I have stayed at Hotel Walson on a number of occasions over the past 4 years, and it's one of the very finest hotels I've had the pleasure of staying in. Service has been, without exception, of the very highest level at all times. Do not miss the breakfast: excellent morning fare in a country that normally has no clue...

Stayed here for one night - the good thing about this hotel is its location - very close to the Indian Museum and right in the heart of the tourist district. I would also like to point out that they let me check in an hour early (had an early morning flight into Calcutta). I got room 302 - which... More

We was staying in the third floor, allocated 2 rooms. Rooms are very small, bad smells coming from room, bed sheets and even from pillow cover. Bathroom was too small and dark. Overpriced hotel. Location is good, breakfast was average. Not recommended.

This hotel used to be a good property when they started but the general upkeep has been falling.The walls have gone damp in most rooms and the bathrooms need much better upkeep. The housekeeping fellows were, however, very helpful in trying to find a room that was not damp.The breakfast is goodwith adequate choice.Sudder street itself is not very clean... More

It is a nice, well maintained hotel in my favourite area of the town - the lively Sudder Street. It has a nice courtyard restaurant & bar unlike most other hotels in the area. The service was quite good and the staff friendly. However the bed sheets were a bit dirty. Some improvements needed in that department.
