Wonderful place for Business community to stay during their visit to Kolkata. I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Lindsey. Request to experience once. Enjoy fitness in morning and delicious food 24 x 7 from room services. Location is absolutely in central Kolkata just opposite to New Market. Most happening place of Kolkata to move around in the evening time.

First of all, I would like to mention that I had picked up this hotel for booking only after going through reviews by other like minded people. So, I was quite sure that services provided by the hotel including amenties provided and cleanliness shall be as per my expectation.

Surely, after arrival at the hotel on 7th July' 2013, I was wlecomed by the hotel staff at the counter very cordially includiung the security guard. The only thing I was slightly surprised to find that Identity cards for each of three of us who were all family members were asked to be produced which I did not expect. If it was a formaliity for security, I should have been intimated in adavnce or a notice/circular should have been made available in the net.

Any way I have found the room tidy and room services very cordial. Quantity and quality of food served at the room was standard and was prepared with the right qty of oil and spices. However, the breakfast provided in 1st floor dining hall was found to be cold and some of the menu were missining i.e south indian dishes and the western dishes. However,if have to rate the quality of breakfast, I would like to rate it as average.

Once I tried to have dinner in the 7th floor roof top dining room, where I found that AC was not working. I found that roof top dining place was packed with customers mostly having beer or hard drinks.So I did not like to go up to the dining hall again.

Any way, my stay in the hotel was pleasant and I would like to stay in Hotel Lindsay again whenever I visit Kolkata.

Room Tip: To choose a room where there is no noice coming from the A/C plant or something like that

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..

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.
