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.

Location is excellent with both shopping and cultural / historical areas nearby. Having the huge New Market next door is a plus because there are many food options... More

We booked 5 days to stay here, while visiting some friends in Kolkata. We chose here because the trip advisor pictures showed clean rooms, and had pleasant reviews. Unfortunately, when we arrived we were appalled to see the condition of the rooms, the rude and unpleasant staff and the mediocrity of food and drink services. Firstly, please see the pictures...
