    I wish to plan a trip to Gangtok and I have been working out the costs and taking into account the flight costs and eating food there my budget for the hotel would remain on slightly the low side. This means that I would have to choose from a 3 star hotel instead of a 4 or 5 star.

    I would like some help in finding some 3 star hotels in Gangtok, so I can work out my final cost for the trip and if need be adjust in other places.

    I can pay anything up to Rs2800 per night if that is ok for a 3 star hotel.
