Stayed here for three days during my visit to Kolkata in July 2011. This is a nice 5-star rated hotel. I wouldn't have rated it with a 5-star though because I felt that the amenities and the services could have been better. The two rooms we occupied were cozy and the bed was comfortable. The location of the hotel is very good in terms of connectivity and shopping/dining places as the city center mall is within a kilometer of the hotel. However, I found the surrounding area to be quite dirty but that could be said pretty much about the entire city -- Sorry Kolkatans, it's sad but true. There were small tea & tobacco stalls right outside the gate of the hotel and the entire parking area was unpaved ground. Having stayed during the monsoon period, the unpaved parking area always made my shoes dirty. To make things worse, there were pools of water throughout the parking that made the small walk to the inside of the hotel miserable. Moreover, another disturbance was constant construction noise of the metro track right in front of the hotel. Can't imagine how bad it will get once the metro trains actually start running on those tracks.
The room service and housekeeping was excellent. The food was delicious, specially the club sandwiches! The front desk staff was courteous and helpful, upto the 5-star standards. Overall, my stay here was comfortable and pleasant.
