I decided to upgrae myself at the end of my trip to India.

The hotel is very nice, but is let down by management:
1) I booked two nights and never had any toilet paper;
2) the safe did not have any batteries. When I pointed this out, the gentleman at reception said he would arrange the repair; the safe was never repaired;
3) the in-room coffee- and -tea-making apparatus was a nice touch, but no spoons were provided; stirring was a problem.

Apart from that, it is ideally situated, if you are into the backpacking scene. The beds are very comfortable.

Newly built and so spotlessly clean and with everything still working, this is a fine contrast to the rest of Kolkata! It's on Sudder Street so well located. The rooms have actually been interior-designed too. Wifi downstairs only. Breakfast OK. Acholol license. Staff very friendly and helpful. All in all as good as it gets for the money in the centre.

Suppose the Fairlawn for nostalgia but we couldn't get in this time (was there 20 yrs ago). We treated ourself after 2 months of slogging around India with the kids. Booked into Lytton and was disappointed. The Bawa is fastastic. Some other reviews confound me. Hard to find! It's smack in middle of Sudder with a huge sign. It is near brand new with all the entails, ie new linens, matresses, clean bathrooms etc etc. The staff are super friendly and not at all intrusive like those clowns at the Lytton. It was less than half the price for my family of four and twice as nice (albeit room was smaller). The extra mattresses are just that but are fold out types that are super comfortable and folded up easy during daytime for extra space. Free wifi in lobby/restaurant but was odd that only apple devices could connect and not windows based laptops etc. Very strange but they said they were looking into.
All in all easily best spot on Sudder for those with a couple-few thousand rps budget.

A nice hotel in the heart of the town, located in Sudder strett, the strett where the most of volunteer Mather Teresa go to sleep.
The hotel is one of the most expencive hotel of Sudder street, but if you need a confortable room whit led t.v.,coffe maker,clean room,wi-fi, plentiful buffet breakfast and frendly-professional staff, this is the right hotel for you.

first of all, the location is very complex and stressful. Similar to pahar ganj hotels in Delhi. Rooms are very small decor is fine and they hve put in effort to make it cozy but could not scceed. Management is not very familier with hotel industry and it is visible during stay. check out took 45 minutes and had get my bill remade and calculated 3 times as they were not aware about what they were doing. Internet speed is good, toiletories are below average and service is not upto makr for the kind of charges they are taking for room rate. go there only if there is nothing else available at all.

A very well placed hotel close to the shopping disctrict. Curteous staff that were available round the clock. I left very early in the morning and still i got help with all the baggage. The room was equipped for making tea and coffee which was very convienient. I would surely recommend this hotel!
