“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2011

My third stay in 10 years. Was delighted to go back, at some level. It has its old world charm, and their staff is fairly friendly and effable.

It originally was with the peerless group, but for the past 2-3 years, the management is with Sarovar. Rooms are good. But they seem to be saving money on a lot of things and it shows.

I liked the food, which was the main reason for my selecting this property, but, this time, the quality of lower, as compared to the earlier two times.

I don’t think I would like to go anyplace else, mainly because of the wonderful people they have.

Oh yes - they don't have much parking space. You will have to have your car parked outside, in a paid parking.

The rooms at this hotel are fine, not fancy but acceptable. There were several issues with the hotel. First, the internet access did not work. Second, none of the TV stations came in clearly. Third, You can not use an AT&T calling card with their phone system or make a standard over seas call. Fourth, if you are an average height person of European decent you will not fit in the beds. I am much taller than average at 6'5" but my legs overhung the bed by at least a foot. But the biggest thing that turned me off so badly is that the staff is just rude. If you have any issue like I have listed above do not call the front desk to get it resolved. They do not care and frankly do not want to be bothered by your problems.

The photos used to advertise this hotel do give a slightly false impression of the hotel standards. It is not overly expensive but for the price I think you can do better. The room could have been cleaner. the meal in the restaurant was very overpriced compared to Kolkata average prices and the inconsistency of staff helpfulness was disappointing.

I stayed in Peerless Inn, 12 Jawaharlal Nehru Road, Kolkata 700013 on 17.05.2011. It is an excellent hotel with very co operative staff and excellent service. Room rates were very reasonable as compared to many other cities. Room get up and service conditions are superb. Food quality was very good with less spicy and homely taste foods.

I would prefer to stay in this hotel during my visits to Kolkata in my future trips.

I thank the management and expect all success to them in future.
