This is by far the worst and most unprofessional service I have ever received. Upon my arrival, I was promised one price which than increased out of thin air 10 minutes later. I have three kids and it was late so out of desperation I agreed to the price. The staff possess no customer service skills or basic knowledge of... More

Under renovation, staffs are not friendly, not helpful but hungry for tip only. We rent a van in the hotel but they cheated us with un polite & ignorant driver, over charged at the end too. The room is small, breakfast is very poor, this hotel spoiled our last 2 days in India.

The staff was literally pathetic. they were very very offensive. the hole is completely different as seen in the pictures. of course they are highlighted to the extreme possible. the supervisor, service boys and the entire management was uncooperative. probably the biggest mistake i did by booking this hotel looking just at the pictures. do not just do not stay...

Stayed here on Feb 2011. Nothing was okay with this hotel except for its location. Rooms were small, bathroom was terrible. The stairs were very narrow & steep (not for elderly people). Service was below standard. This place is a trip spoiler. Never going back.

the pictures on the net do not represent the exact state of the rooms. the entrance is fine, the staircase is a disaster and the rooms are basic. the linen was clean , bathrooms renovated recently, but still a bit over priced. but its very close to park street and thats the only reason i stayed there.

Horrible experience in every aspect! Not only that the place is overpriced, but they even lied to us with the bill and we had to pay considerably higher price. The staff are constantly begging for tips and the service they provide is far from pleasing. The room was very dirty and extremely noisy. The breakfast - worst thing ever! The... More

The first thing to point out is that the Hotel VIP Continental and the Hotel VIP International are separate hotels, albeit on the same street. I have no idea whether they are part of the same hotel chain. We stayed there for 4 nights in December 2012. We didn't pre-book; we just asked at the reception desk whether they had... More

Great location, and the most comfortable bed. We found this hotel on Christmas eve, when there was no room at the inn even at the most basic hotels during the school holidays in Kolkata. We only needed one night, but returned again and stayed 4 nights at the end of our trip. Good complementary breakfast, and cheap laundry service provided.... More
