Easily the best experience ever till date in India. Starting from the door, the receptionist is very communicative and forthcoming. Every employee is genuinely polite and goes that extra mile to enquire, guide and help. I am really amazed. The room service is amazing and the food very very tasty. The spread for the morning breakfast was exotic and everybody... More

I had a 3 nights stay at this hotel in April 2015. It was for a business trip. Though the property is old but its really well-maintained. The food was great. And the staff was very courteous, helpful and offered prompt service which is very difficult to get in Kolkata hotels. Located near Park Street, its close to the Victoria... More

Friendly staff make this a good hotel. It's also surprisingly quiet given its location in the centre of Kolkata. Security seems good with all cars entering checked for bombs and metal detectors at the door. Rooms are good and clean. Good wifi in the room. Complementary water and tea/coffee. Breakfast is fine and no issues with upset stomach! Overall, a... More

Nice, well maintained rooms with restaurants with classic ambience. A special word of mention about the service - we had to check in late in the night around 11 pm, as the flight was delayed, but then excellent Veg combo food was served in the room within 10 minutes, piping hot.. And the check in /check out was done at... More

Located close to Park Street, the hotel is well connected with most parts of the city. The property is well maintained and the staff is courteous. Food is quite nice with their breakfast buffet offering a vast spread. This time also offered a live counter which was very good.

I stayed here in Feb 2007 and my experience was unforgetable. It was my first trip to Kolkata with my better half. And the stay here made the visit special. Beautiful interiors reminding of an old British club. The lift is a classic too with its wooden panelling. The first impression transports one to a time in the past when... More
