“Good Place to Stay!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

If you can look past the narrow entrance and the funny elevator then it is a great place to stay. The room was small but adequate for 2 people . I think they have bigger rooms but they were already booked as we went during the durga pooja season. The TV and AC were functional and worked just fine. The bathroom was clean and shower was better than i expected. The location of the hotel was great as the metro station is just a 5 mins walk away.
The hotel manager Mr. Aftab was very helpful as he gave the driving directions to our cab driver and checkin process was smooth and swift. The hotel staff is was amicable too.
Overall its a great option for travelers on a budget!

P.S. - I have one suggestion. Right now one can only book a deluxe room on makemytrip website, please make provisions so that the executive rooms can be booked online too.

Room Tip: Opt for executive rooms as they much more spacious and worth the upgrade

The hotel Manager Mr Aftab was the best ever hotel manager that i've ever met in comparisons to all the hotels that i've stayed in all my travels across the world. He is always there with his ever ready smile and in landing a hand. The staff, was great and recommendable. The rooms is clean and good for stay. Overall, they had made the stay fantastic.

Although the hotel is situated in a busy street , a calm ambience prevails inside the rooms.A decent hotel with affordable price to stay in a metro city. Amicable Staff is a plus. Adequate amenities are available with a well cleaned rooms and toilet.

The staff were so friendly and kind. They did all kinds of things for us that we needed help with which they didn´t have to do. They were just brilliant. The rooms were clean and tidy, they were not modern but they were fine. it was quite noisy but Kolkata is a very noisy city. The location was great as it was centrally located and also close to the metro. There were many restaurants nearby. The wifi signal was very good. There was plenty of hot water for showering. There was breakfast service where they would come to your room in the morning and ask what you would like and then they would bring it to your room. It was very prompt and lovely of them. We had a pleasant stay.

I have stayed at Esplanade Chambers twice on visits to Kolkata and wanted to add a review for anyone looking for a reasonably-priced and comfortable place to stay in the city. The hotel is located on Chandni Chowk Street near a metro station. Rooms are on the second and third floors of the building.
Both times I have stayed at the hotel I have been very impressed by the staff. They are very helpful and polite and have gone out of their way to accommodate me. I have stayed in a room just across from the reception desk with a king-sized bed, sofa and coffee table, flat-screen television and large bathroom. The a/c has worked fine but in the cooler month of January I was usually quite happy to just open the window for some fresh air. Wireless internet worked fine. The room was clean and complimentary breakfast is served every morning.
Management was happy to arrange airport pick-up and drop-off and the location can't be beat. Easy walk to Chowringhee or just take the metro or taxi anywhere you want to go. The Gypsy Restaurant on the street level serves good and inexpensive meals.
I think Esplanade Chambers is a great little hotel and would stay there again any time I'm in Kolkata.

This guesthouse was recommended to me by friends and the staff provided an excellent service. The central location means that it is easy to get about the city, with the Metro station being only 2 minutes away. The room was neat and clean and breakfast was provided promptly each morning. There was good wifi coverage in the rooms. The manager was incredibly helpful and knowledgable about the city and always seemed to be available. The airport transfer they organised was a blessing and they even coordinated with me when my flight was 12 hours delayed to ensure that the driver was there to collect me. Thank you for a nice stay.
