“Good for its price”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

The location of the hotel is the USP. Middle of the city, metro station is just around the corner, lots of options to eat in the vicinity, helpful staff, the room was quite big and spacious. The food in the hotel was just about okay. The staff is quite helpful and knowledgeable. Eden Gardens (the cricket stadium) is less than a KM. The hotel and the furniture in the rooms remind you of olden times. 2 things which can put you off are the bed (which is quite hard) and you don't get hot water 24*7.
For the price, its a must stay.

This place is about what you expect in India in this price range: large old spacious rooms, hard beds, no hot water (they will bring a bucket), but we found it just too noisy. Our room was right across from the lift. which supposedly was not used at night, but seemed to go up and down all night long. They did say they had smaller rooms in the back which were quieter, but we were three persons and wanted a good sized room. We had actually booked a "suite" which was a bit of a joke-- the extra room was more like a closet. Plus they seemed to be doing construction or something most of the night. Even by Indian standards, we found it just too noisy. The staff however are very nice and understanding, even when we said we had to run away to another hotel. I would recommend it if you can't afford more, but get a room in the back. We didn't eat in the restaurant which is a shame because it looked promising.

Room Tip: Get one in the back!

We stayed at the Broadway for the 2nd time in December 2013 and to be honest I think it was one of the main reasons that we entered India via Kolkata again! An absolute gem of a place, amazing art deco furniture (albeit worn and the better for it!), large rooms and expansive beds that we found to be the most comfortable on our travels.

The staff are helpful and we simply love the bar / restaurant on the lower floor, which has a downtown Chicago 1930's style and does great paneer dishes plus cheap cold beer.

Definitely somewhere to stay a few days as it has such a unique atmosphere and Kolkata is a fantastic city to poke around, particularly places such as the South Park Cemetery.

Our second visit. Very attentive and knowledgeable staff. Old world charm, but don't expect the Ritz. Bucket hot water. Hard beds. Excellent location: across from Metro, around corner from 2 good veg restaurants. Step into Broadway Bar for a local experience. Rs 875/double.

Room Tip: We like #38 -- corner room, top floor, street view.

We have stayed here many times before, because of its handy location to everything. The metro train station Chandi Chowk is just across the road, and cost only 5 rupees to get to the Esplanade where the Grand hotel was and also the street vendors and Newmarket not all that far either. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite, for 1600 rupees a day, but the only downside was the noise from the street especially if you were the one sleeping in the bedroom with the en-suite bathroom and the tv and the noise went on for almost all of the night, my sister-in-law who slept in the other room said that she could not hear much noise and also the mattresses could of been slightly better.

Room Tip: Be careful when getting a room with the bedrooms directly on Ganesh Chandra Ave as there is lots of...

I had a wonderful time. The hotel is VERY homely, peaceful, and has a classic feel and look.
The floor staff, from the shoeshine boy, the laundry man, the servers, the elevator operator, the security man, and the super, all are always willing to serve their guest, and they are very efficient.
The front desk men always greeted me with a smile, and were always extremely helpful, weather you need directions, information, address, or just ideas to enjoy Kolkata, they ALWAYS help you.
As for the senior managers, they are always there to see that the hotel is being run smoothly.
At my stay there, I was there for almost two weeks. NO ONE ever asked me for a tip, they dont even make you feel that they are waiting for a tip.
As for the room, it has everything one needs, very roomy, and are cleaned everyday.
I went there from Canada, and I will go back.
The food is mouth watering, in-expensive, and served in your room.
The best part, my total experience cost peanuts.

Room Tip: Ask the management, and they will tell you which room is most suitable for your needs.
