Inspired by travel tales, friendly encounters and the need to meet the ever-increasing challenges of running an independent bookshop, “Bookman”, the owner of Rachna Books has now re-opened a part of his home for the book-loving, globe-trotting travellers to put their bags down and have a quiet, restful stay in Gangtok.

Bookman’s BnB has 3 comfortable rooms one floor above the award winning, world famous Rachna Books – known for a collection that is most frequently described as “carefully curated” and “eclectic”. Rachna Books have been organising and hosting events of great variety since 2002. It has come to be the meeting grounds for artists, authors, musicians and their audiences. You never know just what you might catch while in Gangtok.

Café Fiction downstairs on the road level has been a melting pot for idea exchanges and inspirations over tea, coffee and snacks for book-lovers and storytellers in equal measures. You could pen down a haiku over our organic green tea or exchange tall tales over a tall glass of elaborate Vietnamese Cà Phê Sữa Dá here.

Stay with us


Private and spacious, Bookman’s BnB provides the perfect setting to share your travel tales or to just sit by yourself to reflect on your adventures after all those days on the road.



While the two front facing rooms (Blue and Green) with a view have balconies, the third room (Red) offers the quaint coziness for those not too eager to start the day early. All rooms come with attached bath, the essential room amenities, LED telly with HD channels, free wifi as well as few other amenities on request.


A small seasonal stream that flows just outside the premises attracts playful squirrels, whistling chirpy birds, bees and butterflies of all sorts during the day. At night, tiny frogs, cicadas and the stream itself sing you nature’s lullaby.
