Hotel is centrally located. Rooms are tidy but cramped. Renovation is going on and it is very difficult to figure out way to reach your room as you have to use the lift on the other side. Buffet break-fast is not provided. Hotel charges "SERVICE CHARGES" on the bill over and above the government taxes. I insisted that this been...

I visited this hotel in the month of December. Staff is very cordial and supportive. Rooms are little cramped. Overall hygiene level is not up to the mark. I have witnessed some marks on the bedsheets though i checked in very late so I could not raise this issue with Hotel guys, but in my opinion this should be inspected...

Samilton offers a good location in South Calcutta with good connectivity to all parts of Calcutta. The staff is friendly. Rooms are a bit small but adequate for a family. Food is good & reasonably priced. Rooms & washrooms are clean.

Small cramped rooms. There was some cleanliness issue but the staff sorted it out. Service can be termed satisfactory but not good. Break-fast was pathetic. The lesser said about it the better. There are lot of options for food in the vicinity.
