filthy, smelly, ridiculously expensive - same price as lovely accommodation elsewhere in India. We huddled shivering in the freezing room under thin damp smelly blankets, damp smelly towels and sheets. We checked out at 5am and after promising us they would not charge the extra nights and sending us to the atm because they 'didn't take cards', they then deducted... More

We are sorry you did not like the Guesthouse . Please note it is a budget hotel , and not a full fledged starred hotel . The budget travellers find the services satisfactory ,as they do not expect star treatment when they are paying nominal tariff, please compare our services with other guesthouse under the same tariff brackets.

It is in a busy road and we need to get out from our car on the other side of the area. We had young children and a few luggages. This is not convenient to pull them to the hotel, which starts from the 2nd floor of a cramped, old building. The ancient version of elevator was not able to... More

Esplanade is really good budget option in Kolkata. Rooms are nothing fancy but comfortable enough with hot water and good Wi-Fi. Staff are friendly and helpful. Laundry is fast and reasonably priced. Although it's on a busy street, we didn't find it too noisy. It is very close to a Metro station, 1 stop away from the main backpacker area... More

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
