5 Hotels Just Outside New Jalpaiguri Station for short stay
In a situation where you need to catch a train from NJP the very next morning while returning from Darjeeling or Gangtok you might require a night halt at a hotel which should be at a walk able distance from station.It is also a good idea to be around the station when you have a heavy luggage.
While some good and cosy hotels are located in Siliguri town which is some 5-7 kilometers away but it may take some time considering the traffic on the main road.The hotels outside and near New Jalpaiguri Station are not of very good standards but if it’s a matter of just one night you can sail through.Check out these hotels near NJP.
1 Hotel Hilton
Hotel Hillton is the nearest one to Station located just 50mts away.In fact when you walk out of station you can find it behind rail engine model which is installed outside the station.It is a budget hotel with dining facilities.However I did not find the food satisfactory.
The hotel has 45 rooms with amenities like telephone, TV with satellite channels, Free Wifi, Car Parking, dining, travel desk, doctor-on-call, laundry, and other facilities.Interestingly , I did not find this hotel on any travel portal so you need to call them up for a booking via phone only.
The official url of hotel i got from google map was this http://www.hotelhillton.com
2 Hotel Balajee
This hotel is on the same way where Hotel Hilton falls.The station is visible from Balajee Hotel.It is barely 70 metres from the rail engine outside NJP station.The hotel also has in-house arrangement for food.If you are not very hard on cleanliness then for a 1 night stay you can opt this hotel.You can find reviews and details about this hotel from this page at Tripadvisor.
3 Hotel Tirupati Lodge
In terms of proximity , Tirupati Lodge is the third nearest Hotel near NJP station for 1 night halt.It falls at a distance of 90 metres from Railway Engine Model outside NJP Station exit.It is adjacent to Hotel Balajee on the same road.The hotel has in-house restaurent as well with room service facility.The hotel like the other two lacks in standard but just ok if you need to catch a train in late night hours or early in the morning.The official website of hotel is http://www.tirupatilodge.com
Hotel Miami is just beside Hotel Holydon.It is 4th nearest hotel near New Jalpaiguri Station.The place is around 8-10 minutes distance from station and you will need a rikshaw in case of heavy luggage.The hotel does not have an official website neither i found it on any travel site for online booking.Seems , one needs counter booking for accomodation.
5 Hotel Holydon
Hotel Holydon is located around 500 mtr from Railway Station.It is 10 minutes walking distance from New Jalpaiguri Raiway Station.Riskhaws are available nearby.Another budget hotel , Hotel Baidyanath is adjacent to Hotel Holydon.
It is ok for short suration travelers especially travellers from or to Darjeeling , Gangtok or around as it close to the NJP Rly Station.They have a restaurant that serve cuisines both Indian cuisine to Chinese.There official site is - http://www.holydon.co.in
