For someone who has worked in the travel industry for many years and has stayed in low grade hotels right through to some of the finest properties in the world, this joke of a hotel has to have been the worst I have ever stayed in.
To sum up... I was told that there were no twin rooms available having had a twin confirmed directly by the hotel. 3 different couples checked in after us on the same day and all received twins, all having to call their travel agent who in-turn threatened to cancel their contract with the hotel unless their guests received twin rooms.
We decided to try the hotels's restaurant on our 3rd night, both ordered local and international cuisine if you can call it that.
Both of us were sick all night along with diarrhoea for 2 days down to their food. We had eaten all over Calcutta the majority along Park Street and even the Oberoi which was superb.
To top it all off we were both bitten badly on our backs with over 25 bites each from BED BUGS.
This place is not fit to operate and please avoid at all costs.
I would be interested to see the hotel's reply if they are capable.
