On a recent trip to Kolkata we stayed for 3 nights at the 233 Park Street Hotel, what a little gem this hotel is in a city of maddness. Prior to arriving I recieved a very detailed email from the owner providing information on the transport options to reach the hotel and this was really helpful as we arrived at 3am and the taxi driver really didn't know where to go. The Hotel is central located at 7 point and we found it within walking distance of most of the main sights that we wanted to see. The New Market, Mother Terese's house, several monuments all within an easy distance. Also on Park street a few blocks down were some great little cafe's and restaurant's, ATM's the area around Park street is colourful and intereasting. Our host, Balu was great and really made the experience personable, he is very helpfull and has an excellent knowledge of the city. It could be rather daunting arriving to India however at 233 Park Street Balu and his team make you feel very welcome. The hotel itself is small boutique style, there are no amentities as such however the rooms are very comfortable and the one we had very spacious. The hotel is clean, bathrooms spotless. Breakfast is a choice from the menue and is served in the room. Mineral water is provided in the room and we apreciated the extra touches such as freash fruit and Indian sweets which were left in the room. Overall I would say this is a comfortable, well run boutique hotel which I and my family would most definatly stay in again and recommend to others.

The reign of the Zamindars further witnessed a fable like rise in luxury and opulence.The zamindars or the landlords not just merely amassed wealth but also indulged in a lifestyle that had left indelible marks not only in their living rooms in the old mansions but also in the prevailing culture of the city, its cuisine and even the customs of hospitality.Hotel 233 Park Street - A destination, back in timeKeeping in tune with the rich culture and lifestyle of Kolkata, Hotel 233 Park Street is much more than a hospitality endeavor targeted at providing accommodations for the guests and patrons.

This vintage boutique hotel, placed in the ground floor of an imposing Colonial mansion is a result of a cherished idea by its owner, a passionate antique collector himself, to offer not only the best in comfort and amenities, but also a slice of the city's cultural history to make one's vacation in Kolkata truly memorable.Right from the copper lined brass canopy above the front door to the dome shaped lobby and reception area, history comes alive within these walls unlike any other hotel in Kolkata. ... more less
