The rooms at The Lytton vary considerably so ask to see first if you have the chance. I had a very large and light room on the 4th floor in the back of the courtyard and so somewhat removed from the noise and dirty air of the streets of Kolkata. Spotlessly clean, flat screen tv, no problem with remote control. Bathroom small, but OK. Front desk staff professional and helpful, let me store my bags for free for 2 days though I did not go back to the same hotel.One small nuisance is that the breakfast restaurant opens at a rather late 7.30 so if you need to be early, for instance for a flight much before noon, forget about your breakfast. But overall good value for money, especially as there are not that many international standard hotels in Kolkata.

After tying several other hotels in sudder st for similar quality I found this hotel to be best value. Its right next to the fairlawns hotel where everyone seems to go for a drink in the evening. Managed to get a room at the back for under R2000. The room was very clean and tidy. The room safe was made me feel very secure. The bar in the hotel is very well airconditioned and is open late. Breakfast is above average. Loved the staff. They are very likeably and trustworthy.

A small hotel but with large chic interior rooms, for a reasonable price in a main metro city. Well mannered staff and a British ambience makes it a lot romantic.

It is 35 years old - it looks older and the decoration is dull. Breakfast buffet was excellent, but the dining room is dark and laid out like a buffet car on a slow train to nowhere.

The rooms were big if a little bit austere due to the high windows. The staff were slow to hand over the TV remote controls and to be honest, they were right to be because the TV reception was pretty terrible.

The owner is a nice guy - he was out in the car park each evening and has a fine collection of flash cars, his accent is great and worth speaking to just for that - though the gold medallion and bouffant black/red hair style is worth seeing too... He recommended the Raan in the Zhangi restaurant opposite the Museum of India at the corner of Sudder Street (it opens at 19.30 and is full by 21.00). It was a pleasant place in a city that is quite, quite crazy.

Very friendly staff but why they don't issue remote controls to go with the television is inexplicable - perhaps they don't work! There was none in my room and I was told you have to ask for one. I did and none turned up . I had to ask more than once and when I finally procured one it didn;t work. By this time, I gave up

Hover it is in a very central position
