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.

Stayed here for one night. The staff were polite and professional. The room was spacious and clean. Had breakfast here - indian, chinese food. The wifi didn't work well in my room or even the lobby. It was on and off. Anyway, this is a highly recommended hotel in a busy city like Kolkata.

Booked online for four nights. Searched for a facility in the Park area(worked in this area many years ago) and settled for this. No problem reaching the place. Once inside (ground floor room next to reception) (convenient, for I needed to approach them for all the troubles with wifi and shower malfunction) it is quite unappealing. Room size ok ,... More

Stayed here for one night, finding it wasn't that easy & our driver had to keep asking directions, it's on a narrow crowded road but once inside it's ok. The room was clean & large, had a twin room as sharing with a friend, the beds were really comfortable & the shower was great, endless hot water. The hotel was... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Despite the noise of Sudder St the hotel was relatively quiet and welcoming. Room size was fine ; if you truly need a huge room then pay a lot more! The aircon was fierce and we couldn't adjust it but room was v clean and shower fantastic.

Good place to stay. Clean and modern rooms, good breakfast (limited dishes but creative menu), great service, overall value for money. Central Location, Very near to Park Street, New Market and Esplanade.

A fair hotel in the heart of Kolkata. Close to shops, restaurants, attractions, communications, etc. Old hotel renovated into a new boutique hotel. Nice clean rooms but as of most Indian middle class hotels, the rooms are small. It has a restaurant on its premises on the ground floor which remains open till late. The breakfast place on the top... More

Stayed at Bawa Wilson during a business trip to Kolkatta. A lovely boutique hotel in the heart of town. Had a wonderful experience. It's located on a narrow busy street surrounded by the local market representing the character of this old town . I definitely recommend this to everybody.

We spent the first of two weeks in Kolkata here. Small room but we were assured that we had the biggest room in the hotel. The breakfasts were very ample once we got the hang of what was on offer. Do ask for an omelette etc and the hotel is happy to oblige. As we were teaching all day we... More

As compared to the other properties of BAWA hotels, this one simply puts you off from its approach road, the ambiance and the reception area. The rooms are too small to fit in comfortably and top of that adjoining rooms are too close to simply hinder ones privacy and peace.
