Hotel is well located, rooms comfortable and staff helpful. But unfortunately it suffers from the Calcutta curse -bedbugs.
This was the end of my holiday and I was looking forward to relaxing for a few days. Room 101 next to reception was being photographed for makemytrip and looked surprisingly clean. But after the first night I woke up covered in bedbug bites, I stopped counting after 40 bites. I packed up all my stuff and was moved to room no 102 later on. Room had a strong smell of the spray and I was assured it had killed all the bedbugs. Few minutes after getting into the room in the evening, the biting started again and it was easy to see the little buggers running for cover on the white sheets.. Well, time to pack up again and I was moved to room 112 on the 4th floor. Strong smell the spray there again but it seemed to have done the trick as I was not bitten.
In overview I would say, if you react strongly to bedbug bites or are afraid of carrying them back to your own home, avoid the hotel. Which is a great shame as otherwise it would be a good place to stay.
