“Clean, great service, would stay again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at the Chrome for two nights. I was very happy with the room as it had a comfortable bed, great shower, comfortable armchair and plenty of western TV channels. The service is excellent and we would definatley stay at the chrome again.

I stayed for 2 nights, Room was very good , location of the hotel is on the busy AJC Bose Road. Therefore it can be noisy but still ok. I found that I could not lock the bathroom. Besides these minor things it was a great place to stay. I just took breakfast in the hotel. BF was great. Ambience inside the room and in Khanasutra (BF buffet area). on the second night there was a party going on the top floor which was a disturbing factor...

In short:
- awesome rooms and beds - clean and so comfortable
- good food - especiialy delightful and memorable breakfast
- excellent location - away from the tourist trap area, and in a position where you got a good experience of real day-to-day Kolkata living after a stroll around the block
- staff tried to be helpful about activities (cricket tickets, botanic gardens)...... although generally got it wrong (this is India!)
- Good value - apart from the bottles of water ($$!!)

I had an unexpected overnight in Kolkata due to flight change and chose this hotel due to the reviews. It was not a disappointment. Met at the door and walked all the way through registration and to the room by a polite young man. Given a refreshing drink. The shuttle is pricey but well worth it - nice Toyota SUV with A/C. The room is nice - room service has a varied menu, not too pricey, and was very tasty, albeit not gourmet. Plenty of food for two people if you get a single "Knock Set" meal, which will run about $15.00 US.

The only downside for an airport overnight is that with traffic it took 90 minutes to get here! It might be fine if your arrival and departure are not during peak hours, but that's a long time. But if sticking around in downtown Kolkata a couple days, you won't do better.

A good choice, though i was recommended some other hotel. They have a lounge bar, can be noisy but a nice happening place. Nice spacious rooms. Good food. The restaurant was very nice. Had all our meals there.

Great location in central Kolkata.

Staff here are excellent, rooms are modern and comfortable with good AC.

Free WiFi is a big bonus!

Food very good at both restaurants. Can be tough to get a taxi from the street outside the hotel at busy times of the day.

A nicely located Hotel with a swanky atrium; good dining, nicely done-up bar and Bistro (Chinese!). A dance-club and spa are in the offing. The staff at the concierge and the diner were extra-ordinarily courteous, not just business-like polite. Overall, a nice stay. May visit again!

Room Tip: All rooms have a canvas blind; except for natural lighting, one may not need to open the blind! Ther...
