We had a very good stay there, room was spacious but very old. I found the rate too high for what you get. However, the food there is amazing and it is prized very reasonably including the drinks. Taxi drivers don't know the place and it can be a hassle to get there...

We found it to be a long way from anywhere. Very inconvenient for center city, stations, sights and airport. Very small and rather dark place, not much light anywhere. Thought there might be a roof garden but not so. Our room was on the ground floor close to the street and hence, somewhat noisy. Overpriced for what it is considering... More

This is one of the nicest hotel experiences I can remember and I spend seemingly half my life in 5 star hotels. If you're expecting white cotton sheets and high design think again. But what you'll get here is proper Bengali hospitality at its finest. The food is to die for. Even the dahi is home made. It's quiet, comfortable... More

I stayed in this guesthouse twice. First booked on booking.com, then in person for one night for ten days later. In both cases, I got a room next to the reception on the ground floor, but different ones each time. Room no 1. was OK, comfortable bed, bathroom with a separate shower, which is almost unheard of in Indian hotels.... More

I was there for 21 days in October. It was an amazing experience. The room was extremely cozy and comfortable and the location is fantastic. The food (an eclectic mix of Bengali, North Indian and South Indian) was out of this world and much better than some of the best restaurants we visited in Kolkata. The homely touch from having...

I was there for 3 weeks in October and it was a home away from home. The rooms were spotless with good a/c. Good size with wifi and flat screen tv. The food was incredible. Better than most of the 5 start restaurants in Kolkata. The hotel staff were all extremely accomodating and looked to make your stay as comfortable... More

This is a haven of tranquility, in the busy crowded city of Kolkatta. The rooms are spacious and clean, the bathrooms too. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the food is perfect. We were a group, and every day we were asked what we would like to eat, and we got it without fail. Time was never an... More

In true sense, Blue Chip is a home away from home. I have been at Blue Chip since 1998. It is amazing to experience flawless services with not an iota of deterioration any time. Credit goes to both Mrs Kuljit and Mr. Subroto Chatterjee for their personal attention to perfection be it cleanliness (sparkling white bedsheets & towels) of the... More

I stayed at Blue Chip for about 20 days when I moved to Kolkata. It was a great experience, the staff is very helpful, efficient and friendly, the food is light and just the kind you want if you are staying for a longish stay. The laundry is returned cleaned and ironed the same day and there is wifi connectivity... More
