“Excellent Hotel but rooms could use some paint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

The Park is one of those hotels that you don't just pick for the central location but also for the fact that it's the epic center of night life in the city. The hotel has one of the city's most popular bars, a night club, and a restaurant/lounge bar. And all of them are excellent. Furthermore The Park is your typical/avarage five-star hotel with all facilities that come with this. As goes for most of the The Park branches around India it is very nicely innovatively designed hotel in tune with 'modern' tastes though it may not be for everybody, certainly not for those who appreciate a more traditional/classy take on the five-star concept. What surprised us a little was the quality of the rooms though; great beds, great tv, really nice bathroom... it all felt a little worn. The rooms could use a lick of paint! Chipped edges, small scratches etc. Our room was on the second floor, don't remember the number. Wifi is complimentary for an hour after which follows a heavy charge. I have often said this here on Tripadvisor: its beyond me why five star hotels can't simply include this in the room rent while simple backpackers joints offer it for free at remarkably high speed. And yes, of course, business men can claim the wifi charges back from their companies so hotels like The Park know know that this is where extra money is to be made, still it feels pathetic.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room first. Ours was not particular well kept and could use some paint.

From the moment we drove up the entrance to this hotel, we felt like we had entered a nightclub. The hotel lobby is dark and decorated like a nightclub. We stayed in a suite which was comfortable and for the money adequate. Room is noisy as there is a wedding centre outside and weddings are held daily. Breakfast was well catered. Don't try and buy any good international wine because it is almost impossible, even though it is available on the menu.

Obviously the best location ever! You just step out of the lobby and you're in the heart of Kolkata. The response to an earlier review was swift, well received, and well addressed. I was very impressed by the GM Mr. Bhandari and his attentive staff. The suite overlooking Park Street enjoys a magnificent view of the heritage Queens Mansion. Would I come back again? Yes!

During my trip to Kolkata, I visited The Park hotel very frequently and i loved the the food there. Some Place Else, their lounge set up and Aqua, pool side restaurants are the two of most intersting venue to unwind ur self after a hectic week. The clubs - Tantra and Roxcy has innovative decor and good music. Staff is extremly courteous and helpful. In short eevry time I visit kolkata I am confident that I will visit the property with my friends for the best and suggest others to try out once as this place has the aura to keep you coming back to them again and again.

Great location, bang on Park Street, next to all the best hangout joints of Kolkata. Rooms are ok - thought it could be more functional (the plug points could not accomodate a US plug type). Food was ok. The night club on the ground floor is one of the happening places in town and is a must visit if you have the time. The check-in process took a lot of time and the staff could be a little more friendlier.

Room Tip: If you are a non-smoker, make sure you ask specifically for a non-smoking floor/room.

I am a regular visitor of this hotel. I just love the ambience. The staffs are good and their food is awesome. My favorite outlet has got to be Someplace Else. Just love their music and the warmth that makes me come back again and again. Kudos to the team at The Park Kolkata!

This is my favorite hotel in cal. The location is just outstanding and service is just out of world. At check in they knew us by name. We had taken a suite and you get to use best of the facilities. They have several restaurants and food is amazing, they also have several night clubs and runs at equal pace. This is my fourth stay and I have stayed in almost all the 5 star hotels in cal. Park is the best.
