Positive Reviews

Historic hotel exudes charm

The architecture of this historic hotel captures the old world charm of India, and guests appreciate its cosmopolitan feel and nice, clean ambience. For an older hotel, guests say it's cosy and well maintained.

Central Kolkata location

This hotel occupies a desirable location next to Kolkata city centre on a busy street near the New Market area. Guests say this central locale makes it easy to go anywhere in the city. The street is very lively for guests who like a bit of action, and it's centrally located for shopping as well as exploring the nearby markets and eateries.

Good food and good service

Whether it's breakfast or dinner, guests say the food at this hotel is excellent and of high quality. Guests can opt for either an Indian-inspired breakfast or a Western one, and there's plenty of fruit, juices, and coffee and tea. For dinner, guests say the rooftop views of the city are excellent. They love the great food and drink, as well as the outstanding service.

Negative Reviews

Bathrooms below expectations

Guests are disappointed to find some of the bathrooms in need of refurbishment. They say that many of the fixtures, including shower heads, don't work or are installed improperly. Bathrooms are also small, and travellers report that the showers hardly work, with often just a drip of water coming from the shower head. There are also reports of dirty toilets.
