This is a reasonably modern hotel in the centre of town. Security to get in was tight with guests being electronically frisked and all bags x-rayed. Check-in was fast and efficient. Our suite was enormous and quite comfortable although it perhaps had a slight smoking smell. The sitting area had a large table, chairs and a settee with its own mini-bar. The bathroom was a little old but had all that one would need. Water pressure was strong and the hot water temperature did not need cold water to cool it down for a good shower. The bed was very large and comfortable, the desk size reasonable and there were comfortable chairs in the bedroom. The wardrobe was large with hangers and a safe (which I could not get to work). I could not work out how to get any TV channels other than a few music channels. There is no guide to the hotel (other than a list of facilities and a room service menu) nor a guide to the surrounding area nor to Calcutta although reception quickly provided a badly photocopied map on request. Tea making facilities are provided and although we had the impression (from the paperwork in the room) that we had to pay for each tea and milk consumed (27 rupees), we were not charged for this when we checked out. Two complimentary half litre bottles of water were provided each day which were not really sufficient. Despite the double glazing, noise from the busy streets outside could be heard and on both mornings we were woken around 5 am by loudspeakers outside – perhaps in the bus station, we were never too sure. The air-con was very effective. We ate in both restaurants and in both cases the food was reasonable and efficiently served – somewhat expensive however. We also drank in the bar, the beer was a quite warm, mid-priced as far as our experiences in India go but quickly served with free nuts and crisps. The free WIFI was very fast and there was a good signal in our room – occasionally it switched off and we had to ask for the routers to be reset but it was a delight to have it. Breakfast was ok – we have had far worse and sometimes a little better elsewhere. Checkout was efficient and accurate. Staff were courteous and friendly throughout our stay. We would stay here again without reservation if we were to be in town again because it provides all that one might need and the staff are good.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms overlooking the street

Walking into The Peerless Inn at Kolkata gives you a feeling of the old world star hotels. The hotel is located at an extremely crowded place and there is constant noise 24 x 7. The reception at the hotel was warm, they provide you a muffin as soon as you come in. Maybe because I checked in pretty late in the evening, there were no standard rooms and hence I was upgraded to the Presidential Suite at the same price. It was a big room, with a living area facing the Howrah Bridge, with old world chairs and a center table and a dinning table. Surprisingly there was no TV in the living room - kind of strange! The bed room was also large enough but didn't give you that class feeling. The aura around was that of a typical government run hotel frequented by ministers and government officials. Yes the rooms were clean and well maintained.

The bathroom had a bath tub, and taps, which needed urgent refurbishing - I stayed there for 3 nights but just couldn't get the combination of hot & cold correct! On day 2 the housekeeping forgot took away used towels but forgot to keep the new :)

The food at the hotel was expensive - the room service menu wasn't quite exhaustive but was expensive for what it was worth. The food was decent but didn't deserve to cost so much.

The breakfast menu was also quite same all 3 days - didn't really provide any local taste to the cuisine - something one would expect when traveling to a different city. South Indian dishes, cereals, parathas and eggs dominated the breakfast menu.

All in all, I would say this property needs urgent refurbishing in order to bring about a certain class in the hotel. At present those who enjoy the good old world charm can enjoy the stay there.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room on the higher floor and possibly facing the Howrah Bridge. At least the mornin...

I had stayed at hotel peerless inn kolkata from 11th to17th Feb 2013. The stay was very comfortable and the hotel staff was very polite and professional. A wonderful experience and rooms are very clean. The breakfast and dinner at Ist floor restaurent was lavish. Very good variety and very tasty, may be it veg or non veg.
The best thing is it's location, very near to famous new market.
