I stayed at the Lytton for three nights. It is very centrally located and if you want to brave the sidewalks, you can walk to anywhere in central Kolkata. The room was decent: clean and comfortable with a good working A/C, The restaurant served very good Indian food and the service was proper and efficient. The Chinese restaurant is decidedly Indian-Chinese food, not very authentic but good in its own right. I found the staff very helpful. I plan to stay there again this year.
