“Hotel Lytton - Kolkata, Heart of city, good location, good stay as value for money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2010

Recently I been to Kolkata for 5 days.

I was recommonded to stay at Hotel Litton as I was expecting prime location to stay along with my Budget constraints.

Hotel Lytton is good hotel to stay, located at Sudder Street. Sudder Street is at heart of city, very near to Kolkata Howrah station. Most happening place in Kolkata with lots of shopping, eating and very good place to spare time.

Hotel lytton has good rooms, all toiletories in room given as package i.e refrigerator,mini Bar, Ironing with ironing table, cofee and tea maker in room.

Rooms are elegenat with interior up to the mark. Illumination in room is good as it does not directly focussed on eyes. Hotel is very quiet and inside room you feel very silent i.e. no traffic noise. So end of day i got a very good sleep in Night.

Being located at heart of city, access to taxis and local transportation. is very easy and immediate.

Hotel has got a food restaurant and Bar to chill out in evening.

So end of the day, good experience to stay with value for money.

Everything you expect from a hotel is provided by this hotel. I was to meet a delegate in Kolkata and my company arranged me a accommodation in Lytton Hotel. The spacious was a heaven a business tour like mine. The hotel is situated in center of city so it was easy for me to reach required destinations easily. Then the hotel has a very good multi cuisine restaurant having a wide varieties of food. The room was very well equipped with all the facilities. Though i did not pay from my pocket but i can say that the hotel has a very fair tariff. I would like to arrange myself the accommodation in this hotel whenever i visit Kolkata.

The Litton Hotel is located at heart of the city; in the shopping zone. Location is great. Most of the times this hotel remains packed and difficult to get an accommodation. I got the room here through 4-5 days’ advance booking. The room was neat and clean, comfortable beds but everything was a bit old. Curtains were smelly and moldy, the telephone was dusty, the stairs and hallways were also old; in fact the entire hotel had a faded décor. The lift was quite old – most probably first generation series. The shower was in good condition as well as the toilet.

Room service was a bit slow. Food was good and the service in the restaurant was also good. The morning breakfast was lovely: it had Indian and western combination and good selection of fresh fruits.

It is a mid ranged hotel and preferred for its location advantage. I will not mind staying here again.

At the core of this hotel is its British inheritance, a spunky name on an equally spunky street. This place has the look of an old British hotel converted to a modern four star facility. The rooms are neat and clean but the look of the room reminds you that its really old. Very friendly staff, prompt room service and a booklet full of facilities and amenities truly make this a good place to stay while on your visit to the City of Joy. The airport drop was also friendly and on time. But the serenity in the middle of the crowded Sudder Street is the USP of this place. Quiet in the middle of chaos.

A bit expensive - 5.5k INR for a nights stay is probably the only downer, but I personally felt it was money well spent.

Location is great. right at the centre of the city with the park street market a couple of metres away. however, rooms are average and the service is poor. looks like a unionized staff who will put it on your face that it is not their job and get in touch with some other person concerned for your problem. so reception will not tackle housekeeping calls and vice versa.

the owner (or son of the same) is a car fan and you will find a host of high end cars in the parking lot. makes for a good sign. however room view from windows is abysymmal. even the rooms i stayed in always had the window type a/c's covered with curtains. horrible.

food is good and the service provided inside the restaurant is good. you will find a lot of foreigners staying here. if given an option, i would rather stay somewhere else,

Located in the heart of Kolkata this basic hotel is recommended only if you are looking for a strictly functional property to spend a night. I stayed for over two weeks here and have not much to recommend for it, except the pricing for its location.

The staff are non-courteous and unhelpful for the most part. For a single night's stay however, not bad. Rooms are decent and clean.
