4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Extremely courteous staff
Amazing interiors of the rooms, though they are small in size
Lobby and ambience are ok ok .
Breakfast is good and has lot of variety
A bit costly.
Located in the heart of Kolkata, you can get real kolkata street food round the corner.
The rooms have any natural ventilations though
Best part ----- East facing rooms and proximity to famous Mira Mandir

Room Tip: Take East facing rooms!

Straight at the heart of the city, this Hotel is one of its class. A warm welcome by a SardarJi at the entrance with excellent and professional staff at the reception. The rooms are elegant and sophisticated. The rooms has facilities like electronic lockers and mini fridge. The wash rooms are fitted with Jacuzzi and great tiles and bath room fittings. The best part of this hotel is the breakfast. Starting from sprouts and fruits with juices, you will find a wide variety and ranges of foods like English breakfast, south Indian, north Indian etc. A sweet candy with a card and a cookies plate at night just delight you before you go to bed.
Please Note: Dont ever try to make a call from the phone available or else you will end up paying bills, which are being charged at a rate even higher than ISD calls to Middle East.

Located in the heart of the city, height of stairs was uneven, lift was very clumsy and tiny, some of the front desk staff was helpful and some of them need improvement. passage to rooms are very narrow. rooms are small and congested. sofas were placed in wrong location. windows were so hard and difficult to open. AC of the room took ages to cool down. food choices was very limited.service in food hall was appalling, melted ice creams was served.

booked by my local friend. nice n friendly check-in staff. all service staff kind with smiling face at all times and ready to help regarding directions,shopping,dining etc.,my single room 308 is almost to garni style-german type, clean bed, woodcovered clean floor, clean toilet with 1 litre water bottle n local journal free each day . coffee kettle is really useful. If the management change the noicy outdated window airconditioner to silent split AC and the bulky TV to flat LCD, I would vote it as the BEST hotel in Rawdon Street (now Sarojini Naidu Street) my stay per night single was Indian Rupees. 4500/- including tax.,appx.Eur.65/-

Room Tip: ask for a split ac room fitted with outside compressor with flat tv. rest is ok.

This hotel is located in the heart of the city, Rowdon Street. This is probably amongst the few goodies that I can think of. Rooms are ok. Food ok. Front desk staff not OK.
Pros - The location, Complimentary water, Tea and coffee maker, Clean Rest rooms, Good bed, Not so bad spread for the breakfast
Cons- Rooms are small and crampy, No Free Wi-Fi, ACs are window type and are very noisy, Old fashioned TV,Staff not upto the mark, Slow Service and a really really slow elevator, Feels a bit suffocated over all.
Distance from Airport - At the peak traffic a little more than an hour. So plan accordingly.
Summary: Good for one night stay. Not recommended for a stay with family.

Room Tip: Not much to say about the rooms. But please check for the AC noise prior to check in. The Compressor...

My client from Europe stayed at this hotel. It is pathetic. The staff is rude, the bedsheets are dirty and the toilet in the room is dirty. The food is bad and too spicy for Europeans. The only saving grace is the location.

This hotel is not updated along with the time. They are still in the 90`s. Rooms are ok ok types. AC are really bad and far away from the bed and placed at such a location that u cannot operate the remote while sleeping and u need to get up in the middle of the night. Hot water is available only during mornings, so if u wish to take a bath at night to relax, then u need to go with the cold water.

Room Tip: dont know really which is a good room.
