“Noisy place with dumb people”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Hotel is a bit old and has some design issues.
Its "underground" disco's noise & vibrations can be heard 3 floors "overground", until 2 am.
A few hours in the hotel and you may start feeling dumb your self.
It may take about 10 mins for the tap to give hot water. I had a cold bath and was shivering all night.
Parts of the hotel are undergoing renovation and may smell of fresh paint (which could hurt your eyes). Elevator are noisy and no one had bothered to repair it.
The mini will be empty yet the cashier will check if you have consumed it.
Breakfast served is quite good in terms of variety and slightly below average in terms of quality.

Room Tip: Do not take the room above the disco.

Hotel Hindustan International more popularly called as HHI is @ the heart of the city & close to the central business district.

It claims to be a 5 star, however when one compares the hotel with other 5 star properties in the city it turns out to be a great disaapointment. Rooms are very shabby with worn out furnitures & fittings.

Complimentary breakfast is good with a very well spread out variety. Food is good at this hotel be it breakfast, at restuarents, conference or in room dining.

Conference rooms are good and well appointed with all modern arrangements, the big plus of this hotel is it`s banquet.

Swimming pool is as vintage as the hotel rooms seems to be a roadside pond with no privacy at all.

If one is expecting 5 star facilities and ambience at this hotel, should avoid staying here.

I spent one night here on a business trip. The hotel claims to be a 5* property but its probably about 3.5* at best. The rooms are in desperate need of refurbishment. The bathroom had mold all over the floors. The food in the cafe was average at best and half the menu was not available. The service in the cafe was very slow. Overall a let down, will seek alternatives next time.

Overall a nice place. Gym is good. Could add individual TV for treadmill with earphone. Weighing machine could be added to room. Sweet dishes were good and pizza was also good in the dinner. Starters and soup need improvement. Due to crowd staff is unable to cope up with the service needs and in the breakfast time one had to wait even for fresh plates which is not good. Absence of service due to overwork of staff make you uncomfortable which the hotel need to attend. Bathroom had a typical smell which makes you uncomfortable. On arrival I was given a coupon and told to call a number for getting a welcome drink which was a 375ml liquor bottle. On calling the number the questioning was not in good taste and it did not look like a welcome offer. I did not request for but it was offered. Housekeeping staff is good.

Had been there recently. Did not quite like the place. Rooms are not that spacious and not upto the mark. Buffet area stinks of fish.. which is very disappealing .. especially for a vegetarian. they should really think of renovating the hotel and live up to thier name.

The overall Experience is not bad with this property, I have stayed here 3 to 4 times ranging from 1 night to 5 nights. The overall quality of beds is good, but the hotel has aged and some rooms are an example of the same.

The service is just ok ok, I have had a bad experience after which I stopped staying at the property, I am a Jain (Pure Vegetarian) and my name says so, I asked for my breakfast to be packed with special instructions about having pure veg. things to be packed, but when I checked at the Airport the packet has boiled eggs, omelet and some sandwich which I found very offending being a vegetarian.

Even the electrical fittings in some of the rooms are broken, this is one thing which should be checked by the hotel at least.

At one of my stays I booked some club room, but was not told about any benefits as suggested in the website. Overall I will just suggest you to stay at this Hotel only if you do not have any other options.

Room Tip: Servers for room service end up demanding tips, so tip yourself to avoid any embarrassments. If you...

We travel to Kolkata every year with our family and since the last 15 years we have been staying in this hotel. The warmth, the food, the hospitality and the friendly staff is incomparable and makes us come back every year.

We love the indian food in kalash especially the kali dal and chicken lababdar.
