I'm not sure which one is a good location in Kolkata, but this hotel is a clean place, like an oasis in Kolkata, close to Victoria Memorial. The building is nice and well designed, most of the details are a good match, it has a good reception area and swimming pool is good, also the social area above the restaurant with the billiards table is good. The staff is polite and friendly, although some of the waiters in the pool area are distracted/slow with the service. The rooms are big and comfortable, mostly clean (the carpet looks a bit dirty, but the rest is ok). The bed is wide and soft, perfect for a good sleep. Tv channels selection is mostly indian, so not much to watch, and the tv is in a furniture lower than the bed so it's not easy to watch tv while you're laying. Internet service is ok (about 9 euro/day). Bathroom is big, comfortable and with good quality toiletries and towels, the tub looks a bit stained. Newspaper is complimentary every morning. Room service is fast and waiters are very polite. Menu from room service has many western and asian options and most of the food I tried was good (not exceptional), but breakfast wasn't really good (pancakes were dry and milk tasted weird). In general it's a good and peaceful place to stay in Kolkata after an stressful day outside.
