This is the third time I stayed at the Peerless. All of them were business trips - so the tariff is not a big issue, but I keep returning here. The best thing is the location. Right in the pulsating heart of this city, close to the markets and entertainment. Easy to get cabs at any time of the day or night, and cabs are always willing to go there at any time, too. The metro station is on the same block. Railway station not too far off, either. Great view of the maidan (the green belt) and some of Kolkata's historic landmarks from most of the rooms.
The tariff is quite competitive for the facilities offered. Don't expect a wide range of toiletry in the bathroom, but there''s a message that anything you need will be arranged for! The food is quite good (excellent buffet and specialty restaurants) and so is the service.Security has been beefed up this year, which is quite a relief.
Opportunities for improvement (mostly minor stuff): housekeeping could be better - getting your room cleaned as per your convenience is tough. The other thing is that guests are not properly informed as to what's free and part of the tariff, and what's not. So some facilities go unused - which is a pity. Also, the key-card has hiccups. I've been locked out of my room late at night twice. Once all the data had been erased, (probably because my cell phone was kept near the card), and the time programming was wrong.

This hotel is modern and the rooms are good. The downside is that everything is really expensive compared to similar hotels i.e room service, laundry, restaurants. The receptionists were moody and not very helpful and the trip that I organised through the hotel did not turn out as promised.

As a single female traveller it was okay.

This is a good hotel with fantastic staff. The staff at the Peerless made our time in Kolkata very enjoyable. They sorted out a days tour of the city with an amazing driver who showed us all the sights, he even kept away touts at the Kali Temple! The gentleman at the travel desk gave us lots of advise on where to go and eat in Kolkata and our next destination, Darjeeling.
The hotel has a 24 hr coffee shop that does great coffee, tea and cakes and an authentic Bengali restaurant. The food there was incredibly tasty- again the staff there were very helpful on what to order and eat.
This hotel is much better priced than the 5 star hotels and delivers the same service (no pool) and location.
