The Samilton is an average quality hotel in Kolkata. During my stay, the hotel was under renovation. It is advised to ask for renovated room to check in. If not asked, you may end up in bad rooms. The service was good, front end staff were courteous. The food was very tasty. The famous Punjabi Dhaba is just besides the... More

Room comfortable and clean, with good AC / TV etc. Breakfast service was promised from 07.30 - but on all three nights of our stay failed to be ready in time. Bar is very overpriced (350 IR for a beer) OK - but you could do better for the price (especially as the breakfast which is included does not arrive... More

Stayed here for 01 night in Jan'2016. The hotel is on a bust street and adjoins 2-3 other hotel. Looked like an old property. Rooms are small , though clean. Breakfast was basic. Not worth the money paid!!

Clean rooms but the food is not at all good. Location is the best part about the hotel but there is lots of disturbance as it is located on the Main Road (Sarat Bose Road) . Suitable for short business stays.

1)Nice hotel for short stay. 2) location is good. 3) food is average and over price. 4) property needs renovation. 5)service is below average. Most of the time they forget orders. 6) many restaurants are nearby and they offer really good food 7) best thing about samilton is they allow outside food.

It was a personal trip during Book fair 2016, I had opted out this hotel to stay, centrally located, on popular Saratoga Bose Road, hotel was mid budget, good reception, moderate room n ambience. A great dhaba nearby makes your stay interesting n being centrally located you can reach out entire part of Kolkata at an arm's distance.
