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

Don't let the neighbourhood put you off, the hotel room itself is clean and spacious. Stayed in room with the twin beds and the bathroom came with a bath tub! The staff is really friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is decent, and the lift is a novelty in itself Definitely a good place to stay
