We stayed here for two nights and truly enjoyed our stay. The staff, namely the front office manager, were attentive and very accommodating. For example, we were leaving on a very late plane ride to Singapore on our final day in Kolkata (1150PM), and the checkout time was 11AM. They let us keep our bags in the room until 6PM... More

The hotel is centraly located with well renovated rooms and good resturent. Hotel offers free wifi but no lift. Be careful that you are not in top floor. Offers a decent breakfirest. It is centrely located very near to Victoria Memorial and walkable distance to Maidan metro station.

Astor is a classy hotel in the middle of Kolkata city. The architecture is great, gives a colonial palace feel, the rooms feel luxurious and spacious, practical breakfast and well trained staff. Worth the say and hoping to be back again

The hotel is located at the heart of Kolkata. But in case the cabbies at the airport or railway station don't know where this hotel is, just ask for nightingale Hospital which lies right next to it (That's how we reached there). The rooms were clean and well furnished. The food especially their kebabs were lip smacking good. The only... More
