We only stayed one night, but this hotel was adequate and in a friendly, well located area. We arrived early from a night bus and had to wait a few hours before our room was available. The room was relatively clean, but the bathroom was a little dirty. No hot water, but this is expected in India. It's not a... More

We arrived early morning and our room was not free yet. We got another room for a few hours, but there had been smoked recently and the sheets were filthy. Around eleven a.m. we got the room we had reserved: claustrofobic, no window, hardly room for a chair. There was a small reception, with ondly three chairs. We had to... More

This hotel lies in the middle of Kolkata in a typical street full of friendly busy people with their small shops where everything and service can be bought. It takes only about 25 minutes walking to New Market. The entrance to the hotel is a little confusing in a small alley way, however it is a good place located on... More

As our first stop in India, we opted for paying a little more for a nicer room. When we checked our reservation had got confused with another day. They checked us in to the smallest cheapest room they had. Honestly wasn't a big deal, but they refused to reimburse us anything which made our experience with the staff and our... More

The room is fine, but the cleanness needs to be better. The floor and the windows were quite dirty. The bed and shower were good. Although, we asked a double bed and they gave us twin beds The neighborhood wasn't that nice, but it is not far from the major sightseeing spots. The breakfast was fine. The front desk receptionist... More

Believe I had a hard time finding this hotel in Chandni Chowk Calcutta, but it was a good stay close to the main road and 4 kms from Park Street. The hotel lobby looks like a place for boarders / backpackers and I didnt expect much when i walked in and the reception place is really small. All said and... More

This was the first time our family have stayed in the Chandni Chowk - Esplanade zone and we love the hotel. Aftab and his crew at reception were super friendly and always helpful without being pushy. The rooms were spotless and everything worked - plenty of hot water, great WiFi and tv. Lots of cheap food options nearby as well... More

Kolkata as a city, doesn't receive many tourists. Because of this, I think, its quite difficult to find a "hotel" or accommodation with standards you'd get in Delhi, Bangkok or any other place that actively attracts tourists and has to maintain a certain standard. This hotel was, similar to another hotel we stayed in Kolkata, quite dirty. Dusty floors, and... More

This was my first stay here and I would definitely return. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful and the room was very clean. I checked out at about 10 a.m. and they stored the luggage for me for when I returned in the evening to take my late flight out. I was also able to pay a small charge... More

We asked a few people after reaching esplanade area but they also did not had any idea. Then I connected to the hotel staff and he provided... More
