We spent 3 nights in Esplanade Chambers. Hotel has its pros and cons. Read carefully and book if you feel the cons aren't prohibitive. Good things: 1. Very close to Chandni chowk metro. Places like Esplanade and many tourist places nearby can be covered by food or using metro from this hotel. No need to spend for taxi. 2. Free... More

This is one of those hotels that you wished you had brought linens from home. The sheets were stained and the pillows were gross.The pictures online are way different then the room we actually stayed in. I guess they have two remodeled rooms, but they were taken. The room smelt of smoke. We complained but they couldn't do anything. We... More

Needed a clean comfortable place to rest and sleep else was mostly out. The location of the hotel is... More

The hotel is ideal for travellers like me on a budget. Extremely clean and well maintained with very friendly and polite service. The concierge is happy to offer suggestions on things do around the City and arrange for amenities like taxis, toiletries and medicines on request. Would highly recommend to friends who are visiting Calcutta on business or pleasure.

My first impression was not great as it is located on a crowded street but they make up for this by providing excellent facilities. Given my budget, it was an ideal place for me to stay. They offer high-speed free wifi, complementary breakfast and laundry service. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the staff was very hospitable. The manager... More
