“An Average Hotel”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This is an average hotel again over priced. Though, the room service and staff is really good, the negative point is getting into the hotel as the Lindsay street is one way from Morning 10.00 to 8.00 PM.

Very crowdy place, but if you are a street food lover, this place would be just what you are looking for..

Hotel Lindsay is one of the best hotels in Calcutta. Room tariff are economical. Best part of it is the location . As it in New Market , , cinema hall etc just nearby walkable distance. Besides the Hotel staff , from liftman , guards , receiptions all are very good , cooperative in all respect . Whenever i visit Calcutta Hotel Lindsay is my first choice.

At prime loication of the heart of the city. Rooms are well maintained. Complimentory Breakfast was really enjoyable as well as high speed wifi. House keeping was excellent. Staff also was very familiar. Room service was very poor. Taken too much time to deliver the orders at room. Otherwise it was excellent experience with Lindsay for two nights.

The hotel is located in the new market area of Dharamtolla. It is in the heart of the city Kolkata. It is well connected by Metro,tram and buses. Taxis are also there. The hospitality is worth mentioning. Courteous behavior by staff of the hotel, quality of food provided are also worth mentioning.. Rooms are well maintained. i enjoyed my stay. Tariff is also very reasonable.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. No sound of AC Unit.

We ended up here after a G Adventure tour. We paid almost double the price of what hotels were going for in the surrounding area.
If this was not enough, on the last night with our group we went upstairs for cocktails. The bartenders had put NO ALCOHOL at all in our so called 'cocktails'. Most of the cocktails ordered were supposed to have a mix of about three liquors and there was none. We are aussies and know if we are given lemonade and flavours rather than liquors. We called the manager and he got our drinks replaced. They were then nothing like the descriptions.
Also the minute our guide left, the breakfast [we paid for] degenerated into really basic Indian - not even eggs [all other hotels had eggs, we thought they were standard fare].
We also had a twin room which was half the size of the rooms which were given to the males in our tour, one of whom was a SINGLE.
Also Im partially disabled [knee] and the lift was used by government offices above us and I had to limp down the stairs on many occasions.

Room Tip: Dont accept a double bed. The room they gave me [and daughter] was unacceptably small. My son had a...

We stayed 3 nights at the end of our tour. It's central, handy to a range of good shopping and great food. The restaurant on the rooftop has excellent food and great service. Two nights we ate there, the TV had a local and very important game of cricket playing live. Everyone had to watch and cheer or moan at the very close outcome (a loss to the Kolkata team sadly). Very nice rooms, excellent laundry service - clothes came back spotless, and folded with tissue!
Courtesy of the reception staff varied enormously, as did the exchange rate, depending on who asked (i.e.our (Indian, male) tour guide got great service, I (foreign woman) asked and got substandard service and lower exchange rate), which was disappointing, hence lower service rating. Breakfast restaurant great. Beds rock hard and our sheets were clean, but stained.

A centrally located Hotel right opposite on of the most popular destinations in Kolkata..the New Market.The Staff is extremely hospitable.Rooms are well maintained .Free hi speed wifi is great.
Breakfast was good.The restaurant on the roof top is fabulous and offers a great view of the city particularly at night when all the surrounding buildings get lighted up.
My conclusion is : A bit over priced but worth a short stay.

Room Tip: The Rooms on the higher floors are quieter and offer a better quality of sleep.
