Hotel Casa Fortuna
Ranked #23 of 224 Hotels in Kolkata (Calcutta)
Reviewed December 9, 2013

An excellent hometel,which offers decent and well appointed rooms for business travellers.
Though room size is modest one has the best possible ambiance and is most centrally located in heart of the city.
It is in close proximity of the famous Park Street,which is a hub and throb of city life.
The room service and house keeping are good and a good variety of cuisine is offered on the menu.
The Food and Beverage service department has ample room for improvement.
The front desk is very warm and courteous.
Recommended for business stay while in Kolkatta.

I stayed in this hotel my first weekend in Kolkata. As a single female traveller I decided to stay here and I felt very safe and comfortable here. Rooms were not big but there were a good size with clean bathrooms and very modern decor. Efficient air conditioning as well.

The breakfast was fine and a good choice. The restaurant is reasonably priced although probably considered expensive by indian standards but by European standards it was reasonable. It's a strictly vegetarian restaurant but that doesn't limit the menu. It was all delicious. I did however have to eat one meal in my room simply because it was a Sunday and the restaurant was so busy. But because I was jet lagged I really didn't mind. I could have waited for a table but I choose to eat in my room. I enjoyed the experience! I ate a few of the paneer dishes and make sure you try the mocktails (especially the curry leaf one!) the food was some of the nicest I tried in India. Clean and cool restaurant and modern. Not the norm in India!

The hotel is conveniently located for the shopping centre which has a number of shops and some restaurants there and a cinema. I went to the cinema and then the mother house on the Sunday because there is very little else to do on a Sunday. To get to the shopping centre just come out of the hotel and turn left into the street. Walk past the flying monk restaurant and to the very end of the street. Then turn right and the shipping centre is there. Max 3 min walk on the uneven pavement! Also within walking distance to the planetarium.

The flying monk is another nice restaurant nearby which had lonely friendly staff. The food was a tiny bit more expensive but again only by indian standards and not at all by European standards. I had delicious dumplings there.

I very good hotel and free wifi which was efficient and very useful for me to help me locate myself and work out where to go.

Very helpful staff and you can also change money in this hotel. You also get a complimentary newspaper each morning.

As we were to end our journey at Kolkata and had to book a hotel in a good locality, perfect for our shopping and eating all the junk food of road.

We went through the list of hotels checked prices and found this hotel ideal location for everything. The Room tariff are also perfect and as per location and services the cheapest on this road. They are rated 3 Star but i can say their services are more better than a 5 star.

The Morning Breakfast is complimentary and has an excellent choice of food. The Room size is small but not bad. The interior is good and the room service is excellent.

We also had a complimentary Dinner which they gave to us from their Ala carte as whatever we wish to eat from Starters till desert including cocktails and soft drinks.

The Staff are all very friendly and guide you perfectly as what are the best shopping or tourist destinations in and around Kolkata.

One positive thing for some or Negative point for some is they have Pure Vegetarian Resturant only and they do not serve or encourage any non veg food in the Hotel. The quality of the vegetarian food is excellent and a must visit place even if you do not stay in the hotel.They also keep Food festivals or special events in the hotel please check if any event is due during your stay.

Local Taxi are available in plenty outside the hotel and everywhere in and around the city. They are cheap and better to hire than to hire a taxi from the hotel.

For Rood side food do try the Jalmudi the Kati Roll, Bengali Sweets, Road side Matka Tea, Matka kulfi or Ice-cream. Puchkas (Pani Puri).

If you visit K.C. Das for Rasagolla you can also try Raaj Bhog or the Maharaj Bhog they are excellent. Radha Ballavi is a must have item and most commonly served Item in the outlet. Most sweet shops serve it with dum aloo but they serve it with chana dal . You can also try Misti Doi, Rasamalanch, Kheer kadam, Kalo jaam, Dhakai kachodi. They also have some innovative dishes like the Italian samosa, corn samosa.

Room Tip: All rooms are of same size and do not have any great view outside, so it does not make a difference...

My husband and I stayed there on 26th October, which was our wedding night. We were not disappointed. In the middle of the city, the small rooms are understandable. It is a compact place and something larger is not really expected. The services are good as were the facilities in the room. We had asked for a flower arrangement for the room, and had paid a minimum advance. However, unfortunately it had rained the earlier night and early morning as a result of which the city was flooded and they were not able to do the flower arrangement as requested. But I would like to mention here that they returned the advance money paid to them for the same. It is a vegetarian hotel (which we came to know from the internet during our searches), but the complimentary breakfast was really good! We do recommend this hotel to anyone

Stayed here for a couple of nights on arriving in India for the first time. The locations is a little away from the tourist hubs so it wasn't too noisy and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food in Casa Kitchen was great and the rooms, although small, we're clean and we'll appointed including nice, hot showers. All in all, I'd highly recommend this hotel.
