Samilton offers a good location in South Calcutta with good connectivity to all parts of Calcutta. The staff is friendly. Rooms are a bit small but adequate for a family. Food is good & reasonably priced. Rooms & washrooms are clean.

Small cramped rooms. There was some cleanliness issue but the staff sorted it out. Service can be termed satisfactory but not good. Break-fast was pathetic. The lesser said about it the better. There are lot of options for food in the vicinity.

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...

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.
