Great hotel, nice clean quality rooms, good breakfast, friendly helpful staff. A nice break from the rough and tumble and noise on the crowded streets. situated on a famous tourist street c lose to the city centre but a superb refuge from the noise with its own courtyard plus an outside breakfast area.

I booked this hotel in hopes that it would provide the comfort and amenities that I so desperately needed during my breakneck tour of North India. I was living out of a backpack and Calcutta was the last leg of my two week trip. I was craving hot showers and relaxing television - both of which had been advertised! Needless... More

The bathroom showers doesn't work properly and the hotel authorities are very reluctant, they don't want to fix it. The breakfast is very poor. The... More

Haven't seen such a small and strangely decorated room ever. Room was a tiny room with no space to walk....bathroom was just opposite the bed...doors fully... More

Location of Hotel is one of the plus point as the same is surrounded by Sudder street and New Market, where everything is available easily. Junk foody people will like to stay in this hotel as lots of junk food stalls are available near to hotel in around 1 KM's area.

This review is for 'The Courtyard' restaurant which is the bar/ eatery of Walson Hotel just to the left of the main entrance. All I can say is wow, prices on the menu are not what they appear. The menu states a 'WBST tax' will be added afterwards. Fair enough, I assumed it was the usual service tax but assumed... More

I did not find any reason for taking so much money for the service they offer. The rooms had no fan. If you switch on the ac, rooms get very cold so after 10 mins you need to switch it off. No rooms had balcony and windows cant be opened so you will feel suffocated. Behavior of room service was... More

They don't have bath tub in any of their rooms (contrary to what's claimed on Internet websites selling hotel rooms.. Rest a decent stay...

Located on sudder street adjacent to Park street is the USP of the hotel. Area is bad in monsoons as water logging happens. Good restaurants at park street make up for food if u stay there. There restaurant is not so great. Rooms are clean, cozy and with good facilities. Had a good experience for all my stays here.
