Pathetic, overpriced, unfriendly, bad attitude of staff. Salient points about this hotel in my opinion and experience. This hotel is one of the old-world Calcutta hotels that started business when the British were still around. As a result, their vintage has made them extremely arrogant and high nosed towards common Indians. The attitude of the staff is unfortunately very similar to that of the Government staff of West Bengal. They will ensure to make you feel that they are doing you an enormous favour by allowing you to stay at their hotel.
I feel there is no point staying at this hotel unless you have a bus to catch from the Esplanade bus terminus or have to go to Howrah station from here.
DO NOT keep any expectations, let alone high ones.
