We traveled from Gangtok along scenic waterfall laced road to Lachung in North Sikkim in last week of October 2016. We had some idea about what to expect at Modern Residency Hotel on that cold afternoon, but what we saw far exceeded our expectations and needs. Very Warm welcome by staff, who checked us in quickly.

Modern Residency in Lachung is a hotel that you first think is a monastery! It is located just before you enter Lachung when coming from Gangtok, and looks different and tasteful. The room was compact but decorated well, with large windows on two sides so that you can have views of the town. Food was served in the hotel itself... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. This is a vegetarian hotel but the food is excellent. Served hot when we are ready. The staff is extremely helpful and at your service all the time. They take great care of their guests. The location of the hotel is also good.

Very courteous staff.They received us very warmly and enthusiastically offered steaming hot chai and pakaudas. Seemed like a huge blessing after a 7 hour... More

Lachung is a small village and is only emerging on tourist circuit now. Hence the hotels you expect there are very basic. We went to Modern residency with very low expectations. However what we got was better than expected. Nice architecture and decor. Basic but tasty and good food. Views from hotel are very good. Rooms are colourfully decorated but... More

Stay here for the views from your room of the statuesque mountains rising up in the distance. If you are planning to go to Zero Point, do stay here for the night. The army camp is a stones throw away. You can see the China border from here. Welcoming staff, good service and homely food. The rooms are big and... More
