“Bad Hotel near to Bara Bazaar”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

I was grossly misleaded to book this hotel and once i stepped in it was a nightmare experience for me. I thought as mentioned it must be centrally located but to my surprise it was located in Bara Bazaar area which is so busy area and the hustle and bustle of the hawkers , whole-sellers and people are just unbearable. Keeping that aside i also feel that the hotel should not be classified as any star and there are hardly any proper educated staff to converse with . There is just one bar in the hotel which is filled with such bad crowd. I just wanted to shift the moment i had just stayed for one night and that's what my experience was . I will not recommend this hotel to any people known to me.

I did not find any flaw in the hotel. This is a well maintained hotel right next to Broadway. Priced appropriately and is well placed in the central part of Kolkata. I stay here on a regular basis as from this hotel its walkable distance to bara bazaar and other markets including new market. The staff is very polite and they serve you at their best. Though it is on the main road still its peaceful. Food is great also you have option to eat down stairs on road side. Only -ve is that there is a Bar downstairs. Though we stayed here as a couple we did not find any issue with the Bar being situated downstairs as even Broadway has the same setup.

Room Tip: Once you check in, do check the TV and bath room.

I stayed in this hotel in JANUARY and in APRIL 2013. I must say this is a really good hotel and value for money for the price the service is Excellent and the room was neat and clean and airy due to the room was in road side. The hotel is located near to dharamtala near to the chandani chowk. I stay there because it a budget hotel not vary far from the city center, the staff are very good and helpful. Every morning they give as fresh towels and bed linen was provided as well as toiletries etc.............
For business people i would ensure as a good place. I visit again and again.

Room Tip: take the room in a back side they are not noise in a road side it is a noise and take it in a upper...

i really enjoyed my 4 day stay at the Minerva. it is an oasis and refuge from both the heat and bustle of Calcutta .. a cool and tranquil--and friendly - place to return to after venturing out to explore Calcutta .It is very conveniently located ,the bedrooms are very comfortable ,the bathrooms stylish and modern (though the rest of the hotel is stylish and very un-modern )and the air conditioning efficient ..the rooms are delightfully cool after the humidity out side .. the place has such a comfortable ,friendly atmosphere .. and it is always a delight to start the day i have on a previous visit to Calcutta stayed at the Same hotel Minerva and although i very much enjoyed my stay at that lovely hotel .. The bar in the ground floor was excellent with the dim light. i really had a good time in this Hotel. And i really suggest other's to this place if they want to travel Kolkata. better stay at this hotel.
