I have stayed here for several weeks a year for the last three years on business. It is spotlessly clean with lovely staff who look after me very well. They are also trustworthy, you can feel safe leaving your luggage and valuables in your room. The beds are comfortable, rooms spacious, the food served is good. Its located close to... More

On the sweltering heat of Kolkata's summer the stay in The Residency Hotel service apartment was memorable stay, and cool. Highlights: * Location - two minutes walk to Gol Park, ten minutes by walk to RB Avenue * Hospitality and Service - courteous and pleasant * Rooms are well furnished and the decor * Food

IF you choose this guest house then please don't dare to complain or share your grievances with Mr Rajiv Singla ( Owner of Residency guest house ) because he might loose his temper and ask you to check out of the guest house immediately. Being the owner of a guest house and being in a hospitality industry, this type of... More

I guess most of the reviews, we talk about location, room comfort, food, service. The Residency is notches beyond that. I have stayed in many hotels across the globe but yet to see a place where your needs are customized, personally supervised by the head of the institution. Mr Singla is not only a good Host but an excellent person... More

Great location if you want to stay in South Kolkata. The hotel is good but could be better for the price it comes. Service is good so is the food which is a tad costly. Rooms and washrooms are clean and the staff are good. All in all a good experience. Specially recommended for those eyeing a south Kolkata hotel.

I've just shifted into The Residency (aka The Residency Hotel) after three nights at another guest house in Purna Das Road, 66/2B. The Residency's beds are softer, so I finally got a half-decent night's sleep, but its internet is unreliable, and the room I'm in smells of smoke. I asked the manager if they had any non-smoking rooms and he... More

It has been always difficult to find a decent pocket friendly accommodation in Kolkata. Hotels are either good but very expensive or other way around. Thankfully this property is an exception. Very friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable stay and decent food. Location is also good to reach all parts of the city.

This unassuming guest in a very active area of Kolkata is proving more than its worth. Three different gates for office, restaurant and guest house! I stayed in 306 in third floor which has a common sit out as well, No noise leakage from outside. The bathroom is spacious and well maintained. The staff are very courteous and room service... More
