-existent on the menu. (4) Shopping: City centre Mall is about 3 kms away and Siliguri Hill Cart road about 5 km away. Conclusion: Considering the location, the hotel has immense potential for tourism & business.
