“You get every required thing there”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

I have been there in June'13 and Sep'13 and found very comfortable. Rooms are good, clean, well maintained though small in size. Its a small and well maintained hotel. Centrally located and only two minute walk to office makes it more attractive.

Tried both the restaurant, outdoor well as indoor. Food is good. One thing I would like to mention that if you like to smoke then better opt outside lawn as it would be bit uncomfortable to visit smoking room often.

Some more TV channels can be added.

Overall a comfortable stay.....

I checked in to this hotel on the 23rd of September. The check in was very quick and efficient. Luggage assistance was provided by the staff. The room was excellent anf was maintained well with good hygiene condition .
The matress was very thick and was a big tease to get forty winks however some soundproofing could have been done to make the stay more comfortable.
Housekeeping staff was very responsive but were audable every morning dragging their trolleys.(though I blame the poor sound proofing)
The Hotel has an award winning restaurant that does serve delicious food and the staff are really courteous by nature.
Being in the heart of the city, the food available here is mercifully priced low and met my expectations well.
I would love to come back again and I hope the hotel does something about its soundproofing.

Stayed at the Kenilworth for 2 nights earlier this month. I am a regular visitor to Kolkata and find the hotel to be centrally located. The rooms are clean, comfortable and have recently been renovated.

I stayed in a suite which had a separate bedroom and living area. The rooms have flat panel TVs, Coffee Maker and other amenities. The wifi was free and reasonably fast.

It has two restaurants and a pub called the Big Ben. The food is good and drinks at the Big Ben are well priced. There is a large screen that is good if one wants to watch cricket or other sports matches while getting a drink.

The property is a short drive from the main business areas in Kolkata. Would highly recommend it either for a business or a holiday visit to Kolkata.

Thanks to all the trip avisor reviews , i choose this hotel in kolkata . Well trained staffs , well mannered , a perfect spread of buffet breakfast and most importantly the location . My wife and me stayed here on the 6th and the 7th of this month and the best part was we never had to take a taxi to enjoy the nightouts. Park Street is just 5 minutes walking distance from here which is the heart of kolkata and you can find the best of restaurants pubs n lounge..

Overall a great and a pleasant stay .

The rooms and bathrooms are clean but nothing special or luxurious. The room service is incredibly expensive and the hotel staff are unfriendly and somewhat sullen. The breakfast buffet is impressive and one can request special meals from the chef. Not the best experience of Indian hospitality.

The Kenilworth hotel has an excellent location but one feels a little let down when you enter the hotel........... tiny little rooms, average service and a poor breakfast buffet.
I would rather stay elsewhere in Kolkata
