Just stayed here on a quick business trip to Kolkata. The public spaces and my guest room were very dirty. The hotel disco sends thumping music throughout the hotel and street noise is considerable. I sent clothes to be laundered and pressed, and it was poorly done.
Wi-Fi was reliable, but had to call reception to get new log-in information every 2 hours. Yes, it's a business hotel, but the price of a single room--INR 3,000--is higher than I've paid for nicer business hotels in Mumbai and Bangalore.
