I have stayed at both Walson and at the Peerless Inn, which is nearby, within about a month. The Peerless Inn is clearly superior. Walson failed to have complementary bottled water in the room until I complained. The phone did not work. The water was not hot.

I visited the hotel along with my team as per instructions from Andhra Bank's Branch Manager regarding certain Valuation aspects that needed to be checked out.I found the minimum tariff rate is quite high (more than Rs.6000/-per day) considering the fact that the space is crammed with architectural props & the hotel authorities are on a renovation spree, construction has...

We didn't actually stay at the hotel but at a horrible cheap dive around the corner, but we came here for dinner, breakfast the next morning and to use the free wifi. Prices were higher than local food places but not unreasonably high. Food was tasty and big portions. Great service, fast wifi. Breakfast was a big buffet upstairs with... More

We stayed for 4 nights. Good location, cozy environment, clean rooms and bath room. Good Wifi.Complimentary breakfast can be more improved. Only annoying thing was noise of doors and calling bell of next rooms. Some time you might get confused about the calling bell, you might think that some one is at your door. But it was rang at next... More

We stayed here for three days and found the hotel to be convenient. It is located at Sudder Street which has several budget hotels. It is very close to important places, like Park Street and Indian museum. Even though the room was small, it was comfortable. The room service was taking a lot of time. The breakfast buffet was decent.... More

Perfectly decent hotel. Clean, good wifi, hot water, AC works. Buffet breakfast has some Indian staples plus western standards - toast, eggs, cereal, fruit and baked beans. The whole boutique thing may be impractical. Cutesy bedroom furniture means there is virtually no closet space. Untrained ( but pleasant) Indian hotel staff means no one thinks to walk a few meters... More

I was fortunate to have a corner room facing out on to the street on the 3rd floor (I'd requested this). I was staying in Kolkata for a week attending a workshop. The room was spacious, a little tired with the decor, but comfortable enough. I had issues with very noisy neighbours in the room next door, whom management kindly... More

We stayed there as group - I think this was a nice hotel, clean, reasonably quiet (I was on 2nd floor) breakfast could be a bit more varied and - as other reviewers have commented - I would avoid the bar/or only go there and check the bill with eagle eyes... overall I think i can recommend this hotel.
