Apart from our Corporate Clients, most of the guests who stay with us either want this location owing to the... More

Slightly away from City Centre but nicely located within Salt Lake City. Clean and comfortable are the right words to describe the rooms. Homely service & treatment by staff. Nicely cooked home food also adds up to the overall stay.

We booked to stay in three different Emerald Residency apartments in Salt Lake during our stay in Kolkata. We were very pleasantly surprised by the level of professionalism of the owner, his courtesy and service. In a city which is vibrant and lovely but sometimes just shows apathy and lazy business practices, this was a welcome change. The staff and... More

Location is safe; room is big and very clean; hot water is good; wifi (free) is fast; food is good; staffs are excellent. The only negative thing to me is transportation, in most of the time, you have to use taxi to get around.

Dear Sir, Thank you much for your valuable time in reviewing our humble abode. We are very pleased to know that your stay was satisfactory and comfortable. Salt Lake is a very homely location as compared to the high-rises next door neighbor, Rajarhat, which are still mostly vacant and moreover, quite unfriendly. However, as you rightly pointed out, the transportation... More
