A good budget hotel with great location. Like one of the other reviewer pointed out, leaking taps are a bit of a problem, but not so big as to merit a single star. The complimentary breakfast was quite good, even if it was repetitive, room service was so-so. Connectivity, availability of taxis and access to public transportation was fantastic.

Stayed at this hotel recently - no frills, nice property, in a good location, quite reasonable priced as well.. Even though I was booked in a room of the standard category, after seeing some of the bigger rooms I requested for an upgrade which was accommodated. Theres a cafe where I spent one evening with a friend, and the variety... More

Please avoid this hotel . Overlooking a shabby hovel (claim to fame Vidya Balan's Kahani), the hotel seems to have been influenced by a few of the characters in the movie. Callous , irresponsible , and terrible service. No one at the breakfast counter ,waiters came almost after half an hour. Room had a draft . Taps leaking. Have advised... More

This was my second stay in Metropole. Returning customers are happy customers. Kolkata can be a difficult place when it comes to hotels. You either have the very nice, International quality hotels such as Hyatt, Oberoi, and The Taj. Or you have the very inexpensive local varieties that are not what I would consider acceptable as a hotel. The former... More

Neat, clean rooms. Compact shower. Quick check-in and check-out. Central location. Convenient for business travelers. Small cafe attached. Though the cafe food was below average. Limited parking area.

Average Hotel. No frills. Food ordered thru room service was good. The major disappointment was - no breakfast buffet and we had to order breakfast which also took time. The rooms were fine. The bathroom towels were worn out a bit. Parking was also an issue. May not choose this hotel next time.

This hotel is a surprise, mainly because I hadn't heard of it earlier. It's a compact corporate hotel w great service and food. While I stayed only for 2 nights, the overall experience was definitely worth it. I have stayed in other 3 star hotels, and the tariff is usually more expensive. Rooms are clean, wi fi is fast and...

This is located right in the heart of Kolkata. Nothing fancy but basic functional hotel. The room we checked in had an AC that was making some noise. We are shifted to another room promptly. The staff is courteous and well mannered. The only complaint I have is that the towels provided were really old and worn out. I don't... More

Stayed there on 15th Nov 2013. Booked it based on tripadviser's review. I was disappointed after getting into the hotel. The rooms are cramped and there are seepages on the wall causing a pungent smell. The hotel lacks in professionalism so far services are concerned. The lady at reception was least concerned about guests, most of the times she was... More
